    Hi Martin, My newest 3 models are the ones I recently put up some photos. I am also building an anchor handling tug supplier - an AHTS200 from Damen shipyards. The Fairmile D was completed about 2011.

    Hi Martin, Thanks for the compliments. Much appreciated. I am not one that does build blogs as such, but will post photos of the AHTS when there are some reasonable photos to post. It takes me a long time to make the models and they don't always look pretty during construction.
