    I bought an unfinished Graupner paddle steamer kit which was in a bit of a state and spent many happy hours making her look loved. The hull and paddle wheels were in an acceptable condition but the deck and superstructure left lots to be desired. The previous owner had purchased the motor which was 50.1 geared and pushes the boat along well all other bits including 'smoke' brass portholes and new superstructure added by myself.
    She was a delight to finish and looks an absolute dream on the water. (Motor: MFA 919D series) (8/10)

    Thanks, one of my biggest regrets since starting boat modelling is that I sold her, she was an absolute beauty, very unresponsive but just too big to store at home and the boss gave me an ultimatum when I was considering my next build.
    I have had to start storing in the garage. I expect that I am not the only one who has to do what the boss `suggests`.
