    Excellent work Fred, chapeau ๐Ÿ‘
    Now all you need are a few bods lounging about on deck, and a skipper ranting at them from the bridge๐Ÿ˜
    What scale is she?

    Nice build Fred, have had one of these for over a year
    now, bought it from a show semi built, but too many boats and too little time.๐Ÿ˜

    btw. the TSEKOA II is 1/32nd scale.

    Cheers, Pete

    I was thinking of using some from preiser figures, like the workers in safety vests.

    Hi Rookysailor

    Yes it is 1.32 scale,

    I got mine back in 1996 it sat in my loft until about 2000 before I started on it, then when I did start I lost interest for a number of years, then some two years ago I got it out of the loft and started again, but only bucked down to finishing her in the last six months.

    When you do start working on her just keep checking the plans as on mine some of the parts are not mentioned in the instructions.

    Preiser is a good choice Fred๐Ÿ‘
    Not cheap by any means, but very good.
    Some of the most realistic looking I've seen.
    Go for it๐Ÿ˜Š Do your boat justice.
