    About using "Dettol"!

    And I saw a video of it being used!

    To take paint off a model plane!

    And it worked like a charm!

    My yacht is now complete!

    I've been 3D printing various figures!

    And I've positioned them throw out my yacht!

    It did take some time to print them!

    As, it can take about 2 hours per figure!

    Then comes the painting!

    I didn't have a lot of different paints.

    So, I used what I had on hand!

    As, you will notice!

    I didn't have yellow!

    So, there are no blond people aboard my yacht!

    I may purchase some yellow.

    It's kind of weird a boat full of brunet's only! LOL!

    But, it's a diversified yacht!

    Take a close look around!

    Cheers, Ed

    PS. I'm hoping for a new camera for Christmas! I've gota tell Santa!
