Hi spitiresooty, on the starboard side there is a staircase from the bridge deck down to the fore deck near the crane. on the port side there is a ladder from the roof of the bridge down to the bridge deck. This ladder is fixed to the bridge wall in front of the portside funnel. Hope this helps.
Hi, I am in the process of building the Happy Hunter now. I have had it in my loft for some years until I got time to build it. I would be happy to post pics of the plans if that would help. the plans show details of sub assemblies too. Hope that helps.😊

I had a look at Blackpool show on Saturday. Sadly, it is not nearly as good as it used to be and there appeared to be no new ideas about featuring the show. I did get a few bits 'n bobs that I needed but I could also have got them elsewhere without paying £6 for the privilege. I thought the lighting was reasonable, although slightly darker in some corners. All in all, I thought Haydock Park was better (but more expensive) and I prefer Ellesmere Port over both of these.😉
