    Eezibuild 50+RAF fire rescue boat ,laser cut from 3mm MDF oak decks ,don't know if there was a fire boat numbered 1956 but it was a good year so that's the number decided the fire sign and numbers should be air force blue laser cut from photographic paper ,vents were 3D printed still some finishing touches (5/10)
    (Tug Boat) TBC
    Scratch built loosely based on the St Chanute ,made from recycled wood the winch is made from parts of an old sewing machine the mast is copper pipe and an artists paint brush handle the rails are split pins with 1.6welding rod soldered the rigging is cord from a venetian blind dyed using indian ink ,the only bought items were the propeller ,anchors ,paint and glue (ESC: scratch build) (5/10)

    Hi Rob , when I used to work ?at the college we used to silver plate small copper and brass components using Nushine plating solution you just applied the solution with cotton wool ,its quite hard wearing and if you scratch it just reapply over the scratch .

    So continuing with the zero budget raked around and found a couple of old rattle cans ,Peugeot silver (don't know where this came from ,never had a silver car) and a bit of a can of Renault Black, the control consul a wee touch of glow in the dark paint (that's the two Black photos with the greenish blobs ).

    Started on the cockpit ,decided that Sharknado needed a pilot ,cant have a one man sub without "one man", pilot was acquired from grandson's box of trained killers ,a quick piece of surgery with a gentleman's saw and a change of uniform hey presto "Fin Tempest" the square jawed younger brother of Troy, WASP stealth fighter sub Sharknado's pilot .

    Decided the underside didn't look quite right so blocked in the front and shaped it to be more aerodynamic (waterdynamic) ,tail and pectoral fins added .
