    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)

    Ed, looking at the solder it looks like the soldering bolt isn't hot enough ,sorry don't know what temp it should be ,mine has only two settings on and off. I'm sure someone will know the answer.

    Hi Nery's, there is no WiFi in that part of the hospital because they were going to refurb it stripped lots of equipment out and then due to cut backs and the building of the new sick kids (another example of Scottish government ineptitude) the work wasn't done.
    No great loss not having WiFi managed to do a lot of reading .
    Hope your keeping well .
    Just heard about Shearings looks like the Prince of Wales Hotel will go down as well.

    Thanks all, had taken pains where the tumor is, they could find nothing but kept me in to manage the pain it was gone after 2 days but they kept me in for a week ,there were only 3 patients in the whole of the cancer wing and we were all in separate rooms weren't allowed visitors and no WiFi .
    I'm fine now and as a bonus my wife Liz got me the book Scale Model Tugs by Tom Gorman.
    Glad to be back cheers MarkπŸ‘

    Remember as an apprentice being sent to a tool shop with a line from the foreman for a long stand and a pair of harlots nipples ,After standing around the shop for about an hour the staff all came out from the back laughing their heads off and I had to trudge back to the yard for a Good ribbing ,15 year Old boys weren't as worldly wise back then .
