    Nice job! It sits nicely in the water and looks the part. Is it the Deans 1/24 scale LCM? I have one waiting to be built, it's about two projects away so a build for next winter...

    Evenin all, I have just bought a Clevedon Steam Virgo plant, which, in the fullness of time will be fitted in to a Mobile Marine Models Tollman tug. This is my first attempt at an unboxing video so please be kind and feel free to offer any hints and tips.

    I believe it is due to file size and limited server capacity, I may be wrong but I had a similar issue a while back. I just post a link to a You Tube video, much easier. .

    My list of current, started and unstarted projects/kits will probably out live me I have that many, although I am a mere boy at 68. Onwards and upwards as they say, my philosophy is that as long as there is something to do and a goal to achieve, then life will prolong it's self. If that makes any sense. Anyhoo, I must now return to the immediate task at hand, find me b****y tv remote. I had it before I fell asleep. Re propellors, Prop Shop here in the UK make practically every prop in the known universe....

    Ross, as well as re phrasing current questions, surely, with the combined knowlege of the membership we can come up with questions on nautical matters, our hobby and perhaps even relevant historic subjects. We can all learn fron one another and expand our own knowlege...

    Instead of scrapping QotD, could we not each do say 4 week stints at being Quizmaster and set 4 questions with proper answers. Obviously quizmaster of the month would be precluded from answering the question. Such a path may prove too complicated to administer but I thought I would toss the idea into the hat so to speak. It would be interesting to get questions from different parts of the world....

    Just had a look on Wikipedia, a "Mull" is a rounded hill, an extremity, headland or promontory, so not actually a stretch of water. You could say it's a stretch of land I suppose...
