  1. Wheelhouse receives it's wood coating I think the aft cabin needs another coat The deck of the aft cabin has received a layer of tissue to simulate the canvas covering Whilst waiting for the above paint to dry I've been finishing the wrecked dingy. This is intended to be part of the detritus on the tide line Talking detritus (which I'm often accused of). Does anyone know of any sets of WWII British infantry equipment in 1/72 out there? Thanks for stopping by Kev
  2. and now she has entered another circle ..... perhaps the most (in)famous of them all Looking forward to seeing this develop Kev
  3. Only time will tell . . . I have a cunning plan but Kev
  4. Just a small update to show progress. First of the wheel The wheelhouse in the process of being glued together Next up the three angled windows across the front.... Thanks for stopping by and your kind comments Kev
  5. Beautiful presentation of a classic boat Good to see the unusual mines ready for deployment A pleasure to follow your build Kev
  6. An enjoyable voyage with an outstanding end product.......... Nice one matey Kev

  8. Cheers Stuart. You made my morning I've just added a 2 tonne anchor to my basket!!! Only problem I can't carry it to the checkout Kev
  9. If I may Rob? You're are quite correct Stuart, in normal circumstances.......... The chain multiplies the holding factor of the anchor. It also serves to reduce the snatching at the anchor caused by the seas above but I don't recall ever seeing chain laid out on deck in ref pics. Reading books of the time, they were more likely to tie up to a navigation buoy HTH I've always wondered , do subs carry anchors? Kev
  10. Great progress... Everything is looking so sharp! Kev
