In short - No - Only working on her at the weekends at the moments, hate the winter nights. My work room is a shed, a nice shed, but a cold one. By the time I get home from work the heater needs to be on for an hour to get up to working temperature, I work out doors and like to be warm at home ! - with these dark nights its not worth the trouble.
Wheelhouse is now complete and the ariel bridge fitted on top. Lights checked, and have just completed (today) soldering up the railings for the deckhouse. It will take a full day to clean them up now before painting.
But Hey, there's no rush. Val has started stripping the kitchen, so looks like I'll be doing a spot more of decorating
Had a quick look through the gallery, and GEs really coming along nicely now
Cheers - Ken

I'm waiting to see the finished product as well ! - dragging on now
Busy making all the rails at the moment - flat brass etched ones - making them is quite easy, its the cleaning of all those solder joints that take the time.
Cheers - Ken

We welcome well written contributions from Website members on almost any aspect of Model Boating with a particular emphasis on practical hints, tips, experience and builds.
In order to maintain a consistent standard and format, all suggestions should first be sent to me by Personal Message for approval in principle. Only a very limited amount of time is available for editing contributions into a suitable format for placing on the website so it is important that the material is well presented, lucid and free from obvious spelling errors. I think it goes without saying that contributions should be illustrated by appropriate photos. I shall be happy to give advice on this.
The Member Contribution area offers space for short informative mini articles which would not normally find a place in Model Boats magazine. It is an opportunity for Website Members to freely share their expertise and experience but I am afraid that virtue is its own reward as there is no budget to offer more material recompense!
I look forward to receiving your suggestions.
