Hi Peter,

Great start and more sophisticated process than my attempt at building the same a while back. You'll enjoy it as much as I did and what a weird scale it was. Here's a shot of my finished Tugboat...

Hi Pete
Having built this recently I will certainly follow your build. There will definitely be times when the bin will seem like the best place for it :smiling3: :smiling5:

Hi Jim I though it was about time I started it, as you know I got it the same week you started yours.
Cheers for the PM reply.
