Hi All

I'll keep posting on this forum for as long as it exists, becuase of the quality of the builds and the friendliness of the members.

model I've had plans for for a long time, but done nothing with - HMS Andromeda - schools been off because of the snow, but I'll show what I was up to before the weather intervened. Been on the go now for about 6-7 weeks so nowhere near completed, but...........

as with most of my builds, ply on ply, with some detail in platsic, with the lack of availability of suitable fittings, some of them will be home made.

the whole of 1 - deck will be removable for refit/repair purposes, but for day to day access, there'll be the usual access under the superstructure.
