Congratulations on another fine commissioning Si!

Definitely worth cracking open a few to celebrate.



Thanks mate,

always glad to have you along.

a few were duly cracked to celebrate the dual commissioning.

Will be starting another little ship (but in a larger scale ) next weekend. Might get the gear out of the loft and post later.

keel laying will be at Southern eExpo, sat on the London modellers stand.

Thanks for ocming along for the ride mate.

Cheers

Si



Always a pleasure to watch your builds mate!

Keen to see what you've got planned next for our viewing pleasure... Am guessing 1/72 flower class corvette?



Thanks Russ, very kind of you to say so.

Close mate, very close indeed, right ship, but not quite that big.

1/144 Flower class corvette, along with the L'Arsenal weapons & boats upgrade, and a neat little etched set from Starling models.

Have just pulled the pics of the Camera, so I will start the thread this evening.

Cheers

Si



I was so close, yet, so far
