As the picture shows things have moved on since the last post. Motors, props and rudders are mounted, and the two main deck areas are cut, the front one is fixed in place. Much of the equipment has come from my Dads "spares box" and some, like the rudders, have been donated by a very generous Bob. (thanks)
On a slightly different note I attended the AGM of Etherow Model Boat Club last night. Thanks to those involved who have named a new Trophy for" the best static model or diorama" in memory of my Mum The Velda Teal Trophy. Mum had been an active member of the club, serving as the general secretary and chief landing stage gardener.
Dad also had some honours, winning the Shield for the years best kit built boat, for his Oil Rig supply ship Aziz
