Just a question John, how did you start off? Did you get blueprints and scale it down?

The very same along with the other 43 youth crewing the vessel. At the normal 12 day cost of over 1000 per head it was quite an expense for them I guess. They have a Youth Trust fund which is to develop youth and aid in education, I'm guessing its all tax deductible and excellent PR !

I thought for sure I had the acronym wrong - but that's all I could find. That is good PR - but surprising. I can't imagine anything like that here in the US. We can't even get the local casinos to help fund activities here that would bring in tourists. Americans are very generous globally but extremely tight locally.

Now she is looking the part. A good job done Sir. I still cant believe that you just knocked this up from a few sheets of styrene. I take my hat off to you.

Numbers and face details, the first 2 compartments of the coach have some glazing now too.
