So thats where my slippers went!!! Joking aside I think it is coming on nicely and I await the next instalment. I'm sure it will turn out as good as your other models if not better as you get more skilled. Well done.

Doug.

it's coming on nicely now, starting to look like a tug boat and less like the bottom of my slipper. Ha Ha.
