Looks lovely Alan.

Your detail painting on the little crew figures is outstanding.

Like the deck as well as your staining has highlighted nicely the caulk lines between the planks - looks really neat without beong overdone.

Thanks Nightwisher, appreciated. Must admit, patience has been stretched a few times. The trick for me is to do a little at a time, trying to do too much in one stretch leads to it being rushed... We'll get there in the end....Cool Cool

Mark, Mick, thanks for looking in and your kind comment. Very much appreciated….Cool Cool

@Mick, Oh how I wish your statement was true. Unfortunately, a steady hand is the one thing I don't have. Truth be known, I suffer from what is known as a Benign Essential Tremor which affects my right arm and hand and yes, I'm right handed. Basically, the symptoms are very similar to that of Parkinsons disease meaning I have no control at all over the shaking in my right arm. If I ensure my arm is fully supported then I tend to manage things like this, albeit slowly. As I get older the condition will get worse and unfortunately will get to a stage where I will have to give up modelling all together. Until that day, I'll just keep doing what I can and remain positive.....

Regards

Alan
