Hi all well I've added a miniscule amount of the huge amount of pe to this and I've realised someone made a big mistake how do you open these doors.





Encase you can't see from the pics there is a box about 1 mill in font of a 3 mill door

Well it's been a long time since I put a ship on a stand (usually I have them in a dio of some sort) I think the last one I put on a stand was the La Royale de France.
I'm not sure I like the supplied stand maybe I will put her in a dry dock.

Stand looks very basic compared to what you're putting together there.

Like contrast of wood look main deck with light & dark gray superstructure.  Is good.

Hi all well this will probably be my last update before we get back from our hols we will be packing tomorrow night.
Got to say I'm really looking forward to a week in the sun doing nothing at all with a drink in my hand and my every whim catered for.





I'm thinking of drilling out all the portholes (I say thinking as there are a lot of them)
