I am presently employed (i did not say work) as Chief Technical Officer with The National University of Ireland,Galway. School of Engineering. I am retiring in two years time and am preparing a small workshop to indulge my hobby of Model Making (Boats, Ships and Engines of course). look forward to joining in.

Welcome aboard from the east coast of England, Colmwalsh.
Sounds like you'll fit in well with the crew. Plenty of engineers and modellers knocking around the ship.
Enjoy the trip.

Colm, a warm welcome to Ships Nostalgia.
Make yourself at home and join in our discussions at any time.
I think you'll be very pleasantly surprised at our model ship forum and gallery.
