Fascinating detail work!!!! Beautiful. You should take over Harland & Wolff... can you build at scale 100:100 ?

What is next on the drawing board?

Odd question for you. Have you every done a model and you have done the plans from your own 'design' rather from a real plan/ship?

hi, Stephen....……..no, never designed my own model...…..to be honest, I actually haven't the imagination to do that...……..I have the technical drawing skills having been a tech drawing teacher for 20 years, but just not the imagination.......I must follow those that have done to get anywhere near.
my next project is to be a Tyne class lifeboat, using a grp set of mouldings available from a manufacturer, and after that I an going to do my favourite trick and build 2 different classic lifeboats together, of the same historic era......the late 1920's. one is a 61' Barnett Princess Mary that served Padstow in Cornwall, and the other is an Australian lifeboat, a 45' Watson built under license from the RNLI and served at Adelaide, called Queenscliffe.

those should keep me busy well into 2021 lol.
