Pinguin... chased down in the South Atlantic by HM AMC Queen fo Bermuda... but did not catch her. Pity!

Good on you afternoon 'quiche'! Am working a few of small pieces fopr a show in early December.... 6 x 8 of Britannia and Bremen and have bocked in paint of Gairsopper.... very similar as Benavon...was she one of those B Class First War built?

Best,

Stephen

Nice one Stephen, Gairsopper and an other ship which I can't remember at the moment, have been in the news over here recently. Deep salvage, several tons of silver recovered if I recall.

Now then Jim, you're leaving too much time for lawn mowing, half inch rather than 3 inch brushes - but you're beyond a joke Jim, you do some excellent work with a history as well. Good man yourself!
Edgar.
