First bit of paint on the dragonfly but not happy with the rotor colour -- so shall repaint them. 
Also a start made on the sea around the ship, next job is to mix up a good brown for the sea and more definition of the sea around the bows.

A little more work done on the dragonfly and a couple of tugs to tow them around the deck.

King Killer and Tatty fitted to base and mud colour on the sea.
Might change the brown colour a bit, it was OK then put a brown wash over it and not sure about that. Have run out of 1/700 scale figures to put on the Tatty and Killer, will fit them when i get some more.
Base surround made just needs cleaning up and some black paint and its finished.

What will the over fertile imagination produce next I wonder?

It looked good in the flesh, so to speak.

You don't have to worry Kevin -- all the time will be taken up with fixing the mast.
Taking it out of the car boot for the club meeting the mast touched the boot lid and damaged the set up. The top cross mast had been soldered and it just bent, the tripod assembly had been super glued and has come to bits totally.
AHHHH WELL  -- its only a hobby and its for FUN so no problems
