Looks like the plan worked. Trouble is, some of this will be hidden.

Lots of brass, no comments needed.

Hi Haddock,

I could say 'Bent and Twisted' like the builder...!

But seeing as I'm sharing a room with you, it's not a good idea.

A 'Black Eye' in the middle of the night, not a good outcome...!

Instead can I say, looks great, as usual from a master builder, (see I do grovelling too.....!)

                       Bit more brass added. The railings on the platforms on the bridge structure are a tad too long to conform to the correct shape, something that crops up from time to time. Might look better with some thick paint to hide the joint.

The more I see your excellent etch brass work the less I wish to start mine.

You need to think "if that silly old fart can do it, so can I".

Bit more done.
The curved rails are etched brass being treated in the Haddock blacking bath.
They fit on the marks that are printed on the wood decks.
Finally fitted.
Last two shots are part of the bridge structure, the antenna were a bit challenging to bend and fit,
don't look bad from a distance.

Hi Haddock,
I have never seen rails fitted to ship like that before.
Wonderful stuff, keep it coming.
