Thanks Howard - back is OK but I am only doing a bit of modelling at a time - giving the back a chance to sort itself out.

Work on the steam cutters - the photo is from the Super Drawings in 3D by Stefan Draminski.
The 2 plastic sections have been fastened together and when cleaned up will have the funnel replaced with brass tube and other very very very small brass bits. So listen for the naughty nautical language - and sorry Haddock for the low quality of the brass work.

First photo is the rudder and prop in plastic and the second shot is the replacement brass bits.

New brass rudder fitted to the smallest boat a 4 oared launch.
Had to cut a small groove in the aft end of the boat to help hold the brass rudder until it had been held by the glue.

Not bad brasswork Martin. Better than mine.

Great patience, Grasshopper.

Brass rudders added to each boat and portholes added to one of the steam launches. The smaller boat has been painted with the inside hull white and some of the bits picked out in brown.
