Hi Msea,
Glad your feeling a bit better. 'Warspite' looked nice even in its distressed state at the meeting on Wednesday.
Keep plugging away.

Two lighters made to bring the scrap metal ashore.

A couple of tugs and a small coaster made to make the scene look busy.

Thank you Kevin.
Decided not to put brass rails on the tug -- they look the wrong size. So cut a bit of brass shim and will use this instead.

Decided the small scale ships and lighters needed more so have started to make a couple of ocean going tugs to vary the size of the ships around HMS Warspite.
I was just thinking again -- I must stop doing this -- but if a warship has been paid off and is on the way to the breakers is she still a HMS , or does that go when she is paid off ??????????????

HMS Warspite taped up ready for camouflage paint. Crane now has opperating wires fitted and the ocean going tug is well under way.

Thank you Zak.
The main cranes fitted and started on the small deck cranes to put things into the lighters and also to remove the propeller.

Hi Msea,
It's all coming together now. all those bits and pieces, the tugs, the deck cranes all are beginning to tell the tale.
Well done, I like it a lot, and they way you are going about it.
