Colin,

Congratulations!  Beautiful tug!

After seeing these photos, I understand what Robin meant by the boat launcher.  That is a very interesting boat launcher.  I've never seen anything like it.

Have a good rest of the weekend,
Oliver

I take it the blanket is for lying on? What sort of camera have you got Colin?

as Joe have been building some display stands for his models, i thought i would check back on my posts to see if i had put a photo on showing my display stand....

its a shelf from a DIY shop this has been milled at the edges to make a lip for the perspex cover, and bits cut off a broom handle for the round uprights cut and milled to fit the curves of the Hull, then coated in a clear oil wood stain varnish.

Nice cradle Colin, dust is a problem on models that only come out now and then, a Perspex cover makes a lot of sense, I bet your wife is still wondering why her broom has got so short, LOL.

My Furie and the Lis Terkol sit under perspex covers in the Dining room, on show..  next to all the trophy's ^^^

i would not survive chopping up the broom, so i bought a brands new shaft and chopped that up, have plenty left for the next Cradles/stands.. lol
