@Ron Dean

Thanks for the fast delivery with the additional items I needed.
Just something with the flags. They are self-adhesive but your instruction sheet still speaks of the ones that need to be glued yourself. I was happy to see that the flag kit also includes the blocks to attach the rigging to. The ones that came with the kit were not really usefull.

Now I have all the items, all that is left to do is finish them all being cleaned, fix the masts, paint everything and put together ^^

Al pictures here are also made today.

Nr 1: Main mast
Nr 2: close up of main mast rigging
Nr 3: Aft mast


That's it so far. After I had taken the pictures I fixed some flags and pennants. No pictures yet since not all of the flags I made were succesfull so I am still remaking a few.

Flags that will be flown will be on main mast:

White ensign (large)
L03 and G12 (Ships number and "I am the guide, speed 12 knots" as in the instructions)

Aft mast: Club flag on one side and the abbreviation of the club in code flags (KMYCA)

Bow flag will be Belgian flag, stern flag is white ensign (small)

All flags apart from the club flag are hand-drawn on a piece of cloth. Pictures to follow shortly.

Thanks.

Due to Corona, the exhibition was cancelled so I cannot take any more pictures at this moment as the boat itself is there atm locked up...

But a small sidequestion. Does anyone here have a decent knowledge about circuit boards and electronics?
