Looks like you have your work cut out for you. If she ends up as nice as your other one she will be a beautiful model. Keep those pictures coming.

Hi Jason, i have just been reading through your thread and what a great job you are doing  :) :) You certainly have your work cut out on the Rebuild of the Nederland ! It reminds me very well of my current project (which is tempory on hold) of rebuilding the YORKSHIREMAN  :)

http://modeltugforum.com/index.php?topic=2083.0

Keep up the great work and the excellent photos of each stage of the rebuild  ;)

Regards, Dan.
Photos / Information, I nearly have them all !
