Thanks islander,

didn't realise until now that 'OO' gauge was 1:76. Could be handy indeed.

Good progress, and I'm looking forward to seeing the new paint.
Same colours?

Suds, all that isn't masked in the pics will be orange!

The antifouling red has already been done and there is a blue band between that and the orange which marks the draft from lightship to summer. Just hoping that when I remove the mask, it doesn't peel the blue!

Aye Brian, even if I get a full day on it, I look and think 'what have I actually done?'....but it doesn't really detract from the overall enjoyment!

Thanks Cor,
And it's good to see you back posting your work on the forum again after your recent worries.
I'm very envious of your model boat lake and it's harbour!!!

Cheers,

I got the hull painted before the summer but, other than making up small fittings, progress slowed up; switched to getting out and about during our glorious summer months!

The beginnings of an inclosed lifeboat; Graupner No.456 used as the hull because I didn't think I could get a satisfactory uniform shape at this scale.
