HI MTM   it is a nice soft cotton handkerchief painted with thinned down green paint, I seem to be getting very short of handkerchiefs for some reason :) :)

Here is a picture of Rana and Sauria on the head of our Tanker, not quite Ridham dock though. :)

Absolutely beautiful model, I am building a Rana as well, not quite the authentic hull shape as yours George  as mine is based on an Artesania Latina Amsterdam hull, I have just joined the forum and will post some pics later on, your photos will certainly help me with some of the detail work,

  best regards John.
