Good to have you back George. Hopefully you'll spur some others into posting their builds.
Great work as usual.

Don't read too much into the feedback, plenty of people view the posts as guests and many members are a little shy to make a comment, especially on a build so good.

John, I'm more impressed that you have a 'Boat Room" in your house.

     Hi George,
        Yet another great Tug I wasn't sure about the funnel when she was in the unpainted stage but she's looking good and boy what a finish. Well done keep them coming.
    Cheers,
        Faz.
The photo is my Lowgarth Mountfleet models but my own design and build (the kit quality and fit was very poor) I scatch built the superstructure from photos of the Foylegarth and scaled it off the figures. Sails superbly.

I've had issues with photos previously and the problem seems to be totally random sometimes it can last for weeks. I suspect that it may be a problem deep within the program. I've tried downsizing images as jpg, tiff and png files. Jpg seems to be the most widely accepted format. I use Photoshop for this but there are several other free programs available for PC.
I generally try to keep individual files under 300kb in size, at 72 pixels  per inch.
Has been working OK recently but in so saying I've probably cursed it.

Hi Steve,yes I normally have no trouble posting pics after resizing them ,but for some reason I was allowed to post a couple but somehow the site took exception to 3others and wouldn't post them,it gets a bit frustrating so I know now how others feel,it makes people give up and not try at all,one of the site problems perhaps?
