Sounds like the Gremlins got into this one, Warren.

Best to wrap her up and move on!

Still, for closure, we'll need photos

OK OK.. When I get those last few things on next wekend... Gremlins indeed.

One big lesson was don't start a project until you have EVERYTHING you need.

Warren,

what Mark says - she's a real beauty!! Despite all your problems on the way, you managed to overcome them and your Rodney is looking just splendid. (Still hoping/waiting for a 1/350 version in styrene...)

Cheers
Jan

Thanks Mark and Jan.

Started a couple of wingy things for a break until my Bismarck project.

Regards

Congratulations on another fine addition to the Inman fleet MkII

Well worth a few for the commissioning ceremony!

For an odd looking bucket, she sure looks great!

Just wondering if you missed a bit of paint on the fore mast though as there seems to be some bare brass visible just below the observation platform?

Like Jan, I'm hoping/waiting for the 1/350 version before I take the plunge....

Hoping too that we will see some pics of those wing things

I had to remove the paint to get the mast through the hole in the PE. Forgot to paint it again.. oh well...
