Erm...Not sure what you're on, Derek - but can I have some?  ;D

Anyway, here are the feathering rods. There are a few glitches I still need to fix, but it *should* work.

Cheers,

Oliver

The Connaught is looking very stylish Oliver, well done!

It's just a shame that the real boat was so BIG, which makes it an impossible subject for a working model for me - Transportation, and my knackered back (held together by screws and plates) would make it impossible to launch :(

Regards
Eddy
