Hi PDs!

I wanted to get Connaught out of the workshop today to practice with the Video camera - BUT it's far too windy even to move her! I have just taken a movie of her on the bench to give you an overall idea of her and I'm twiddling my thumbs waiting for the wind to drop.

All the best

Stuart

Excellent build!
She will look great on the water I'm sure.

Magnificent Stuart.   :respect  I like the authentic port list you've incorporated in the video to reflect the wind outside  :sunglasses
Cheers from Bob Golder

This wind is doing my head in!  Five days now and it hasn't dropped below 45 kph - maybe calmer at the weekend.

thanks for the comments!

Hi Stuart,

fantastic model! This is really a model built of museum quality. How I can get a plan of it? Of course I will pay all costs of the copies and mail.

Kindly regards

Thomas
