Thanks Rob,

Hadn't thought of Future, like Chris was thinking more along the lines of PVA, but I have a bottle of Future so will give that a go. The problem now is to locate some suitable wire, none of the local hobby shops have anything small enough, so will have to raid my box of electrical cables and see if there is anything the right size.

Didn't get much done on the weekend, found a couple of good port side photos from 41 and 45, so have to go back and make a few adjustments to the scuttles on both hulls to reflect reality. Frustrating, but am thankful I found them now, rather than in a few months when the hull was finished. XNUTSX
Cheers,
Bill

Small electric motors can be a good source of wire Bill.

Been a long road the last couple of years. Took on a senior management role with my local scout group just after the last post and it sort of consumed my spare time. Got the job under control and then seperated from my wife about 18 months ago after almost 20 years of marriage. Ended up fighting a bout of depression and adjusting to being a single parent with a teenage daughter - never again will I doubt the stamina of single parents especially those with young kids.

Long story short back on an even keel and have picked up Pontos' KGV PE set recently and waiting for a new reference book to arrive. Just need to get a head mounted magnifying thingy (the closer I get to 50 the poorer the eyes become x3x ) before digging out the models and starting again. Only gettting the Christmas Day - New Year period off so not expecting to get much done - have to fit in visits home and to the in-laws in that time x28x . Think it will be slow and steady next year.

Merry Christmas and all the best for 2014 to all.
Cheers,
Bill
