BigGrin Thank you arpurchase Alan and Paul for the bril comments ThumpUp

A bit more work on the SOTS

I have fitted the gun port lids and to stop them falling off I drilled a 0.5 mm hole in the back of the lid and glued a cut down pin in to the hole in the center . I then drilled a hole in the top of the gun port lining and then used ca glue to hold them together ThumpUp

Next job fitting more ropes to the belay pins and eyes Cool

Thanks for looking in rgd Martyn

A small update BigGrin

Started to do the flags i wanted them to look like they are hanging in a very light wind so painted over them with dilute pva and folded them over to look like they are just hanging there and used pegs till they dry ThumpUp

As you can see in the pics i have also made some toggles to hold up the flag Cool

Next job fitting them ThumpUp
