Sorry it's been long time since the last posting, not much building time.
Some plus, some minus points I would like to share with the forum members.
As you are aware my intent was to light the lower decks with fibre optics cable. I used .25mm fibre inserted into the used inner tubes of biros for the lanterns. The cable was fed along plastic "U" molding and down through a 5mm tube exiting the hull next to the keel.
All went well but there are a few pitfalls I would like to highlight. The .25mm cable is near impossible to push through as it binds up inside the tube, there for I was forced to use a pull through which is not the best way as the cable is very frangible and caused a lot of blue air.
If any of you guys are thinking of lighting a model I would suggest a larger exit tube and thicker cable.

Thank very much for your kind words, Chris, Alan, Ian, Robby and Mr "T".
I am not sure if I will continue with the Fiber Optic cable on the middle deck unless I can find a way take the cable down through the exit tube without damage to the existing lower deck cable. May have to go down the expensive fisherman's loor rout for the lighting.
