not finished detailing the below deck area yet but here is where I'm at so far. Barrels and boxes... aaagh......
Sorry but not going to be too fussy below decks on this effort as most will go unseen. A few years back I completed a project and gifted it to a relative, all the fine detailing (blood ,sweat, and beers) was left covered, known only to me. Speechless .......... pass the kleenex.

Fabulous, and with envy I can only say how much I miss building. Real life takes over sometimes folks

Cheers guys so great to hear from you. I have not been able to do any building. My wife had a big accident and brain damage as a result. As a bonus she now has epilepsy as well so it’s all hands on deck literally and I could hardly bring myself to look at the forum as I miss the building a lot . Hopefully things will get better soon and I’ll be sniffing CA glue again

This is really shocking news and I hope and wish that the situation will get better soon an your wife can recover to some extent.

Best of luck Chello . Your positive attitude to the situation will be a big plus to you and your wife. May your deck find an even keel soon.
And................
Thank you all for your BD wishes. You know, you only get to be 80 once so will lift a glass to all.

Sunday afternoon and a mini heat wave for we in Vancouver. 94 degrees is unusual for us and not conducive to messing with a model boat. I'd rather be sailing for sure but buried that anchor a few years back.
Here's my update but please don't stare at my jig, I take all my frustrations out on it.
