Researching on narrow boats I came across this blog
This chap had seen a nice gang plank on a refurbished boat and decided to make one himself.
I liked it as well so set about making one in Plasticard
Then the letters for our initials with Slater's Letters and Numeral's
Then finished off with some wood effect paint and highlighted sides,treads and initials with some gloss
Much easier than the real thing in 1.12 scale !.
