Welcome to my new Blog



Welcome to my Blog.
My Blog is mostly about my hobbies, ie Model boats,Cross Stitch, Gardening, Days out and about and Photography with pictures taken at and around our Model Boat club at Etherow Country Park, where I can be found quite a few days a week on the landing stage, you might recognize the hat and the dog rather than me. My models and other hobbies can be found in the tabs at the top above the header picture.
There will also be entries of days out with my long haired Chihuahua "Pepe", weather permitting of course.

Continuing Amelia Rose build.

Continuing Amelia Rose build.

Started to cover the rear deck with the planked piece in the kit 


Then realised I had some Chequer plate plasticard in stock and thought it would be more in keeping with a steel narrow boat.

 t
Think it looks better don't you.


Then thought what the hell why don't I chequer plate the bow section of deck as well.





I'd bought some Mirror screws the other day and decided to attach them to the roof as vents whilst waiting for glue to set again.


There we are


Workman left his tools!.


The roof hatch I'd decided to make a working version was a bit tricky but all finished.


A gas bottle locker added to the bow section as well.


After vacing everywhere with my trusty vac, every modeller should have one in their workshop to keep the better half happy!.

Coated everything with a sanding sealer 


A couple of fairy lights inside to see what it would look like lit up!.


Pepe was in the Christmas mood this Sunday at Reddish Vale park


A Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to all our readers



Pepe as a pup!.

Why was Santa's little helper feeling depressed, He had low Elf esteem!.
