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.

Visit to Etherow 4.4.2017.

Today at the lake it was dull and the rain was just about holding off!.
Had our usual chat with the breakfast club, putting the world to rights, and whilst there saw some of the yachtsmen on the lake, their boats were on the lake, not seen many walking on water yet!.

The Tuesday regulars.




On the way home it was into Morrisons for dinner and their nice Fish & Chips, then a bit of shopping on the way out!.

Once home made a start on the Chimneys, Mate Bob had made for me,



I'd sprayed them yesterday so today it was drill the holes in the roof's for them and take off the masking tape round the collars on the top of each!.

As George Formby used to say "Turned out nice again"

Laser used to get them straight.


Masking tape off and white line added, this is the larger of the two, that's on the rear cabin for the engine exhaust!.


The smaller one for the living room fire


Take them off now to spray paint the superstructure, its getting there!
The other holes are for the roof Vents.


The hull is looking nice now as well, with the Green gloss finished!.


That's all for today folks, just wanted to let you know that I was still doing a bit of work on the boat.
