      Thank you guy' for all your kind comments, no I am certainly not perfect you should see some of the mistakes I have made over the years,I keep a reliant scimitar bumper mould outside my workshop to remind me that nothing is a certainty in this game, twenty or so years ago I used to make parts for scimitars and one of the moulds I made was for a glass fibre bumper,easy nice chrome just give it a good wax and away we go,or so I thought,twenty years latter I still have not managed to get the bumper out of the mould,every so often I take it into my head to try to get it out but in all those years it has not moved at all.

      I have been working on some of the small parts this week,these are the port holes that run along the top of the hull,they need to be cleaned up before they are fitted.
