Russ and Michael,
thank you very much for still sticking around, following and for your kind comments!!
Well, I wish the yard would be in full swing, however, it's not - it is just a temporary uprise in activity before the whole yard will move.
And here's the final update from the current location, I squeezed in some bench time between packing boxes and preparing my move, that will take place over the next four weeks.
God thing is that there is not so much stuff to move around this time, still plenty though...bad thing is I have to do it all by myself and my car, on the weekends. So one trip per weekend, that's why it takes four weeks...so glad when I'm done with that...
But something more positive - a little progress...
That's how I left her last week
I figured that some small parts are missing, that don't show on any instructions - in particular rails around the ladders.
Two lengths of Lion Roar railing (which is extremely fragile) bent around one 'tooth' of my bending tool that fortunately has exactly the right size.
And on to the next level of the bridge.
However, that looks wrong, there should be railing facing forward and some ladders to the upper area. Well, I do know it's not correct as I did it, some gizmology, but I think it's better than before.
Started on the outer breakwaters, more supports needed, only the middle one installed so far.
On the lower bridge only some defectors and the carley floats missing (and some railing). Slowly getting there.
Here's where things are at the point where I stop building but start moving my HMS Hood and the whole shipyard. So next update from a new shipyard (or the old one in a different place), probably not before late October / early November.
So much for now, and I hope you'll still be following in a few weeks!!
