    Scorpio, if no one else has already asked, how did you do the railings? They look incredible! I am working on a couple of ships myself and that part worries me.

    Hi, friends,
    Indeed, I use photo etchings, but I myself provide many from cardboard z.b. Rope drum, all parts for breakwater. 80% all parts this is cardboard.
    photo etchings are not always very useful especially whom it goes around construction parts are easy too thinly.

    Thanks for keeping us updated Scorpio! When I don't have time to make progress it's nice to watch someone else's

    OK, here we go:

    Q. How do you handle seamen with bad tempers?


    ...

    A. Send them to anchor management class :roll:

    That one will probably lose something in the translation
