    Thanks very much for the kind words and support folks. I will be replacing the banding as the ones on it now are too thin.

    The "working area" is now done with the spout installed and new bands in place.

    Thanks very much everyone for you comments and support. I really appreciate them. This was a fun project and I wasn't sure just how it would turn out but it is OK for the Georgetown Sub.

    It just amazes me how you take some cardboard and/or bits of wood and turn out such high quality masterpieces, fantastic job Robin!

    Steve, I started scratchbuilding about 5 years ago when I couldn't find a kit for a model structure I wanted so I tried making one. It turned out so so, but it was a start. Now when I look at some of my earlier efforts I think that I should re-build them because I have learned so much from others. There is no question that the more you do, the better you get at doing it. It does take some patience though and you can't hurry the job.
