The final results of Jim's build of the SS Drumgeith.

Ok chaps!

My quickest model for many a year!! a mere 22 days.....
--including a fulltime job running my business, family,

and for the UK.. unusually hot weather ==> beach and classic cars!

Granted--at first sight it may appear 'just' a simple cargo ship-and in fairness...it is.!

BUT-- I spent virtually no time removing stuff I did not like, flash or lumps- nor repairs and filling holes etc.

The kit was well cast and executed--detail I added because I wanted it better still!

BMK's brass tapered masts were a nice bonus and saved me from having them made;
....parallel rod masts will never do again!

My thanks go to BFM for producing such an esoteric little ship- and Bob Wilson for helpful photos and advice.
