Thanks Dave,
I will add the light cover to the stern mast, Also about done with the engine hatch, did a compete restart. Have started to build the throttle control box , Jeff D sent the plans. again given the scale its a challenge, working on getting the right length of the 3 throttles in 1/30 is allot of trial & error. Again thanks for all the advise

Let's see, an 8'' wide x 6 5/8'' x 2 7/8'' tall throttle works out to about 0.267 x 0.221 x 0.096. Sheesh you'd better get some microsurgery equipment!

First my hopes & prayers go out to everyone during theses unsure times. The craft new all love seems rather secondary. One of my suppliers is from Spain which is closed for shipping, I’m still able is get deliveries from Cornwall boats for now, will stock up from them and work from back stock for the rest.
Started laying out the control panel area, the test fit went well, Made the throttle control box, Ok following the plans from Jeff D I took my shot, again being so small scale is tough to get exact overall
it’s still rough, needs some smoothing but its close, with a little rework It should fit in.
Search light, I think it came out ok, possibly the knob on the bracket needs to sized down, but I happy so far, the lens & background will go in after final paint.

Question does anyone know where I can get a Ron 5 patch??

thank you all for the info, the build is keeping me busy during these troubled times. Like many Vets of this site we have seen hard times before, and know how to count to the folks on either side of you. Thanks to you all this fascination turned obsession is becoming a great journey.

I hope all are being safe.
Scratch Built the mast, took 3 weeks & 68 fabricated parts, After final paint I will add the light & cover & the power cord.
