I thought about liking this post, but when I realised how much remaking of the forward deck is entailed... Especially as most of the hull is bolted together! Thank you for this, it shows how to proceed with this conversion which I was trying to figure out the how to. Steve
The highlight of the Model Engineering Show at Alexandra Palace a few years back was seeing the progress that Derek had made on his Comet and the solutions to problems and advice that was given! So Derek, I look forward to your Famo Build equally!
