Things move along in two days

Build day 92-93
Yesterday we went out for the day, therefore no visit to Yarwood, so today we have two days progress to report!
The  first item on the progress agenda, the portholes, mushroom vents, bulleyes and vents were delivered today.  Yippee and sighs of relief all round...but in fairness to Procast, these are the result of a third casting - a new pattern and mould had to been commissioned to get these double glazed ports right.

Tomorrow we will be back at the Barnowl in the morning because Dave Moore, the sign writer, will be there to discuss what is going to be done to Yarwood 


  1. How come you haven't gone for traditional engine controls...?

  2. Hi Rob
    The main reason for not having speed wheels etc. is that they restrict headroom in the back cabin and the back cabin will be our bedroom.
