  3. Hi folks Here's my latest foray into the world of super modern mega yachts - "Genesis". In this case, this ship is based on an actual yacht called Kahlilah, which was built by Palmer and Johnson (now defunct). She's still pretty rough at this stage. Lots and lots work still to go. Cheers Patrick

    Thanks Ron MIL is going to stay in hospital until at least Tuesday this week. It’s not all bad. At least I can eat her little tub of ice-cream that comes at lunch! Cheers. Patrick

    Many thanks Alde. That’s greatly appreciated. I know how you feel and you have my thoughts and prayers as well. We lost my Mum in February this year. She was 91yrs old. Take care and stay positive. Cheers Patrick
  6. The "What have you done today?" thread.

    Many thanks, John. That’s greatly appreciated. She was discharged 10 days ago after suffering a heart attack and stomach ulcers. We thought All was good, but we had to rush her back last night. At least she’s in hospital now, where they’ll give her the best care. Thanks again. Cheers. Patrick

  13. Shadow (Mega Yacht)

    Shadow is entirely scratch built model; loosely based on an actual mega yacht called Mary Jean II. The model is is designed so that all five decks can be lifted off to reveal al fully detailed interior, from the luxurious Sun Deck, through to the two decked engine room. Shadow’s two tenders are also included, as well as her two jet skis. Thanks
