I hope she's still out there somewhere!
Well I know my opa was a consumate professional no matter what he did. I can be sure he did a good job on the build but your right, it would have taken regular care and attention over the years. Of course theres the chance it's rotting in someones yard but I wanna find it either way. I build models from the plans, I'd love to build full size but with todays costs including the ongoing's I'd find it unlikely I'll get round to it. I'd want to build a 60/70ft version anyhow, something I can live on you know. Models are just as much fun and definately easier and cheaper to maintain. Thanks for the message matey.
