Noel Crook - Modeller

A French tourist was visiting HMS Victory in Portsmouth
and enquired if the cannonballs were the actual ones fired
at Trafalgar. The tour guide (Obviously ex-RN) replied:
"No madame...your French navy has those......"

Hope all is well with you and Family. Fine myself. Bit on the chilly side but bearable.

Keeping well and still driving around. HMS Victory Bow Section is my latest build, thought about the whole ship at 1/76 scale building this bit has been a real tester.

Have a Great festive season.




Adding a bit of sitting for the crew
it is part of instructions but they don't mention it
only a drawing of it.

Progressing well slowly. Enjoying the build, complicated in parts, keeps the grey cells working.

Victory Stalls

Those were the days!

Dear Richard, yes I'm still going strong. My 89th in December last, still enjoying the build of Victory.
Keeping well and fit with no ailments. All the Small bits now, drills etc. Read last week about Michael Huttons 90th.
Have got to get in touch with him, found the programme for 1950 "Juniors Unlimited" in the Globe Theatre.
Lots of names from that time I still remember. Michael and Ian Epps (rest in peace) are in there.
Keep safe and well my friend in this weird world. Noel
