    Back to reality. This is the forward deck light. Originally I planned to use this fitting to switch all of the lights on and off. Not sure that's such a good idea now.

ID:	108855 Ah ha. I have discovered that the new site does not like Safari at all but it doesn't mind Firefox. During the blackout the Oscar has been sanded, painted, resanded, repainted, tiled and untiled, sworn at and remasked. Getting the tile pattern right has been interesting. There are so many different patterns in so many different photographs. This is my take on it. Onward!

                        Thanks Mate. Very helpfull; however Safari just won't play at all. I've switched to Firefox and I can now get the advanced editor up and running. Now off to try the resize thing. Thanks.

ID:	108990 The monster takes shape. Some general shots of the beast after I painted it and made it look pretty - it's not going to look like this for very much longer by the way. Also a shot with the Alpha in the same scale.

                                Looks stunning Scott, I love the realistic touch of covering up the props for security reasons. Have to say the you've won me round on the tiling for a moment I though you had gone mad but it really works.
