Thank you for the nice comments guys.

Here I have completed the rest of stage 139 and fitted the rest of the deck furniture etc. plus all the railings and steps in this area.

Gradually moving along then it will be all in the centre around the funnels and the bridge.

140 will be a long one.

Tell you something, the instructions for issue 140 are absolutely useless. When it shows a picture of the mast made with little arrows and parts numbers next to them your then left to guess how they are fixed in place. Had to go back and too different pages and flick through books to get the locations properly.

Here is the mast finished ready for painting.

Hi Guys,
Just thought I'd put this one one the bench as Its not been touched for a while. It's been going for the last 8 years now....

Not much left on it now. Pack 140 is a biggy. Ive done some painting and some building more PE parts. Here are the latest pics.
