The Dutch Courage was a "Model Slipway" kit.

Yes, exactly. I just want to see it on the lake, hull is not to deep. Will see. On begining of next month this ship will be finished.I replaced all plastic parts by fiberglass ones, all white fittings was replaced by resin ones.For me fittings from white metall are to heavy

This is a great build already DDC!
I hope that Crane is going to be functioning! The Console looks like its coming along great as well. Any plans to light the console panels? looks like you got the room!
Cheers
