Perhaps not so old. Wikipedia says that Petunia (and Joe) made a return appearance in 2018, 50 years on.

I think I may have been the one to mention fenders and if so I wish I hadn't because I have been right through my collection of photos of working boats and working harbours and haven't found a single photo of a fender pre WWII.

Still very funny after all those years and Petunia still has a prehensile lizard tongue:

 

Edit: I love the way Joe very carefully reads the speech bubble through his binoculars.

Fan bloomintastic layout  Kev! Words fail me. Up to page 126 and the references to Pendon are more than  justified.

I've visited  that master piece for more than 40 years and have every decade since and yours is equal in almost every scenic department if not better. 

Would love to see more of the characters that populate the place but relaise at about 3 quid a piece that could cost a fortune. Keep up the good work as its never finished!

Decided to paint what I built

 

Dammit that's good. The colouring of the deck planks is just right.

That rigging is exquisite! The whole build is so realistic - itreminds me of hours spent as a youth in the science museum admiring the intricacies of  model ships!  Mr Basset Lowke didn’t weather his ship models though. Today he has overdone the weathering with steampunk.

The Squadron Leader was out and about on a tourist trip over the channel and spotted a ship steaming slowly along.

Swopping down and flying into the afternoon sun he caught the vessel from both directions

PS - not quite astronomically correct as the as the sun seems to have changed 180 degrees!!!!…….but I don't think anyone will notice!

Sorry Kevin, first thing I noticed even before I’d got to your postscript.  If she’d been at anchor you might've been able to claim the tide had turn and she’d swung to it...

 

Looking better with each posting, though, utterly believable!

Do you fancy getting down with the kids by gluing some pointless gear wheels on the side, Kevin? 

 

No, that's too far. Maybe just a Skull and Crossbones flag!

Meanwhile, the train now standing at platform 1 is...………..??

 

Sorry, more than small doses of boating make me feel seasick!!

 

But it is a brilliant model.
