Another lightship that got away…

A fine scale rc model of the “South Goodwin” lightship sold on eBay last night for a paltry
£199.00 – I would have bid on it myself but the seller couldn’t organise packing for courier collection. That meant the only option would have been to travel from County Wexford in the SE corner of Ireland to Sheffield in the English Midlands, collect the model and back to Ireland. Two sea crossings and a lot of rail travel that would have cost me another £300-400 on top of the purchase price. If I was 20 years younger, and less impoverished, I would have gone for it but my heart just wasn’t in it. There will be others, or so I keep telling myself. See what you think – approx  31” long and 6” wide – a gem!
