Coming along nicely. :-) My only observation would be that drain tap could do with being a bit lower in the plate. Good inch of water left in the bottom that can freeze in winter and then POP. I've seen it happen.

Neither mate had it made up by a local company called Rainbow Paints they do all my paint for me i just supply the code its great to work with and for some reason dont get any brush marks to talk about either, though it does take at least 3 coats to cover red oxide primer, cost is just under 15 quid a litre

Can honestly say I've never seen one of these before, will make a very interesting exhibit. Might take up quite a bit of room, but you could put some sort of display in there.

Actually, looking again it's not that big. I like it, it's something different.
