Now that I have finally removed all the sticky scenic water from my fingers and scrubbed most of the dye off I can list a photo of what I have been upto for the last couple of days. Oh yes at this point I will mention that I have had a red finger for two days. Thankfully no-one commented. I am not sure whether pickling 12th scale or for real is any less messy.
