The yellow roof was supposed to be a tan brown so after showing Crown the problem they apologised and gave me a free pot of paint, the reddish tan colour. Very pleased with Crown's customer service. I should add this was a paint that they mixed for me not ex stock.

The cell holders may interest some. The white one is Ceramic and was given to me by B. Mobus along with a good few others but as happens over time little things get lost so I am also using the top hats one of which shown still has an emerged cell from last season. I thought to include the tape to give an idea of dimensions.

Lots of painting to do, but well on with the frame building and the foundation order arrived today.

This years investment circa £1k.
