Thanks  :)

Well, usually both the British and Portuguese used that kind of semaphore. :)

I’m assuming the client is using it as a generic one  ???

Yup. Probably. And the french would have some kind of signals too. :)

It is loosely based on a French Revolutionary War era signal station.
I gave Oshiro some pictures from the web and there is also a rarherhelpful video on the BBC website of a restored French station of the period that still operates. This will make a useful objective for some coastal games.

And i´m looking forward to see it finished. :)
I´m sure James will do a great job on this signal station.

All done  :)

I fancy making one for myself now as I'd like to do a little 'Hornblower' project based on the episode 'The Frogs and the Lobsters'  :)

Lovely piece! Is there some sort of trapdoor next to the semaphore?

I like a lot the kind of fractured rock you put on the semaphore's base!
Dare I ask you to provide some "how to" info? Thanks in advance!
