    This is a my first scratch build and is based on a free plan issued with Model boats magazine.

    At the moment I am at the hull stage and am just about ready to fibre glass the interior before sorting out the motor mount, prop shaft and sail control items before installing the deck.

    When the fibre glassing is finished I reckon most of the rest will be a winter project.

    After a 12 month absence I can now submit a few pictures of my nearly completed Thames Barge 'Kitty'.

    All I now require is a false keel and set of sails, which a club member is making for me.

    It has been a long slog fitted in between my other interests etc. but I am quite pleased with the result so far.
    Thanks to our club members for their advice and help. As a rooky with regards to scratch building it has been a very worthwhile project.

    Attached are a few piccies of how it looks at the moment.
