    Ah, but there are yachts and there are yachts. While these brash modern things are unattractive, something like an older Marblehead, 6 Metre or a scale model of a J class, or Victorian gaff cutter are a quite different matter.
    But of course a sailing fisherman of some sort is a wonderful thing. How about a Morecombe Bay Prawner, a Northumberland Coble or a Leigh Peter Boat? Beautiful, functional and a modelmaking challenge, all in one.

    Nice ideas Martin, I did the VOR as a challenge from my company (Musto / Helly Hansen). it was in one of my stores looking sorry for itself! I am more into a working trawler or Gill netter... been working on Cygnus style boats recently (see blogs Emily PII and Emily PIII) but am thinking my next one could be a steel boat as I do like a bit of rust!!!

    So I have taken all the parts that need remaking off and have sprayed the hull. She will be named β€˜The Inside Edge’.

    I have been lucky enough to acquire a replica VOR model from one of my stores.

    I intend to restore the damaged parts, add some additional detail and give it a paint job in 'Musto' livery..

    How lucky are you. are these available as a kit or a set of plans as opposed to a fully built model.
