Ben, meet 'Our Ben'! - Posted: 12th Nov 2018
Ben came round yesterday and I showed him the new model! To say he was excited is an understatement! Uncle Graham will have to get a wriggle on! A little bit of time spent lat night planning out the boards for the deck.

Our Ben Fishing Boat - Posted: 8th Nov 2018
I have purchased a fishing boat as part of a boat bundle on ebay, It looks like a Cygnus DS25 hull.

I intend to remove the deck that has been fitted very high, change the wheelhouse and make it into a small netting boat on a 16th scale.

The name is for my Nephew who has enjoyed watching me make my other models and loves coming to the lake with me. This way he can have a boat of his own!
