    Am I missing something here, what's with all the silly titles. Admirals, Captains and three band stokers etc.You are all boat modellers. I also build model aircraft does that make an Air-Vice marshal or a Wing Commander if I own more than one model. As for getting up-tight if your title has been changed, then I think you need to get a life.Having got that off my chest I would like to say there are some magnificent models displayed on this site.

    HMS Devastation
    She was launched in 1872, and was effectively the first RN modern era battleship. I am thinking of modeling her. Does anyone have any good info, drawings, photos etc?

    Royal Daffodil ex OVERCHURCH
    Sorry guys I posted two photos here but only shows my avatar, glitches on the system Im afraid😭 After a complete refurb the Overchurch was renamed the Royal Daffodil. My model depicted here is scratch built on fiberglass hull to 1/48 scale. She now rests in my workshop next to the original Daffodil circa 1918 after she gained the "Royal" status for her role in the raid on Zebruggee in WW1 1918 together with her sister ship the Iris. The current Royal Daffodil rests in Vittoria Dock Birkenhead laid up and will not again see any service again.

    Scratch build from photos and old Elco plans. working spot and port, starboard lights. everything made except from people which was a racing car pit crew team.
    HMS DAFFODIL 1918 later to become Royal Daffodil
    HMS Daffodil fitted with armour for WW1 raid on Zeebrugge in 1918. Scratch built on fiberglass hull. No plans, just from old photos. The Mersey Ferry requisitioned by Admiralty and later to become Royal Daffodil in recognition of her actions at the Zeebrugge raid.
