    Also I would like to thank all the members for the encouragement they have given me with building Katie, I probably will keep her and build her along side other builds I have in mind.

    Cheers Jon.

    Please Andy I hope you did not take my comments the wrong way, I really enjoyed your build of Katie it turned out to be a beautiful boat and looked great on the water. I think the main problem i have with the build is the finding of parts for it as I have never built anything like this before but I will probably end up keeping Her and building it along side the Tamar Lifeboat I am now building which came as a complete kit.

    Kindest Regards Jon.

    Hi

    Iโ€™d really encourage you to continue building your Katie, it does make a great model and youโ€™d made such a good start. Including an auxiliary motor which was looking good. Iโ€™m sorry that my posting has had a negative influence, as Iโ€™m far from an experienced model maker.

    My model is far from โ€œdisplayโ€ quality and is made to sail, which i feel is the important aspect to any model. The conditions at Fleetwood can get โ€œlumpyโ€.

    There is considerable pleasure is making and then actually sailing a boat. Please keep going, there is a need for more sailing boats being built. Itโ€™s an aspect that seems to be ignored by Model Boats magazine.

    Maybe like me you like starting new projects?

    Must admit a lot of the enjoyment for me is producing the drawings - I have another two Faireys on the drawing board (computer) which I have never seen built before and a non-Fairey project. Must resist starting another build though as I really want to see some of my current builds on the water in the near future!

    Some good points ChrisF. However how do you explain the 4 boats and one yacht I am working on?

    Hi Muskrat

    I agree with the comments made.

    Another idea is to start building something else to renew your enthusiasm that is within your comfort zone and to hone your skills and then do a bit on the pilot cutter now and then.

    I started building my first Fairey about 4 years ago when I got into the hobby (yet to finish one!) and started building another one when I reached the point where I didn't really fancy doing something or wanted to just start building something else. One example was planking the deck. In the end I did it and did a reasonable job so did another two! My next delayed challenge was painting and I've got five to do now! Just about to start.

    Even at shows you see differences in standards. Go for it!

    Chris
