    I donโ€™t know where you live but if you are ever near Lowestoft I believe there is a model of LT 100 in the Maritime Museum along with lots of other very similar steam trawlers. Hereโ€™s a picture that just catches the funnel.

    Hi Mike,

    Plans are available from Model Boats Plans Service or whatever they are called now. The plans I have were drawn by John Pottinger.

    There is also a book From Tree to Sea, written by Ted Frost which I have found invaluable.

    If you have old Model Boats Magazines in the April and May 1993 editions there is the original article written by John Pottinger.

    I hope this helps.

    Cheers,
    Stephen.
