    Ron, you can get all thevents information you'll need from the Association of Model Barge Owners website. incidentally, for a sailing model, the best scale is 1/24th i.e. 1/2 inch to one foot which gives a hull length of about 42 inches.

    Ah, OK, Ron. in that case I'm afraid I can't help you, but I wish you luck. The rigging should be fairly standard. I have Ewart Freeston's book on making static models of them I could check things in that if you need.

    Cheers,
    Martin

    It needs a complete refit Martin , fittings are missing the rigging is in a right mess with broken mast ect.
    I'm not a big fan of these boats but doing it as a favour for a club member.
    I have found plans online for a Thames barge which at a push I could possibly use.

    Does it need so much that we couldn't talk our way through it for you?
    I don't know a huge amount about sailing barges, but I know the basics and I have books about them as I am supposed to be making a 1/43rd scale model as a pattern for a kit for a model railway company's scenic accessories line.

    Ron, could you more easily get the original HFM kit instructions? I doubt if the mods done by modeljetdrives (??) were so substantial that you couldn't get by with the HFM stuff.

    Cheers,
    Martin
