    Welcome John, I envy you youngsters, a scratch built boat to any standard is always the best way to get what you want, and this site is full of members with the knowledge and skills to help, sadly I have never been able to build from scratch, but I make lots of parts to repair or replace damaged or missing parts from the vintage models I have restored. Best advice is to ask specific questions to get the best help in the world at your fingertips.
    Happy modelling and cheers from me Colin.

    Hi John welcome to the forum.
    Am I right in thinking the model you want to build is the boat you served on?
    If so then start by giving us her name and perhaps her port and then any photos you have. Even if you don't have pictures yourself a google of her name may find some.
    With that someone on here (not me) may say that she looks very similar to XXX and there are kits or plans available.
