    Hi Martin, probably a better way to do it, (probably the way my brain works, - seem to want to do blurb first then pics,-like flying, I prefer to do left hand turns rather than right) I'll try and re-train myself although probably ingrained (done the same with emails forever)๐Ÿ˜€

    Hi Doug, I've had the same problem on numerous occasions previously and have now resorted to copying the text before I start posting pics. It's odd, sometimes the text will disappear other times not, (sometimes the subject heading as well) but you just paste it in if it goes AWOL, (I do the same if I have to edit the post as well). Sometimes if you edit something it will stay the same, but I found if you refresh the page it sorts it.
    Re Colins' ship,- all that string!! (visions of large magnifying glasses and lots of tweezer work) you'd need a lot of patience or you might end up being one of the patients at the happy farm!

    Grrrrr๐Ÿ˜ 
    Just wrote some text, selected the associated photos and ...
    ALL TEXT VANISHED GRRRRR!
    So here we go again!๐Ÿค”

    Just downloaded the Billing Instruction Book.
    Basic construction is basically the same as the Billing fish cutter I am currently restoring and converting from static to RC. So have already learned a few tricks in that respect.
    Booklet includes all dimensions and details of the mast parts and spars so no problem there either. Masts and spars can be easily tapered from dowels on the mini lathe, or even at a pinch a mini drill clamped in a bench vice. So no insurmountable problems there, I hope๐Ÿ˜‰

    All the decoration and twiddly bits is another kettle of steamed fish though ๐Ÿ˜ฎ
    Are the fittings still there? See 3rd pic.
    We'll see. maybe Colin finds a local taker!?
    Kit seems to date from the early 80's. Just like my ancient fish cutter Gina 2.
    Blog of my hull restoration for that is on this site๐Ÿ˜Š
    Cheers, Doug ๐Ÿ˜Ž

    Hi Colin - yes please don't bin it - its a rare old piece - as a last resort you could email Billings and ask if they don't want it for their collection - were very grateful for a plan from me.

    Hi Colin,
    Don't bin it!๐Ÿ˜ฎ
    If nothing / no one else turns up, and all the plans are still there, post it to me.
    Can't be too expensive. It's a long discontinued model and the wood must be tinder dry and light as a feather by now๐Ÿ˜‰
    Will PM you!
    Cheers, Doug ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Well Red,
    If no offers of a new home I'm afraid I will have to bin it.
    I have tried giving it to the local charity shops but they don't want it.
    I have just run out of room for a project of this size and beyond my skill set.
    Shame but that's how life is in my area.
    Cheers Colin.
    Fair winds and calm waters, COLIN.

    Hi Colin - would love to take it on but would have to be in the next lifetime, collection could well be problem from here too....
    Looks like what there is was fairly well made - be a shame to bin it - bung it on eBay if there's no takers - bound to be some interest .
