    I to use and think CMB is a very good hobby shop to deal with. Good looking job and enjoy the sun as it does help when you can sit outside .

    Beautiful day today and a having a rest from work on the garden so decided to fettle and drill where necessary all the white metal fitting for my Milford Star. I then set to work on building the Anchor Winch which was easy and very similar to others I have done, then I turned my hand to the Trawl winch. What a pain it was - I have read the instructions time and time again and tried to relate them to the small drawing they provide ( I enlarged this and printed it out). I assemble it loose and had so many goes at it but finally ignored the instructions and worked it out for myself.
    Lovely warm day sitting on the patio doing a little modelling - who says this lock-down is boring.

    Re Cornwall Model Boats.
    I can also from personal experience recommend CMB.
    They have always been very good to me for items I have bought,and on larger items in the past have price matched if I have been able to confirm a lower price.
    Would definitely recommend,and although they are mail order only (unless things have changed) they did let me go and collect my items and have a rummage around.
    Regards Bill๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ˜€

    I agree, Cornwall Model Boats are brilliant. I would also like to mention Model Boat Bits who I have always found diligent and helpful, SLEC who are great for timber and ply and Component Shop for all things electrical. I'd be lost without these companies.

    The few model shops left around here now specialise in ARTR/RTR aircraft and cars/trucks๐Ÿค”
    CMB and Deans are both good companies to deal with๐Ÿ‘

    Just a sing out for a small Cornish company, that I hasten to add I have absolutely NO connection to. I live just around the corner from Cornwall Model Boats and yet until I built a Flower Class, I'd never heard of them! They are so friendly, helpful and knowledgeable. I have a few disability issues and they not only supplied promptly and competitively, but when I got stuck with an RC issue, they even set it up for me for no charge. So if you have a great little model supply company near you then why not sing out about it so we can all support our hobby suppliers.

    Hi ads90,
    You are off to a great start.
    Well done.

    Maybe you should put this in the build log section.

    If it looks right it probably is.

    My wife has said that I have too many boats already (0nly 16) but during this Covoid 19 issue I was getting bored with working on the house and garden so after a chat she says "why not build another boat ?" Quick, she might change her mind so I didn't waste any time and ordered a Caldercraft Milford Star trawler at 1:48 scale from Cornwall Model Boats (delivered next morning).
    So made a start and here are a few photos of progress to date. Hull cut to shape, ballasted out (barring minor final adjustments when finished) and now planning where to install all the electrics. I only do a couple of hours working on her each day (no, not the wife !) and no need to rush. Will update on progress as and when.
