    "you must a'v been nowt but a lad."
    Correct Pete,
    I started the project when I was 13/14. Hotspur's Maiden Voyage took place on my 15th birthday August 1966 in the boating pool in Radnor Park Folkestone. We went to stay with Granny & Grandad in Folkestone (where I was born๐Ÿ˜‰) every summer.
    I'll put the rest of her history in a Blog or Harbour entry some time!
    Cheers, Doug ๐Ÿ˜Ž

    I've just posted a few bits of her over the last 2 or 3 years, when they were relevant to someone's query. She was built from plans I drew up by measuring the Airfix 600 kit parts with a micrometer! Was doing Tech Drawing at school ๐Ÿ˜‰ Had to multiply everything by

    Some very tasty looking warships in the Fleetscale catalogue Doug, could one of these be that extra to the bakers dozen!๐Ÿ˜Š
    The only problem is that they are all a bit modern for me, apart from HMS Cavalier which can be made as an earlier version than the 1960 plan that comes with it.

    Cheers, Pete
