Newest project, I must be loco, I've no Idea what It Is supposed to be but the hull shape reminds me of a steam assisted sailer like the great eastern. Only It was a loft find, (nobody had been up there since the 2nd ww) It appears to be made of news paper layared over a wooden frame. Length 37" Beam 6.75"
Keel to Deck 6.75"
Any sugestions about restoring a boat like tis would be most welcome.
Thanks Colin.

Hi Colin, This is what you might call a delayed response.....I always have been a little slow. About 3 years ago you posted your latest project which was to be something like the Great Eastern. While flipping through the Model Engineer Christmas Edition December 1958 I found this article. Probably too late but I thought you might like to see it. Did you ever finish the restoration?
