Hi all I have been asked to renovate a Thames sailing barge, after some research I have discovered that it is this one
https://www.modeljetdrives.com/thames-barge.html
Does anyone know where or have the build manual/ instructions that they could copy and email for me
Thanks
Ron

Ron, could you more easily get the original HFM kit instructions? I doubt if the mods done by modeljetdrives (??) were so substantial that you couldn't get by with the HFM stuff.

Cheers,
Martin

Does it need so much that we couldn't talk our way through it for you?
I don't know a huge amount about sailing barges, but I know the basics and I have books about them as I am supposed to be making a 1/43rd scale model as a pattern for a kit for a model railway company's scenic accessories line.

It needs a complete refit Martin , fittings are missing the rigging is in a right mess with broken mast ect.
I'm not a big fan of these boats but doing it as a favour for a club member.
I have found plans online for a Thames barge which at a push I could possibly use.

Ah, OK, Ron. In that case I'm afraid I can't help you, but I wish you luck. The rigging should be fairly standard. I have Ewart Freeston's book on making static models of them I could check things in that if you need.

Cheers,
Martin

Ron, you can get all thevents information you'll need from the Association of Model Barge Owners website. Incidentally, for a sailing model, the best scale is 1/24th i.e. 1/2 Inch to one foot which gives a hull length of about 42 inches.
