Scallywag is my second model, I came across an old Model boats magazine from 1988 that had a copy of the original plan designed by David Metcalfe and surprisingly managed to get and ABS hull. Very pleased with the results. The wheelhouse has a hinged door and seat locker and even a working compass! In addition I have fitted a sounder unit (can't remember the manufacturer)

My first attempt in twenty years so thought i'd start with something simple. I used lime strip to naturally lift the colour and spent an evening decking the cockpit for a bit of added detail. Nice model with a good turn of speed.

This model is 1/25 scale scratch built from a James A. Pottinger drawing of the only Scottish Herring drifter (Fyffie) left. Now a museum piece and moored in Anstruther harbour she is often sailed to various boat festivals and regatta's, as a prime example of our fishing industry history. I still have to master the sail set up .

I was embarrassed by how much there was she was giving away so I offered her all I had with me . she refused that £ 10 too until I said would she accept it as a donation. I assume her husband had an illness being researched .Lovely lady and daughter . I have another which I will write up/

Built from a kit by Colombini, this is based on a 54ft yawl, Stormy Weather, which was launched from the Henry Nevins yard in New York in 1934. I bought the kit from the bargain basement in my local model shop and with only one sheet of instructions in English and five diagrams with notes in Italian, I am pleased with the result.

Acquired for the cost of a cup of coffee from an auto jumble I cannot identify exactly what it is but is very close in design to a US Packard off shore patrol boat. New cabin constructed using some bits salvaged from the original as most of the plywood on the superstructure had delaminated.

Christmas present in 2009 taken a long time to put together.Good fibreglass moulding but poor quality light ok plywood. Have upgraded final look using photos from net based on actual boat 100% Proof. Should launch this summer 2016. Well launch date came and went no I finally got around to joining the Stevenage Model Boat Club in May 2017 before the boat finally got wet. With the power train setup listed above the huntsman perfoms remarkably well. Having done much internet research and downloaded many photographs I concluded that the superstructure on the kit was set too far back and it was duly moved forward to create a more balanced look. I had great difficulty finding suitable fenders so whilst on a family trip to Wales I coerced my nephew at Swallow Boats to design and 3D print some for me these are now installed pictures to follow
