    Brought this scratch built ship unfinished and sadly no plans etc, it does look like a ferry type of ship so I am planning to modify her to be like Brittany Ferrys NORMANDIE, if I do it will be quite some size I think!!!

    That looks as if it could be some restoration, but, doubtless, would be well worth doing. I see from your other post that she is six foot long, that's quite a size and should be very impressive when finished. If there is any chance of a blog on the work you do on her, I'm sure a lot of people will be interested. Good luck.

    Cheers, Nerys

    Hi yes I can update you all on this build at moment I'm trying to get pictures of NORMANDIE at various angles then I have to try and scale the pictures to the scale of the hull sadly due to lockdown Brittany is still opening up or some are still closed, I live only two miles away from the main office so that Is handy.

    Hello my next plan is to get some pictures of NORMANDIE and then adjust pictures or draw to scale I will then make paper templates to see if the scale and size is OK on the hull I might even ask Brittany Ferrys for some basic plans and pictures of her to help me out.

    Wow, that looks like a big boat. What do you think it will weigh completed?

    Hi that is what is worrying me the weight I might have to consider constructing the top half from balsa wood, I'm currently writing a letter to Brittany to see if I can get some better pictures etc from them.

    Shame you flogged the 7 foot HMS Hood☹️
    I was really really looking forward to seeing her majestically plough up your boating lake.
    Are you going to be any better off with a 6 foot ferry?
    Plenty of scope for some RC cars and trucks thoughπŸ˜‰
    Good luck anyway🀞
    Cheers, Doug 😎
