I am adding "Bluebell" to my harbour as, in keeping with many, she represents our awakening to the model boating world! The classic Revell Platinum kit was a wonderful introduction to our hobby (although as some of use realise, she tends to be subject to numerous "breakages" as time wears on as the plastic bits get bumped or snagged at the pond - or even when being loaded in the car!).

Successor to Flower Class Corvettes. This Castle Class built from scratch. As my first scratch built boat I decided to build with "surf board" keel that carries all the ballast. Model handles perfectly with no "Nodding" and rolling like a toy in rough water. Keel acts as display stand when ashore. Took 2 years to build. Pic's taken at various stages of construction on and off the water.
