Hi Jugge, all you need to do is fit a 'lighting board' like these-

to block the light going aft 👍
All the best, Doug 😎
Response by jugge on the 13th Mar 2018
Hi Doug
I have look at those light but its only 3 v and i need 6v
thanks anyway

Response by RNinMunich on the 13th Mar 2018
Hi Jugge, I didn't mean you should buy these lamps, just make some Light-boards, like in the pics, to add to your own lamps! 😉
Thin brass strip does the job and is dead easy to solder. 👍

OR; buy those complete lamps and simply wire them in series across your 6V supply: 3V + 3V = 6V 😊
Whatever; have fun doing it, cheers Doug 😎

Speed line kit completed a year ago. Sails well and is fun to handle. Has done many hours on the water and is still in good shape considering the conditions I have subjected it to.😎

How long did it take for Speedline to post this kit to you? have waited nearly four weeks for mine and still no sign!!!!!
Response by alan20 on the 23rd Jan 2018
I don't recall exact time. It was over two years ago that I got the kit but I do recollect having to wait a little.
Response by Baggie on the 27th Jan 2018
Great looking vessel pictured on a lovely day too - great combination!

I was going to do a day sail on her in Weymouth Bay but came down with a bug before I could. Quite reasonable terms too. Crew were very friendly. Not sure if they were in Weymouth for part of the Dunkirk film filmed in Weymouth Harbour, we had three such old trawlers and drifters anchored in the centre of the harbour. Great sight.
Response by RNinMunich on the 20th Jan 2018
Hi Selwyn, I just bought the BluRay of 'Dunkirk', I'll keep an eye out for her!🤓
Response by SelwynWilliams on the 20th Jan 2018
I was given a copy of Dunkirk for Christmas but not got around to viewing it. You might spot some modern buildings and modern boats in the background at Weymouth.

Excelsior - Posted: 3 months ago by Gascoigne
Here is the last of the Lowestoft sailing trawlers. Model built using working drawings kindly supplied by the Sailing Trust. Model about 12 years old. I got a little carried away on detail! As expected she sails and handles well as all the old work sailors do.
Drop keel and rudder extension added when sailing. I was intrigued to discover that the deck winch was steam powered,no doubt to help with taking in the trawl net.

Another fine example of your work.... all your boats look superb and I know from my own experience of them how well they sail and look on the water.
Response by Donnieboy on the 15th Mar 2018
I'm mostly into tugboats but this model you have is beautiful.
It's also great to be carried away on detail.Good job.
