Mahogany in Scale by Westquay Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 4 months ago
Hmmm, well a cursory look through over lunch shows me that the book is fine if you're a kit basher as it covers the Dumas kind of kit, but for the actual modelmaker it holds nothing but nice pics on indifferent paper. Some useful addresses in the back. That's about it. Nothing on deck fittings, etc. Martin

Inspiration for beautiful boat builders ;-) by Westquay Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 5 months ago
Not enough woodies in the model boat world. Just loads of kit built Dumas Chris Crafts and Amati Rivas with the Timossi Hydro (NOT Ferrari) thrown in. When you consider how many gorgeous woodies of every kind there are and have been that seems to say loud and clear that people won't/can't/don't make anything from scratch any more. Many woodies could be made by adapting the kits made by various companies or the plans sets sold by the Rowell family. Ditchburn, Minet-Shields, Peterborough, Hackercraft, Dodge, Chris Craft, Greavette, Gar Wood, Lyman, Century, Seabird, Richardson.....gentleman's racers, racers, runabouts, sedans, commuters, utilities. So many gorgeous chrome detailed varnished mahogany hot rods, yet so few are ever modelled. I have dozens of plans, so they are available. Very strange. Martin

This is a Dumas kit for a USCG Life boat 44' built in Curtis Bay Maryland Coast Guard yard. I've been working off and on this model for a couple of years.

Boat Plans by canabus Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 6 months ago
Hi CaptBlight Has a bit of an Aerokits fan, these are workable kit !! I have a started Dumas 1949 Runabout with all the paper work. It's poorly written and the writers never built the boat !!! Mistakes in numbering etc !!! I can see why you are a little gun shy, but, you have work through it and finish the boat. I have a number of the Aerokits plans, but, not the Waveney. So, if you get a PDF copy kept me in mind. I will ask a few of my contacts for the plans!!! Canabus

Bridge/Cockpit/Flight Deck construction by Skydive130 Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 9 months ago
so, having been at work all weekend, today saw a day off and a few hours to start building the foreward cockpit bridge thingy. There will be quite a bit of shape changing mods to this part as we build, simply because the Dumas kit is of the 44ft Coastguard cutter and the Waveney class Lifeboat has quite a few differences. Changes to make include the windows, the rear walls to be extended to take acount of extra windows at back of cab, forward sloping front piece, engine intakes on both sides, and changes to the roof. Still waiting on a reference book on "Waveneys" from ebay, should have been here by now! that will give me the change to start super detailing the exterior decs, cabins ect.
