Hi Novagsio Do tread carefully if you intend to use Westbourne as there has been posts on this and other sites regarding their poor service level and lack of advertised stock. Canabus has a build blog mdlbt.com/31424 Not sure exactly what fittings you require but Reade Models may be able to help as they supported fittings for many of the kits produced alongside the Precedent range. http://reademodels.com If you are looking for the window frames then you may need to fabricate from liteply, or if you have a 3D printer source have some fabricated.
Hey Garth. I feel the same as Doug. DO NOT ORDER OFF WESTBOURNE MODELS UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES. All the forms are strewn with people who have lost money to them and never got it back. Please heed these warnings. Kindest wishes, Dave W 😊
Hi Garth, If you mean Westbourne Models DON'T TOUCH 'EM WITH A 10FOOT BARGE POLE! Every model boat web site is full of long running threads about order taken, money paid and nothing delivered and no contact or just bullshit excuses! Also here - https://model-boats.com/forum/hobby-chit-chat/9463 better look somewhere else 🤔 Cheers Doug 😎
Yet they still show the shop frontage on their site and Magazine adverts. It was a sad day when my local model shop Ashton Models closed, know far and wide used it man and boy in that order, they were old school, seemed to know everything about any hobby you could think of, rarely where they stumped. If you needed a thingy bob for a whats it you call it, you left with the very thing you needed, it was a treasure trove. A sad day indeed when they closed.
hi this is the part of the miniutes from the club i belong to not looking good as i liked the old shop. 🤔Model shops - There are now no local model shops, Westbourne Model Shop are working out of a garage opposite their previous shop, not much stock is held and not easy to look at, some members have said its not worth going to😱😱
I ordered two props from Westbourne Did not receive them. When I emailed them NO reply.Had to go through PayPal to get my money back. After three emails with PayPal got my money Will never use them again.
Hi Robbob, We're slowly and steadily tagging keywords across the website. It's an experiment at the moment more than anything else. I do like how you can drill down into boat names and keywords though, which then brings up other posts from across the website containing those words. It could be used for all sorts of things mind. Recommending things you might be interested in, to show trending tags, similar to twitter! It also helps search engines. The website is still a little lost in Google. Stupidly Westbourne models ranks much higher than both this site and meyhem! Stephen
