SCRATCH FISHING BOAT by basilsdad Sub-Lieutenant   Posted: 2 months ago
Thanks for the compliment, never put your model making down, we all get better with practice, had lots of advice from my fellow modellers and many learn from the many mistakes along the way

SCRATCH FISHING BOAT by basilsdad Sub-Lieutenant   Posted: 2 months ago
thanks for that it is a wrench to let it go but need the space regards

SCRATCH FISHING BOAT by basilsdad Sub-Lieutenant   Posted: 2 months ago
I have for sale my model fishing boat which was scratch built from a model boat magazine plan, forgot who designed it though. it is built from balsa for the hull sides covered in a pair of the bosses tights before sealing and painting.The stern and deck are ply then painted to seal. all the deck and cabin fittings are scratch built from photos found on line. it is quite heavy about 10Lb of lead if I remember correctly, the length is 30" by 16" to keel bottom and beam 9", fitted with a 12v to 14V motor, 70 mm prop. Batteries and 320 amp fan cooled speed controller included, currently running off 12v 6 amp batteries. space needed for new project £150 or reasonable offers collection from Lincoln would be advisable due to size and weight. But could arrange delivery if required.

mystery yacht by basilsdad Sub-Lieutenant   Posted: 2 months ago
hi all. I have purchased a yacht hull and deck as my next project from that well known auction site, but am struggling to find the maker or the name of the yacht?. it came complete with a fibreglass deck, measures 48" long 10" beam and 11" to keel bottom, I am sure some one out there knows what it is based on or who manufactured it. I have started the build and am going to loosely base it on the 1930 yacht enterprise, mainly the sail plan. have added a few photos if it helps thanks for any help. basilsdad
