    I am building an original kit and am struggling with a removable roof and lifting floor for access. I am not using the drop in mould for the kit as it is to many layers. Will make my own interior. I may close the cabin in as well with sliding doors. Love your build and would like to see that back seat in the rear. Hopefully a full width bench. That is what I like to do.

    Sounds better Dave M But would prefer if one could just stay where they are when they like a post. I think the members would get more exposure if we could do that. I often just don't go back because it is like I have been interrupted...lol

    I was wondering if there was a way that we would not get sent to the start of the first page of the posts when we like a post. I saw the Tsekoa which was about five pages along and like the photos that were posted. As usual the site reset to the first page again, You have to go back through next post page over and over to h
    get back to the post. I know a bit wordy...lol, but hope it helps.

    These are built for the owners and are the only ones in existence. My friend Bob in California built them and many others. Just a sample of his work.

    I really love this site. I have been to many model boat sites, but this is the best I have found. The layout and ease of use is great. I thoroughly enjoy looking at the other modeller's harbours and builds. if you are boat blind like I am, this is model boat porn to me.
