    NORMANDIE
    Brought this scratch built ship unfinished and sadly no plans etc, it does look like a ferry type of ship so I am planning to modify her to be like Brittany Ferrys NORMANDIE, if I do it will be quite some size I think!!!
    American gunship?
    Hi all sold my HMS Hood as it was really too big to use due to my condition and brought a gunship think it is American let me know many thanks
    HMS Hood
    Recently purchased from Northampton she is seven feet and two inches long currently has no radio installed at moment planning to use maybe end of month depending on the cost of radio gear or type.

    Hi that is what is worrying me the weight I might have to consider constructing the top half from balsa wood, I'm currently writing a letter to Brittany to see if I can get some better pictures etc from them.

    Hello my next plan is to get some pictures of NORMANDIE and then adjust pictures or draw to scale I will then make paper templates to see if the scale and size is OK on the hull I might even ask Brittany Ferrys for some basic plans and pictures of her to help me out.

    Hi yes I can update you all on this build at moment I'm trying to get pictures of NORMANDIE at various angles then I have to try and scale the pictures to the scale of the hull sadly due to lockdown Brittany is still opening up or some are still closed, I live only two miles away from the main office so that Is handy.

    Brought another model a HMS Victory this is for display only on a shelf above my television, She was built by a good friend of mine who told me it took him quite a long time to build it, I can believe him as it is a beautiful model.
