    Most excellent job I couldn't decide if it was the real thing at first glance.

    Would like to be able to get pictures as good for my two I have one the first rc boat I built the 2 second the raf fire tender courtesy of Marky I have a 1/16 scale sailboat Bristol channel pilot cutter needs finishing but it the setting up of the sail workins that's holding things up and no one for advice.

    all these boats are scratch built only thing purchased was brass tube for mounting on a base, all these would have made up workboats on board Nelsons ship HMS Victory.
    from left to right yawl, cutter, longboat, pinnace, admiral barge

    Hi! Marky, I have just recovering from a stroke Andi have a gaff rigged cutter half done but as it was my first time building a sail boat I was stuck when it came to the sail set up then the stroke I can't get back to it so I would wonder if you could possibly negotiate another set for the eezebilt RAF tender cut in plywood.
    I would be most willingly pay for it no problem,
    Please don't fret if its not possible I will understand
    Laters then Mick
