    Thanks for all your encouragement folks, I would really like to try, I just cant see how I could put the hours into it that would mean it could be finished so that my dad could enjoy it.

    I was hoping that there may be hobbyists on here that may get enough satisfaction from the building part of the process that they would be happy to release the boat at the end, especially knowing it would mean so much to someone else.

    Where I offered to give a token amount, I intended this to be a three figure sum, obviously if you looked at an hourly rate it would not work, but as a sum take the wife away for a weekend to make up for all the hours infront of the bench it may be nice.

    I do appreciate i am asking a lot, and its a long shot, so you may well get me popping up on here yet asking for advice while I undergo my first build. ๐Ÿ˜Š

    thanks @Peter3l

    I would really like to give it a go, but, honestly I dont have enough time to keep on top of everything. I have my own business and two young children.

    Hello all.

    A couple of year ago I bought a kit form HMS Bronnington as I thought it would make a nice gift for my dad in his retirement. He served on the ship and he has always had very fond memories of it.

    Sadly, shortly after he suffered several strokes, and no is quite incapacitated.

    I would love to commission someone to build the ship for me. It would have to be a labour of love, as I know how many hours they can take, and I unfortunately dont have those sort of funds. But I would hope that I could give a generous 'token' amount.

    Here is a link to the kit
