    This club is one of the friendliest model boating clubs I have had the chance to be a member. It is unfortunate that my health has not been great for the last couple of years , plus that this year my beloved wife has passed on. I am hoping to get back to see all the wonderful members who became good friends.
    oIf you are in the vicinity especially on a weekend try to pop in I am sure you will be made welcome.๐Ÿ˜Š

    I am having trouble with the superstructure in that I cannot decide how the front is meant to be made. I am hoping that one of you guys can point me in the right direction. I canโ€™t believe that after 60 years of building model boats I am so confused. The boat has a fibreglass hull, I am making the superstructure of ply and any other relevant material.
    Any advice shall be welcome.๐Ÿคž

    Thatโ€™s funny, I have had the same problem. At the moment I have been viewing the site through Safari itโ€™s a pity but I love the site

    Perhaps you have answered the question your self, wet and dry and after a couple of coats you should find it smooth and without blemish. This is the time to ensure there is no dust around.
    A good idea is to try and make a shelter around the boat and wet it before giving it the final cost of a good quality gloss paint.
    It really is just a matter of perseverance and you should have a great finish.
    Good luck!

    Can anyone help with any information about the liner France. I am interested in starting a long term project and have had an interest in this ship. I have searched for A plan and description of this ship without success.
    Any information would be greatly appreciated

    Many thanks
