    Aero Naut Jenny
    1930 style American speed boat
    Dragon force 65
    My newest addition to the fleet
    (Yacht) International One Metre
    The I.O.M. is a great boat to sail and mine is getting on a bit and not very competative these days. Cost of new boats has become a very expensive so I am happy with mine. (5/10)
    (Working Vessel) Swedish Potato Boat
    I bought this boat 2nd hand a few years ago and I think its a Swedish Potato Boat. its good fun fun to sail in a light breeze and sails well. (8/10)
    (Yacht) Mirror Dinghy
    Built this from a kit. Sails ok but little wind required as it has a open cockpit and takes water on. (5/10)
    (Pleasure Craft) Sea Queen
    This kit was from westbourne models and they supplied all other bits as well. Build was quite good but some of the fittings a bit naff. Looking now to finish cockpit now I have tried it. (Motor: Standard 800) (ESC: Himark Marine ESC) (9/10)

    New build to keep me sane during lockdown. Quality kit and a few testing moments. Sea trials this morning and performed perfectly. Next time I am at the pond I will get some pics

    I have recently finished a sea queen and I took out the pins and filled the holes. in the past I once left a couple of pins in and I could always see the mark as it appeared raised. 😊
    Good luck with the hll skins as I found it the most testing part of the build

    HI Dave I am not sure if the sea queen was supposed to be a sea going motor boat or a norfolk broads type cruiser. if it is a cruiser then the detail will be far less.

    HI dave I am currently looking to finish the cockpit but the bits that came with the kit were a bit naff. I have put a shelf in and created a door frame to the cabin. I am looking to put steering wheel , morse control and instruments ,maybe a seat. I will post some more pics when complete.
