    A very frustrating boat to build. Had to reinforce the keel with a sandwitch of fiberglass, the materials do not look sturdy enough but looks good once finished. (8/10)

    Thats right Rob. I wish that I had tried to steam the skins on my boat before trying to fit them but due to the tight curve I ended up cutting the skins on the bow sections into three parts and reinforcing both inside and out of the hull with fibreglass. My wife is already asking what I want for Christmas, I quite fancy the Aerokits Sea Commander. Guess I`m hooked now.

    I am enjoying your build and I am especially looking forward to seeing how you will fit the bow sections. I am in the process of painting my 34 inch fireboat. She is the first wooden model that I have built and I have thoroughly enjoyed the process.

    Westbourne Models are useless, hopefuly you paid by credit card which means that you can reclaim your money through your bank. Personally I can highly reccomend Cornwall Model Boats.

    Maybe it is time for all model boat clubs to join together to warn their members about this company. The magazines that accept their adverts should be involved as well. I know how infuriating it is to try to deal with these people. They took my money quickly enough but ignored several emails and telephone messages when I tried to get them to resolve my problem. if anyone still has problems post it on their facebook page.

    After several emails and telephone messages the only way that I managed to get a response from them was by posting my problems on their facebook page, otherwise, hopefully, you paid with your credit card and if so you are covered by section 75 of the consumer credit act, contact your bank. How those clowns are still in business beats me ?
