Thread: sails for 1/24 Veronica
14/05/2020 09:55:45

Hi Eddie and Ray,

Many thanks to you both for helpful replies. Your pictures are great. I find I have already downloaded and printed two or three of Ray's photos from your album and then forgot where I had found them, so a useful reminder. And it would be great to see as many more nice detailed close-up photos that you are both able to take, but the landing boat obviously easier than Eddy's just now. I do find these photos are helpful as this is my first TSB build (well almost, apart from a rather nice little toy stumpy from a plan I found in a Readers Digest DIY book years ago).

I am still finishing off the deck fittings at present, just looking ahead to the next stage.

I would have made an effort to get to a racing venue to have a look at peoples' models (Maldon is just 4 miles from us so the real barges are easily accessible). But hopefully later in the year now.

Looking forward to more photos please.

May I jump in, hoping this is not too far off topic, Veronica rigging. I am having trouble deciding how many and what size sheave blocks etc,

I’m finding the plan vague on this matter. I think someone asked a similar question last year but did not get a real answer. There is no “parts list” that I know of, perhaps someone who has already built the barge could give us some idea. Otherwise I’ll be ordering the things one at a time ad paying postage every time!

Make your own contribution to the Website

We welcome well written contributions from Website members on almost any aspect of Model Boating with a particular emphasis on practical hints, tips, experience and builds.

In order to maintain a consistent standard and format, all suggestions should first be sent to me by Personal Message for approval in principle. Only a very limited amount of time is available for editing contributions into a suitable format for placing on the website so it is important that the material is well presented, lucid and free from obvious spelling errors. I think it goes without saying that contributions should be illustrated by appropriate photos. I shall be happy to give advice on this.

The Member Contribution area offers space for short informative mini articles which would not normally find a place in Model Boats magazine. It is an opportunity for Website Members to freely share their  expertise and experience but I am afraid that virtue is its own reward as there is no budget to offer more material recompense!

I look forward to receiving your suggestions.

Colin Bishop - Website Editor
