Hi Malcolm. I think you are right it’s far to light to sail, still because of you guys I have learnt so much and hope I wouldn’t make the same mistakes again it has also renewed my interest in boat model making and I am looking for my next project thank you. Ian

Hi Malcolm I thought it was to light to be a working model, it was fitted when I got it pop rivets and string as rails. I have no experience with sailing models and I don’t really want a shelf model so I think I will forget the project at least I has renewed my interest in model boats and have been looking through my fathers 1950s Model Maker l have 65 copy’s and have old plans so I think I will start a new project thank you so much for putting me straight Best Regards Ian

Hi everyone thank you for your reply’s I am in Spain Murcia, the beam is 27cm the draft is 16.5cm the weight is 2.147kgs as you can see from the photos I have started to strip it down as I need to veneer the deck whoever constructed the model used ply cross grain and scribed it to form planks the rail posts were made from pop rivets I have the mast but it was inserted in a small block of mahogany the mast is 147cm long. Thank you all again for your input great forum. Regards Ian ps I did reply yesterday it just disappeared I am a bit of a technophobe.

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
