Thread: Westbourne project
27/08/2021 14:47:16

Hi everyone,

10 years ago I bought a Caldercraft Westbourne tug in need of assistance from the local car boot for £25 but since then life has had other ideas. I'm a half competent modeller, and while I couldn't dedicate time to a larger project I worked on a short 'OO' railway. Now that's been finished for a while, I managed to get into the garage and make a decent workspace to begin working on this.





The plan is to strip it out and add a bit more detail, which may lead to a lot of improvisation as my source, apart from other models, looks like three photos from the internet. I'm a little further on than the above, which were taken when I originally intended to start, but not much. I've already got a bunch of questions but will save those for a build log and get that started in a few days.

Thanks for looking.

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
