Hello Brian

It has the look of a Wilson 36, see below, but its possible the the model is a generic of the period

Hello Paul,

Yes it looks very similar. It has also been suggested that it may be an old kit from DMI called 'Admiral'. They were later bought out by Billings.

Thanks for your input, I will be doing more research into it.

This old Bassett Lowke advert looks like a contender?

Could be a collectors item?

Hi Bob

That's an interesting thought ! I'm still looking into this, but I'm beginning to think that it is the old DMI model.

Thanks for your input, I will follow it up anyway.

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.
