I am considering building a model of KDB Waspada .

I have been doing the usual Google searchs , however I am not finding out any real info in terms of plans,drawings and images to help with the project.

Can any of you point me in the direction of some sources of information please.

Thanks and stay safe

Clive, I found this in google images, it looks as if the guy is in Maidstone, might be worth trying to get in contact by leaving a comment or 'following', (not sure how that may work though).

Hi Ray

Its a fast patrol boat , formerly of the Brunei navy ,that I worked on in the eighties, I think it has now been passed on to the Indonesion navy as a training vessel, mountfleet models produce a hull for it , what I am looking for is photos of the details etc .

Regards Clive

Hi Clive

I think the late John Pritchard was a specialist in this type of craft (especially the RAF one's)...

Might be worth a Google search in and around his name to pick up some supplementary links etc.

Good hunting,

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.
