I would greatly appreciate any help in obtaining scale drawings of the Trinity House Light vessel No. 78 "CALSHOT SPIT" I've scoured the net but with no success. She was built by J.I. Thorneycroft Ltd at Woolston, Southampton.
 I remember as a kid drawing my bedroom curtains to see the light from this ship every morning and thought it would make a great project.

Hi there.

I thought I had posted this before but it probably got lost in cyber space.

The actual Calshot Spit lightvessel is now on land and an attraction at the Ocean Village Marina in Southampton.

If you go here

You can see a picture of it and other links to get more information about it. 

All the best.

John

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
