That's one fine looking boat and very reasonably priced too. Good work John.

Outstanding card model - at a fraction of the cost of a styrene equivalent. Good move, John:thumbs

(Only one problem: Unlike my old Airfix and Revell kits I don't think this one would float in the bath...:roll::roll:)

Excellent news, Fair dues to John.
That other site also has some lovely models Ken.

Hi Tim! A coat of varnish and they can join your ducks in the bath! hehe.

Derek

I could never get mine to float Tim they would always capsize! So the air rifle torpedo always cosigned them to Davy Jones locker sooner rather than later.:mutley

We used to build them specially for target practice. :thumbs

We'd fill them with polystyrene glued into the hulls and float them on our pond whilst we fired away with the airgun.  Unless they were filled, the first shot sank them almost instantly.

Many thanks for the comments, I really enjoyed designing this one and am planning to add a few other ship kits to my range including a Clyde puffer (of course), a small feeder container ship and a passenger ferry.

I also found this site in the US that seems to have a good range of HO and N deck fittings that could be useful:

Happy modelling!
