I served as a steward on this ship in 1963, and found the A4 plans in 1966. It wasn't until 2005 that I started building her. It was my first scratch build. I used different wood and fibreglass, hence when I tried to sail her I needed to include stabilisers to keep her upright.

Hello PJG1412.
A fantastic model you have there.

It must be satisfying to create a model of a boat you've been on.
And especially after so many years.
Regards Ole Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy
