hi,

yes i will be putting on as per order by NPH651 lol! some build logs of them soon, they have been built over the past 11 years, i hope to try to get some younger veiwers to keep the model boat building going. if i can show one person to try then i will be happy. all my materials are obtained from of cuts what i find then cut into planks..i bye 1/16 ply , but very little else if i can as like most money is an issue, as i have proved you dont need to break the bank to build a boat. if you bye the free plans in magazines, then start by building a simple chine then work up to planks my first was the pilot boat in marine modelling i will post a pic of it. this was built from 1/16 birch ply sheet with fire hydrent pumping water out with car washer pump





this one was built totaly from scrap ply from a plan in model boats again nice starter boat.

thats it for now few more to come so come on get building

hi,
 this boat started of as thomas kirk wright of the plan , but found that makeing the hotchkiss cone was going to take a lot of thought and testing. so i changed it to be another watson, only called PRINCE DAVID the (clue is in the name why.) based in barry docks, not haveing a lot to go on i used the drawings from the book LET NO THE DEEP by A D Farr excelent book and a couple pics from a book i bought Lifeboat in Dangers hour by Patrick howarth. and now ahead of plan it is finished bar the sails deciding weather our not to bother.

Hi David
What a great collection. 2thumbsup 2thumbsup 2thumbsup

Your Waverley in the 1st pic, background looks like the pavilion Weymouth.
The Model Boats pusher, same here, I built one scaled up slightly for my wife to use in tug towing comps.
All excellent models, some I have seen in the flesh as it were.

But I like the unusual so your dumb barge gets my vote. Thumbup

PS I will have to go through MMI to see if I can find that plan.

hi, thanks for comments.
the picture of waverley was taken at the model boat convention when it was at birchwood  now at haydock race course. not been to Weymouth. always wanted to go to there show now defunct I believe. I will see when the plan was printed for dumb barge not sure, it could be motorised I have done that with the crane with speed controller but tends to go a bit fast. you are the first person to ever comment on the dumb barge  Surprised

My mistake it was the stepped ceiling and the large windows down the left side.
We used to exhibited at many different shows, now age, vision and memory now taking its toll.
Weymouth SWAMBC International Maritime Modelling Festival, we had our models there and only missed 1 out of the 17years it took place.
It was disappointing when things wound down, but understandable, with the loss of the venue in 2012 for the Olympics.
I did agree with the decision, that it was an appropriate time to end.

If you can let me know when the dumb barge was published, not very organised with magazine storage (I blame a house move for that). if not I will have a word with Barrie S.

Edit:- just noticed, you have added the information I need. (Should have gone to specsavers) affraid

hi barrie,
they are scratch built from a plan in radio controlled model boats nov-dec 1985 . I hope to put the build log on here very soon, just sorting out photos of the fourth one I am building now.  I have now sorted out how to post photos again, (I seem to have had a mental block being unable to post photos on my new laptop Laughing Laughing ). the completed ones I built years ago but recent arrival of fourth grand daughter, I thought I had better do one for her, so watch out for my build. it is a perfect boat for the young ones as it is very well built sturdy and crash proof  Laughing Laughing  which you will see.
