Good evening to one and all, thank you for your welcome. I have been boat modelling for 60+ years. I prefer wood to work with, but have a variety of models built between 1914 and now, a variety of paper mache, tin, plastic, fibreglass and wooden. At present I have approximately 50 models, of which about twenty are ready to use, the rest either need repairing or restoration, plus a few that have yet to be built. Restoration of vintage boats is my passion then sailing and displaying at vintage shows. I'm fortunate to have a wife who is also a boat modeller. She often helps with the fidddley bits as I suffer with severe arthritis and a prolapsed vertebrae which limits my hands. That's me in a nutshell, cheers Colin.
