My current model is a resurrected model part built [ poorly] ten years ago and then left in a box .
I was told about it and collected it for a fee and then set about trying to build a boat with most of the kit missing , a set of plans [ inFrench] and a picture of what she should look like ....so a challenge! 

Made the missing bits detailed on the plans and after 8 months very hard work finished a half decent sailing model which is teaching me the art of sailing .

A member [well known to you all] took a picture of  her  for which I am grateful but it appears to be to large to display , but there you go I will try again later and post it [hopefully] Twisted Evil

This is the same model as mine but this is NOT the one I completed  , sadly I still cant get a picture small enough to upload Rolling Eyes

I will have to speak nicely to our Moderator who may have a photo of her from a recent visit to our club site Twisted Evil

Thank you Barrie , have tried this format with varying degrees of success , so it may still be pilot error ,

None of  the less thanks again for taking the time to illustrate the system , could it be a case of    "OLD DOGS"   and  " NEW TRICKS "  Embarassed

Ivor

I can't do anymore without one of the files that failed to load. Were you trying to upload more than one photo at a time.

If the weather allows I will be at Cawcutts on Sunday an we can talk then.

New Sails ........made some new sails over the weekend [ forgive the background ] but not sure if the spacing between the fore sail and the bowsprit is right , so will have to try them out and see  Wink

The new sails worked well but I had to alter the rigging a tad so that the bowsprit sail filled easier and what a difference in performance it made , so the change was worth the effort and the new sails stand out well and it is easier to see her direction of travel  at distance Thumbup

Needless to say I will do the same sail colour in the Schooner in progress .

thanks for looking in .......
