Wayne.................those props certainly look to be a good profile & design after cleaning :-)) and for the style and vintage of the vessel, brass/bronze aged finish always looks better than red paint

I certainly do not know the answer, however it may be best to research the direction of the props......ie., either inboard turning or outboard turning.... again I understand you are not sure of the exact Class of vessel, however I suspect most types of this general design would have similar handed drives.......Derek

Hi Derek, I had thought inward turning, but I didn't think they might be outward turning?

been working on this boat again - plenty of sanding and filling and primer and sanding, it wont be perfect but as a rebuild will be OK. I have also been drawing up a new superstructure - Will build a card model of it to see how it looks once I have the hull sorted.

Right worked it out, do not need the image button - Some of the older pics - you can see the old superstructure in the one photo - That has been thrown away as it was awful
