Now she is a beautiful ship T888! I bet you are as proud as punch at how well she sits and sails?


Superb work  :-))

Hi All,
It's been some time since my last post, but I've found the removable section of the deck was cut to far forward. So I had to remove the section and replace it  {:-{ >>:-( .
Now it's done I have started work on the main mast.

Wow what a nice build. She cuts a fine wake, has a nice tactical diameter and appears very stable for such a narrow fine hull. You have done a fine job of keeping your weights low.

Thanks All,


Most of the credit must go to the full size ship designer.


Yes I'm very please with her performance , I just need to keep the weight down with the remaining fittings so as not too upset her.


In the next few months I'll try to see how she performs in bad weather. When I do l wil post a video.

Is the mast made of styrene and brass?

Hi Ian,
It's made from plastic tube, but I've put copper wire inside this help with strengthening and helps to keep it light.

Oh, that is clever! You get the best of both worlds with an easy glue surface and light weight strength.

Slow progress, but started to make the search light.
It Needs the LED, lens, mounting bolts and paint.
