Title: What is it?

What's the fishing boat on this months front page is it a kit or scratch built also what size is it, I must say it's one of the nicest modern fishing boats I've seen for a long while.

Definately a Cygnus, by Models By Design, maybe a 33,  but I agree it is a cracking build. They do a great job, I have just ordered the  Tug, Flying Drake, from them, picking it up at Blackpool.

No, on looking again I would say a GM 38.

It's a Cygnus 33 or 38 by Models By Design 1/12 or 1/16. I agree it's a great looking boat and have been tempted myself,not a bad price either. They'll be at Blackpool next month. Dave. :-)
