Hi all,


new modeler from Tarneit in Melbourne Australia (western suburbs). looking to build a West Australian crayfish boat from scratch out of fibreglass (like the attached images).


will probably need a lot of advice on fitout but the glassing should be fine (20 years working in composites for aviation).


anyway hi all.

Very nice, what scale are you going to do it ?
1/12th is about the best, figures / deck fittings should be readily available . . .
