A beautiful model which took place in the Bury MMMS annual regatta in either 05 or 04

Different trawler to the Boston Viking Jan , the mast is different and the wheelhouse is different. Looks like the registration is FD 17 which would make her the Steam Trawler Teroma registered in Fleetwood and operated by the J Marr fishing Company.

The hull looks like its based on the Metcalf Mouldings one for the Portia but with a slightly different wheelhouse / lifeboat deck arrangement. If you have a clearer , closer photo of her I should be able to identify her for you.

OK if its FD 11 then its not a model of a "real" boat then. Well as far as I can find out there isn't a trawler of that type registered as FD 11 , BUT , I will dig around tonight in my old books see what I can come up with.

No matter its still a very nice looking model.

Almost certain now that its based on the Portia Hull from Dave Metcalf but I don't think its been based on a real trawler. Still a very nice model from what I can see.

No, definitely not. It's a Boston somethingorother, probably based on the Kingston Mouldings hull Boston Fury, I've just checked on their website, and it looks exactly the same to me.

Nope its definately not the new maquettes kits. I think its definately based on the Kingston Mouldings Motor trawler hull with a different wheelhouse, aft supertructure as Splodger says the hull shape is definately identical.

Nice model all the same.
