If you know what magazine it was featured in could you order a back issue ?
As for the scale i think scale parts of that size would be hard to obtain , could be wrong tho ,, the last fishing boat i had to that scale i built the hull according to the plans and everything else to 1/12 scale and she turned out pretty well , parts on this scale are easier to find , andy

hi Matt
This is my 1st post
Not sure if you will look back at this thread but i have also just started making this trawler.
Just been made redundant so tiyding the loft and found some old copies of model boats with the plans and build instructions on building the Shirley Ann
So decided to  have a go
could copy pages for you if that would help or if you have built yours you could post a photo
Regards Randy
