Are we to take it then that the HFM Thames Barge is now no longer available ANYWHERE, under ANY name?    {:-{

You could try Speedline for a set of mouldings as they have just supplied me a set for the HFM Type 23

Thanks AB, but it was just the HFM kit I was looking for. I built one years ago, it was a great little boat for it's size....I wonder what happened to that one?

I bought a 30 inch vac-formed Thames Barge Hull from Midway a few weeks ago

Could this be the one?

Martin, do you think the article would help a reasonable scratch-builder like me?

Andrew, are you a reasonable scratch builder? More like unreasonably able, I'd say :-)

Just to make sure you know........
Speedline are currently selling the old HFM Thames Barge, updated with laser-cut parts instead of printed plastic sheet and some laser cut sails and new winches and .............
well, I could go on. Have a look at my (whoops sorry) their website.
Only 175! Could this be correct???? Can it be done for this price?
What wonderful value for money.
