1890's Nile gun boat "Saphia"
« on: December 14, 2009, 04:20:16 pm »

Built this in the summer, "Saphia" is based on an old Model Maritime kit brought at Rushden cavilcade for 20.00. I have made a few mod's added boats and have made new guns so far.

Dicky, its best appreciated in the summer.  The Anglia marine model club meet there on Tuesday evenings in the summer.  I am sure you would be most welcome if you were ever up here.
