She's looking good, very nice. You realise you're shaming me into getting mine finished.  :embarrassed:  I keep doing a bit here and there but something else always seems to crop up! Keep the pics coming, Dave.  :-)) :-))

once i got stuck in for a few days it flew together, painting it took longer but result well worth it, the extra hatch makes things so much easyer and nothing is botherd where it is, nothing had to be moved, had it in the bath, plenty of power in it, had 2 2pint milk cartons and two 1.5 litre bottles full of water for ballast but she still needs more!!

Will have to get mine finished, she's pretty much there. Only big jobs left to do are the stanchions/railings all round, fore mast, painting her and wiring up all the lights....Hopefully be done for the new year! Dave.  :-))

Try Maplins too, bit more expensive than online but you'll save on postage and will be sure you've got right one, Dave. :)

got a battery of ebay and had her in the water, very impressed with it, steers well, even without a thruster, even when towing a net. had her rolling about in the current of the river and is very stable aswell

Hi there all, I've been doing some more to mine in between other things and she's finally getting close to being completed. Some of you may notice the radar is on the 'wrong' level of the mast. I moved it down as I wanted it to rotate and if built as in the plans the motor shaft would have to cut through the vac-forming below it and that would look awful so I swapped them round, call it artistic licence! I've also modified the trawl boards so they look more like the ones in the photos on Model Slipways photos of the real boat. I've strengthened and/or replaced some parts as I want to sail her regularly and want to try and reduce the risk of damaging her in transit etc. Still got some small jobs and assemblies to build but she's more or less done The biggest job remaining is the stanchions and railings, but all the slots are cut out and they've all been cleaned up and are ready to be fitted. More to come soon hopefully, Dave.  :-))

ive cut an extra hatch in mine, between liferafts and forrad mast, makes getting battrey in and out and ballast so much easier, well worth doing

More work done yesterday and today. Fitted the handrails and stanchions and done some more of the smaller fittings. Still debating whether cut another hatch on the deck for better access...hmmm. Just need some good weather so I can get spraying, could be a long wait, Dave.  ;)

I would love to do this build. It looks very impressive and the photos are great - nice work guys! Sadly I don't have the space to store anything that large.  Even my MS Trent has to live on my work table, when the table's not in use. Guess I'll have to look for something smaller (narrower).

Thanks for the compliments. I must admit I'm struggling for space to build these days but I get there in the end. Really going to struggle with the 1/12 Severn Class! Our Lass isn't much bigger than the Trent, just more of a lump! I'd highly recommend it as a kit, how about Model Slipways Maggie M? She's a bit smaller and not quite as tall I think. Just want to get her all painted now, more pictures to follow but working the next few days so won't be doing much until next week, Dave.  :-))

Maggie M looks nice. I have to fit any future models on a 240mm window sill and Maggie M is 255 mm - Oh well, it won't be the first hangover I've had  :}

Thanks for that. I will be doing a build thread on the Severn once I get started. Got a few other jobs to do and finish off first, she'll be based on Holyhead's  17-41 Christopher Pearce. That's the boat I'm standing by in my profile picture, had a good look round it earlier this year and have loads of photos of it. Cheers, Dave.  :-))
