You'd better build a Train next time, Richard.  Your going like one now.   ;)

Seriously a good build. Well done you.  Might come down to see it in the summer.

Cheers

Maiden voyage day today, so off to Setley Pond.

Typical spring day, cold, windy and raining.

She sailed well considering the conditions.

Hello , First time here and thank goodness for the marvel of the internet !

Started this model today from Deans Marine and glad I found the thread before starting it , without the clear pictures and hints I would have gone ahead with the plans ... having now looked at the 1mm deckplan of the boat I see that the hull is out of shape and will need to be brought in to match by almost 1/2 an inch to match.

By the way its not going to be HMS Amethyst but a similar black swan class sloop of the same era HMS Mermaid which my late father served with during his time aboard her.

It will be a static display hopefully by the time I finished I may have gotten some tips on doing a seascape for her to sit in.
