Hmmm the last post got me thinking...blue foam, blue ship :embarrassed:   Anybody got plans for, or know where to get, plans for ex Rosyth ferry  "Scottish Viking".  It is now ploughing the Swedish Baltic coast.

Well, she was built in Italy - you COULD try contacting the shipyard and see if they can help with plans. Might be difficult - Norfolkline / DFDS are notoriously difficult to get sensitive material like drawings out of...

Hi  everyone. I found this stuff on the Wicks web site. I want a closer look at this so I'm going down to my local branch to see if they have any. It may turn out to be the wrong stuff but if it can be used, What do you think of the price, is it good value?

Hi Ali - I like the look - and the price! - of this stuff. Let me know what you think when you clap eyes on the stuff. Far cheaper than blue foam. Could be ideal for the plugs. It only needs to hold its shape until the body filler has been applied. I can live with having to wear gloves and a face mask when working with it - common sense really!!!!
