Just completed another.    A bit too big for my comfort zone this time - 20'=1" - 18 inch hull length!

Lovely work, Bob, well up to your usual very high standard. :-))

She's a very attractive subject, too. I don't know why, but there's something about that style of vessel that really appeals to me. Perhaps it's because in days (long) gone by, Sydney harbour, and probably every other harbour in the world, used to be full of them, and the sight of one (even a model) takes me back to my youth %)

Bob a beautiful model.  Takes me back to my time at sea. As Peter says we used to see lots like this around to world,
it seemed most of them were flying House Flags of British companies (nearly all long gone).  We used to call them up
by Aldis Lamp and find out their destination etc, then we put in reports every quarter as to the state of they signal
skills.  It was so if we suddenly went to war we knew which ships could be a liability in a convoy because of poor comms.
We got to know some of them quite well and quite often got invited over for a drink next time we were in harbour
together.
Most of the British boats had excellent comms skills and seemed quite happy to see us in the middle of nowhere.
Seems a world away now.
