Hi, Gents,
 I have the Caldercraft 1;48 kit of the Joffre, but would like to make it as the Fulwell, or is it the fullwell, can anyone tell me the differences between these two boats thank you for any help you may give.
                                                  regards, Sentry.

Not sure of the build difference but the right name is Fulwell and one principal difference was that the Fulwell was named after an area of the 'dark side or the place that shall not be named Sunderl***D'  whereas the Joffre was a Tyne Tug that was built to ply its trade in the place of divine light and happiness to the North of that place.  

This might help but I had to divert my eyes when I copied the web address to avoid being forever tainted.
