Evening Star PD.1022
« on: July 19, 2011, 04:28:14 PM »

my current build has just started, the 70ft automateded scallop dredger Evening Star PD.1022
ing
using a hull suplied by Bill Wood of aberdeen, hull originally for the Ocean Venture PD.340, thanks to bill for building the stern up for me, hull has been sanded and cut to suit
and marked in were everything needs to go, waiting for materials to arrive then can get deck on and crack on, will be a static model only so no electronics in this 1

my last build was of the Valonia PL.63 for the Isle of Man Fishermans Mission and is now on display in peel cathederal
