1/32 Trawler from Bosuns Model Boats
« on: December 11, 2012, 04:20:09 PM »

WOW,
A large box arrived this morning containing the mouldings from Bosun ( member on here) for his 1930s Trawler.
 
A large rusty red Hull with all other mouldings in grey. Ive used hull mouldings from most of the suppliers here in UK over the last 28 years ( !! ) and i must say this is the best of them by a long way. Crisp details over the whole length, and you havnt got to trim the top of the bulwarks for the capping rail to get it level........... its moulded in !
Being a luddite when it comes to posting pics on here, i will give a link to the ad on his website. Highly recommended if you are looking for a big trawler, and id think  that the other hulls listed are just as good.

if you know her class then it may widen your search to her sister ships , some of those may have been converted to ASW as well , i know it may not be your ship but it could give an idea as to how she may have appeared as an ASW trawler

many thanks Stormbringer, she was an individual boat impressed into service rather than one of a class built for the job. Ive been informed of an out of print book that is available, ( whatever did we do before Ebay and amazon ?) that may have a picture. Its ordered and i will let everyone know soonest.

I heard the cover was the drifter Mun or Young Mun. I think I have found the text but no pictures at http://www.harry-tates.org.uk/tgtw.html

Edit - this looks good too Royal Navy Trawlers by Gerald Toghill - Maritime Books - 2004 - Hardback - 584 pages - ISBN 1904459021

Norseman, the book that you mention is a very good listing of requesitioned trawlers ...... but alas very few pictures.
 
Mikerace, a 900 type with an 80mm Propshop 4 bladed  piece of cast elegance behind..
 
Justboatonic..... im always wary of starting a build thread until i have a couple of months worth of pictures already taken, I find that SWMBO always wants redecorating/rebuilding works doing around the house. ( if i put pics on as i did them , you would all know that she has made me stop and do other things instead of building the boat !)

good morning justboatonic,
 
yes there will be soon, ive got the motor in, and deck supports done......... and SWMBO has come up with the classic , " another boat ? looks like the hall and landing need redecorating" I take it noone wants to hear of my wallpaper stripping adventures .
As soon as i get started  on the boat again, i promise pics and words.
