Hi Dave, cheers, I've got some of the George Turner 1:32 scale fishermen to go on, still got plenty to do on her yet, got the rope reels to put on. And I need to make a seine net, I've worked with 1:1 scale seine nets before but never done a 33:1 seine net haha

Hi Charlie, thanks, my grandad has been doing alot of work on her cause I was at sea for a good few days last week, shes brilliant on the water and very stable, I was speaking to Jim last week, he said it has been worth the wait, I'm glad he likes it.

Hi Charlie, no  I didn't build it for him, I just preferred the Andromeda to the other campbeltown boats,  the red stood out a bit more, it was either going to be Jim's Andromeda or Cyril Scott's Aquarius

Do you have many trawlers in your club Charlie? Me and my grandad are the only ones who have trawlers in our club, we go away to England every year to Haydock racecourse to display our boats, buts quite expensive to travel  off the island, the ferrys are very pricey, does your club have a website?

Cheers, is that the one with the bulbous bow? We've got the older style gm38, fantastic model to build because they can fish for anything, we've got creels, dredgers, Queenie trawl and a net hauler on ours, very heavy boats though haha

I have some photos from Can
Milk tubs from the cafes make good baskets/buckets for fish
The aft wheelhouse versions are hard to find.
