John Cobb and Donald Campbell.

Well one reason I wished to make contact with model boat forum is that I am very interested in John Cobb and
Donald Campbell.

  I live by loch ness and I know that these two flamboyant characters were in serious competition with each other for
many years.
  Donald Campbell with his K7 boat and Cobb with his K6 .
    I started to research both models with a view to building a model of each to the same scale.
       This would be a huge task so I decided first to find out if anybody had any models of these boats
which they would be prepared to offer for sale at a reasonable price.
     If there is somebody out there I would like to hear from you.
   Kind regards to all forum members.
       Donald

HI Donald, I know that Speedline make a kit that looks good but I have never seen a picture of Cobb's boat, You can however see them both at the National Motor Museum in Hampshire. Cheers Mick B.
