Hello Tim,
 I have the hull and now the deck fitting kit am making mine as the Wearsider but there was four of them build with very little differences the hull and fittings are very good and well worth the money Anth is a very nice guy to deal with I would say all of Orion Moulding Hull are very well made with no problems that I have found and I have bought four so far, am not that far from you and have a lot of photos of the Wearsider and Holmesider on my computer if you want to pop over then this virus is over. As I say you will not go wrong with Anth or Orion Mouldings.
                                   Regards Howard.

Hi Howard
Thanks for the offer , I  might pop across the bridge when things are back to normal. I have heard about the quality and service from Orion Mouldings so no problems there .
Have you decided on motor/power supply yet ? What size prop is needed pls ?
Thanks again
Tim

Hello Tim,
the motors I always use are from Mobile marine models there T12 not cheap about 45 but I only like to set up and put a motor in once there really good motors loads of humth  the kort is 100mm ID so i would think you looking at a 98mm or 95mm prop I have about 100 photos maybe of the boats and the build. I think Anth may do you a build cd when you buy the Hull or the fitting mobile marine is only about 12 miles from me. your more then welcome to come any time once its safe. I havn't started mine yet.
          Regards Howard

Hi Howard
Thanks for the info, I agree about only installing a motor  once ( I have struggled to changed the odd motor to improve performance before once or twice  lol)
Cheers

I can create a gallery for sharing your pictures Howard if you want to email them a few at a time to me. No problem at all for me to do that. I pay a fixed rate per year no matter how many pictures I host.

Hi Andy M
I'm sure  the cost of materials go up every year , and it does include p&p as far as I can see.
I was hoping to see them at a show this year as I would have liked to have a good look at it before I buy. (I can't say that I have seen one at any of the shows I generally attend).
Thanks
Tim

The hulls are the best and good value
I have an Esvagt that I will probably not get around to building if anyone is interested.

Hi Brian I bought it on impulse after seeing David Perry's (Fantastic) but I have so many builds waiting I will  have to rationalise. Don't forget I still have a Maltby among a dozen others  %%


Nice picture  :-))  I will keep it just in case  8)

Hi Andy and Brian
I have only ever seen one of their hulls close up , no questions regarding the quality.
That looks like another large model...
