I live in Greater Manchester and have been building model boats for a good number of years.
I'm a kit builder and to date I have built eight models, all of which have been a
pleasure to build. My favourite kits have been purchased from Model Slipway in Barnsley, as I have found these
to have clear instructions and building plans.
On the bench at present is a 12 gun British frigate, the HMS President, built in the mid 1700's.
The build is of a plank on frame construction, which is something I have wanted to build for many years.
I'm keeping a photo diary on the build progress which I will share on this
I'm a member of the Etherow Model Boat in
Compstall, Romiley. They have an excellent website with some useful information, plus plenty of hints and tips. They also have details
of events around the country. (Click on the link to browse their site)
