After a number of years away from model building due to work and other hobbies, I started again in 1992, initially building ‘Plaudit’, a Thames Tug,
working with the plans and hull from the ‘Model Boats’ magazine.
I have also worked from kits, but now totally scratch build using the full size vessel plans, photographs & information from the vessel owners & other companies involved in the design & supply of equipment etc.
I have built in various scales, but not always from the plans original scale, as with ‘Grampian Pride’, which I am building at 1:42, this scale has enabled me to fit commercially made working tunnel thrusters’ into the hull.
Both ‘Far Saltire’ & ‘Far Stream’ are at a scale of 1:75, as at this scale the model can be handled easily, but large enough to show a lot of detail.
