I have drawn the plans,eighth of an inch to the foot,I have an Ariel shot of her which is very useful for deck layout,so there should not be many problems. I am going to plate her as would a shipyard,what glue do you think would be best for this card model ?.

Hello Denis,thanks for your reply,no I have never modeled a ship but have a good knowledge of ships having been a Shipwright for part of my working life.I don't want it to look like a toy,more like a builders model.I know it sounds ambitious, but I shall have a good go,it will take some time but I am retired so plenty of time.

Hi Denis,the ship I would like to make is the Canadian Pacific MV Beaverfir,I sailed on her in the 60s.With no plans to work from only photos it will be a lot of guess work I suppose.
