    This is my model of HMS Ganges the very ship that gave its name to the famous or infamous boys training establishment, depends on how you viewed your time there as 15 year old boy seaman,I was there in 19-58 the place opened in 19-06 to 19-76 I believe that 15 year old boys stopped going there in 19-70 when the school leaving age was raised to 16.They used to say they took on 15 year old boys and turned out 16 year old men.I had suspended this build so as to finish my ww2 trawler model in time for the annual reunion at the sparrows nest the home of HMS Europa the patrol service base.

  7. Hello Donald I have had a look at this bottle pic and this is what happens when a model has been put into a bottle that has been washed out and not properly dried out,as you may know the bottle has a mini climate of its own and over time the damp has caused the mould,so it is always important to make sure the bottle is completely dry,I use a hair drier to blow warm air into the bottle after swilling it out with Isopropanol. regards allan sib
  8. This is the first of the 3 armed trawlers to be launched into the bottle
  9. This is the famous Lowestoft steam drifter that once landed a record catch of herring to win the madam Prunier trophy there is a photo showing the heavy laden drifter being escorted into Lowestoft dock having only 9 inches of freeboard,hence the escort.
  10. well go for it and good luck.
