  1. This is my substitute ship for the HMT Islay due to conflicting details so I have used another Isles class trawler and this is as far as I have got still a way to go you can see the depth charge racks on the stern.
  2. I have had to substitute the isles class trawler Lindisfarne in place of the Islay due to conflicting pics of the Islay I know that appearances changed during the war,but having clearer details of the Lindisfarne from plans by the late much respected John Lambert I decided to build her.
  3. At last I have completed my Sir Tristram complete with 3 crew on the open bridge commonly known as mount misery,now to continue with my Isles class Islay the Isle class were the most numerous of all armed trawlers and operated all over the world and many sadly were lost
  4. This is a little model that I made in my early days of modelling it is in a lovely little I believe Yugoslavian Mareska brandy bottle I have never found another one.
  5. This is my model of HMS Bounty with Bligh and Christian fell in before they fell out and helmsman on the wheel.
  6. This is a pic of the Q ship Nelson's gun crew.
  7. I have often wondered just how much my 2 yard-of-ale-glass models may be worth, I know that they are the only ones ever done and an appeal by the Bottleship mag did not produce any contenders also an article in a newspaper failed to find any more as I am nearing 80 I am thinking of selling some of my work and intend to leave some to my local museum.

    This is my Sir Tristram showing how far I have progressed,the bottle has the sea added and the hulls removed leaving the depressions to receive the final products,on the hull I have added the wales once the glue is dry I will add the finishing touches and coat of paint ,still a long way to go before completion.

    These are my latest pics on my build log,I decided to go ahead and make the hull of the Islay my second ww2 trawler the reason was that once I have put the sea in the bottle I could then place both hulls in position soften the sea on the radiator and gently press them into position as you can see by my second pic I wrapped the hulls in clingfilm so as to prevent any staining that may occur,and let the sea cool before removing them also its not a good idea trying to press the hulls with all the deck fittings added.
