The boat was made by my father, many moons ago now.
Its not really big enough to pass muster in 7mm scale and too modern for the period I’m trying for.
So I’ve decided I’ll remodel the deck structures into something more appropriate eg the steamer Foy unloading coal at Pentewan harbour around 1905 - end of post
(the Pentewan Rly is an obvious influence).
This would still leave a problem with the hull, the bow is the wrong shape, raked in whereas it would have been vertical at this time.
I can either make a cosmetic change which would probably take away the models ability to sail, leave as is or do a proper job
(not my favourite option, requiring too much labour, time and probably more skill than I have).
If there are any boat modellers on the site any advice is welcome.
