  1. Norden, Billing Boats

    Thank you for your comments on the paint job. It was hand painted I filled with milliput and used standard wood primer I think I used 3 coats of humbrol enamel. I know you are building one as I am following your build with interest.

    This is my first build completed Yee ha . It was hand painted using standard wood primer and then Humbrol Enamels. I've learnt a lot, I've made mistakes but it's been a thoroughly pleasurable journey. No time to waste as my HMS Fly arrived today, bring it on. Feedback welcomed

    Hi Nigel. Thanks for the welcome. I used to go fishing on the Swale at Asenby quite a few years ago when river fishing was fashionable. In latter years I used to go fishing at Woodlands Lakes at Carlton Minniot. Not been for about 4 years now. Weather not good at the moment so rather stop in and whittle anyway. Cheers John

    Hi Jim Thanks for the welcome. It is a big jump I know but I just love the look of it. I found a good site that will hopefully help me here: http://hmsfly.com. There doesn't appear to be anything about this model here on MSW unless anyone knows better? John

    Hi Mark Thanks for the welcome. I will indeed post the finished Norden pics where you suggested. I will also attempt to post a build log as I did take pictures. It actually took me seven years to build: 2010 started building 2011 - 2016 collecting dust on shelf 2017/2018 now retired and weather not so good so completed Cheers John

    Hi Keith Thanks for the welcome. I have lived here for 60 years so can't imagine living anywhere else but that's an age thing. Your builds are amazing by the way. Cheers John
