Model Shipways Hildina trawler (1951)

This week I went to a modelshow with a good friend of mine and before we went to Germany we had some coffee in his house. He told me he had a present for me and came up with this beautifull model kit from Model Shipways. It is a motortrawler from Hull (GB) and the kit is released in 1954. All the parts are there. A hand made wooden hull, some other wooden parts, a full set of drawings and a box of white metal fittings in their original paper bags.


I am very happy with it and I hope to build it in the future. But that will take some time tough.












Kind regards, Kees

Great kit, I got two of them, one with most of parts lost.

Too bad the real Hildina sunk (within a year of her commission I think),luckily without any casualties.

There were so many trawlers built that looked similar, you could probably build any from this kit.

How about a peaceful Soviet trawler like this one:
