That is very cool. I have seen a few different ones of these and have been meaning to get one to build.
It looks great.

I saw similar models like that at the Clarendon Classic 2 years ago. They are very clever in design.

Hello Ian
Excellent. They look like good fun.

I enjoy building models and I like the Billings boat kits. I'm about the start another one after I have some surgery. They're a great way to not go banana's when your grounded.

Cheers Scott

The thing about these models is they are all timber "No metal parts '
No glue, No screws,

Hi Scott

Sounds like a plan Scott, I'm having my prostrate surgery on the 24th, better have a look on line and order one.

Hello all
I had a look at the website Ian. They're quite reasonable in pricing for model kits I reckon.

Cheers Scott

If you are thinking about doing one of the models. you will need a few items
Sandpaper, there is small piece in the box, found it too small
I found the corners on some pieces a bit sharp? to fit into the square hole needed a light sand to take the corner off
Bought some hobby files (Supercheap Auto) as some of the holes a bit to tight just need a very light file
Candle wax on all parts to help to slide together
