Hull Length:1080mm (42.5") Beam:205mm (8") Scale:1/38th
A close to scale model motor trawler of the type that made up most of the British deep sea fleet before larger and more efficient stern trawlers made them obsolete. Although the design is based closely on vessels owned by Boston Deep Sea Fisheries, particularly Boston Fury, many other similar trawlers of the period can also be modelled using this hull. A certain amount of guesswork had to be used with the hull and a few other areas, as no accurate hull lines or original builder’s plans were available, but our detailed drawing shows most characteristic scale details of this kind of vessel. Two excellent models, both built as Boston Fury can be seen below. The second pic of a superb prize-winning model built by Canadian Paul Frankland is particularly impressive.
