After many visits to Scarborough and the many pictures taken of the trawler Maggie M i have decided to invest in the Model Slipway model of the Maggie M. This is my first attempt at something other than a plastic model kit or card model. Can anyone who has built this type of model offer any advice and tell me if i will be way out of my comfort zone with this model. I do not want to add rc gear to her and just want her as a static model. Is everything included in the kit. Many thanks

As far as I'm aware all the items you will need apart from the paint and glues, are included in the kit.
Most Slipway kits are fairly easy to build and there are a fair few examples of this model about. Just take your time and if you have any problems just ask, there are plenty of people who will assist and advise you should you meet with anything you don't understand.

I have hit my first big problem cannot find anywhere that has it in stock. Model slipway are modifying it (probably putting the larger mast on). Any help in finding this model would be really appreciated.
