Hello

I spent quite a part of my career in UK Government engaged with the fishing and commercial maritime sectors. I think I can safely say that I have visited over 90% of UK ports, sailed on fishing boats, ocean going tugs, dredgers, pilot launches, ferries and even the occasional banana boat. Mostly in my suit with a weather eye on operations. In retirement I have begun to build model ships. Sad I know but possibly better than building a model port in the attic! I am currently building the ESSO Glasgow and would welcome being pointed at detail pictures. Particularly of the bridge.

Welcome to Ships Nostalgia Elizabeth! An impressive CV indeed, and I am sure that members would be interested in hearing some of your experiences.

There are several photos of the Esso Glasgow in the gallery -- click on "Gallery" and in the top RH corner of the page click on "Search" and type the ships name.

By the way, I trust that your project is not a full-scale model?

Best regards

Tony
