model trawler Viola

Hi Colin,
My grandfather was a Chief Engineer on Aberdeen trawlers up to the late 1950's. I have only recently started researching some of the boats he was on, and came across your magnificent model of Viola on ebay. She appears to be a sister of H41 Leonato, also of Hellyer bros, later becoming Dandara, my Granda's last boat out of Aberdeen. I am hoping you could give me (a complete beginner) some advice on building a model of such a vessel, regarding sourcing accurate details, drawings etc. I am shocked at the lack of info on the Aberdeen fishing Industry in general on the net, finding most things via Hull, Grimsby, fleetwood etc. Hope to hear from you.

Kind regards,

Brian Mills,
Dumfries, Scotland.
