Hi, Phil,Happy New Year to all!!! Does anyone have any info or photos of the Pacific Fisher which finished service in 1985. I think origionally she was called Jopulp a mini bulker before being converted to Irradiated fuel carrier??
Yes , I remember that - who was the Mate? But that wasn't as bad as when I made a model of the tanker Thames Fisher (for Fisher's). Took ages and lots of brainbashing to get all the pipes and valves etc. in the right place, and all handmade of course. When I had finished it and installed it in it's glass case, I took it into Fishers office and presented it proudly to Dick Forrester, who said "Lovely job, only problem is the hull colour - it's blue, not black!" so it was stripdown and repaint...Hi Kevin,
Many thanks for photo brings back happy memories.
Can you remember making the Sanpiper and having to keep changing colour of top gear from Buff too White and back again due to the mate unsure which colour he prefared.
