The ship acted well even under full helm and the roll was what I would expect from a destroyer

The ship and its performance drew Praise from the club member present which in itself is no mean feat

Hi Pegasus, your fix certainly looks to work a treat, now off to look for the triangular plastic on the Deans website and get it ordered for Javelin. ^^^

Fitting the bilge keels after the model is completed is no fun, when preparing the hull that's the time to fit them. I built 1 72 Flower class Corvette a few years ago the kit came with bilge keels that had to be fitted to the hull I used these as my guide although a larger scale I used the same dimensions on the Solebay. Had the ship at Richmond today the conditions were fair with a good wind and even when the ship was caught side on to the wind the roll was minor and what I would expect.
