by Jerry Scott
A fine model of the m.s Elizabeth Bowater scratchbuilt by Jerry Scott. Jerry was lucky as he had first hand knowledge of this ship having been a steward on board her in the early 1960`s..

Jerry used the Marine Modeller plans to begin with and I later copied a set of general arrangment shipyard drawings for him. The hull is manufactured using the plank-on-frame method and what I particularly like is the fact that he has put the permanant fenders on the hull, a small but very important detail on these ships, and one that quite often gets forgotten.

She could be on the St. Lawrence Seaway!
Note houseflag on bow
The superstructures, winch platforms etc were made from plastic sheeting, for ease of construction and painting. Alot of the fittings, bollards, vents, winches, stantions are commercially made. One nice touch are the Bowater emblems on the bow and funnel. When Jerry was working he had an interest in a printing company so when it came time to add these features to his model he visited the printing works and had exact copies printed, fortunately for me he sent me a couple of sheets for when I get round to making a model.

I am sure you will all agree Jerry has made an excellent job on his m.s Elizabeth Bowater, she looks great on the water too. Well done Jerry.
