Rick, I don't understand your question. Do you have a kit and are looking for others who have built the kit, are you looking for others who have scratch built the model or are you looking for plans? The museum has model kits and reference materials available in book form the last time I was there. The real vessel is very interesting to go through. Jerryj98501

We have one at Burnaby.
On its second owner.
The scratch builder (Kaj) is still a member and has some of his original paperwork.

St. Roch

A gentleman from the Hamilton Ontario Club scratch built this one. It was small enough to carry in a business case and I believe he sailed it one time at Central Park in Burnaby when he was out west. He let me run this model at Spencer Smith Park in Burlington. Very detailed.

I have the kit and was going to build it in memory of my DAD. he was on the St Rock in the RCMP and my mom has some of pic from dad in the old days. I have never built a wood kit like this before. I have done lots of models and RC boats but not one like this. So I was looking for building pic and tips to help me along with it. my be Kaj would just sell me his cheap lol or in any one knows where I can find a build thread to look at.
any help or pic and tips would be nice
Thanks Rick
