Designing and making a suitable delivery vehicle for Katie Morag

Katie Morag has a problem - she keeps losing letters and parcels on Struay Island - she needs a delivery vehicle! We have been getting ideas, learning new skills, designing and making our own delivery vehicles for Katie Morag - we hope our finished models will match our design specifications.
