Anybody from Peterborough MBC here? by smiggy Sub-Lieutenant   Posted: 1 hour ago
Thanks Gerry, your post came as I was posting my reply to the above. The links I found didn't have the /frame.htm ending which makes the link work. Sometimes I don't get the imterweb Anyway, thanks again to all for helping. Graham

Anybody from Peterborough MBC here? by smiggy Sub-Lieutenant   Posted: 1 hour ago
Thanks guys. When I Googled it I got several links to the web site that didn't work, except one to their photos page. It was a trip to Deans Marine and a chat with Ron that prompted me to get in touch with the club (he didn't have a contact number to hand but we both thought it would be easy to find) for advice on solving a problem we've got at our club. The link came up with the goods. I've phoned Mick, their secretary, and left a messaged and he has phoned me and left a message but I'm confident that we will be talking to each other soon!

rudders by reilly4 Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 11 hours ago
I would prefer to use brass rod for the rudder shaft as it will be easier to cut and also to solder the rudder plate.

Upper & Lower Chines by rolfman2000 Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 17 hours ago
Oh how this brings memories flooding back from 50 years ago, seeing the same construction as my original Veron Police launch (that's sat in the garage), going together. I bet the fit is a darned sight better than it was all those years ago, what with cad laser cut pieces and cad designs as well. I'm following this with even more interest, as I have permission of SWMBO to get the new bigger kit when it becomes available. Fingers crossed, not long now. Keep the installments coming Robbob. Best wishes, Dave W 😊

Smoke/steam output for models by timgarrod Lieutenant   Posted: 18 hours ago
Will it have a fan controlling it ?

Upper & Lower Chines by RNinMunich Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 18 hours ago
Simple Rob, Instead of attempting some almost impossible bends of thin (0.5mmx5mm )planks, I'll cut it out of 3 interlocking pieces (each side) of 1.5mm mahog sheet. Will probably end up looking more like it would have been done on an original 😊 Cheers, Doug 😎
