paddle tug Aid by marky Admiral   Posted: 2 hours ago
my wife got the book online from a company called Abe's books i think they had 3 or 4in stock ,it does have fore and aft rudders and is very symmetrical looking ,Aid was built in 1889 and worked out of Ramsgate ,I have only built static models before (3)so will build the hull and decide from there, I am attempting to draw the wheels using CAD and will hopefully get them water jet cut or photo etched at my work

paddle tug Aid by colinhubbard Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 2 hours ago
Like your plan, is the book readily available, from the picture I take it that the tug has for and aft rudders, are you building with independently driven paddles or single shaft. Love the shape. Best wishes for a super build, Colin.

Chris Craft Corvette by Brightwork Lieutenant   Posted: 4 hours ago
I saw this boat online a few years back and have coveted it ever since. It was built by an incredible man who I believed passed away and left this. The boat is "Balboa" Panama. Hopefully someone will know more about her. I would sell my entire collection for her. "note the mans hand compared to the engine"

3D printing by marky Admiral   Posted: 10 hours ago
Einsteins theory of relalive infinity is again proven to be correct thanks to the advances of 3D printing 👍😁,there printing a 3D house in one of the Scandanavian counntries but i couldent find the link again and there was me thinking that Lego was advanced😁

3D printing by RNinMunich Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 12 hours ago
Of course not! It's recycled. They send it round a Black Hole to 'spaghettify' it, then wind it back on the printer spool 😉

Dear Doug... thank you. I am very lucky to own it. It sails perfectly too and certainly gets interest from passers by - young and old
