    Hi Colin,
    I completely understand it is all about the safety of the children.
    Interesting about the design differences between the boys and girls.

    If it looks right it probably is.

    Hi there Martin, I had a meeting with the headmistress yesterday, and I have to wait till the board of governors make a decision, until then I can't name the school or the children, but am allowed to repot on the progress.
    Week 1, first sketches hung in the classroom and surprisingly they all have a similar profile. Boys seem to want police type boats, girls preferred things like coastguard and rescue boats.
    Week 2(next week) they will be trying to make card superstructures and trying for fit and look. There will be 4 groups, so 4 potentiall models, as the whole top, deck up will be lift off.
    I have made the under deck supports, and 4 blank decks in 3mm ply for them to use.
    Further updates next weekend.
    Cheers Colin.

    Wish you were around in my school days Colin, would have loved to get into the hobby years earlier than I did, all my school chums, were into football, but not me.😐

    Cheers Pete

    I will have to ask the schools permission, but as long as they don't mind I will do my best.
    Cheers Colin.

    Thank you guys and gals for all your praise.
    I'm only doing it because I want to share what bit of modelling knowledge I have amassed over my 65 years of modelling, I started with my grandad when I was 5 years old.
    It seems that the first model that you make should be out of your own head, that way you can change things as you go.
    That way you enjoy what you make, and are more likely to carry on making.
    It's fortunate that my grandson is at a forward thinking school who already have a lego club, also a meccanno club. Both of them are well attended and enjoyed.
    Much better than those stupid electronic games machines.
    Tomorrow I will find out how well they are getting on with their designs.
    Cheers Colin.

    That's really good to get young people involved although it does take some enthusiastic adults to get these things going. I think that both the young and seasoned modellers are both willing, but creating the catalyst is the challenge, but when it happens its great. Well done Colin.

    What a fantastic thing to be doing Colin.
    I hope that it could turn out to be a regular thing in that school and maybe it might speed to other schools as it is not just design work it will teach them new skills.
    Well done.
