    It's the councils impose the rules, which means of course, that they are hidebound with the dreaded 'elf an' safety, and being completely ignorant of such things they liken a model boat to a steam roller.

    Running steam can be an issue for some clubs and I'm not sure why the pressures are not that high so as to cause a problem.
    But we must go by the rules of the club.
    I'm lucky as my club allows steam but I must say I'm very careful when I run them .

    The corvettes are the matchbox/revell kits at 1/72 scale but not yet built, so no photo's, sorry Bill☹️
    but my Amethyst is in my harbour if you want a shuffty, have got HMS Cossack on the building table at the moment, with HMS Kelley right behind, will try and do a build blog for these two.😊

    Cheers, Pete

    I saw a steam engine advertised at what I thought was a good price recently and my thoughts immediately went to building an African Queen or a Borkum lookalike. Problem, steam and IC not allowed on our lake.

    I cannot find a lot that I enjoy on TV, in fact I feel that I watch a lot of dross, but watching and enjoying are two entirely different things. There was something about all those old wartime films that made them watchable time and time again even if I did see them first time round. I can even remember what cinema I saw some of them. The Cruel Sea for instance was in The Capitol in Cardiff,

    Yes Bill, the corvettes are great little ships, also got two myself, one with all the electrics in, but not yet built, and another still in the box, the thing is,they are now fetching high prices on Ebay, so might be worth stashing them for later.
    How about 'The Yangtze Incident' film, liked it so much went and bought and built 'HMS Amethyst😁'

    Cheers, Pete

    Bill,
    If you get bored again try 'The Enemy Below'.
    A tense duel and battle of wits between a Destroyer Escort, skipper Robert Mitchum, and a U-Boat, skipper Curt JΓΌrgens. That'll keep you awakeπŸ˜‰
