    I'm pleased to see you have painted the inside of the boat, as well as the exterior.
    Knowing how water will get into the insides of every boat, no matter what, it vexes me to see so many boats with unpainted interiors.
    Perhaps I'm moving in the wrong circles ? 😉

    "Any Details on the Turbine?

    Trev.. This is an elderly Wren 54 configured as a 2 stage drive (ie. the turbine is a gas generator which drives a turbine driven gearbox). You can see the setup in the Video of the mechanics running.

    A very sophisticated and complex-looking piece of kit and I guess pretty damn expensive. Mind, there is nothing quite like the real thing, and it makes steam engines look quite cheap in comparison. I very much admire your piloting skills very impressive flying display and a pretty good cameraman into the bargain. Great stuff and have you ever thought about a twinhulled Budwiser type speed boat using a turbine as a power source? Regards, Gary.

    Model airplanes,helicopters, and jets have always had my intrest but a friend of mine who was the importer from China for these products drew my attention to the cost when crashing. So therefore I did stick to modelboating which seems to me much more safe.

    Built by Buxton Model Boat Club member Adrian , he says :- "essentially the paddle boat is scratch built but uses some fittings and materials from a Disar "Vanguard" kit ".
    Adrian used drawings of "Flying Scotsman" for inspiration, but is not a faithful reproduction, although "Old Trafford" is also quite similar .
    This was the maiden voyage so plenty more work to be done on detail and ballast etc.as the boat still sits a bit low in the water.
    For reference see :-

    Just taken dads old boat out and it handles well. I might add some short chines to the aft section just to stop it skidding out so much on turns and it is a bit over powered. Only running on 4 S in the video, 6 S next 😂. Not sure if the YouTube link works.

    Believed to be from Revell Models , " INGA IV " is a model Ketch , owned and sailed here by Martin Ward of the Hayling Island Model Boat Club.

    RCSailing is just for fun, no gain. Other than sharing photos and videos relating to Buxton Model Boat Club activities, from time to time its nice to "showcase" models from other clubs and members as seen here with the link between BMBC & HIMBC - all sharing the common interest in model boats and the "Model Boat Website".

    Callie Graphics is a great outfit.

    They will provide vinyl graphics of any kind to meet you needs. Their products are far better than anything you can do with decal paper and a computer printer or stick on letters. They are sensitive to the needs of model builders. Prices are very reasonable and service is prompt. I have used them many times.

    Hint: when purchasing graphics from them I buy spares in case things go wrong while applying them of they are damaged in the future.

    That’s a great progress, you are moving fast in your renovation.
    Maybe you like to create a dramatic entrance like this.

    Hello cdnfurball, you slipped a bit too high with your contribution. But no problem. Thanks for your feedback. Yes, the trailer would be mobile, but I jacked it up in our garden and it should stay that way.

    Ok, here are the last pictures. I attached shelves to the front wall for my finished ships. Immediately on the right I converted a kitchen worktop into a workbench, I mounted it a little higher so I can work standing or sitting on a bar stool. On the left there are 2 small cupboards, there is my storage space. As lighting, I attached a large lamp with 2 LED tubes, because the sun rises. In the meantime, things are no longer so neat in the construction trailer, it's just a workshop. That's it, I hope I didn't bore you.

    Good morning
    Now comes the final sprint, at least on the outside of the construction trailer, the window frames with windows, the roof arches are newly made and installed, the white corner profiles are also installed, as is the dummy chimney. Socket and ventilation in the front wall. Apart from the rims and the drawbar, the trailer is finished on the outside. Now comes the interior design.

    Then it continued inside. First, insulating material, in the form of glass wool, was installed in the space between the walls. Then it was time to clad the interior walls and ceiling. Finally, laminate was laid on the floor.

    I am unable to make head or tail of the order in which posts and comments appear so I cannot be sure that I have used the correct 'add comment' box.

    Anyway, I have now seen two lots of pictures showing progress being made on re-cladding the outside of the 'shed', and I like what I see. In fact, I feel quite jealous because this is just the sort of job I love to do.

    Keep the pictures coming, and good luck ! 😉

    Hello
    We continued with the right outer wall, the same process, old boards off, new boards ran. I closed the window on the right side, my workbench will go in there later, but that won't work with the window anymore.

    okay, let's continue.
    First, I removed the extra boards that were attached. Then it got colorful. I then started with the bulkhead and removed the first original boards and immediately replaced them with new boards. I had to cut each board exactly to size. That's actually how I did it for the whole outer wall.

    Hi Flaxbybuck
    Firstly, I'm not a sane person.
    Secondly, I immediately fell in love with the trailer 😍.
    And third, no, I didn't really know what I got myself into.
    But when I started the restoration and I saw how the trailer slowly became my project, I knew I had done everything right. I have to say that I learned to be a car mechanic when I was young and actually didn't have much to do with wood.
    So learning by doing.

    My word! I have only just seen some of your pictures showing the condition the hut was in before you started work on it. Most sane folk would have run a mile upon seeing it. You are obviously of sterner stuff and were not at all fazed at the prospect of months of hard, and dirty, work.
    You have my admiration.
    Please show us how the trailer looks now 😉

    Good morning
    First, I completely gutted the inside of the car. The condition of the wooden framework was actually quite good. I only had to replace a square piece of wood here and there. I didn't have to do anything on the floor, it was still ok. Where the scaffolding has dark spots, it once rained. The inner wall and ceiling consisted of thin cardboard, which is where real wooden boards come at the end.

    Hello
    Here is the trailer at our home. The first diagnosis.....there is a lot to do. Boards were screwed over the original wall, they will all come off for now. The window can be opened by pulling it inwards and dropping it between the wall. To close it, pull it back up with the ribbon. Everything is still in its original condition. As I said, year of manufacture approx. 1963.
    The last picture shows the original wall.

    I paid 1000 euros for it, not renovated. I guess I invested another 500 - 1000 euros for the restoration. And yes, I'm a trailer for construction sites and road construction, still common in Germany, but a bit more comfortable than this one.

    This trailer looks very much like a shepherd's hut or road mender's hut as seen in the UK years ago. They are now converted for use as holiday accommodation and fetch ridiculous prices.
    Good luck with your conversion😉

    Today when I woke up the first email I opened was the one of your workshop and I flipped.
    For a very long time I have being a fan of these kind of “Gipsy Wagons”, I even have a model that soon I will put together.
    There is a long story about UK Gipsy Wagons.
    Their intricate carpentry work and art are marvelous.

    Hello Cenbeth
    The trailer has the foundation walls of 2 m x 3 m. Unfortunately, there are no plans. My plan from the start was to replace all the walls, inside and out, with the rotting wood. Close the right window with wood. Inside on the front wall, shelves for my models, a worktop on the right almost along the entire length. There used to be a wood stove in there, electric heating comes in, the chimney remains as a dummy, that's something. Those were my plans, which I implemented for the most part. All in all, I want to rebuild as much as possible in the original state.

    Ok, I'll just start. I have little space in my house for my hobby, so something had to be found and then I got the offer for this construction trailer. I struck immediately. In the next pictures I'll tell you a little bit about how I restored it. I found him in that condition. I didn't know then how much work I still had to do. In total I used a good 2500 screws and a lot of wood but more on that later. As I said, that's how I found the trailer.
