Nor Star 'Wave Rider' - Posted: 8 years ago by kalamunda
HI Dave. Here are a few pics. of the cabin and rear deck. I have no Idea If they are correct as I have been unable to get a copy of the original drawings. The cabin top fits Into a coaming / channel and Is held In place by a rubber band, you can probably see the hooks In the photos. The rear deck sits on a ledge. It does not appear to be very watertight but seems to work quite well. Hope this helps. - John

Deans Marine Seaplane Tender - Posted: 8 years ago by chrislang
Just a few more pics, this time of the 1/24th Scale Deans Marine kit I used to scale up the superstructure dimensions for the restoration of my fathers 1/16th scale ST below. Again although built some 2 years ago this was It's first outing on a lake, once more at Crealy near Exeter.
Both 441 & 1515 operated out of Lyme Regis In WW2, 441 on record of rescuing the complete crew of a downed Flying Fortress and 1515 picking up 26 paratroops from Lyme Bay on D day.

Hello Chris , We are back from Interstate. My email In the colony Is <(Email Removed - PM Only)> for the post card pics , please? I will sort out how to attach picture details of my big Seaplane tender. Lyle
Response by Lyle on the 23rd Feb 2011
HI Chris , well slacko Lyle Is again alive and well . I am at *email removed - PM only* and home address at *address removed - PM only*. I have desperately searched the web and so little exists as to Internal cabin and aft well pics. I have done the asr site and the coastal forces etc and the original John Pritchard moved so many years ago to the north of the UK and ceased to write, perhaps his health was going down . OI joined the returned asr club as a non serviceman and they have a good newsletter of the coastal forces of the still surviving returned servicemen of such a fine bunch who did so much for their nation. My surname Is Gadsden , I have the 43 foot seaplane tender , the whaleback, the broad beamed seaplane tender and a part built 68 foot Hants and Dorset to finish one day . I am not too computer literate, sorry > See ya Lyle.

British Power Boat Seaplane Tenders - Posted: 8 years ago by chrislang
First outing In 51 years for my 1/16th scale Seaplane tender, built originally by my father In 1953 and believed to be an Adamcraft Kit, found with a damaged hull and virtually no superstructure In the loft of their house after my mother had moved to a residential home several years ago. I had moved to Lyme Regis In Dorset where several of these craft were based and which was my fathers Inspiration for building this Initially, so I thought It time to try and restore her.
I had some difficulty finding plans of the ST and eventually bought and built the Deans Marine 1/24th version of this craft, which I then scaled up to rebuild the original.
Power Is by a 600 motor with 2 channel radio and seems to work
well on a 7.2 v battery pack.
I've now joined Exeter & District MBC as It appears to be one of the nearest to us In Lyme and the pics show the ST on the Dragonfly Lake at Crealy.
I would be Interested In any Info. anyone might have as to Adamcraft as my searches have turned up very little. I believe they specified a Tacol electric or Mills 1.3 petrol engine at the time, but my memory might well be flawed as I was only around 10years old at the time.
