Tank you! Just received kit about an hour ago. Life's good, I reckon. Shegoes well with the matching scale cutter. This is truly a dream come true!

Brass Fittings - Posted: 18 days ago by bilzin
I don't know if this is of interest to other modellers, but I was trawling through Ebay's wares when I found this supplier and, on a whim, decided to once again try my hand at using etched brass parts. As you might see, not exactly the biggest of fittings, but they really test the patience and skill.
Also in one of the photos is the brass bending tool I use and the supplier can be found at http://stores.ebay.co.uk/models-parts-shop?_trksid=p2047675....

Wow! That site has some unique parts that I've been hunting for. Thank you!
Response by circle43nautical on the 29th Nov 2017
Thanks again for posting that ebay vendor. I needed two signal searchlights in that scale for my US Coast Guard 210' WMEC Cutter USCGC VIGOROUS (WMEC-627) model. Right on!

Klondike - Posted: 2 months ago by Brightwork
This was just finished by my brother after a four year build. He used plans from the original sternwheeler from Whitehorse, Yukon, Canada. We grew up there so there is a connection. She is seven feet long and the hull is built entirely from popsicle sticks. She is bound for the museum in Whitehorse as a static display.

Amazing craftsmanship
Response by Trillium on the 25th Oct 2017
Great work. A superb example of how a scale model gives viewers a 3D view of something that exists now only in 2D images.
Response by RNinMunich on the 25th Oct 2017
Brilliant 👍
Love the detailing, and on such a mammoth scale as well!
Popsicle sticks! You must have made a lot of children very happy👍😉
I've heard of others getting all family and friends to 'collect' coffee stirring sticks ...
Next model with zig million matchsticks perhaps ? 😉
Shame we will never see her under way but a superb memorial to her and her crews. Cheers Doug 😎

ALL THE TOY SAILING BOATS - Posted: 2 months ago by Les-Forbes
Anyone know who made these glorious boats, particularly through the sixties and seventies. Countless hours with the children watching them sail round and round till the wind would act in their favour and bring them back to shore. Frequently though, had to wade in with my trousers rolled up to rescue them. Of course the crying would stop then.

DRAGONFLITE 95 - Posted: 2 months ago by Les-Forbes
Too good to let go. Will it come back. Will it come across danger on the high seas. Will the battery fail.

Response by Dave M on the 5th Oct 2017
Joysway models usually sail well straight out the box, once you have managed to fit the rigging!
Batteries will usually fail if you have not charged before sailing or you have a servo stalling against its stops on full movement.
Nice sailing lake👍
