That looks very nice, my sort of boat, don't quite understand how you have stained a FG hull though.

It's a shame there are no drawings for this boat

Finally Finished touching up the paint after It being unused for over 5 years and now working better than before, after putting a new brushed 280 motor Into the boat. The boat Is roughly 850mm long and 141mm wide and was built by my late Grandfather when I was little.

Badger Customs Launch - Posted: 4 years ago by 4clubs
Scratch built some years ago, powered by 6volt PB battery.
She was always very slow and hard to manoeuvre. She was made from MM plans. I could never get her to behave In the water. 27Mhz TX/RX. tried changing motor, prop 6 to 12 volts nothing seemed to make much difference, gave up In the end. You can't win them all.

Nice Cygnus 4clubs. I am building a GM32 Cygnus from a pre-formed hull. My model would have had the older shaped wheelhouse. Where did you get yours as they may have the older one In stock for me. Thanks In anticipation.

Response by 4clubs on the 24th Jun 2015
I got It from "Boats and Bits" In Newton le Willows who closed down over 10 years ago.
Try Steve at Scale Hobbies In Skelmersdale.
Google--- Scalehobbies Skemersdale.
Good Luck
Response by Ballast on the 24th Jun 2015
Thanks for the Info, I'll give It a go. trouble Is I've had the hull since 1982 so It's a bit out of date as Cygnus then started to produce the GM 33 Continental like yours. But I'm not beat yet, even If I have to end up making the wheelhouse from scratch ! 😰
Talacre - Posted: 4 years ago by lhpen
SS Talacre - Single Hatch Coaster 1:48 Scale Just recently bought second hand and about to renovate to my own standard!
Caldercraft SS Talacre
The SS Talacre Is a typical single hatch coaster used In the coal trade of a type that was found by the hundreds around the coast of the U.K. In the golden era of steam. Designed for Point of Ayr Collieries by Crichton, Thompson & Co Ltd., of London she was built by Crabtree &Co., of Great Yarmouth In 1917. Talacre was named after a small village near the colliery. Talacre was finally scraped In 1959 by the Hammond Lane Foundry In Dublin. Realism leaps out of the completed model, as If a turn of a valve will start the anchor windlass or the cargo winch clattering away and the lagged steam pipes to begin steaming and drying out.
Scale: 1:48
Length: 863mm
Beam 152mm
