    A Tin Plate Free Sailing Barque
    I remember having clockwork tinplate submarines as a child. I also have vague memories of a clockwork tinplate warship, on wheels, non floating. About ten years ago in France there was a weekly magazine offer consisting of a tin toy and a magazine all about it, They were mainly vintage cars, a seaplane and a warship (wheeled) they were all clockwork and said to be replicas of 1920's toys. I have a motorcycle and sidecar from that series somewhere around. Cheers, Nerys

    Commodore Colin, you are more than welcome to use our existing facilities in South Wales and that would probably be better than trying to operate from Chepstow which is probably your nearest deep water as you would then have to negotiate the shallows of the Lower Severn. However I think it might be an interesting exercise to 'Show the Flag' occasionally in your home waters. Vice Admiral Nerys

    Cruise Liners
    Looking at this from a more general point of view, I wonder how many of these ships will actually go back into service. Ships laid up are costing their owners money even if the lay up is in the simplest of forms. The insurance money alone is huge. I suppose it will depend on when they are allowed to operate again, but even then, will the usual demand be there after the number of outbreaks that occurred on cruise ships. With all the economic downturn and covid related job losses, will there be enough potential customers? I wish I knew the answers, but I have very pessimistic feelings about it all. Cheers, Nerys

    Cruise Liners
    I cannot believe the bay outside of my window at the moment. We usually have visits from two cruise liners per year here but right now we have four inside the bay and another four just outside. The QM 2 is just outside. Here are a few pictures I took yesterday. We are lucky. They seem to stay for a couple of weeks then they change around and more arrive. Eight is the most so far. Sorry about the picture quality but it was lousy weather. Peter. Just checked Ship tracker. There are nine here now.

    I doubt if they still have Beriozka shops in Russia any longer, I do have lasting memories of them in Moscow and Leningrad. There was a big one at the river end of Red Square if I remember correctly as well as in most hotels. They died out long ago in Romania, chiefly remembered there as a source of illegal money exchanges and a place to buy coffee to give to friendly Romanians, Oh! the tales of the Dollar shops, I could go on for hours. However, I digress Fleet, your message re vodka has been received and fully understood. Cheers, Nerys

    To, Fleet Admiral at MBNHQ, Munchen. Thank you for your message which brought some relief. I had visions of a trip across the length of the Russian Arctic to approach the Bering Sea from the west. I have vague memories from my past of reading an article about someone who actually did that in a small boat. I shall put the order for the ice breaker on hold for now. Goodwill visit to Murmansk that's definitely on but I think I'd rather go to Kirkenes for supplies and fuel, the Russian trawlers do that. Vice Admiral Nerys

    I'm getting ready to build my Trent class Lifeboat "Model slipway" they gave colors for Humbrol gloss enamel paint. But I can't find containers of paint big enough to air brush / air gun a surface this large. I don't want to use a rattle can, the largest containers i can find are .5 oz. 14.7mL and they are all acrylic Matt. What are you using to paint larger RC boats that match Humbrol paints? I'm in the USA please don't hold that against me. LOL Thanks in advance. Bruce

    Peter, I believe Slipway being a cottage industry once they retired there was no one with the finances or skills to take on the business. Shame really as after they and the other produceRSM of lifeboats finished, that was it, no more kits!
