Soldering 1/12 Scale Brass Railings by Haverlock Admiral   Posted: 5 hours ago
First take a deep breath and calm down. Soldering is easy if your only using 2mm material I would get a reel of 60/40 cored solder. Use a decent sized electric soldering iron. Clean all your joints well ( use a fine abrasive like 600 wet and dry). Apply the iron to the joint then apply the solder remove solder remove iron. You made a joint repeat until you have done. Try not to burn yourself. Clean any flux with meths and an abrasive.

That sounds very similar to my iPad.

I PHONE APP by RHBaker Captain   Posted: 19 hours ago
The problem on my I Phone is that, once opened, you cannot open the Featured Articles or the Recent Pots categories. These can be selected, but the posts remain unopened for hours. E even if the phone is turned off/on. This is also intermittent as sometimes it works perfectly.

Hi Stephen, My iPad only allows me to open Recent posts now and again (like now), so I haven't been able to explore its features. I have had to use Safari to view. Regards Edward

I PHONE APP by Fireboat Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 20 hours ago
What part of it is not working? I only know of one bug currently, uploading photos in posts causes the app to crash. Working on that now with a view to release a new version in the coming weeks. No other issues I'm aware of? Stephen

Amara by Rod Petty Officer   Posted: 1 day ago
I built this one from a Caldercraft kit and powered it with a twin screw steam engine Model has steam horn sound together with bilge pump and fully equipped lighting system Have extensively weathered the model to create realism to imitate what it probably looked like after many years steaming and working round the world in the 1930's A smoke generator has also been fitted which together with the twin screw steam engine gives a realistic look when on the water

I was asking if you and your club members would be interested in some interclub fun racing, not a link for your club site.
