    Mystery Light
    Hi all hoping to get some help identifying this light (no124 on drawing) it is on the wheelhouse of the Milford Star
    Caldercraft
    Kit. It was a Round Table class Minesweeper converted to a Steam Trawler. I want to have it working so would like to know the purpose of it. On the drawing it is called a Morse lamp but never seen one that shines 360 degrees,and doesn’t seem high enough for an anchor lamp. On the foremast their is already a navigation light and red and white lights for trawling, a stern light is fitted at rear of superstructure. What could be the use of this light?

    (Working Vessel) Northlight Clyde Puffer
    The Clyde Puffer is a
    Caldercraft
    kit of 1:32 scale. it is a representative model of a typical small coaster from the Western isles of Scotland, known to many ship lovers as a 'Clyde Puffer'. it has a GRP hull which has full external detail, riveting, strakes etc. and a plywood superstructure and decking plus over 200 white metal fittings. As usual for
    Caldercraft
    you need to have your thinking cap on as the A0 plan and the 'instruction book' do not match up but of course they do expect you to have a little bit of experience in model building. it has taken me about 6 months to build, but working on and off over this time. it has a large hull which is easy to house the motor, ESC, RC and batteries, etc. (I installed 2 lead acid 6 volt batteries, one on each side amidships) which gives stability and ballast. Being a large deep hull it needs a lot of ballast, even in its short length. I have only tested her in the big white test tank at home so do not know how it will perform on our lake. I have sailed her many times on our lake and she certainly sails well. I installed an electronic switch for the navigation lights and gives a good effect during the darker afternoons/evening.

    (Naval Ship) Sir Kay (T241)
    This is my Sir Kay (T241) - Round Table Class Minesweeper. it is from the
    Caldercraft
    range and I was fortunate to recently acquire it - I would have much preferred to have built it but couldn't miss the opportunity of it being given to me by an old retiring modeller. it just needed new RC throughout, a good clean, a tidy up and some fresh paint here and there plus a bit of rigging renewal. Not tried it in the water yet but will do tomorrow at our Club meet. (Motor: MFA Geared 2.5:1) (ESC: Mtroniks) (5/10)
