Cut the funding for the "
" family - fund the Monarch only - not the hangers on. That should leave enough for Waverley's boilers ........... Cut MP expense allowances too..... i- they are overpaid anyway.

Daffodil ex OVERCHURCH
After a complete refurb the Overchurch was renamed the
My model depicted here is scratch built on fiberglass hull to 1/48 scale.
She now rests in my workshop next to the original Daffodil circa 1918 after she gained the "
" status for her role in the raid on Zebruggee in WW1 1918 together with her sister ship the Iris.
Daffodil rests in Vittoria Dock Birkenhead laid up and will not again see any service again.

(Naval Ship) Graf Spee
It's a Graupner premium line ATR! ;-/ Wanted some 'quick fun' while working on more complex constructions (HMS Hotspur H Class Destroyer 1936, 1:72 and Type IA U26 also 1936).
Didn't work out that way! On first test of motors and ESC I discovered that the shafts were so badly fitted that they were binding ;-( So back in dry dock for some hull surgery! That's why some inputs are missing above. Plan is to gradually add functions and special effects; lighting, gun controls, magicians Flash Paper for gun flashes. Maybe fired using my old glow-plugs!!??
Now I'm freshly retired I have more time for this ;-), as long as Gisela doesn't drag me off around the world too often ;-) I also have HMS Belfast from the same series (approx 1:128) also awaiting fitting out. More soon - don't hold your breath please ;-) in the pipeline is some 'Plastic Magic' with Ark
, Hood and Bismark all to 350 scale ca 70-80cm. Sorry been in Munich for over 30 years don't think in inches any more (except when buying mag wheels for the chariot!)
Cheers, and as my German boating friends say 'Immer ein Handbreite Wasser unterm Kiel!) = I wish you always a hand-widths water under your keel.
I sail on the lake in the Ostpark near me in Munich. Very convenient, right next to the Biergarten! 😎 (Motor: 600) (ESC: Graupner Navy V30R) (5/10)
