Wife bought me a nice little book cheaper than the original cover price ,decided nice little paddle tug would be the next project enlarged the drawing in the book to desired size hull will be 30"(760mm)long keel and frames were laser cut will build the hull and plank then cut out for the paddle boxes ,don't know if this is the right way but it made sense to me

Mark Me too. Unfortunately it's not necessarily any better as now you may need divers to recover the model after an accident! Don't ask how I know. Dave

Must have been the 262! I just discovered that Vintage Model Company does all these old jet powered kits now! Laser cut of course, including my old KK Hawker Hunter. 👍

Quite correct OT 👍 95% Ethyl alcohol (Ethanol), 5% Methyl alcohol (Methanol)! Optionally with a splash of gentian violet to taste 😡 NOT FOR HUMAN CONSUMPTION.🤐 Over here they call it Brennspiritus! Just discovered I can get at the local DIY warehouses 😊

Triton by sandkb Admiral   Posted: 9 days ago
Very nice vessel. I'm thinking I will have to build a recovery craft of some sort and something like that would do it for me. Weed is a bit of a problem where I sail and have been thinking a swamp boat (airboat). Any thoughts ?

👍 In the meantime I discovered that 'TT25' is the designation for a whole series of exciters and speakers right up to big cabinet speakers! Some for stage use😡 What did you order this time? Doug 😎

Alan I tend to agree but if they cover all your costs I suppose this is in their T&Cs. I hope you get sorted soon
