2017 Regatta Report by Phrogphlyer Chief Petty Officer   Posted: 19 days ago
More information-I thought a pdf file was pretty much universal in the computer world, but I have been wrong before! I could open it by just clicking on the icon. Such is life. The model ship that some asked about is the USS ANTIGONE, a 1919 circa troop transport. The builders grandfather served on her 1918-1919. She was originally SS Neckar built for North German Lloyd from her 1900 launch until seized by the U.S. in 1917. After her war service she was SS Potomac for United States Lines. The model has 2 main drive motors a smoking stack, navigation & deck lights. Fiberglass hull.

Hi Doug Yes I agree, on the posting page it does say files. I was looking at the heading on the post. Portable Document Files are not Photo files. I suspect Adobe PDF like its Flash player is possibly not that secure and many service providers now prefer using a different and more secure medium. Just about to head off to set up for the Model Boat Convention, kooks like we might have some decent weather. Happy days Dave

2017 Regatta Report by RNinMunich Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 1 month ago
Hi Dave, harsh? It just doesn't work! All you get is the Adobe logo! The site actually says "Upload photos / files"! pdf is a file, and yes you are correct - PORTABLE. QED. Several of us have fallen into this trap. It would have been so much easier for me to have given Marky the manual for the RC set I suggested to him as a rookie. Re THE PICS; I was also wondering about it being a liberty ship cos it's not quite right for an auxiliary dry goods supply ship or oiler. After a period of monsoon rain we now have around 30°, get a lot done outside until evening, then the infamous Bavarian thunderstorms start! 🤔 Just had another one 😡 I used to tell people in the office "I don't want to hear any more crap about English weather! While we have floods my mother has a garden hose ban and brown lawn"! (Ich will kein Scheiß mehr über Englisches Wetter hören! Während wir Überflutungen haben hat meine Mutter Gartenschlauchverbot und braune rasen!) 😭 Glue 'N Glaze and other goodies arrived today 😊 Busy days ahead 😉 Cheers Doug 😎

Doug Aren't PDFs portable document files? It's a bit harsh blaming the site when the caption clearly states "Attach Photos". I agree great looking pics. Could that be a Liberty ship? Always good to hear from fellow Scale Ship modellers. Looks like nice weather lets hope it makes it across the pond for this weekend Dave

Shucks, pdfs don't work on this site, JPEGs ONLY! 🤔 Pics are great though, wish I'd been there. All the entry crap frightens me off😡 Shame cos I liked PA. Spent some time around Philly some years ago, had driven down from Buffalo, afterwards back to Garden City Long Island. Was a great trip 😊 Cheers Doug 😎

2017 Regatta Report by Phrogphlyer Chief Petty Officer   Posted: 1 month ago
I have attached a PDF report of our 2017 Regatta, held in York, PA. USA. Beautiful day, perfect sailing weather. We had to go to a new venue as our "old pond" had a serious shortage of water. Everyone had a good time with lots of sailing, course running and model judging. There were several new builds that had not been seen before.

HMS Illustrious Aircraft carrier by Gdaynorm Lieutenant   Posted: 2 months ago
Hi Doug, No wonder you're a fleet admiral! Sounds as if you have had quite a time, and I'd guess just about retiring, which I've been for some sixteen years now after most of my adult life running tour coaches, twenty years overland to India and Nepal. Resurrected model ship building when I came to Canada. There is a guy in Hamilton with an American carrier which is about seven feet long. He has a special box and trailer for it. Installs the ballast after launching. It sails well, though does not like wind, and is not much to look at. He had it on our lake about three years ago for our annual Canada day regatta. My longest ship is HMS Ceres, five feet. Sails well and is remarkably stable for such a narrow really oversize destroyer. Back to sorting out pom pom control systems about half an inch high, and fguring out how to fit the windscreen to Fairey Fulmars. Best Norm

Colwyn Bay MBC - 2017 Regatta is cancelled by chippy Chief Petty Officer   Posted: 3 months ago
I'm so sorry to read that. I was looking forward to driving over for a really good day out. I hope you manage to get all the permits sorted out for next year.

Colwyn Bay MBC - 2017 Regatta is cancelled by boaty Commander   Posted: 3 months ago
That's bad news. Previous events had been really great. I hope those responsible for the lake and related activities change their minds and get the event reinstated.😤

Anchor Chain by cormorant Admiral   Posted: 8 months ago
Hi Ed. I was thinking of painting it, but how to do it with such small links? My first thought was thinned down acrylic and dipping it several times to try and get and even coat. What do you think? Steve PS. How is the tug and did you decide to build the Pilot Boat in the end? This is mine at a recent evening regatta https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4pTQgjg8ZuY

New Lake at Colwyn? by jarvo Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 8 months ago
Shame about this years regatta, but what an opening year 2018 will be, if you can give early warning on the date i will be there, good luck with the rest of the renovations, you are making fantastic progress Mark

New Lake at Colwyn? by kinmel Chief Petty Officer   Posted: 8 months ago
The dinosaurs went a good few years ago and we have just scrapped the remaining paddle boats. No Regatta this year, our old lake may be empty by then and our licence for the new lake is still a work in progress. This year is all about completing the move and settling in.

New Lake at Colwyn? by pmdevlin Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 8 months ago
glad to see that big lake will be back in use, I'm not that old, and remember the paddle boats there, then it all fell into disrepair. I take it the dinosaurs have moved out of the new club house! I take it general parking is either infront of the old bike rental building (from the prom) or up at the swimming pool at the top of the hill? Will this years mayors regatta be there? maybe I can bring my avatar picture some time!😊

HMS Triumph by reilly4 Sub-Lieutenant   Posted: 9 months ago
Scratch-built Trafalgar class submarine 1986-87. It uses 2 x Engel piston tanks for the diving system. This video was at the Task force 72 regatta at Naracoorte in SA in November 2016.
