    Those drawings are in 3rd angle projection. Ist angle used to be used in the UK, and sometimes called English projection.

    You need to draw, i.e. copy those views, Front and Plan , on to some drawing paper, then project an end view. Difficult to explain without showing you. Have you a drawing board and instruments ?

    I use Aquadhere, which is a waterproof PVA type glue. I also use epoxy resin for some bits.

    Hi Alan,
    I, too, am building a Clyde Puffer. Mine is scratch built ,and same scale as yours. I have installed a 6:1 brushed electric motor. I wanted scale speed . The shaft length was 11" from memory.
    Interested in how you get on. Clyde puffers were lovely ships.
    Cheers Hugh

    I have two working,one almost there and another scratch built coming up, plus 5 static models. We are strange folk, but must have something in common to be building and sailing them.

    Thanks to all of you who gave me some advice. I found out that The crystal on the transmitter was missing. it was in the box, so plug in and great joy! Tears of happiness. I bought this set years ago in Dorchester, Dorset on a trip to see my parents. I think it is a bit cheaper to buy here, but I will compare next back in the UK.
    Cheers, and thanks again guys, much appreciated.Hughie๐Ÿ˜Ž
