    (Tug Boat) Banckert
    Built from a Billings kit I bought at Bury Metro open day. This is quite an old kit and needed careful handling due to it's age. I needed to reinforce the hull in places. Quite a reasonably easy kit to build, despite Billings (as usual) not providing any instructions, jus drawings to guide the builder. (Motor: 555) (ESC: BDESC-S10E) (8/10)
    (Tug Boat) Happy Hunter
    Found this kit on a well-known auction site and bought it for ยฃ100. it is the original Robbe kit and fittings included. There was no command module and so I have devised a way of having working anchors, tow, crane and warning beacon, bow thruster, nav lights and searchlight. It was a bit of a struggle to balance her properly and she needs quite a lot of ballast. A real handful, you might say but she looks really well on the pond. (Motor: MFA Torpedo 800) (ESC: Action P94) (8/10)
    (Working Vessel) Marchioness of Lorne
    Model of a Scottish Lochs paddle boat with twin side-paddles. Bought as a renovate project and rewired and refurbished back to working order. (ESC: twin 30A unbranded) (8/10)

    Hi spitiresooty, on the starboard side there is a staircase from the bridge deck down to the fore deck near the crane. on the port side there is a ladder from the roof of the bridge down to the bridge deck. This ladder is fixed to the bridge wall in front of the portside funnel.
    Hope this helps.

    Hi, I am in the process of building the Happy Hunter now. I have had it in my loft for some years until I got time to build it.
    I would be happy to post pics of the plans if that would help. the plans show details of sub assemblies too.
    Hope that helps.๐Ÿ˜Š

    I had a look at Blackpool show on Saturday. Sadly, it is not nearly as good as it used to be and there appeared to be no new ideas about featuring the show. I did get a few bits 'n bobs that I needed but I could also have got them elsewhere without paying ยฃ6 for the privilege. I thought the lighting was reasonable, although slightly darker in some corners. All in all, I thought Haydock Park was better (but more expensive) and I prefer Ellesmere Port over both of these.๐Ÿ˜‰
