Hi Mick, tried to pm you, but it went a bit weird (computer weird) Ricky has all your parts so will try and get it posted to you over the weekend. Mark (Jarvo) haven't forgotten your one. the one cut for Mick is 50% bigger approx.30" do you want yours this size or the 20" version? . Cheers marky
After the mention of the Wolraad in the harbour I went raking in the loft for some photos ,could only find the one rest must be at the oldies the missing ones are of the engine room, bridge and the decompression chambers and some of the hull on the slips will dig them out and post them ,scrapped before her time
Hi Doug , My wife is an ambassador for the Scottish whiskey society here in Edinburgh ,which means she gets invited to sampling events and tours of distilleries its a hard life but someones got to go along as her guest and to help her home 😎
Rather than clutter up the other post there is a 3D printable baking soda sub on thingiverse measures about 100mm long ,also saw them on amazon reproductions of the Kellogg original which seemed a bit expensive .
oh the memories of fighting my brothers for the subs I think the five of us must have lived on cornflakes (other breakfast cereals are available) so we could have one each ,if memory serves I think there was also a baking soda stingray ,not sure if this was a freebie with cereal I seem to remember it being bigger. Cheers Marky
Just to agree with Doug the Bluebell is gorgeous👍👍 , the shipyard I served my time in Henry Robb built quite a few of the Flower class I remember there being a painting of HMS Dianthus (sunk by a U boat if memory serves ) and photographs of Pink and a few more in one of the management offices ,always wondered where all the models went when the yard closed .
Hope this doesn't sound to much like an advert and me like a salesman ,my work use a company called Tilgear for tools and some materials such as vac forming plastics ,anyway to cut a long story short we needed to buy some balsa and purchased assorted bundles it seemed reasonable to me price wise . e.g. 30 sheet bundle 100mm x 450mm consisting of 10 x1.6mm thick 5 x 2.4 mm thick 5 x 3.2mm thick 5 x 4.8mm thick 5 x 6.0 mm thick £ 29.95 + vat, discount for multiple orders they have bendy ply and acrylic etc. etc. Worth a look. Cheers Marky
