Wolraad Woltemade by marky Captain   Posted: 2 days ago
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

baking soda sub by marky Captain   Posted: 8 days ago
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 😎

USS Hanley - by marky Captain   Posted: 8 days ago

USS Hanley - by marky Captain   Posted: 8 days ago
Really fancy a wee shot of building this ,going to have a look for the plans later

baking soda sub by marky Captain   Posted: 8 days ago
Hi Doug ,im an old Pulteney man myself 🍹🍻.cheers Marky

Re Boat Harbour entries by marky Captain   Posted: 8 days ago
need more pictures ,re the wolraad ,worked on the building of this magnificent ship as an apprentice and was lucky enough to be on the sea trials and some pictures would rekindle happy memories

baking soda sub by marky Captain   Posted: 9 days ago
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 .

Finished by marky Captain   Posted: 9 days ago
Arnold Swartzenager and Sylvester Stalone as the crew no ones going to mess with that work of art

Perkasa MTB by marky Captain   Posted: 9 days ago
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

Tilgear by marky Captain   Posted: 11 days ago
got the T shirt now with the matching brass plaque ,should look good in the man cave

Tilgear by marky Captain   Posted: 13 days ago
Hi Doug ,thanks for the link had a nice wee morning browsing i served my time there in the 70s and it brought back some happy memories of the ships and of the great men who worked there .Cheers Marky

Tilgear by marky Captain   Posted: 14 days ago
I had thought the painting was of the Dianthus but it was actually of the Polyanthus I had just got the names mixed up ,thanks for all the info 👍👍looked at u boat net which has reams of info.

Tilgear by marky Captain   Posted: 14 days ago
Have since been told by someone with more knowledge of the painting is that it was of HMS polyanthus and not Dianthus ,to err is but human.

Albion by marky Captain   Posted: 14 days ago
Pre smoking ban in the workplace I see 😊

Tilgear by marky Captain   Posted: 14 days ago
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 .

Decks by marky Captain   Posted: 14 days ago
you have the deck do you build the ship that fits the deck from the deck downward (the hull) or upwards (the superstructure ),wasn't really being serious in fact very tongue in cheek.

Tilgear by marky Captain   Posted: 14 days ago
Not sure about the prices over here I get all my material by trawling the workshops scrap bins ,I think up-cycling is the modern phrase for it rather than hoarding and scavenging.

Tilgear by marky Captain   Posted: 14 days ago
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

Decks by marky Captain   Posted: 14 days ago
are you going to start working from the deck up or from the deck down? 😊😊

Soldering 1/12 Scale Brass Railings by marky Captain   Posted: 15 days ago

Soldering 1/12 Scale Brass Railings by marky Captain   Posted: 15 days ago
Flex looks a bit dodgy ,but if it does the trick "it does the Trick" cheers Marky

Wayne as you are the grand master of 3d printing I don't think there's much you cant print

eezebuild RAF tender by marky Captain   Posted: 17 days ago
hi Mick, hope you are on the mend , once things settle down in the workshop I will see what Ricky can do for you . Cheers Marky

eezebuild RAF tender by marky Captain   Posted: 18 days ago
Hi Mark(jarvo) Ricky is back from his honeymoon and will get you one cut in ply when he has a minute, he has to get the workshop set up for the students coming back on Monday and then has a few weeks of workshop inductions ,but will try to do it sooner than later . Cheer's Marky
