[Score: 5/10] 38"/1400g EGREMONT Twin Propellors (3 Blade 25mm) - Comments: Just Completed another Egremont Mersey Ferry in different colours this time. Not yet decided on power, electrics, etc just for show at the moment. Will probably sell it and let the new owner put in his own electrics.
CONTRA AND COUNTER rotating Props . Actually both are correct. Probably counter rotating is more correct for ships. We could argue for days!! Anyway they both go in different directions. One clock wise when the other is anticlockwise, but make sure they have left and right hand props, not the same type or you will be in trouble.
Spot on with calculations Allen 0.636% donations and only 1.1% last year. Its very sad that we think so little of supporting a great site. So glad you have made us all aware of our shortcomings. Cheers Max
From my reckoning there were only 44 people contributed to the website funding in 2016 with over 3775 members I think this is very disappointing, come on guys if you like the site then make a donation, surely you think its worth £5 for the year. I for one would be sorry to see the site go.
1/48 scale (38 inches long) Mersey Ferry "MERSEY" from early 1900's. Fully working model ready to sail c/w 2.4GHZ radio/Tx. Well detailed scratch built from original photos. Buyer collects from Maghull Liverpool Merseyside UK. £500 ono
Thanks for your kind coments. She was called the Fish and Chip boat because she was the only Mersey Ferry to have a Fish and Chip Bar on board. She had an extensive Dance floor and was great for functions especially with the fish and chip suppers available on board.
Hi! fair comment, but the real thing was far from pristine. Now its in Razzle Dazzle colours on the Mersey and in my opinion looks awful. A friend of mine has made a model in these new colours a good representation but not to my taste.
Go on to the Model Boat Clubs page on this web site. Click on the Colwyn Bay Club Info and click on the locator on the map at the right hand side. This will bring up a detailed map of their location. Cheers max 4Clubs
