    Camera Nip
    Wee Nip Camera boat with rotating Gopro.
    Ripmax Tomkat
    Camera boat
    J Class Style
    J Class Style Pond Yacht - Rescued from the skip and given a new lease of life to sail again as "Rudder only" radio controlled.
    Swamp Dawg Camera Boat
    Quick and simple solution to save those action moments - Pair phone or tablet with GoPro camera app, or simply record with remote via wifi.
    RC Laser
    RC Laser - not a home brew of course, but for many years an object of desire due to simplicity of design, assembly, aesthetics and convenience. Love the Laser, but the Wee Nip still my "go to" boat.
    Mickey Finn
    Purchased original Rojair Mickey Finn from Ashton Models 35 years ago - hull suffered damaged so made a F/G mould before repairing and sailing. Made spare hull from mould and there she sat for 35+ years. Original Mickey was sold many years ago but as retirement approached the burning desire to fulfill old challenges re-emerged. So , after putting out calls for help, diagrams, photos or information on the model boat forums, thanks to "John Dowd" and a couple of other guys, I finally got round to resurrecting this fantastic 36" yacht.
    "Genie"
    "Genie" was classic Marblehead design from Vic Smead , she had a hard chine hull construction. Living in New Zealand in the early 70`s I ended up building 4 of these in total - only glad I took some picies. Long gone now, but not forgotten !

    This website contains so much information for current and potential new modellers - and it is a credit to the hard work and effort that is put in by all the administration team. WELL DONE !.

    With so many Clubs and Lakes registered, it would be great to see more photos of members models within this specific area, to showcase each individual clubs range of interest and involvement.
    Christmas Greetings to all and stay safe !.
