2016 Regatta was a success! by Phrogphlyer Chief Petty Officer   Posted: 10 months ago
Our August Regatta went well, lots of fun but there was rain in the forecast so attendance was off a bit. Had about 48 models, 23 skippers. The first photo is of the SSMA display with my IJN URANAMI, made from a paper model kit. The third phots shows the Captain's briefing board for the steering course. MV PAETRA (last Photo) built on last years prize of a free hull from Loyalhanna Dockyard by Norman Brailsford, he researched the ship on the internet, obtained photos and went to work. Real nice job! We all had a good time, finished up just before the rain came!

Task Force-50, Your, PA. USA FUN FLOAT by Phrogphlyer Chief Petty Officer   Posted: 10 months ago
Our July, 2016 Fun Float was a great success! The weather was perfect and we had a great number of spectators, met a few new Captains who just came to sail with us and see what we are about! We had up to 6 scale sail boats on the water and several powered boats. We were also experimenting with "on board video" which we are setting to music and commentary. Even the wives enjoyed the day of great weather, a snack bar, walking trails and each others company. There was even talk about relocating our regatta to the "Muddy Run" location.

USA model boat clubs ? by Phrogphlyer Chief Petty Officer   Posted: 11 months ago
Hi, Not sure if this is what you are looking for, but I have attached a copy of the Scale Ship Modeler Association of North America newsletter, "The JOURNAL". (I edit it) Most of the clubs I have been involved with will allow any model vessel. Generally we are not all that specific or exclusive, if you like model boats, you are in! Well, hope you enjoy the issue, please let me know your thoughts or if I can help you anymore. Mike Toole

I edit the SSMANA JOURNAL by Phrogphlyer Chief Petty Officer   Posted: 11 months ago
Hi all, I don't know if anyone would be interested in this, but I edit the Scale Ship Modeler Association of North America "The JOURNAL". This is our July edition (attached). I am experimenting on submitting this, also checking topic interest. In any case, if it works, you might enjoy the read! AS an aside-I will be spending this September in Winchmore Hill, north of London. Any good shows I can attend? Are there any hobby shops I should visit? I will be haunting all of the museums I possibly can! Thanks, if this works, I hope you enjoy The JOURNAL. Mike

Muddy Run Fun Float by Phrogphlyer Chief Petty Officer   Posted: 12 months ago
Wow!!! What a great day at the lake! The weather was hot, but absolutely perfect! Enough wind for 5 sailboats to hit the water, including a 4 masted Chesapeake Bay Smack. 10 Captains attended with about 20 models, including some in various stages of completion and some past winning champions. The snack bar was in operation with the usual great chicken cheese steaks and pineapple milkshakes. The entire event was free and they even gave us a nice donation for "putting on the show"! Thanks to everyone who attended!

USS ERIE by Phrogphlyer Chief Petty Officer   Posted: 1 year ago
[Score: 8/10] 47"/4400g USS ERIE Capable of 5mph and a runtime of 120mins Twin Propellors (3 Blade 35mm) Direct Drive to a pulled from old machine, don't know history or type (3 Blade) Powered by Lead Acid (6v) 4Amp/h Batteries - Comments: Scratch built from original (damage control) plans. Great looking model, a bit top heavy though. If I "land" the aircraft to shore, it sails much better. Looks good on the lake.
