        No,,, No,,, No,,,

It was the worstest  part of the worstestest day of my life...

I was driving along in my nice Navy Blue car when I suddenly realised it was """NAVY BLUE"""

So I rushed along to the nearest" Halfords" to get some Paint & brushes to put it right...

The Girl in the shop suggested "I paint it Pink", to which I agreed....Certainly Better Than "NAVY BLUE" I Thought....

She then added " You will have to rub it down first then paint it with a Primer Paint"... " That way you will get a better finish"...

Then came the Bad Bit...The Primer Paint was ...................."BATTLESHIP GREY" !!!

Now...Would that not make any grown man Cry...A Car That Looked Like a Battleship...

...Best Regards...Norry...

                              ...Its Navy Blue in colour...

Hello

I've served with the Navy but no way for me to have a RC navy ship, the difference is that in the real navy ship there is no grey in front of you ...

Monday the Red Oktober is supposed to made a port of call at the navl base of Brest  O0

Nothing wrong with grey pent says the "gallon and a half at a time man " ;D  ( I`ll explain that someday Xtian)  That is why the old Ford Transit doesn`t come up very well on radar,the other half gallon ;).   We hope Red O is looking shipshape and Brest fashion. Tri-colour or Bretton black and white ? We await photographs.......watch that radiation in there :o

To us, onto a Hungarian country when expected?
The children wait for it very much already.
True, it would be possible to sail in spring only, but a little feast would like to be kept.
During procession away I started amending my website, Angol and Magyar to two languages on a language if he interests somebody possibly.

Happy New Year Papa, we have not forgotten you, just a small blip at Xtain`s location in Brittany. Red O may be "running silent" on present mission 8) but we will inform you as soon as she surfaces. Perhap a communications failure {-).  Will be better for you when ice-free water allows operations in Hungary :-))  The Scottish water has gone "hard", see pictures below. :o >:-o Change of subject , any progress with your planned stern-wheeler Springer ?  I like your new website very much and thank you for English translations O0.  Best wishes for 2009 to all in Hungary.

I say thank you for your felicitation. :-))

I translate my website continuously, because from this forum many people enquire about our works.
The mississippi springer a project did not cease, only just steam engine there is production in a process.


The nautical season begins with us on the front of a May, I would like to be ready by that time with him.
There are an other running project, an ark on the Thames meanwhile 1:in 2 sizes.
A new racecourse is made during time for the children, with a pier tying up and with a lighting tower.
If he will be already from them photograph, then assume from that direction.

An Elf Daddy occupied very much welcomes everybody :}

Aha Papa, I had forgoetten that the stern wheeler was to be steam propelled also...magnificent !   The "ark" on the  Thames, do you mean a Thames sailing barge?  You are making a harbour for mooring with a lighthouse , good, the children will have a lot of interest in the racecourse.  Roll on 1st of May :-))

It would be possible to skate already on this. %)



I started making this ark for the children onto a May.
My fortune, I happened to build up a very good website to it, in this manner quasi only is needed.

http://www.ivorbittle.co.uk/chapter2/section%203%20all%20parts.htm

He managed to discuss it with the proprietor of the website that we may popularize it freely here on Hungary.
Right popularisation is not needed though at it, than to win the children onto a little game.
Where I live, the single little city on the coast of Danube, from Budapest onto 50 kilometres. Here because of the middle of a May, we get together to play on a Friday, the coast on all weeks, to model, to sail.
Here we wait for Red Oktober :-)

AH yes , a Thames barge.  The word "ark" in English language usally means the ship of Noah in the Christian Bible !   I think Ivor Bittle is one of the leading experts on modelling that type of craft. My friend Sandy has no sails yet for his Thames barge but we tow it with my Springer sometimes. Looking forward to the month of May !
