"Wembley was a reference to a certain historic world championship footy-match in the 60's between England and Germany with an outcome some old germans still argue about.  {-)

Thanks Arrow. This guy IS German. Sadly I've never even been to the UK. It's about time...

...Hi Aurigarius...

Was that the same world champions that got beat in their next game at Wembley against Scotland...I think the score was also 2 - 3....Quite ironic really...

Back to the main subject...This kit is a fabulous idea and it looks fantastic...Keep the reports and pictures coming...

I have moulded several Springer Hulls in GRP and they are now scattered around the Uk...

...Best Regards...Norry

...and very stout hulls they are Norry. :-)) Thank You !  Now we have commercial interest on the continent we should be thinking seriously about the Moissy Cramayel (France) club`s invitation to their Springer Only event on April 11th 2010.   Aurigarius how about a German Team ?  Any Brits fancy Paris in the Springertime (oops)?   Norry a Scots team if the sassenachs dinnae fancy it ?  Ryanair from Prestwick for a fiver if we book now ?   Have a look at www.moissycramaylmodelisme.org for details and regulations etc.

...Good Morning Duncan...

I.m afraid there are no Springer Tugs in our current fleet...Wee Johnny was fed up because there was never anyone else to play football with so his Springer Tug was sold in a recent clearout of our Workroom...It was replaced by a Damen Stantug 1906 for Tug-Towing...
"TIBER" is now down south performing heroic acts as a club rescue boat...

So in order to take part in this French competition I would have to build at least 2 more Springer Tugs...I,m afraid there are 4 more projects in front of that...

...Best Regards...Norry & Wee Johnny...

Right lets get something straight from the start, I have in my fleet,,
Tugs
!.. Imara
2,,, Ironsider
3.. Northsider
4,,,Envoy
5..,Dutch Courage
6.. Lady Jan
7 Flying Drake   ( to be Started)

Fishing Boats
!... Boston Typhoon
2,,, Scratch built crabber on a Cygnus hull
3...Cygnus SF  33 just started
various other hulls that will be built, when I am ready to do so.
I consider myself to be an experienced modeller, as others who have seen my boats will testify, certainly not as good as some on here, but certainly not a novice.
Other people who have a good standing within the modeling fraternity, have posted on this thread regarding this kit built Springer, there observations generally favour the springer kit, and the fact that it could be used to bring young modellers, and those who may not have tha facilties, or woodworking skills  into our hobby. ( God knows we need the youngsters)
I have a young grandson, who is the world to me, but I would certainly not let him near any of my boats untill he is older, and I would certainly not let him near any sharp, or power tools,  but then again, guess what, he could sit at the kitchen table, get all and sundry covered in glue, but he could, also with guidance build this little Springer, apart from the electrics, and you never know, we could have another future modeller, surely that is,nt a bad thing.
 I see over your many posts that you like to build springers, you also take some great photo,s, but that doesnt give you the right to take the proverbial, and as for being a mug,,, lets just say you would,nt say that to my face. As you have probably guessed,I am the guy who bought this little Springer.
I apllaud Auriigarius, for at least  trrying to do something positive within our hobby, and I suggest that if all you can do is make snide remarks, it would be best to keep them to yourself.

PS , To the Moderaters
 I mean no offence in defending the fact that I bought the Springer, but I am offended by bigotry and the use of the term ..... in relation to what was previously posted

I'm sorry to see you take what was obviously to me unless i mis-understood arrow5 a bit of banter, a joke if you will. it is something that happens on here frequently. I hope you and your grandson have many happy hours getting the glue of him as he builds his first boat, a memory he will treasure, as i do mine when I built my first with my fatner, now sadly passed. And i was in my late teens then.

News from this side of the channel.
We have made this very nice missisippi-style version of our springer and we like it very much.
I hope we are able to make better pictures soon.

You ARE having fun  :-)) Very nice, I expect the prop wash will drive the paddles in an entertaining manner -
unless you're making it paddle driven  :o  {-) {-)

We have not made it paddle-driven. But I am curious to see, when the first kit builder manages to do that. ok2

Bosun I am sorry that you are offended.  It WAS intended as a joke. I ask the moderator to remove said post and remind myself to keep my mouth shut in future. :-X

Hey Duncan,

I don't feel offended. So no need to remove anything from my point of view.

Bosun,
Look forward to the pics of your grandsons build,and a very good explanation,as to why these kits are favourable.
Please remove said grandson from table,before glue has set,for first test float. :}

Hy mark
How are you.
Thanks for the comment, we only get to see him about once a fortnight but it,s a good place for him to start, as with all kids, it,s keeping the interest going is the problem, but as it,s an easy build, he should see quick progress and that should Gee him on.
Cheers

Dear Aurigarius

I've been following your Springer design with interest, I must say youv'e done a super job. I have buit a few areoplanes from laser cut kits but not a boat. Will your Springer kits become available to purchase? I'd love to buy one.

Keep up the good work.
