So who is the mug....er lucky recipient ? Just so we can torment him/her
Right lets get something straight from the start, I have in my fleet,,
6.. Lady Jan
7 Flying Drake ( to be Started)
!... 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 .....
