 Best releasing of "Magic Smoke" was in the afternoon.
 I was standing on the bank by the railway when someone flew past me to the far end of the lake.
 A few minutes later, the tell tail smell of fried electrics came drifting down the lake.

Cheers Martin! It was too hot to hold but lucky there was some water handy {-)

The car stinks of burnt things and there's a nasty brown stain in the boat where it melted - fortunately that was the only nasty brown stain :embarrassed:

Today was brilliant and I'll be back tomorrow with new ESC!

We'll Guy the biggest laugh we have had is that Phil and I decided to get it running so Phil cobbled up a batt and I locked the rudder and we went straight running and it scored a perfect 10 and is a perfect straight runner according to Phil.

Well Tommy has not helped matters at all as he fell inthe lake on the way from the lake so he ended up having an impellers wash with the hosepipe !!!!

And yes I am still alive just about personally I think god help me when I get home and I will be blaming YOU for the divorce lol


Dave....................now sleeping with Tommy I'n the awning

a perfect ten !!!!- spot on !!

will let bob  know his tug has gone to a good home and may end up being a straight runner !!! LOL

Got home at about half past three,
just about dried out and warmed up.
Who's up for next year ?
Wind last year,
water this,
maybe sun next year.

No it didn't rain, I heard that we suffered a rare occurrence of vertical mist! :}

Thoroughly enjoyed ourselves, Wicksteed Park MBC wishes to thank everyone who attended, especially Martin and the Mayhem steering committee, for without them this fantastic event could not have been held. :-))

It was nice to put names to faces and names to other names I had the chance to thank in person (Dodes, Bob K, Bill D203 to name just a few) who have helped with my model builds of HMS Gnat, CMB 213, K class submarine and queries in to the unknown dimensions of HMS Protector.

Might see some of you at the Doncaster show next weekend, that will be the last show I'll be visiting as my time is almost up and I'll be leaving the green land of England to enter the unknown (well to me!) of the freezing cold Falkland Islands in the South Atlantic for 4months!  To quote a fellow mayhemer the penguins will be stealing my sanity one by one! ;)

Until next year when we will get sunshine even if I have to mortgage my soul to get it.

It was great to chat with you Nick, and to see HMS Gnat close up.  Wow !  It's larger than it looked in your build log, nice work.  Thank you to everyone involved, it was a really enjoyable event.  I especially loved the the many older warships out on the water.  There is now a photo of my Skirmisher with an official 'Model Boat Mayhem' watermark.  I am honoured !  See you all next year.

As every year, many thanks go to Martin, and all those involved in putting together one of the soggiest Wicksteed meetings yet. Shame about today, but yesterday was absolutely brilliant.

Cheers guys and girls, great to see you all again :-))

                                               THANK YOU EVERYONE!
I had an absolutely brilliant time at my first Mayhem and look forward to many more opportunities to make the Straight Running Chairman look bad. Tee hee! You made me feel really welcome and the nightcaps and barbeques all went to making it so much fun. Can't wait to do it again soon....
