  OK in a double-ended X2 size...ah, well maybe not.  Nice bit of craftsmanship in wheel-house.    BTW I`ve had major meltdown of computer,hence silence. More MacS lids and a hull for Sprinkler(with spare lid for it of course !)

Well done again Hanna.

My Springer is the Fire / Playmobil red Springer on the left....... finished it 12:30AM Friday night before the Mayhem Weekend!
She was a bit slow in open water like most of them...except Bradders 'Greyhound' Springe!  :o
Mine worked supprising well against a load and didn't sink despite shipping 2 pints of water!   >:(
Must fit a comming or some sort of seal....  ::)

Here is my  UNSINKABLE springer having a go at the Bouy.

I spent so long on the hull side of things, there wan't any time left for a detailed deck and cabin.

Should have something nicer next time.


Cheers...Ken

My springer is in bits at the moment, puting in smaller motor in (380 instead of 450), but could have it fixed by the show. Might see if SWMBO fancys a day out.

Er chingdevil,
Putting in a SMALLER motor?

Does this mean that mine will be suffering from over kill with Two 700bb turbo's in it, and sixteen cells !

It seamed a shame to just fit ballast to get it down to the water line.
And yes, like my Club 500, it has foils under the hull.  ;D

I want to get a bit more control over it and try to slow down the diving, if the motor does not work then it will be a new prop. I want to use this springer to play football and then build a 1:12th scale one, seen the one I want to build just cant get the company who makes it to send me some measurements of it.

I don't even drink the stuff far less work for them ! I liked the hi-viz orange near scale colour scheme. I`ve tried to keep the topsides as light as I could using 3/16 balsa. The crane is from a discarded toy, cargo will be a couple of plastic 35mm slide boxes to represent containers.

Brilliant!   (  can you make the eyes light up red when the motor runs?!?! )

Make sure you hatch is watertight and use the batteries to balance the boat fore & aft.

Now that would be an Idea... Maybe the theme from Captain Pugwash & the Black Pig,,

I do like that idea with the Lights in the eyes...

I'll keep in touch as I progress with the little beasty..
