Bit late coming in on this, and my first post for a while, but…


Can I just point out to the people put off by the 'battle' idea a couple of things. As already said, it would be a tiny portion of the weekend, it'd be a bit like saying you're not going to the Warwick show, because for 15 minutes they've got a model car ferry on the pond and you only like tugs  or something.


My 2nd point, will be quite harsh. Sadly, model boating has an image of old me sat in stripy deck chairs and knotted handkerchiefs, counting the rivets go by. As the members get old and die, the hobby is dying with it. Sailing scale models at a scale speed in a big circle, isn't really going to capture the imagination of the young, and inspire them. Something that's A: cheap, B: relatively easy to build, and C: is actually lively and fun to use when it is done, may well just encourage them to then make something else, and something after that etc…

Hmmmm that's a thought. ......
If we could get 10 springer kits together then we could do demo builds by different people over the weekend.  Any takers??

Perhaps smaller scale springers and perhaps give away a printed sheet of templates so they can take something away, and for a few pounds get some balsa and some non toxic covering (Deluxe materials resin).

If a pair of tights were used instead of glass cloth/matt then this might add some hilarity to the proceedings and may encourage Mum to be less negative about 'Little Terry or Megan' making a mess.

Maybe even do the builds on a newspaper covered surface so showing reluctant Mum that boats and other things can be built on the dinner table without being messy. Is the springer design a liscensed one?
