« Reply #1 on: May 29, 2017, 03:00:57 PM »

After this year's do.........the committee (is there a committee? ) are pleased to announce the dates for 2018.
26 -27 May 2018.

Come meet your fellow modellers and Forum members. Put names to faces and see who built what.
Can't promise good weather, but we can promise good company and lots of boats.

We propose a small theme for next year....
In honour of 2 well known boat builders, we would like to see some boats from Vic Smeed and Glynn Guest
All you have to do is build them! 

There will be a small prize for the best boat!

Hope to see you all there .........

Sir Klunk & Martin!

Just got my old Nexus/MAP plans book out... so many choices! :-))


I think this is a fantastic idea and I now have a third project between my two main ones. :-)


Let's see how many we can get for Mayhem at Wicksteed 2018. :-))

It does not have to be a new build.  This is a tribute to both men for their contributions to modelling.

Couple of questions Klunk;

1. Can it be a modified GG or VS design? (eg. bigger)
2. Have I read somewhere, that someone used a car type differential gearbox, with brakes,  to drive and steer a side-wheel paddle boat?!

 .... just thinking out loud...  %)

I think in the spirit of Mayhem it can be a modified design.
if you want to build it big enough to house that type of gear then be my guest, i will even help launch it!!!

Well hopefully we will have a lot of uptake on this. Both have given so much to model boating.

I'll be doing one as well, in spirit of the show and coming up with a good idea to get everyone building, hopefully everyone will take part.


Would having a separate topic be good so people can post there progress?

Hi ya Bri

I have just been through the thread for the RTTL build - I noticed half of the pics are missing at the end - no doubt this may be due to a wobbler that happened to Mayhem,.   I wonder if Martin can salvage some of the pics he may have them on backup disc somewhere - I don't keep build logs.   

If I can help though, I will.
