The Hood is the Graupner RTR Richard and very impressive it is. Belongs to our Chairman who appears to have a navy larger than the RN.

What are you on about Danny ?

Pacific Buccaneer owned by  Ray Hellicar; dont know if he wants to sell it.

Not sure on the scale, about the same as the aziz I would think.

Not keeping to bad Jay, nothing happening on Kens build this week as he's having a week off.

What a week off I had. Weather was outstanding


I called in on the Setley meeting and here a few shots of Dicky D and his boats. What a superb lake. Very calm and flat, with easy launching at the water's edge.

The Solent Model Boat Club club gave me a lovely welcome and I enjoyed my visit tremendously. Dicky even let me drive his boat.   No ---  I didn't sink it.  %)

A trip afterwards to the RNLI at Lymington.  They had just returned from a mission and were washing down the RIB.

I bought a few things from their shop and had a chat with them. Great bunch of guys.

Glad you enjoyed your week down here Ken. It was great to meet you face to face.

The boat that wouldn't go I put on the bench, connected the battery and xstals switched on, yes it ran fine. >>:-( >>:-(

Perhaps the hot weather got to it.     %)    Wiring glich maybe.

Thanks for the welcome. I had a lovely time. Now you know where we went afterwards.  :}

I've bought the toy Severn and the original 'Severn' drawings from the RNLI ( 18) and not forgetting some little lifeboat men. My next project eh !!  can't wait.

Yet again another beautiful Sunday morning. A lot of the photos did not come out to well because of the glare of the sun off the water.

We could also do with a lot of rain as the pond level is very low at the moment.

Thanks, you two.

You will of course have noticed the two new boats on their maiden voyage Ken.

Also a bit more water since you were there Ken, it's now both sides of the car park.

25 degrees C and sunny, light breeze what more do you need at the lake apart from boats.

Quit a lot of boats on the lake today plus the usual visitors and the obligatory salvage of the torpedo boat that collided flat out with a bouy and flipped. It was recovered intact which is unusual on our lake as no one has found the bottom of it yet.

Brilliant Richard!

Lovely pictures as always, a really nice selection you get at Setley, here at Eastbourne you're lucky if you see anything other than a large selection of Torpedo boats. Although I will post some pics up later of what was a beautiful day today, they will be nothing compared to what you've shown us here! Marine Modelling at its best.

Post by: vintagent on May 23, 2010, 09:36:58 PM
I'm inclined to agree. That is a remarkable selection.  At our local pond when I've rarely been it's been a boring succession of Billings ocean tugs and cargo ships with the odd battleship of three feet bobbing around like a cork and being driven like a demented duck!

I would happily spend a morning at Setley with a flask and a box of sarnies just enjoying the action and variety.
Thanks for the pictures.
