Title: Mount fleet Clyde Puffer
Post by: granpal on October 05, 2007, 04:29:11 AM
 O0 Have Just finished my Clyde Puffer, "Jessie Ann". Am now looking for new project for the winter months, that is after I finally finish my grandaughter's doll house (roofing).

Excellent!!!  O0 Great colour scheme.

Couple of questions, what motor? How much ballast?

Very nicely done model there.  Nice detail, just the right amount of weathering and I bet she looks great on the water.

Thanks for the compliments. The motor is a MFA 2:5-1 geared from Westbourne Model Shop. The bike was purchased from Mollys House Miniatures. com in the UK and the weathering was done using Doc O'Briens weathering which I bought from Micro-mark in the USA. I had intended on sailing her but a rather generous offer came my way to purchase the model and now I'll be looking for another from Mount Fleet. Perhaps the Britannia Pilot Boat or Sealight Puffer.
