Yep. Just been looking that up Martin - seems he auctioned his layout off a while back. He champions other causes now, including railway apprenticeships.
Plenty info about that and other projects via Google  :-))
Regards
Ray.

Isn't Pete Waterman a big model railway fan?

Ive been given the soldering iron thats in the pic, it seems to have the heating element running through the inside which can be removed, theres no wire attached but has three stand up posts to connect some wire, can any one shed a little light on the tool for me, such as what wire to buy to connect and which posts to wire up. also would the iron be suitable to assist in the lighting of model boats..

All plans are in place, yet to to be tested though. currant speed on a straight line trial this sunday was average 4 mph, she carries two 12V batteries, one for the power, the other helps with ballast, but once battery 1 runs down the 2nd will be connected up to carry on, bit like having a quick pit stop. ;)

hi there


I have just checked on the type 42 which is at 1:96 scale - and - the boot topping width is approximately 18 mm and this comes from the Jacobin plans so you will be able to scale it up :-)


Capt Podge is right about an optical illusion as what you need to take into account is the flare of the bow and the radius of the stern.


If you levelled off the hull correctly and use a marker gauge to draw two parallel lines along the length of the hull, you will see the band width will increase in width at the bow and at the stern and you will find that the inner part of the boot will radius right in towards the keel which will give you the illusion of the thicker boot topping.

It's a sign of the times that the default position is too assume the worst.  It's a lot of money for a small club to suddenly receive One can only hope that they keep their heads.  I would hope that they will donate a fair amount to the charities that the Club normally supports and just retain what they need.  The original amount was 500 which was about what they had expected to raise from the show.  Some payments to members and guests who lost expensive items, perhaps.

Apparently Rod Stewart, a noted railway modeller himself, donated 10k.Colin

He has "pledged" 10,000 and he's trying to get Jools Holland and Roger Daltrey to do the same.  They are also keen train modellers.  Jools Hollands layout was featured in Railway Modeller and Continental Modeller a couple of months back.

I wonder if he knows where the money is going - or just as importantly where it isn't.
I think of some of the clubs around here (& their committees) & I find it difficult to imagine they would cope with all this. Once a lot of money is involved the climate changes very quickly.
