Springers - The Rogues Gallery!
« on: June 01, 2008, 12:11:51 PM »

Martin,

How about a springer gallery of all the different springers that have been built, along with the name of the builder?

Good idea, a Springer Register.   "Standard" and "Super Springer". O0

This is my Springer. She was meant to be the The Fire Springer but after it's first 3 or 4 outings,
she's now named - Springer Leak!  >:(

My two are,on the left is Gazover and the Chopper is scratchbuilt around the windscreen which was plastic packaging.The rotors work via a micro switch switched on with the throw of the rudder arm.
The other tug is Gazunder (Gerry Springer! ),both Tugs wheelhouses are made from Ferero Rochere chocolate containers,the material is compatable with Styrene and uses the same Solvent.

Would this not be better if it was thumbnails that can be clicked on to enlarge so we dont use a lot posts for each pic ?  Police Gazette style or for our trans-Atlantic friends the Post Office "Most Wanted" posters.  Just to add to the list, a working camera boat(note the temoporary trim ,2 screw-drivers). How about it Ghosty, time you got some on-the-water shots !

Right here she is the one I should never have built it has cost a fortune since, and almost went over due to the amount of water she ships. But actually is rather fun. O0

I think a page of thumnails as you suggest, Arrow, is a good ide. If anyone see one they are particularly interested in, click it, opens in a new page with details.

What you think Martin?
