Smiffy,

for the price of photocopying and postage (probably under a fiver) I can provide a copy of the plan of 'Sea Rider' which came into my possesion quite recently. If you are interested PM me your address etc and I will arrange it.

Modesty ought to prevent me suggesting the "Paladin" plan, published in the Oct 05 issue of Model Boats and plan (MAG 2025) available through the "My Hobby Stores".
It was designed to make a simple and cheap entry model, perhaps idea for your Father/Son project?

Thanks for that Glynn, I've had a look at Paladin and if I can't get the sea rider I think I'll have a go at it.

hi there

have you had a look in the build Masterclass at the plan for beginners - although this isnt a warship plan - it is a very easy to build sports model.

Very few tools required; it is great project and I can envisage it being an excellent family build  :-))   If you are interested FLJ who is a member of this forum will supply the plans for approx 5-6 plus postage  :-))

Also, if you hit any snags in the build you know who to contact.

No doubt the same, if you pick one of Glynn's plans - that could be one of the plans chosen for a future build mmmm food for thought.

One last thing, I do wish the moderators would change the Masterclass heading - as I know it puts a lot of people off looking into that section of the Forum.    I don't think any of us should be put under the title of Masters - we are all here to help one another and builders are what we is.

Thanks John, you right about the masterclass section - I took one look at the title and thought "woah - out of my depth". I've had a look at it and its really good - loads of usefull stuff in it - future build me thinks O0

I made Paladin a couple or three years ago at the St Albans Model show. 90% complete in 2 8 hour days. Took it home painted it and took it done the lake two weeks later! Had a jr perkins 380 motor with a 30mm prop running on 6 volt 1.2amp battery. went like stink and was called a menace. Since then every time I put her on the water everyone vacates the lake!!!
I have had it 80% submerged while running parallel with a Happy Hunter, have taken out the main gun on flower class corvette, broadsided a small tug, been sunk twice by the Happy hunter with no damage to the boat.
The only damage that was done to the Paladin was when doing a small overhaul on the motor and I dropped it and smashed the whole of one sided, so she is now in dry dock being repaired, weighed down with a new bottom hull, side and a new johnson motor. (yes you saw it correctly!). Sea trials will begin soon!!!

Good programme - thanks for the heads up.

You have to take your hat off to the rescue services - all credit to them.

But none to the Government who are continually looking for savings.

BBC news on Staurday night showed a film clip of one of the 2 Iranian "warships" transitting the Suez Canal.
The clip showed the IRS "Kharg". A direct "copy" of an RFA "OL" class tanker....except the Kharg was built as a "One Stop" ship (the "Ols" were almost totally liquid re-fuellers). She has a double hangar and is more heavily armed than an RFA. She was also built to an extremely high standard.
When she was being built it was proposed to have her at the centre of the then Persian navy Logistics section with the shore back-up and facilities built along the lines of ours.....but things changed.
I've spent ages in the past searching the coastline of Iran trying to find her base port without any success. In a way, it's nice to see her still fulfilling her role....but although "armed" I wouldn't exactly describe her as a "warship"!

The sub is played by an ex USN boat the "Tilefish" a Balao Class.  At the time of filming she was in service in the Venezuelan Navy as the "ARV Carite (S-11).

Should have kept her original name
Felicity Anne Bragg.

Used to see her in Northwood Middlesex

road from the two houses used for the Goode Life

  Still a stunner. The Kendal family were strolling players in India. See Shakespeare Wallah. Her sister Jennifer married Shashi Kapoor, one of the Bollywood greats, and was hugely popular in India.

Hi, anyone interested in scale sailing boats might like to try
www.classicyacht.tv
It is on line and has HD picture definition, so you watch from your PC etc.  Currently has a good video of the Schooner Marriette with the first mate telling you about running the boat and some great film of the boat in action.

I think the content is changed monthly.

regards to all, Roy

Something actually worthwhile on TV or Radio...

Those of you with access to the BBC IPlayer should check out this extraordinary BBC4 documentary which is a compilation of film coverage from Edwardian times until the latter part of the 20th Century loosely based on the British Coast. There is no commentary, just a haunting sound track from 'British Sea Power'. I found it absolutely fascinating, there are some wonderful shots of old time ships and the people who made and crewed them.
http://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episode/b01nyz3p/Storyville_20122013_From_the_Sea_to_the_Land_Beyond_Britains_Coast_on_Film/

Definitely recommended.
