Mississippi springer name "Kormorán"

My greeting for everybody.

This is a very good game.
I built it up already a paddle wheel springert, but my favourites Mississippi steamers.
Now yet only the boiler, the steam engine, and the deck part of the ship is made, but it is the turn of the body soon.
Till then, some pictures from the previous.
His name, "Pelican" :)







The earliest one onto seeing on the other hand.

There's certainly some interesting stuff there Papa.  I'd particularly like to see a bit more of the steam plant you have put together and how it connects to the paddles.

I live on a Hungarian country, in a small town on the banks of the Danube.
I learned very much since I am looking at this forum the springerekről, from arks, steam engines.
I would like to say thanks for this with this topic.

At the same time, I would like to present our little community, who all of them are springer fans.
The community's name, pusher liking his friendly circle.
"Tolóhajó Kedvelők Baráti Köre" :)
We live on Hungary's most different places, and we keep the contact through the internet only.
We manage to sail however, the result of which, a new competition are Latvian at us, jointly sometimes.
Our first competition will be tomorrow just.

I promise to put photographs up from this direction.
With a greeting,
 Elf Daddy.  :)

My greeting for everybody.

Than I promised it, I put a picture up from our yesterday's competition.


This is the friendly circle.
The day was rainy vainly, this did not show on the mood.





This friend of ours is his most beautiful pusher," Csongrád".  :)



Not springer, but nobody would tell this.

Beautiful day for everybody.

Interesting stuff and with a Springer pub on a barge.  Worthy of a European Springer Championships venue. Keep the pictures coming.

Nice pictures, pity about the rain - but that's the fun of model boats  {-)

Glad to see a high proportion of youngsters in your group.  O0

All the best

Burns unfortunately at us few people model, and what is really offensive, it it, that the work the domestic modeller deals with ships unkindly society, though this a very good game.
We decided that we popularize it at home because of this the springers. ;)
It is possible to infect the children the most easily, and moreover the springer ship that a beginner is able to build with a little help.
The fantasy may come if the floating body is ready already.
I am glad about this forum because of this because there are very many pictures where the fantasy is the essence.
My sons like to look at the pictures, but the rest of the children stare when we teach them, what you build up how.

I welcome everybody from here from the forum.

I am sure we all agree with your sentiments Papa. Keep spreading the word , perhaps your youngsters will change society through constructive play. Too much badness in this world is caused by youth who say they have "nothing to do" or "I`m bored".   There is an  old saying " The devil finds work for idle hands".  Where exactly in the world are you, city, town etc.?

I live on Hungary, on Ráckeve. This a little city from Budapest to the south on the coast of Danube.
In the summer time, with the children all Fridays we sailed jointly in order for them to take a liking to it in the evening.
Many children, took a liking to the modeling in this manner.



Initially, only little cane raft, I built a ship with them already later.



He is my wife.







They are the children, who may have tried this game, though.









All the best
