Model Slipway Tenby
« on: February 04, 2009, 06:28:24 PM »

Just a few photos of the Model Slipway Tenby that I knocked together whilst I was waiting for bits for my Milford Star.
Jay had already made a start on it when I bought it off him.

Had to abandon Milford Star maiden voyage as the wind tried to make her fall over and she shipped a lot of water. >>:-(

Handling wasn't to bad with the Tenby.

Nice to see it on the water Richard  :-))

Certainly looks the part job well done.

If it floats I'll  build it, if it sinks its a sub either way its in the water so I'm content.

She looks great, Richard. Well done.

I was looking closely at the 2nd. photograph when I realised what was puzzling me! The water droplets do not of course perform to scale. Damn!

Hi Richard,

Great pics of the Tenby

Sorry to hear it wasn't so good for your Milford Star, I'm looking forward to seeing pics of her on the water.
