A Mass of Springers
« on: January 15, 2009, 12:06:55 AM »

...Hi Guys...

Here is a wee picture of our latest project at Glasgow Richmond M.B.C nearing completion...

A new set of Hands-On Boats for the kids to play with...

Only another 2 to build when the good weather arrives & its a wee bit warmer to mould hulls...

              ...Hi Guys...

Thanks for the nice comments...I will pass them on to the guys at the club on Sunday...

The boats have their first outing at the Transport Museum in Glasgow on the weekend of 24th & 25th of January...
This is part of a Special Sails & Steam Show put on by the museum...The kids get to sail them round our portable pond...

I will post pictures of the event...

Excellent idea, Norry. They do look great.

The springer is my favourite model for Lake visits. You can do almost anything to them and they survive. ideal for introducing newcomers to our hobby.  Well done

Our club had 4 boats we could let the youngsters, and their parents, have a play with on our regular sailing days, but they were destroyed in our vandal attack. On event days, we make a small charge for their use to help club funds. However, new ones are built, and awaiting installation of radios to be operational. I believe it's something all clubs could consider.

Well done Norry, not only taking model boating out to the general non boating public, but hopefuly encourageing our future model boaters---------the youngsters.
Keep up the good work, I only hope I can do as well in the south, and of course they'll all be building springers  :-)) :-)) :-))

...Hi Duncan...

Its down to the Chandlers for a roll of Hatch Sealing Tape...That makes for good fendering...No Chipped Paint that we could see but plenty of Happy Wee Ones...Some of Them were just going back to the end of the Queue for another go...Whats that abouta Booking in September...

...Steamboatphil...
Its not just me, The Whole Club was involved in some part of the project...

...The Long Build...
One of our guys supplied the Motors & Speed Controllers, They were going just a wee bit on the Fast Side but with more fendering they should handle it OK...I will try to get you a picture of the inside of one of the boats...

Garage door seals works well as fendering...

Also, its a lot of work, but lego tyres can also keep the paint from getting chipped...

By the way Norry, excellent work on the Springers and also getting the youngsters involved!.. A+
