Mayhem is evil !
« on: November 21, 2011, 05:05:32 PM »

I cant believe how addictive model boats can be. I started out several weeks ago looking for a project/humbug gift for my 17 year old son and within a fortnight have completely handed my soul over to admin and his mayhem addict. %% %%

If he was to ever be seen out side a school selling model boats he would be shot, but on the internet he can get away with peddling his wares to all. :police: :police:

is there someform of witchcraft involved here, some form of computer screen mind hypnosis, smack laden keyboards, emails with secret subliminal messages. I was only looking for some thing to do as a one off. i have now spent three days working on a model boat plan and working out which parts of my anatomy are spare and how much i could get for them on flee bay. smutt absolute smutt.





Thanks admin, I love it here :-))

sorry forgot to introduce myself .

i am pete from smethwick west midlands, now struck down with model boat sickness. i was looking at buying a second hand boat off flee bay and me and the lad repairing it and them off for a play on the park pond.

now after reading or should i say been infected by admin the evil, we have decided to go the full hog and we are going to make a foam model cover it in fibreglass and fit our own set up inside it,  proberly a nice simple  set up and from there we can star the rehab.

the thing is once you start to play with the idea of a model boat and then start to read about bait boats and being a fisherman you start to have a NEED FOR A MODEL BOAT rather than a toy.[img][/img]

So what are the better alternatives to this addiction? --------- erm dunno  {:-{ ------ well whatever floats your boat lads  O0

I'm currently fixated on finding an image of Foundation Franklin when she was The Gustavo Ipland - it was that or find the Holy Grail.
I like a challenge so I picked the ship ...........  %%

PS if you are addicted to meeting nice people - well you won't find a better place to do it.

Aha!
Derek, your photos tell me you have a workshop, and lathes, and a mill, probably several micrometers and shim gauges.
I own a hacksaw but have lost the assembly instructions - will the Evil of Mayhem make me a proficient crafttsman and
free up the wife's dining table again?

Regards Dave

 <:( ...sorry Dave.......

no lathes....no mill.....no micrometers or shim gauge  :(( ...I do have a vernier calliper without the TV set in the corner O0...& can read it...& a couple of tube benders & a Proxxon saw & a great collection of other bits & pieces.... 8)

I have simply modified premanufactured components  :o :o

Here is my current workshop bench today for my soldering work
