MODEL BOATS OR NOT ?
« on: February 01, 2012, 12:42:40 PM »

Where have all the model boats and model boat builds gone ?

Its getting to the stage where the Model Boats forum is nearly more interesting than this one unless you are more interested in banking than boats.

Moaning rather than modelling,
Bitching rather than building,
Groaning rather than glueing,
Gripeing rather than getting on with something,
Sounds like one of our workshop nights!
 Surely misery makes the world go round, without the overly judgmental, how would us lesser beings now what we were and were not doing right?
Anyway, its Mayhem for me, just the right level of sarcasm mixed with knowledge, ask the right question and you are guaranteed at least half a dozen replies, the trick is using you twaddle filter to sort out what is good and what is not....
Long may It continue :-))

I think that a lot of the lads are frustrated  with the way things are at present. Although many posts are not boat related it does give us a chance to have our say. John.

See Neil its not just me.

I could say a lot about the running of the NHS but I would rather not bore any one.

I could carry on with my no smoking campaign, I dont think so.

I could go on about the reason for cruise liners running aground, done to death by others.

Or I could ramble on about the "xxxxx" running our banks and how they are robbing us, nothing new there, has been going on for years.

How about model boats, that would be novel.

There's lots of threads currently running, Richard. Only one is about banking and it's on a non-boat related board. You neither have to read it nor contribute if it doesn't interest you. For me it's a welcome respite from soldering and packing P80's. Believe it or not it is possible to have just too much 'model boats' in a day..................  8)

My point precisely, too many non-boat related board postings that go on and on and on.
Now be a good bloke and go back to earning a crust.

Yes Richard, we do attempt to stay on subject rather than acting as a GOM's Day Centre.  :}

Some lovely pics of a twin engine Imara steam plant posted today....

Nice one Howard, I find it hard to believe that the builds on here at present are the only ones being carried out by Mayhemmers.

Erm .... {:-{   ... OK chaps, it's a fair cop ! Actually I was waiting for someone far more experienced than me to do a build log of this one but as there doesn't appear to be one in the offing, I'll give it a go....  :embarrassed:

I've taken a few photos and I'll get something up, hopefully tomorrow , for your edification....  :D
