not often a beauty like this comes up .........but not for the faint hearted.....remember a vicar building this over about a 100 or more months in model boats some years ago.


kept me buying the magazine for years and inspired me to go and have a visit to the ship in Bristol.

 You can always reduce the price but not put it up in retrospect....!
 If someone really wants it, they'll snatch your hand off, and you laughing all the way to the bank.
 
   Looking on 'Crowd Funding sites, it's called a "stretch goal".

Oh that Paddler is so tempting, always fancied adding one to the fleet. I tried for many years to get someone to sell me his model of the P.S Ryde but he just wouldn't let it go.

While having a sneaky liking for bikes, I gave up on them after getting a four wheel license.  Bikes tend to be cold and draughty and it hurts when you come off.
I got my domestic music device about 1973 from Laskeys in Preston.  Garrard must have built well - its on its third pickup and its second drive belt.  Apart from the tangential arm, nothing flash - it simply works well.

Hey Malcolm,  i used to work for Laskeys 'back in the day', in the repair workshop in Burnt Oak, Edgware.

I used to work for Granada Rentals,  Sure they owned Laskys in the late 80's/

I'm surprised this model Hydrofoil hasn't gone, nothing to do with me but it's been listed for a few days now and just had the price reduced.

If only I didn't have so many projects...
