Hi All
« on: August 22, 2014, 11:23:51 AM »

I'm Tony, I'm new to the forum.
Since retirement I'm now able to enjoy model boat sailing and am now a member of my local club (South Manchester MBC) - a very pleasant group of people they are too - At the moment I have a Joysway Explorer and am enjoying sailing that. Also I've just started building an Aero-naut 'Classic' as Im also interested in scale models (I know the classic is only semi-scale, but it will provide a simple way of getting back to model building) Once it's built I'll post a photo for you to comment on  :} . My main hobby is photography (I was in the Photography & X-Ray sales & distribution industry all my working life) Mostly I use Leica cameras - any other Leica users & boat builders out there?
Regards
Tony

Yes will do! so far I've got the hull planking in place and the glue is drying as I write - once it's dry and sanded down a bit (to make it look nice  ;) ) I'll post a photo.
