One pigeon did this to my car on Sunday, whilst driving at 60mph!

Must admit, damn pigeon made a perfect bombing run!

That pigeon ... after releasing that amount of a bomb load, it must have shot up 100 ft vertically!

One 2.2m HMS Agincourt, and I understand there could be several others.  Possibility of live gunfire between dreadnaughts.  Looking forward to seeing your Atlantis  :-)

Given the recent amount of interest in 'traditional' kits and cabin cruisers is is worth having a Convocation of Faireys or even cabin cruisers generally?

a Convocation of Faireys


I thought it was a model boat show not a dolls tea party  %) {-) {-)




note: off to look up what Convocation means  ok2


EDIT: Convocation:

noun
1. a large formal assembly of people, in particular:

2.
the action of calling people together for a large formal assembly

nice useable word is that, but seldom fits into my daily vocabulary...…….a little like "panache". Another word that I like immensely, but rarely get to use, especially when describing myself, lol. [thought I'd get that point in before Colin does  {-) {-) {-) ]

Well, Mayhem is a large assembly isn't it? Anyway, can't have the awful Rees Mogg having a monopoly on all the best words.
I do think a 'cabin cruiser' parade would be a good option even if some of them do have a rather sporty performance.

The late Alan Rayman (of my jolly old club.....celebrating 90 years...not me the club) built a model of that craft back in the 60's...
Meanwhile we (steamboat apprentice inc) will once again be glamping next year, and will finally have my flash steam radio controlled ( hummmmm) boat with me....clear lake please, because me and radio don't get on, knowing my luck this bl**dy thing will go straight  {-) {-) {-) {-) {-) {-)


What a time for a wedding......still I have heard the Mayhem is not only a great boating weekend but a perfect honeymoon spot.......just saying.... :}  north of the boarder lot !!!!!

yes, my mistake colin………..haven't looked at my book in years...….got it out this morning and realised after it was too late to change it that it was Gwen...…..a lovely boat....mind, there are some lovely boats in that book...…..my grand dad gave it to me at the age of 8 and it taught me a great deal in my early modelling life.
