« on: December 05, 2016, 05:14:57 PM »

Just found this while browsing Scottish museums - thought it might be of interest for anyone building a puffer. :-)

Yep, saw that one Derek - pity it couldn't have been in time lapse like the puffer one. Still interesting though. O0

A few..... [8].... of our older Scottish MBM members in their earlier years?  {-).....

The far wall appears to be lined with what I assume are Builders 1/2 Hulls........and probably all at one standard scale

These 1/2 hulls were used for lofting full size lines and plate expansion profiles in the Loft house................
