Hi all, I came across this looking for model yachts.  Seems to have been sold

https://www.pinterest.co.uk/pin/808818414310432860/

This is labelled as a yacht from 1910?  Looks rather more modern to me.

Possably 1910 was the time the model was made rather than 1910 CE (politicaly correrct)

  Just missed this...https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Model-wooden-Submarine-rubber-band-power/333583155586?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&_trksid=p2060353.m1438.l2649  ...and that really is a bargain. A Glenbur rubber-powered sub from 1949 or 1950. The rudder has been broken off, but it's worth a lot more than 8.50.

I was looking at that also!  Lots of stuff on eBay at moment ....ironically collection only so a very big wait I guess.  I don't know how they get away with it at moment.

For those who wanted HFM pilot boats there is one listed at the moment. Supposedly (and looks very convincingly) the Model Boats magazine article boat (was it built but a guy called Phil?). I'd take it as a second model to match mine but no postage and auction only, but it's out there if you fancy it while there's no offers of new mouldings yet!


See if this works. Phone isn't good at copying weblinks....

...yes it works! Needs a bit of repair and a hemaroid operation but a good base.

I am presently going through my loft  - supposedly tidying up and sorting through bits, when I came across two model boats magazines, 1 from 1980 and the other June 1982, both had various items I was interested in like what got me into model boats with a letter to the editor over the fitting out of a flower class corvette, which I subsequently did when I bought one in 1982, the other was for a 67 foot MTB, (I still have the plans for it and several gliders that came from my father who worked with someone who didn't want them), whilst looking through the mag - as you do, I saw a glenbur sub - point being, funny old world init.
