Right then Some Member or club on here has an actual Mold for a seaplane tender st200 that Neil from Fleetwood made and actually he gave not only the Mold of the hull but also the cabin and deck molds as well to Steve Tranter Model boat bits.


Now I know this for a FACT simply because Steve himself told me that He had Sold not only the Mold but also 6 of the Hulls that Neil had laid up as well....all he can remember is that the chap who bought them was not only a member on here but also he said they were ideal for the Kids to use at their club open days etc...Now does ANYONE know where this Mold's whereabouts is as I would Like to Purchase either the Mold or a Hull.
Possibly in the midlands area as This Chap only Lived around an Hour form Telford where Steve used to live


Thanks

VERY INTERESTING.  I wonder if the full set of moulds still exist?  I have the full set of Pilborough histories, and was subscriber no 87 on first publication. at 112 it would be a lovely relatively simple model.  Perhaps someone will confess !
Cheers

Dave, did you contact Steve Tranter? He did have them at one time - I'm sure he told me that.
I'm starting to build the next model up at 41 inches long , but the plans arent as good as the St 206 (for me)
