Have this one on the go right now. Nice Pressie for the Birthday from the father.


Hope to have a smoke Genny installed once I figure out the wiring as I need to have it the fan wired to the throttle to produce smoke once the throttle is raised. Every thing is placed right not and not glues expect for the wooden bow plate.

"Dirty British coaster with a salt-caked smokestack

Butting up the Channel in the Mad March days

With a cargo of Tyne Coal

Road rails Pig iron

Firewood, ironware and cheap tin trays"

Super little ship, George and deserving of a nicer verse than John M's famous verse quoted above!

If ye're in Lockdown, ye can get on wi' yon  "Quinquireme of Nineveh"

Quinquireme of Nineveh from distant Ophir,
Rowing home to haven in sunny Palestine,
With a cargo of ivory,
And apes and peacocks,
Sandalwood, cedarwood, and sweet white wine

Quick, I hear some of this stuff can still be found in Sainsburys...

While the sweep up the bits of the motors in Silverstone here is a short Vid from this am of My Talacre is Action in Slow motion.

Just discovered the transmitter Antenna was frayed on my Transmitter so obviously contributed to my Albatros crash last year. 6cm bit of wire :/

Would you believe a RC shop in  Dublin does a spare!! Wow!
