Welcome to my new Blog



Welcome to my Blog.
My Blog is mostly about my hobbies, ie Model boats,Cross Stitch, Gardening, Days out and about and Photography with pictures taken at and around our Model Boat club at Etherow Country Park, where I can be found quite a few days a week on the landing stage, you might recognize the hat and the dog rather than me. My models and other hobbies can be found in the tabs at the top above the header picture.
There will also be entries of days out with my long haired Chihuahua "Pepe", weather permitting of course.

More OL2 and other things


During the week I've fixed the rudder servo mount and servo in 

General view, showing the supports round the hull for the lower deck.

Linkage fitted.

Whilst I was still a novice boat builder I attended a Club talk and one of the members was talking about all the different linkage systems on the market, he then said he couldn't understand anyone using a bent bit of wire, my first kit was a Robbe yacht which stated "Bend a bit of wire to make the linkages"!, and that's what you do if you don't know any better isn't it.

As I've progressed in the modelling scene I now use the linkages that you see here, a bit dearer than a bit of bent wire but look better doesn't it.

I've also been looking at the net rollers as shown on the Model Slipway "detailed" section and seen the idea there for a better look on the net deck area, so first it was the net rollers.
This is the basic ends for the net drum supports, look a bit bare don't they?


 After a few bits added, including the rim round the middle circle.

Getting circles fixed on, and then will spray the drums with the ends off and then spray the ends separately, watch this space.

And other things
In the week with the weather not being too good Pepe and I have been going over to Debdale park which is nearer to home and we can walk there thus saving on petrol which though getting a bit cheaper at the moment is still dear!.
Whilst in Debdale I took these pictures,






The rain doesn't seem to have battered these blooms too much.

The last thing to go though a gnat's mind as it slams into a sports car going 100mph is its BUM!.

Boom Boom

That's all folks.
