This week saw Bob's Great Eastern Adventure reach its final stage.
As you all know The Great Eastern laid the first telegraph cable across the Atlantic and when the BBC program
"Coast" decided to renew the program again this year they decided to re-enact the cable laying, so through the Model Boats magazine, contacted Bob has they knew from earlier Threads that he had a Great Eastern Model.
After numerous e-mails and phone calls it finally came to this
Here are some of the pictures from the long tiring, but happy day Bob had at Hoylake Lake, you might recognise some of the stars of the program!.
The BEEB crew
Bob and Mark Horton discussing the various features of the model.
Hoylake, nice site and good weather what more could Bob and the Beeb ask for!
Bob,In his element and the water!
Mark getting closer.
The Hoylake members, who were very helpful all day, made their appearance with JAWS!..................Nice one, boys!
Jonathan Hare of the Coast team watches GE make an impressive start!
And it worked with a good signal at the other end!
And Bob did his bit for the club with his advertising, doesn't miss a trick with the detail does he!
If you enjoyed this why not look at the full thread on Model Boats, don't think there have been many threads with 9,800 views , Nice one Bob, how do you follow that.
Only hope you are going to take Jeanie Deans at War to the Warship Day, so other newer members can see your other efforts!!
Don't forget to watch out for the program on the telly !
