May Bank Holiday weekend 2013.

The May Bank Holiday weekend got off to a good start with the fiesta racing on the Sunday morning, by Sunday evening I had the results from the Fiesta Sec as follows.

Fiesta Report 5/5/13

Hi to all
Weather much better this month, even had wind.
We had twelve  races in all, weather OK.
Five turned up to race. We had 12 races in all, had a good day's racing.
All we need now is more to come and race.

Trevor Redford came  1st, Terry Miles 2nd, Richard Hemingway 3rd, Bob Dunkey 4th, David Lee 5th.

See you all next month.

David Lee. 

Thanks for that Dave, as you say it's a shame more don't turn up for a try, there again perhaps some were away for the long weekend!.

Whilst on about Dave, here is a video of his American battleship taken after the Fiesta racing was over.

Then it was the turn of Terry Burnett's "Black Widow"
The details for this superb build were on an earlier post if you want to see the details of this build

On the Monday bank Holiday, whilst I was at the lake, had a drink with Colin and his wife at the Cafe then it was on to the landing stage for a chat with Eric and to see Gordon Longworth's latest build, Graupner's paddle tug "Glasgow" 


This is a very nice clean build. 

I've been following Bob Abell's build of this kit at his home and on the Model Boat Magazine Forum.

If you want to see this build from scratch go to
to see Bob Abell's build, there have been 15,000+ hit's on his forum thread, his build and comments whilst building this kit are quite entertaining.

Well that's it for the Bank Holiday weekend, I hope you have found something of interest on this Holiday post!.
Don't forget its the Club meeting this Wednesday, early this month.

  1. Hello Duckie

    Another interesting post, especially the videos!
    They must take some sorting out

    Had an idea!
    Perhaps you should explain how to make a comment
    The Profile is probably the problem?
