Alan's latest build.

Now the excitement of Ellesmere has died down I will share with you an email I received from our new Commodore Alan Breese a couple of weeks ago.

Just ballasting my latest effort the german raider atlantis. in the pond in the garden. this has been one of my longest builds
 Alan.

Not sure if he means longest in time or length, I asked him for some more details for you and here they are.
Duckie

The length 61 ins aol by 9in beam, powered by a motor from an electric drill, will use 6v for reasonable speed,also found a website in Germany that do tee-shirts and memorabilia of 2nd ww kriegsmarine vessels.
Her proper title is Hilfskreuzer Shiff 16. Atlantis formally Goldenfels she was sunk in 1941 by HMS Devonshire.
see you in my tee-shirt?.
Alan.

That's looking like your usual expert builds Alan, but perhaps it would be better if you got a tee-shirt of the HMS Devonshire that sank her, don't you think guys!.
Perhaps Roy cragg has a model of the Devonshire so we could have a re-enactment hey.
Perhaps another Warship day as well to suit all all our grey boat guys!.

Now on to the next DO at the club which will be on the 26th of this month its one of our Phil's famous Quizzes, followed with one of Mike's Hot Pot suppers, which I'm sure the older members will all be aware of how good they are, judging by the numbers on these nights.
Another reminder nearer the time so you don't forget hey.

  1. Well done, Alan, nice model.....As usual
    It`s a shame, the club members don`t use this blog, more often, to stay in touch and swap stories etc
    Put something on the notice board, to that effect?

  2. It's the same as the Model Boat Magazine forum Bob, plenty of viewers but people don't want to get involved!.
