Very nice Ivor.
Well worth all the effort and she looks really good on the water.
It is always nice to follow a build and then to see it on the water.
You have done a great job.
Well done.

If you're not going to build any more I'd go into the refurbishment side of things and start adding features and upgrades to your existing fleet.

Born from necessity swab , its surprising how far a pair of pillowcases can go when recycled as sails for models  Thumbup

Looking forward to Sunday as my fellow club member who advises me on sailing craft could not make it sadly , but I sent him some photo's and made a few alterations , to the rigging [ which was jury rigged Embarassed] and so all being well he will be able to attend this week and check her out himself .

One of the benefits of the current period being that you can send images of your progress to each other and he being an Apple man helps even more bless him [ but dont tell him that or he may start charging me affraid.....

See what you think ............Grand Banks Schooner . - Page 2 Bb9f2b10

Hi Ivor,
Your schooner really looks the business.
I hope with the rigging tweaks that you have done she sail to your liking.

Well my college was there today and we quickly knocked up a list of things to be changed but all positive comments .

Nice to see Barrie there and his models as always performed well and displayed to the delight of all present 2thumbsup

So this week will involve a few tweaks and the purchase and fitting of a servo morph from component to stretch the travel on the arm of the servo to the place I need it to be at and at the price charged is a good investment as the one I fitted in the Pellew was removed from another sailing model .

hope the attached display her favourably EmbarassedGrand Banks Schooner . - Page 2 B45a3610

Hi Ivor,
There looks as if there was very little wind.
But she does look good.

Will you be posting some photos of the changes as you go.

Martin.
