You Troll Dodgy Good to see a working example of all your hard work, some more history ressurected from oblivion.

Sent a PM Russell, hope to have some answers back, lurved how close the lad got to his fingers with the circular saw, ONLY way to teach 'em, life sucks sometimes.

Also brought back vivid memories of local park and hanging over the side to launch/catch 50 odd years ago (bog off Keven)

Regards Ian.

And while I'm about it, I see that I haven't announced here that the last set of EeZeBilt lines, for the MERMAID, are now up on the EeZeBilt web site: http://eezebilt.co.vu/Mermaid.html . Download them and complete your collection... then give them to your kids to make.

Can I use my cliche about 'watching the EeZeBild designs cast their magic over a new generation'? I've used it on three sites so far today, and I think I might patent it...

Congratulations to Russell for a very professional video (I love the fades!) and Best Wishes to his son for a happy future in boat modelling - will there be a little 2.4ghz radio in his Christmas stocking...?

The mini 2,4s would certainly allow some "Flight" luggage for Holiday playtime.

I do remember building my fair share of balsa and tissue planes, way back when, and a good many of them were Keil Kraft products, my older brother built a boat or two, if I remember correctly.
Anyway, Dodgy and the others, who have now made it possible, for us and our kids to build and enjoy one of these hobby classics again, deserve a big thank you!
I just got back from the craft store with some balsa, and also got some of the plans printed.
They are a little larger than the standard, the Terrier will be about 14", the Cresta is around 21"-22" and the Neptune at a wopping 24", all the wood and printing cost about $12. As soon as I complete my current project, one of these will be built.
Thanks again for making these great plans available to us.

Not really me - I just provided an old P3 sitting in the attic.

It's the assembled multitudes of modellers round the word, from the UK, South Africa, Canada, New Zealand and elsewhere who have gone to their collections and scanned in the data, and all the others providing support and advice - in a word, all of you, who should take a vote of thanks. You have managed to save this little bit of history - I just put it in a box and tied a ribbon round it....
