Toes,
Those are some great and realistic light bars, look just like the one on my work car. I think I am going for the basic light bar, (going to remove it from my Robbe harbor launch).
Woody,
The knees are next, along with some handrails.

Steve,

Are you going to use mini Dunkin Donuts as side fenders (tires) on that police tug?

Very nice, SRY! I think we need to come up with a map of the world and show all of the countries that have "Springer-itus"!

Ah, Toyota must have redesigned it for 2008? Always thought the matrix would make a good choice for a boat hauler...

can you land on that ?
Well done SRY, two aircraft rescues, excellent ! Are you the first Springer builder in Hungary ? I wonder if the bulwark (wall) round the stern would be better at the front(bow) to stop water coming over the deck when you get more power. Nice barge too.

Welcome SRY

And what a fantastic first (i think) Springer from Hungary

Whats the reasoning behind the 'scale'?... Its not half scale or 2/3rds...

All of the running gear is back in the hull.. prop shaft lubed and tested..

Just a quick test in the domestic test tank facility later for water line and any 'issues'... and then its a 'charge' ready for the appartment complex test facility tomorrow..

Let the 'Hunt' begin...

I confused
The tub/bucket/superstructure fits inside the hole in the deck that is surrounded by the coaming. The skirt covers the coaming and sits on the deck. Scooter also got a new handbag to go with the skirt. Kinda like this…

Ahhh haaaaa..
Thanks WoodyBob, that explains it... three layers, an outer, an inner and a spacer layer...

Not sure about the handbag though... that might raise a few eyebrows at the pool.

Yep, so many layers, so many parts that could have been glued together. Whew... It's a very tight fit, I hope that when it gets wet I'll be able to pull the plug.

As if your new Springers haven't raised a few eyebrows.

It's a manly handbag. Klein. Not Calvin.
