Well Great Day for a Maiden Voyage ...............

Like most Maiden Voyages ....loads of Hick cups .....some damage and a lot of lessons learn't about your Model
Like you gang the club was very complimentary and helped me a lot with launch and recovery

She is looking good Ivor, mishaps always appen on sea trials but that is what sea trials are all about - find it , fix it and back on the water.

Looks like a "Wee Nip" yacht in pix 5 - am in the middle of building one now - oops, that has put "Britannia" on the back boiler YET again. Hakuna Matata - we will get there eeeeeeeeeeeeventually.

Took her down to the water and a few feet off the shoreline .....she was just another boat in the water ..............Perspective

Well the day started off will and slowly got worse
The hatch's that I had made for the lifts / access ..had buckled even though they were painted both sides ...so no hatches

to my surprise I managed to get all the kit and trolly into the Car .....got to the lake and the Ariel mast broke off the Island unit

I had decided to use the trolly mentioned in earlier posts due to her size .......not wanting to risk lifting her in case the weight of the batteries broke her back......that worked out fine and she entered the water at the right angle ............but as the trolly has no brakes on it ....it was a fight to hold on to it and gingerly cast her adrift

She handled beautifully and in spite of her size she turned very well with the much larger Rudder size ...and the fact that the ESC [Electronic Speed Control] reacts to rudder input and slows down/stops one prop and accelerates the other depending on how much rudder you give her

Retrieving her was easy with help from other modellers ...but un route back to the car there are some tree roots to engage where willing hands pulling..... and tree roots projecting ...met and the stern parted company with the trolly and bounced on her rudder whilst all the lead Acid batteries were still inboard

This won't happen a second time as I have now fitted "Cow Horns" to the trolly fore and aft ...and the batteries will be removed once ashore

She was in the water about two hours , and when I started stripping her back down found about half a cup full of water sloshing about
The oiling point for the prop shafts have rubber feed pipes fitted to them which finish well above water level ...so can't think that there was any water creep seeping up the shafts

Sorry about pictures but difficult to control boat / watch out for others and focus the camera all at the same time whilst giving the appearance of being cool calm and collected

For give my bad manners Robby ....look forward to receiving that detail



I was impressed at the turn of speed she managed and had to try hard to resist opening her up fully

Lets just say that at one point she was keeping up with some MCB patrol boats whizzing around the lake ....but she did not look very dignified going around at that speed

Thanks for the narrative Ivor - looks like sea trials went well until retrieving. Happens to us all mate. You may have taken that drop of oggin up the propshafts when going astern which is the usual problem - but then again the tiniest of leaks can be a bugger to find.

Nevertheless - good work.

Well as I recall, she had to have a 30knot wind over the flight deck to launch the aircraft, memory is a tad muddled after fifty five years, but I recall she did thirty something knots during the speed trials on the measured mile on the Clyde in Feb 1958.

One of the finest shots of her, sorry if it has been posted before.

You may have a point there Dave twice I had to take avoiding action to avoid fellow modelers not watching what they were doing
so emergency reverse

Yes maiden voyage, just a seahawk lifted on by crane to teach the baby wafoos how to handle them and two choppers for mail, unfortunately they crashed one of them and it killed one of the baby wafoos, with flying metal debris.

Ok Compromise just for Scouse ..................broken lines now .

Took the Fleet Air Arm out to see what I had and how they would look

They will all need to be sprayed in Fleet Air Arm colours and alterations made to each type .............so no change there Eh ....in keeping with the rest of the model ...........but hey all model makers must have a sadistic streak in them to take it up in the first place

Careful Scouse ..............people will think you are biased

She had twin 3" turrets I believe Scouse , but they are still on the "To Do " list one Port and Starboard forard and two Starboard one Port aft not sure about the gun Directors as these were American guns with a radar beside the Barrels on each turret

I'm afraid their Lordships will be most displeased to hear of the docking accident, and I expect that their will be much gold braid about to point fingers and chastise. CinC Home may well be involved. However, delighted to hear that your ship handled very well at sea and met the goals of first trials. Looks stunning on the water, and you must be very proud. BZ on that!

I'm sure the yard longshoremen will have many suggestions regarding better securing of the vessel when out of her element!

  HMS Medway was the first Royal navy submarine Depot ship that was designed for the purpose from the outset. She is shown here with a quintet of T-class submarines on her starboard side, whilst an elderly L-Class begins  to move away having completed replenishment. HMS Medway was sunk on 30th June 1940 having been torpedoed by U-372 off Alexandria.

HMS Medway by Ivan Berryman (P)
Half Price! - 450.00
The Atlantic ocean was the lifeline between Britain and America, as well as millions of tons of raw materials, GIs were also transported over in all manor of hastily converted liners.  Protecting the troops from marauding u-boats and German surface ships was of paramount importance to the allied fleets.  Although USS New York spent a good deal of the war in the Atlantic, she also participated in the Torch landings off North Africa and took part in the Pacific campaign, seeing action at both Iwo Jima and Okinowa.

HMS Resolution at Gibraltar by Ivan Berryman (P)
Half Price! - 2700.00
Germanys U-boat fleet had almost brought Britain to its knees in the First World war, twenty years later the story was very similar. the German U-boat arm came perilously close to cutting the lifeline that crossed the Atlantic between North America and Britain. in the early years of the war Donitz realised that keeping his U-boats at sea for as long as possible would greatly increase their chances of success. here U-93 (left) and U-94 take fuel from the auxiliary cruiser Kormoran whilst in the mid-Atlantic during 1941

Dawn Rendezvous by Anthony Saunders (P)
