Hello all, that is definitely Duncans' Maid of Irn in the livery of Scotlands' other national drink, yes the ubiquitous Irn-bru made by Barr as the ad line goes Irn-Bru made from girders To think that he only took to Springers early last year and applied the practice of WOT which so typifies his other interest r/c air anad float planes.

cheers

Hello all, no, once again it is one of Duncans creations  ;) the use of a radside marker post cut down the length is all that makes the superstructure with a few embellishments. He'll  not be offended as he is one of the greatest practitioners of the Springer art form here in Scotland. Great chap with an insatiable appetite for getting out on the water or up in the air.

cheers

No that model was built as a response to Red Oktober... and
the video was a response to my launch posted earlier that same week...

                 ...Hi Guys...      "Och Aye The Noo"

Now theres an idea for Duncans Highland Springer Splash In...

By The Way..."RED OKTOBER" is not mine...It still belongs to Toesupwa in the U.S. of A....
I am only acting as chaperone for the Scottish part of her World Tour...Stavros is currently in charge of her as she visits North Wales this weekend, Then back to me for Duncans Doo in tHe Highlands...Then Blackpool in October. Then...Any Suggestions for further visits to shows...

...All The Best From Bonnie Scotland...Norry..."Hoots Mon"...

120 days since last post in this thread Oh Oh...time for an up-date.  The wonderin` tyke (it is Burns year) Red Oktober has escaped from the UK and is now en route ...wait for it, in la belle France.  Being a submarine, Red took a dive in the U-boat pens at Brest and liked it so much is going to try for another one or two on the Atlantic coast. Might have a rest in sunny Spain and has an appointment within the Arctic Circle. Any volunteers between Normandy and Norway who would like to participate in this little adventure let me know. Videos will be added to Red O`s own channel on youtube as it procedes round the world (we hope). The idea is like "By Any Means" or "Long Way Down" TV programmes except no funding from anybody like BBC.  Thanks to my one and only fan (tugs53)  for letting you know about MacSpringer`s vids on youtube.  The ice-breaking ones were fun to make.   BTW the "Umi launch" clip was one of Norry`s f/g hulls, the only one strong enough to be filled with bricks to make sure it went down in a "one-er". Four take before the published one, tough old hull, ta much Norry.  Check Umi`s classic launch on her vid to see it done par excellance...oops went all French again !

Thanks! :)

Seems it is just part of the upside down airfoil design of these truckable push tugs that when moving forward they get pulled down just like an upside down wing.  ;D

But mine has the horsepower to push the water all the way up to the top of the windshields.  cool
