SC Paddle Store

Pushing card/paper modeling:

Built for the display table at tonight’s
Ship Modelers Association meeting.

Printed on Wausau Exact Vellum Bristol 67 LB and given a protective coat of Krylon acrylic gloss.

Cardboard added to base.

Testors gloss enamel applied to windows.

Paddles made from glossy card stock mailer and painted with enamels.

This was built taking no extra steps other than those mentioned. Burnishing the planking edges and roof shingles prior to cut out would help enhance the model.

Front 6 inches, length 6 3/4 inches, 3 inches high.

Nice one. I made that model a few years ago. It was a great hit. I have no idea where it got off too. It kind of walked out on its own.

I wonder how Zippy is doing these days.

Nicely done, sir

SC Paddle Store

Vermin King,
There were smiles and photographs taken of the SC Paddle Store.

I gave this talk copied from the Internet:

This phrase may have come from England's Haslar Creek in Portsmouth harbour, a 'salt' creek. (It may also be the origin of the alternative 'up s*** creek'.) Wounded sailors during the time of Admiral Horatio Lord Nelson (1771–1805), were taken there to be transported to the Royal Naval Hospital in Haslar to die or recover. The ships moored up in the Solent and the wounded soldiers were transported up Haslar creek by tramline hence 'Up the creek without a paddle'. They were held prisoner so that they would not desert while being treated, and some tried to escape by going through the sewers to the creek (another suggested origin of the alternative 'up s*** creek'). Without a paddle this would be hopeless, hence the phrase 'up the creek (without a paddle)' to mean being trapped, stuck or in trouble. Some very obscure navy related jargon entered the popular culture of the seafaring peoples of the British Isles, and thus entered the English language as a whole.

Bob
