I carn't beleive i **** out not putting my dads(ernie lazenby) k7 on the water yesterday. At 8 50 am the water suddenly turned mirror smooth perfect for a run out and the tv and press were egging me on to put it on the water. The boat hire bloke said they would get me a boat and i asked about the speed limit on coniston and he said he was the one that enforces it but wouldnt mind if i ran model. With everyone looking at me and all the press my arse just fell out. Im so dissapointed with my self as it would have been on the national news running so well around the 80 mph mark. but it was good to have all my dads models on display at the memorial service ,they made a good back drop on top of the memorial. Ive put some photos of my day on here. Ian lazenby

Hi Ian,
Hehe, I've got to admit that the water did turn to glass at 8.50, I thought it was quite spiritual in a way, even DMC was egging you on....
Cheers

Well, plans arrived, they sent the wrong one for a small engine. I emailed them & they apologised & said they will get the correct one printed & sent out to me.
I hate waiting for stuff...

Hi Wayne,
I Have been told about the Nexus K7 plans and have also seen them myself. Although the plans I supply, need possibly updating, depending on which form you wish to produce, for which update photos are also supplied. However, my plans are correct in detail if they are of 1956 era. Mine are also half the price.
Regard to all, Fred

The Nexus plan arrived today & thankfully the correct one, to be fair they are crystal clear & the service I got was very good if you forget about them sending me the wrong plan at first.
I can thoroughly recommend them.
The scale is 1/8.4, I wonder how much bigger I dare go on my next build...

That nose just doesn't look right on the nexus plan.
