    Martin Goodall

    Issue 232 (2014)



    Siphon Cs were covered by two different diagrams - O8 and O9. The Diagram O8 was 28ft 6in over headstocks, 8ft 0in wide and had a wheelbase of 18ft 0in. The Diagram O9 was 6in wider and a foot longer, at 29ft 6in over headstocks, and had a 19ft 0in wheelbase. By adapting the elderly K's kit if a Siphon F, Martin Goodall has created a model that is a hybrid of the two diagrams, which, as he says, "causes me no concern at all"
