I will eventually sell one for sure but not until September/October.
You'll be the first one to know if you're interested. I will definitely keep the one from the ship for sentimental reasons :)

I totally understand that! :spaceace:

It's buried under tons of other cabs and I can't really reach it at the moment  :oops:
... but from what I read on the net the kiddie ride "technology" hasn't change much, is really reliable and often easy to fix.
"86% of all breakdowns are due to a coin jam, and 10% due to the ride not being plugged in" (from kiddyrides.uk.com)  ;D
The hardest part to source will be the yellow plexiglass windshield, I 've already contacted some companies but the piece is really big and it's often a problem for them. DIY vacuum forming is also very difficult for such large parts so I'm still searching.

a guy on ukvac joined to say he used to play on the ships arcade when he was a child in the early 80's. He found this picture from his parents holiday photo books. It's your helicopter  :spaceace:

How cool is that ! He should come over to make a new pic when it's restored !  ;D ;D ;D ;D

Did they have more pics of the arcade area ? It's so stupid, we never ever thought about taking pics in arcades b.i.t.d. :(

DUKE OF LANCASTER SHIP REBORN



An Abandoned Cruise Liner docked off the North Wales Coastline, has been brought back to life over the last month, with some intricate street art murals created by some legendary street artists – and it has now been confirmed that more works are set to come from other international artists over the coming weeks, in a bid to transform the landmark into the UK’s largest open air art gallery.
