    RN Island Class Patrol Vessel
    Hi Bobby, Attached are the best photos I could find showing Island Class rear ends ๐Ÿ˜ฎ๐Ÿ™ˆ The pic of BNS Sangu you may recognise, formerly HMS Guernsey P297. As usual most photos are of a few points off the bow, probably thought to be more dramatic / dynamic. These mysterious racks look like 3x2 chutes for dropping something, I know not what, into the drink. Hedgehog bombs maybe? Fuel can racks sounds plausible, but why then would you need the big 'oles in the bulwark for that? And would you really want racks of high octane fuel standing about on the quarter deck?๐Ÿ”ฅ Also puzzling is why 2 stbd side, only 1 portside and 1 in the transom? Just build them as 3x2 wine racks and fill 'em with champers bottles. ๐Ÿ˜‰ Curiously; while sniffing around I ran across a Deans Marine 1/96 Island class kit advertised as HMS Guernsey. On opening the description the photo showed HMS Orkney, P299, with correct name and pennant number! https://deansmarine.co.uk/shop/product_info.php/cPath/10_31/products_id/470 Velly stwange! Happy building Doug ๐Ÿ˜Ž Viewing tip; If you download the photos and view in a half decent image viewer (I use Irfanview) you can see the much larger images as in the originals.

    Bad or no dignal
    Hi Gary, The white bit should just be a tube with the antenna wire inside. So with luck you can carefully pull some of the wire down a bit until you can attach the plug easily. Good luck๐Ÿคž Doug ๐Ÿ˜Ž

    Motors for 1/32 scale plastic Elco PT boat
    Hi Tim, I suggest you start with something like a pair of 385 size motors. They are 5 pole so run nice and smooth, especially when starting, and are efficient so not too current hungry. If you still think she's too fast for the grandkiddies you could always use the 'End Point' setting on the TX to limit the throttle travel, e.g. 75-80%, or whatever seems reasonable to you. You could then reset it to 100% when you wanted to unleash the 'full fury' and have some fun๐Ÿ˜‰ Check out MFA or Cornwall Model Boats for the motors. https://www.cornwallmodelboats.co.uk/acatalog/mfa-re385.html#SID=2304 For the ESC an Mtroniks Viper Marine 10 or 15 would do nicely. I have a few Marine 10s, never had any trouble with 'em. https://www.cornwallmodelboats.co.uk/acatalog/Mtroniks-marine-Speed-Controllers.html Oh, and don't forget the Motor (spark) suppression kit๐Ÿ˜‰ https://www.cornwallmodelboats.co.uk/acatalog/motor_suppression.html I have a 1/32 PTB made of wood, much heavier than a plastic version I guess. When I bought it it was fitted with two 2200Kv brushless. The chap I bought it from said he was selling cos it was much too quick for him! We'll see. It's currently under refit (like many of my boats๐Ÿค”). Hope this helps๐Ÿคž Cheers, Doug ๐Ÿ˜Ž

    Ahoy friends! I found this pristine Sterling kit from Old Model Kits, and since it's a boat I have wanted to build since I was a lad, I knew I needed to get my grubby little hands on it! It is a thing of beauty, everything is still in bags, undisturbed since 1980 or thereabouts.

    This is my first boat in a few years, It's based on a hull by Chuck Steffen.

    Yeah, but it was a package deal with the Cranberry Isle Lobster Boat, Honey
    Dumas Chris Craft Cobra If you hear no more from me, that means my wife has discovered my boat stash. Yes, it needs work, but it has solid bones! Heck, all the boats I acquire need a little TLC. It will be standing tall when it hits the club pond. Hello, My name is Dave, and I have a model boat problem.....
    OK, she's gonna kill me - Midwest Cranberry Isle Lobster Boat
    The guy didn't know what he had, and was anxious to dump it.
    PLEASE don't tell my wife ....
    I saw this in a local online sellers site ... I couldn't resist. It is a fun, easy to run boat. The kids at the local pond loved the working fire monitor!
    1986 Bayliner 3250
    This is the very first scratch build I ever "started" way back when I was still in school. It began as a cover photo on a copy of Power Boating Ontario in July of 1986. I was looking for something that wasn't difficult (never thought that one through) as it was meant as a project for some youth that myself and a friend were working with through Youth for Christ in London Ontario. The plan was to keep it small so the original drawings would create a hull no larger than 20" that could be operated with a 2 channel radio and would be a cheap build
    Veron Marlin Cruiser Rebuild
    Picked up a vintage Veron Marlin Cruiser that was in bad shape many years ago when I was young, working and had little time to do anything with it. During the covid "work at home years" years I got off my butt, covered the front deck opening, planked the deck and rebuilt the cabin to give the front window more slope. Can't wait to get a big motor for this sucker and finish it off this summer!
