Enjoy the turmoil!! 😉 and the heat !? 😡 Saludos, Doug 😎

White lines by Krampus Lieutenant   Posted: 7 hours ago
Hello! In my case, I use vinyl car decorative stripes. Ebay offers them very cheap, less than US$4.00 with shipping and everything. Once I apply them, I use a hairdryer to melt the vinyl a little bit. With this method they stick very well.

Still in DC but getting back to Germany in early December. Looking forward for a meeting with you and any other model boat rebel upon my return.😁

Hi Krampus, nice tidy boat 👍 Are you still in Washington or back in Garmisch? Grüß Doug 😎

Here's the Chris Craft I built for my daughter from an old 1969 Graupner kit. Bienvenido al grupo, amigo!

Motor Cooling by Oyster Petty Officer   Posted: 7 hours ago
Just curious. When setting up cooling coils for a motor does it run off a pump or just sea to sea piping.

battery charging by jarvo Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 9 hours ago
HI Nutrunner, if the battery is completely flat it might be a right off. The cells could be damaged, however, if you trickle charge at a milliamp rate you may get some charge back, try 1ooma to start with, this would take about 20 hours to get some charge, enough to test if the battery is ok

White lines by Rookysailor Sub-Lieutenant   Posted: 9 hours ago
Hi Alan, I bought mine at a model engineering show, a pinstriping set by 'BEUGLER' a USA company. My kit has three sizes of pinstrip,1/16,1/8 and 3/32, they have a wide selection of sizes, try them on the website, not cheap but good quality. Peter

newbie by colinhubbard Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 11 hours ago
Welcome to the group, look in the club section for your nearest. Nice boat to start you on the road (water) to good boating. Please post pictures if you can. And don't be scared to ask for help. We have members who are very willing to give advice.

Phantom by Tica Chief Petty Officer   Posted: 14 hours ago
[Score: 8/10] 28"/1000g Phantom Single Propellor (3 Blade 35mm) Direct Drive to a Turnigy D2836 1100kv (3 Blade) Powered by LiPoly (7.4v) 2Amp/h Batteries Controlled Through HK 30 A Boat ESC ESC - Comments: Bought it as partly build, and had to take it more or less apart to make it straight. Used a PU glue for the first set of planking, what a mess but it's strong. First trails on water showed that the balance was wrong so have to re-arrange the electronics. Unfortunately the trails also revealed that I had missed something with the sealing (my wife used the same materials for her Classic without any problems) so first of all I'll have to strip parts of the mahogany plating down and redo it :-( before I'll do any thing more on this model.

Billings Sea King in need of TLC by AllenA Commander   Posted: 17 hours ago
Walked into the boot sale this morning and saw this from 50yds. It's a Sea King needing some love and attention. She is 27.5" long with a 9" beam. Twin como motors, futaba 2ch. receiver and Etroniks Probe ESC. Along with battery and Ripmax Transmitter. I have nearly finished my Dolphin 16 and the Sea King will be the next project. I will add it to my Harbour but she may be in dry dock for a good time as i sort out the cosmetics. I've included the Dolphin in the photos. What a lucky boy! If anyone has photos or plans as to how she should look I would be grateful to see them.
