    replacing prop shaft
    Hi chaps thanks for the replies on the prop angle. I need to raise the motor by about 5mm to get the prop and motor shaft as straight as possible doing this l will have to realign the prop shaft. originally the motor shaft and prop shaft were at an angle to one another. Cheers Bill for the prop idea having it just close enough to the rudder post so that if it does unscrew you don,t lose it. Brilliant. Cheers guys stay safe regards, Jim.

    1/24 scale.VOSPER 72'-6" SERIES11-TYPE 2 M.T.B.#376.
    This is one of my many Coastal Forces Model Boat Group models(11 in total.) that I have built and now sold. I was the founder member of the ALLIED COASTAL FORCES MODEL BOAT GROUP,formed in 1989 and for the first 3 years I was the only member,the story behind that, is the model club I was a member of at the time,when we went to shows they kept on insisting that I split up my models to different tables,amongst tugs,cabin cruisers and other non-coastal forces craft, I had 8 diff.MTB's/MGB's etc. at the time and a nice big sign +flags describing the C.F.M.B.G. Long story short,I left the club and all their pestering, and went to the shows as a seperate displayer...In 1992/3 I was being persued by the late great Mike Harding,he lived in Ware,a very good and great modeller,I had the honor of knowing this man,and to have him as my friend.) at every show I went too, he wanted to join the Group,so I agreed (at the last Greenwich Maritime show.) so together we could mount a display of 21 allied coastal forces craft, and later joined by John Lambert with his mass of reference material...We would attend with our models at the Coastal Forces Veterans meetings held in London, and listen to the stories of the boats they were on,and what they got up too in ww2. I will put more photos on of the other allied coastal forces in the next week or two😁😁😁 Happy sailing shipmates...
    L.C.M.-3. Scale:1/16. R/C WW2 LANDING CRAFT
    This L.C.M.-3(Landing Craft Mechanised) is a R.T.R. Made by TORRO MODELS, Complete with 6ch.TX +RX, just add battery, with working bow ramp,twin motors,ESC,servo's(3)and ready to take a 1/16 scale tank or as I have a 1/16 M-16 Multi-gun Motor carriage also R.T.R. working Model also made by TORRO MODELS...The L.C.M. is a very well made and detailed model,I added extra detail of life-rings,ID Markings,a sea-gull and a (Sea)Dog...This LCM is NOT a fictitious one(as stated in the article by the then editor, in Model Boats Aug.2019.) it resides in a chinese version of Imperial war museum in some chung-bung-dung πŸ˜‹province,(just up the road from Hong Kong, it was one of a batch given to China as part of an Aid Programme, the last 2 pic's show the real LCM...😁Happy boating Sea dogs...😁
    P.B.R.-126 (Pibber)1/18 Scale U.S.Navy, Vietnam
    The P.B.R.(Patrol Boat River)was used in Vietnam from 1966-70ish by the U.S.Navy Riverine forces(River Rats)Brownwater navy, the model is a R.T.R.by PROBOAT MODELS. It comes complete ready to go... with 2 Ch. r/c (a 3rd channel can be added to rotate the fwd. twin 0.50 cal.mount, the nav.lights and search lights all work,this is a very detailed boat,exactly like the real craft,it is powered by 1xLipo 2S 7.4 4000mAh Battery driving Twin Water Jets,(no reverse bucket fitted)but can do a sharp turn to port or starb'd nearly in its own length. And it comes up on the plane,just like the real boat,I have added artwork/grafitti as per the vietnam boats crews did...The crew(2)are on detached duty from my 1/16 L.C.M.-3(WW2 U.S.Navy)and its "Call-sign is 'Gunfighter Two-Six...

    My Gaff Rigged Bristol Pilot Cutter started life as a static display model which I recently adapted for " Radio Control " . With extra sealing inside and out, she is seen here on her inaugural trial sailing - checking balance / trim /steering and simple sail control. Certainly no claims here on scale or workmanship ! - just a " fun and functional " model which more than satisfies my initial challenge ! .
    P.C.F.-79 VIETNAM SWIFT BOAT.
    This is a Caldercraft(out of production) 1/16 Scale, Patrol Craft Fast SWIFT Boat used by the U.S.NAVY (Brown water navy)River Rats in Vietnam1966-1970...to patrol the Coastal area's and Rivers of South Vietnam.(these craft were painted U.S.Navy gray for off the coast, and Olive Green overall for River patrols Mekong Delta...The 79 Boat was based in DaNang and Chu-Lai 1966-68...The model was originally built by John Vinall of Peterborough area.The crew are modern US Troops,so I am on the hunt for 1/16 scale US Troops/marines...I have lost contact with a guy in Spain who makes 3D any scale super detailed figures...
