    ESC Wiring (Turnigy)
    You're so right RowenπŸ‘ One last slurp of Castello Lugana and πŸ˜΄πŸ’€πŸ’€πŸ’€ Glad you liked my Sea Scout reportπŸ‘ As you can see from the vids I didn't have the slightest problem with slow speed manoeuvring or gradual TX stick controlled starts. No 'scalded cats'😊 Would be nice if more folks reported like that, instead of just when all is 'done and dusted'. Helps the newbies (which we all were way back thenπŸ˜‰) I hope, which is why I did it that way. On that happy note TTFN😊 CU, Doug 😎

    Just saying hello
    "Part built " So far so good MikeπŸ‘ Shame you didn't go for an original true twin screw set up though. Cheers, Doug 😎 PS A word to the wise though! I would detach those coamings from the hatch decks and glue them permanently to the main deck. Only then can they properly serve their purpose. Namely; to prevent ingress of water to the interior! Your choice, your risk!πŸ˜‰

    Hi to all out there. Restoring an RC submarine can anyone help to identify this electrical item to help me understand what it is for and how does it work? Some of the wiring from it does connect to items like battery and to a receiver but there are two wires from the probe hi & lo outlets which do not seem to connect to anything. Any help would be appreciated.🀞

    Corinna Mae
    Scratch built small tugboat seen in Mahone Bay,Nova Scotia, which has a chine steel sheet hull. Overall length was 48’ width 12’, single screw, crew of two. The original tugboat was named Enmore, built in 1959, on the shores of Lake Ontario, by Belmar Welding Company Ltd. It was destined to be a public works tug in Charlotte Town, PEI. Her current name is Miss Katherine, but I may name my model after my daughter, Corinna Mae.
    SS Talacre
    1/48 Scale SS Talacre, 3 year build, Foggy Smoke unit, Sound and lights. I might use a smaller lighter battery to bring the ship out of the water as she sits a wee bit too low. all the best George
    H.s.l. High speed launch
    Scratch built HSL.length is 52 inches and a beam of 10. And draws about 3 inch of draft. She runs on one large brushless motor by aquastar. 2200 kv. On 4 cells I get a lively performance to say the least. The prop is a two blade racing prop (x) of 50 mm. And made of stainless steel and balanced.The esc is 150 amp by Flycolor. I have this make in nearly all of my boats and never had any trouble whatsoever
    New England Lobster Boat
    My son found the framed hull at a garage sale with the radio. Nothing else, no plans, no parts, no kit box! I found the Midwest construction manual on line but no plans. Made the cabin sides by enlarging the image in the manual. Everything else is by guess and by golly.
    Tsekoa 2
    Model Slipway Canadian "Tsekoa 2". used for dock - buoys and other maintenance work on the Pacific cost of Canada.
    Rescue Tug
    Rescue tug is based on Springer tug plans for the hull and drive. The superstructure is scratch build with polystyrene. Constructed to assist in recovering stranded sailing yachts at the local pond. It has two - 4.5ah 6 volt batteries which give a nice balanced ballast and provide for hours of run time. See my build log for more details, search "rescue tug". 😎
    Thames Sailing Barge 'Stangate'
    'Stangate' is a 1/24 model sailing barge based on a 'Portlight' hull from Dave Watts Mastman. She is seen here sailing for the first time at Cold Knap Lake, Barry. The wind was rather flukey so a good test was not really possible, but she answered the helm positively and I have every reason to think she will sail well.
    Motor Anti-Submarine Boat
    Built from a semi-kit, she is based on MASB 23, with a BPB 63' long hull. I found it greatly therapeutic and satisfying to plank the deck - for the plank around the edge, I used flexible beech, expensive but does the trick, I think. I used Lifecolor acrylic paints applied with a brush throughout. I purchased the figures from Deans and you will see that the skipper is trialling the new 'cell phone', which he is holding in his left hand. (If any of you can identify this item as anything else, answers on a postcard............).
