Water Witch by GARTH Lieutenant   Posted: 3 hours ago
[Score: 9/10] 17"/2100g Water Witch Capable of 3mph and a runtime of 70mins Direct Drive Powered by NiMH (7.2v) 2Amp/h Batteries - Comments: Found plans in a Model Boat Magazine from England The plans where down size I used 1/8 pine strips for the hull and epoxy as sealer This model was a replicate of a Scotish fishing boat converted to pleasure crafts .

Aeronaut Pilot Boat by onetenor Commander   Posted: 7 hours ago
Early in this thread I saw Depron mentioned as being the material of the build Was this so ? If so what glue was used in the build. UHU por or similar brand is usually recommended.Re Glueing metal to plastic good old Gorilla Glue is the one Much cheaper then those others and has good gap filling too.👍

Aeronaut Pilot Boat by cormorant Captain   Posted: 7 hours ago
Hi Nick Yes, I was very pleased with the final model and its maiden voyage. It looks particularly good with all the lights on. Just a reminder, be very precise when positioning the hull skins and don't use too much glue as the ribs will show through. Best of luck. Steve

Aeronaut Pilot Boat by NickW Sub-Lieutenant   Posted: 9 hours ago
Some really good posts here, i'm also on the brink of purchasing the Pilot boat.....never built one before but if keep to the advice and tips given then I should be ok.....I hope --- Steve did you have a successful launch when you sailed it for the first time?

Speranza 01 by muddy Lieutenant   Posted: 13 hours ago
This is one that i,ve yearned after for some considerable years. Had the plans in the 1960's, I think, but it was always put on the back burner. But needs must, we have a big sailing lake now and a Sea Queen looks ideal on this water. Speranza, built from Plans, first thing source the timber, 5mm ply for keel and bulkheads,and Obechie 6mm X 3mm laminated for stringers and chine lines. Transferring bulkheads/frames to the timber can be daunting, but several methods can be applied. Personally i prefer to Trace the outline and detail then pin prick the outlines onto the timber, you can do this direct from the plan, but using tracing paper or drafting film saves the drawing from disintegrating. Have used carbon paper in the past, but I did find this a bit messy, a personal choice.

Norstar Wave Princess resurrected by AllenA Seaman   Posted: 2 days ago
Thanks Dave. Good to have some feedback and I will certainly post a video asap. Think I will upgrade my ESC in the near future and I am really tempted to install a 700 BB Turbo. That may be gilding the Lily though. Just out of interest I picked up the MacGregor II at the same time as the Digimac III. That one works as well. They were good quality fair play.

Norstar Wave Princess resurrected by Dave M Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 2 days ago
Hi AllenA Welcome to the site. Your model looks superb and you have restored to almost original condition, including the MacGregor! Looks better than the one I used to own! The smaller prop will be much better, I have cooked a couple of speed 600s with a too large prop. The lip at the front may not bwe correct but it certainly fits with the period when the model was built. Good luck with the new prop and perhaps you will post a video so we can all share your experience of this nostalgic model sailing. Dave

Jet Sprint Boat by Rod Lieutenant   Posted: 2 days ago
So am I Wayne It's coming together nicely now Should finish top deck mould in the next week or so Cheers

1/12scale SPEEDLINE Trent lifeboat kit by Rocky Recruit   Posted: 2 days ago
Hello, Firstly is the lifeboat kit still for sale? If so, does it come with instructions as well as plans for each stage of the build? Finally, my budget would be around the £475 mark, would this be considered as a reasonable offer, obviously if not I fully understand. Thank you.

Jet Sprint Boat by Midlife306 Commander   Posted: 2 days ago
Hehe, I'm getting excited Rod👍 Cheers Wayne
