    She's all set to go sailing at Our May 29 weekend at the Hamilton Steam Museum Our club Confederation Marine modellers haven't had a show here for 2 years so fingers crossed no more lock downs this year . But we still have to be carefull & keep getting booster shots & masks indoors for a little bit more .

    If you look closely, you may spot one green fake gas bottle and we can't forget that because they became torpedoes in the movie used to sink the German patrol ship.

    Just a little update on my R/C project of the 16 inch African Queen .It works motor runs rudder turns right way also still a lot of fine tuning inside hull & a bath tube test needed but I'm confident she will sail in a tiny pond one day.P/S put a little video on Media Gallery just to prove it works ! ๐Ÿ˜†.

    Today here in southern Ontario fall weather today rain & a little snow so worked on African Queen got lucky ask a fellow in our club if he had a small prop & stuffing box .He said he would look & if he found anything he would bring it to our March Club Meeting . I was pleasantly suprised as he found one . A model boat club is great as we can get things that other members may have . The only way to put motor in was to build up the hull bottom then make a pit to put motor in & away we go . It's a little crude but a little elbow grease will fix that up .

    My son gave me a flat bottom sail boat that he found on the street on garbage day . I wondered how I would fix it as the masts had been broken off it sat on the work bench for about 6 months finally decided to make a R/C African Queen out of this flat bottom sail boat .It's only 14 inch's so to put all the electronics in it will be a bit of challange ! The prop & rudder will have to be placed first so thats a beginning . Built a fake boiler & a fake steam engine from internet photo's I think there not to shabby .
