    Hi Ken, Sometimes it is the most simplest of things that make life easier. I cannot remember who said this "necessity is the mother of invention". Martin.

    Scale Figure Guide.
    Hi Red, I was just being nosey and looking around on the net and as soon as I came across it I thought of the members on this site. Even if the scale that you are working on is not on the sheet you can estimate the scale. Martin.

    Tamar Lifeboat propellers
    Hi Want to change to brass propellers on Model Slipway 1/16 Tamar Lifeboat. Lost one of the original plastic propeller supplied in kit , and looking at Roboesch 40mm brass as replacements . Not sure whether to go for 3 or 4 blades and type A or C Type props. Good speed from the supplied props with kit running with brushless Tornado 3536 1050kv on 3s lipo. Any recommendations of what to go for would be helpful. Thanks

    Veronica
    In the process of making the London Sailing barge Veronica.
    Amerigo Vespucci
    Very nice static model that has been converted to power, now all I have to do is finish her build.
    My first model "PRIDE OF FIFE"
    Built her a few years ago after buying the hull at a car boot sale. Great learning curve for my introduction to model boats.
    AZIZ
    Picked this up via my local club "for sale" notices, in need of a good refit, will go nicely with the one I have just started.πŸ‘
    Nantucket whaling boat
    Just had to build one of these after reading about the history of whaling.
    Sea Princes
    At 23 inches long .... who washed his sea commander its shrunk, deck and fittings in the next few days now with my first attempt at planking the deck
    First scratchbuild Clyde Puffer
    My first (Not including the Mastman Bantam Tug) scratchbuild!, really enjoyed this one and I know there’s no such thing as a finished boat, I’ll continue to adorn it, it’s maiden sail was really successful only thing I have changed is the rudder throw from the servo it needed more for tighter turns
    WSP 9
    Police boat model by Vladyka.The whole building from ABS, engine MIG 400 water-cooled, reheater DSYS 18A, battery 2600mA LiPol. A very stable ship, even at higher speeds, maneuverable and comfortable.
