    Brilliant. Best war film I've seen in years.
    My mtb's of mtb 389. Built 40 odd years ago and left in the loft where it collected dust and soot. When I retired I brought it down, fitted a Graupner 700 motor in and ran it on 14.4v. It plains very realistic. Thanks for the video...๐Ÿ‘

    Up until now, I didn't have a tug boat in my harbor. Every harbor should have a tug on duty, right? This is how it came, I plan to add a couple embellishments, but this one is primarily "for fun".

    ๐Ÿ“ท Sterling models Chris Craft 63' LOA 40 inches.
    4 months ago by Brightwork ( Lieutenant)
    Flag
    Update on my Sterling Chris Craft 63'
    Well.... I redid the windows. Added new curtains and after adding the headliner to the wheelhouse, I realized I had not added the spot and anchor lights topside. So, I took it all out and built a new mast with light and drilled out the solid spot light and added a lens. I sanded and filled the imperfections on both cabin tops and repainted them. I wired everything to an external switch. LED are all 3 volt. I also noted that the stations that hold the aft roof extension were not to original Chris Craft pics, so I made new ones. Aft ones now rake in line with the wheelhouse windows. Looks more like they grew there. The photos do not do her justice. Quite happy with her. Enjoy

    Sweet looking cruiser. It takes some doing to make those old Sterling kits look that good. Theyโ€™re not bad kits, especially for their time period, but still, a lot of work. Enjoy her, sheโ€™s a keeper!!

    ๐ŸŽฌ "Slim Nip"
    4 months ago by philcaretaker ( Commander)
    Flag
    Exploring the possibilities of a new sleeker look to the Wee Nips that I have built previously , - I created the "Slim Nip" just as a development from the original classic Graham Bantock design.
    Length - 720mm
    Beam - 166mm
    Keel depth - 290mm
    Mast height - 1130mm above the deck.
    Maintaining the simplicity and convenience of a Uni rig , easy to transport , easy to rig , & no guys .
    Result was : - a new look, light wind, high aspect ratio - "Slim Nip".
    RC Sailing:- No.164 - Slim Nip

    This Racing Sparrow was built by Buxton Model Boat Member Graham Royle.
    Detail and precision are Grahams hallmark and it is a privilege for me to showcase some of his work through "RC Sailing" and the Model Boats Website.
    (Note best viewed on big screen to allow for pausing !)

    Model Boats Website also hosts other blogs of his ie. :-

    Back at Towne Lake for more fun and friendship. Had a good time, we saw 2 subs in the water, a few tugs, launches, working boats and an old MRP deep vee and a Micro Magic. I had a great time as I finally got my Italeri Vosper handling decently even in the windy conditions we had. A little more tweaking and sheโ€™ll be spot on, but Iโ€™m pleased with her for now.

    Cashrc,
    Those are some great boats, thanks for sharing. I'm literally green with envy. I'd love to drive out and play on the water with you guys, but Google Maps says it's 966 miles and a 15 hour drive. I guess I'll just have to wait for our 18" of ice to melt before I'm on the water. sigh ....

    ๐ŸŽฌ Camera Boat - update - ( NOTE PULSING NOISE ?? )
    5 months ago by philcaretaker ( Commander)
    Flag
    Just a quick update with the new camera boat before fitting and running with the Gopro attached.
    Observations :-
    1. Maneuverability - Great - but better control with high and low rate options!.
    2. Speed - Too much ? - may be , but enough for me to throttle back quickly !.
    3. Camera - Good balance and rotation for 360*.
    4. Cost - Minimal - ie. Motor & ESC kit from Hobbybitz.
    5. Noise - 5/10
    6. Fun Factor - 10/10 - just for fun ! - enjoy RC Sailing !.

    NOTE - I would be interested to know of any theories in respect of the "PULSING NOISE" of the motor ?????
    Cheers
