    Hi everybody,
    Joined the site back in 2017 while I was getting over heart surgery, It taken a long time and 3 ops. but am now retired, recently married and looking forward to getting back into modelling. My model dockyard is now up and running ( 18ft workshop from the wife as a wedding present, She told me I had to move the lathe,drill and workbench out of the bedroom before she would move in. women are funny about things like that!!!. So now I've got a nice big workshop to start building in.) and she has got a nice clean bedroom, the art pf compromise is not dead..
    I Have recently acquired a 46" huntsman Hull without any superstructure so now I've got to decide what type to build and see if I can get any plans.
    As I said i joined back in 2017 but have spent the last 2 years lurking in the background, I've enjoying all the posts, you are an amazing bunch of people, very friendly, extremely diverse and I only hope that I can contribute as much as you all seem to.

    I've been a member since Jan 2019 but building rc boats for over 6 months now! A real novice, but love doing it now I have the time. As a Novice I have really valued all the help and advice you get on this site.
    I also like the build Blog as its a complete record of progress on building the boat for others to see and learn where maybe the build instructions are not like real life!

    Hello, Joined this site as returned to model boats after some years absence and think this site will be useful for info, hints etc. There are no boating hobbyist in my town, nearest boating lake is the superb one at Basingstoke, of which I am a member. Main work is finishing off a Thames Barge (kit)and a Vic Smeed designed Thornycroft MTB. Wishing you a fair wind in your sails. SpidedBruce

    Hello, Just been a member for a short time now and I really enjoy this site. Couple of reasons, I enjoy getting information from different parts of the world, different views. One of my main interests is English Working Sailboats, I find the feedback from the UK guys great! My ancestry is English, having sailed on the ship Abigail in 1628. My enthusiasm has been encouraged by all of the very helpful posts. Fast way to get information and collaboration.
    Regards, Joe

    Always keep researching and finding plenty of useful information. Additionally, I try to share information so not all disappears because of forums closing. Besides, trying to explain and to present was I am doing is a good way to massage my knowledge and my projects to get new perspectives.

    Hi All. Many may already recognise the 'nutter from Munich' 😁
    but I just wanted to say-
    I first stumbled across this site and enrolled here in 2014 but was still in harness and trundling around the world working with various navies and shipyards on all sorts of naval ships from small Fast Patrol Boats through subs, Corvettes and Frigates up to LPDs, Heli and Escort Carriers. So I didn't have much time for model building (sounds better than 'Modelling' somehow 😁😲) or contributions to the site, but I did try to keep up to date with advances, as I always did in my profession - Naval COMMS systems - and dipped in and out of this site without getting involved.
    Since I retired last year I have become an active member and have also dipped into, and registered with some, other Model Boat forums in various countries.
    But in all of them I have never found such an international, friendly and knowledgable bunch as on this site. Or such a well organised site where it is 'relatively' easy to find the info you need, or to just ask and get informed answers pronto. Sure there is room for improvement in some areas but "Tempus fugit" and things move on - so is it also on this site.
    I understand that a facelift and changes are afootπŸ˜‰ whatever the outcome I'm sure you won't find a better web site for informed (bin there done that!) info on model boat / ship building as well as research on the original vessels this side of the asteroid belt!
    Welcome aboard and Happy Building and Sailing,
    All the best, cheers, Doug 😎

    Hello!
    Joined a few days ago after retiring from abroad (18 years) and bringing my Krick "Victoria" down, from its well-cosseted storage in my loft. I put her together over 30 years ago... placed new batteries in the R/C... water, gas, squirt of oil on the engine, a long (lit) spill... and yippeeee!
    Just smartening her up now.
    A great site! Thank you

    I have been a member of the forum for just over a week.
    I have to say that the help given by members is without limits. I am so pleased that I found these people. They enjoy the hobby and have no problem in sharing their knowledge and experiences even when they are busy with their own projects.
    I built a Patrol Torpedo Boat many years ago and wanted to refurbish it. The changes in the hobby which have taken place in the twenty years since I built my boat have surprised me. My project has grown from just tidying up the deck to a complete replacement of the motor and control.
    I now know that I can continue with the improvements knowing that there is a freindly helping hand just a few clicks away.
    My thanks to you all, and in a few years time I hope to be able to help others.😊
    Peter. Paignton, England.

    I do a lot of wreck research and one of the reasons I joined was to find a sea plane tender that had picked up the pilot from a 1941 plane I had found underwater. I needed a photo of a similar boat but couldn't find the tender on the web. I mentioned it on here and back came a photo of the self same sea plane tender from RNMunich? That meant so much to me but I have been intrigued by the details and research modellers do on here. I felt so grateful that I donated to such a great site.

    It has and in many ways. I'm sailing for my little grandson who is only two. I have never sailed a model boat before, be it motor or yacht. But I'm determined to learn to pass on the him when is older. The articles you present are very informative and your club listings are excellent. I'm confident Ill continue to associate myself with your website and continue to learn.

    What else can I add besides all of the great complements and appreciations others have left about this website.
    Knowledge and experience is what this website is all about.
    We as rookies need them both to build our models, so anything we need is right here.
    At first I was a bit intimidated about my build, now I can sleep with no worries knowing that some great guy will jump eagerly to answer our questions .
    This website is our best tool.

    Hi, I have kept safely and replaced the old IC set up in my 1960's Aerokit Sea Commander with a modern electric system. Unfortunately, I’m not sure that I was given the right advice and although the boat runs ok, it is slow, only reaching what I would call a scale β€œriver-cruising” speed. I would like it to be capable of a bit more (without reaching β€œracing” speed) and wondered if anybody can advise me on a more suitable engine/battery/controller configuration?

    I am currently using an MFA Torpedo 500 motor powered by a VP 3700 7.2v 3700mAh battery pack through a Fusion Aquapower 128 (128A max continuous current) controller.

    Any pointers will be gratefully welcomed.

    The website has been of great interest and useful to me as a starting point for modeling.
    Been modeling for just a short while and have received some good advice .

    Not the sort of website that is so over busy as you can follow posts and blogs at a slow and informative pace.
    All the members are friendly and helpful.

I have recently ordered myself a Vintage Model Works 46" RAF Crash Tender. it's my first boat but I have built a few aircraft over the years so hope that will help me. I have already gained some useful tips from the build blogs etc. and I'm sure I will be asking for lots of help and advice, thanks everyone, Ian.

    I have recently inherited my Dad's 1960's Aerokits Sea Commander still in its original state with 3.5cc diesel IC and his own self-designed and scratch-built electrics. This is the boat that won the "M.P.B.A. R/C Speed Championship 3.5cc" in 1963. I would love to convert it to electric motor and modern r/c, preferably without destroying any vintage interest it may have, and see it running again but I think I'm going to need a lot of advice as I am a complete modelling novice. Hoping to show it on the South Manchester Model Boat Club stand at Haydock next weekend.

    As I moved to Devon just over two years ago I am currently not a member of a club or have my workshop up and running. I have a substantial fleet of all types of boat and will hopefully get back into restoration and new models as well as getting my substantial fleet back to operational status.
    The SITE allows me to keep in touch with current modellers and offer an association help where I can.

    Just kind of stumbled across this site as I was trying to find out what had happened to eezibilt web site.
    I am in the process or should that be building a Tortola sloop, well it will be my version as it seems there are variations on the theme..( as in music) , I'm also making a X2 version of Eezibulit Curlew, I've done the original and a 75% version. 1.5 X version, so now I'm going for the big one, TWICE the size, comes out at 20 and a 1/2 inches. might be a bit more once the skins are on?
    I made a larger version of Mermaid but thought it didnt look too great...the original I have sailed on Loch Ken in Scotland, a long way to go to sail a boat but I was on holiday up there. I think along with Curlew they are nice little boats.
    Just one other question Does anyone know the whereabouts of HArry Duncan I was emailing him up to a while ago but now he seems to have gone awol?
    Dont forget to ring 5 and go sideways... πŸ’­

    Looked at a few sites for help and information with my first boat and this was the ONLY one that seems as it should be 'Helpful and Friendly'. Read a few posts and saw--- No clicks, no my boats better than your boat and no superiority complexes which is rare in a lot of groups or forums. Signed up straightaway.

    I have made a comeback to the world of modeling and things have changed beyond recognition. I felt lost untill I penned my problems and recieved help and encouragement beyond what I thought of as normal for a forum. This forum is special and I feel at home here.

    I am looking for plans and photographs of the James Braidwood Fire boat that operated up until 1961 on the River Thames by the London Fire Brigade.

    Lots of great info here. I could use some help to figure out my radio system. my boat is twin engine twin rudder with action mixer and a bow thruster and my radio is a spectrum dx6I with dsmx mode2. Any thoughts on how to wire it so I have forward and reverse throttle and left right bowthruster control and rudder control?.
