Futaba F-14 Marine TX/RX. Twin Stick operating Main Sail winch and Forsail winch. Reversing switch to reverse the Forsail winch when Tacking.

Motor: Main Sail, Jib Sail, Genoa/Blister
1:10 scale model of a "Round the World" ocean racing Yatch. I have the Genoa kit fitted and the Blister kit fitted. While sailing in rough weather, a certain amount of water built up in the cockpits, so I fitted an autobailer, to syphon it away without docking. The other modification is to the main Sail sheeting. Instead of the the main sheet coming up through the deck, and along the boom and fixed to the cleat in the cockpit! I ran the main sheet directly into the cockpit, across a pulley and up to the boom. Along the boom and down to a traveller mounted on the cabin roof. Allowing the main Sail to swing out, but stay taught, and then giving twist to the Sail when on a broad reach. See posted pictures.

This boat was built from a set of plans that I perched years ago. I used the basic plans as a guide for the hull, then built the rest simmerly to the boat called Ocean Alexander 90. It has taken me 18 months to complete, and now she is ready for her first sea trial. Will keep you inform of her performance.

This is an Engel kit, but heavily modified. The deck was replaced with 2mm polycarbonate and slots cut with a slotting tool on a lathe/drill. There are 3 access hatches instead of the original 1. The internal layout was completely revised. The dive system is the Engel Tmax that works very well. There are too many other changes to mention, but suffice to say they were to make the submarine more realistic and also easier to maintain.

Originally built by my Dad in the early sixties, fitted then with a Taycol Target and two very wet lead acid accumulators. First renovation about 26 years ago for my daughter Jessica, fitted with a 6V Decaperm. Performance was VERY sedate. Perhaps fitting for a Broads Cruiser? The Taycol will now go into the Danish fish cutter I am currently renovating. First two pics show her condition, incl. engine room, last year after about 25 years in the cellar. Last three pictures show current condition after extensive renovation, see 'Build Blog Jessica' and refit. Video shows her Sea Trial end of May https://youtu.be/b0BWJ3duzDw Now just cockpit fit to do and suitable crew to find. Can't 'select' Speed here as she wasn't equipped with GPS! But quick! Now she planes well so I guess I've turned her into a Sport Fishing Boat!? Rating/Score I also can't select for myself, that's something for you guys to do! ;-) Crew now enlisted and on board! Now complaining about lack of comfort in the open cockpit :-/. Just updated Score from the default 5 (=Average) to 8 cos I reckon she's more than just 'Average'. Don't remember seeing this possibility before !?

This started out as a Seaport Dickie Harbour Tug, that came with a 40Mhz radio system, ESC and a small water pump. So the first thing was to remove the 40Mhz system and replace it with a new 2.4 alone with a replacement ESC, I also removed the water pump. It was now time to think how I was going to repaint her, as the club had been invited to out local R.N.L.I. station I came to the decision that I would make her into a R.N.L.I Concept Tug.

My model of the Christian Radich a Norwegian full-rigged ship. I don’t recall the manufacturer’s details of this model kit but I believe it was of Spanish origin. Construction of the model is a double plank hull and deck with most of the small fittings being supplied in the kit of parts, the build time was 680 hours. The vessel was built in Sandefjord, Norway and was delivered on 17 June 1937. The owner was The Christian Radich Sail Training Foundation established by a grant from an officer of that name. The vessel is a full-rigged three masted steel hull, 62.5 m long, with an overall length of 73 m including the bowsprit and a maximum width of 9.7 m. She has a draught of about 4.7 meters and a displacement at full load of 1050 tons. Under engine power she reaches a top speed of 10 knots, while she can make up to 14 knots under sail. In 1939, the ship sailed across the Atlantic to visit the World Trade Fair in New York. The ship and the voyage created huge press coverage and made Christian Radich famous. When the ship came back home in September 1939, she was taken over by the Norwegian Navy. After the German invasion, the Nazi’s used the ship as an accommodation ship. At the end of the war, Christian Radich was towed to Flensburg in Germany where it was later bombed and sunk. At the end of the war, Christian Radich was hoisted up and towed to Kiel with a minesweeper as a protection ship. She was later towed to Norway and fully restored in 1947. There is a rich source of information about this beautiful ship on the internet if anyone is interested to learn more about her.

Found this kit on a well-known auction site and bought it for £100. It is the original Robbe kit and fittings included. There was no command module and so I have devised a way of having working anchors, tow, crane and warning beacon, bow thruster, nav lights and searchlight. It was a bit of a struggle to balance her properly and she needs quite a lot of ballast. A real handful, you might say but she looks really well on the pond.
