Name: Saudade Posted 8th Oct 2017 by Radiosailor Score: 5
Specs Power Source Control Drive Thrust



A real vintage yacht, this oldie dates back to the early seventies. Still in original configuration but will get modern hardware, 0.1mm x 19 stays and new wooden booms for head and mainsail. The rest will stay 'untouched'. (except for the railing which was way to big for being correct to scale; in fact they looked like footballgoals on deck!)

Name: MicroMagic Posted 8th Oct 2017 by Radiosailor Score: 5
Specs Power Source Control Drive Thrust
Length: 21 inches



Build this Micro Magic in 2006 - the newer Racing version was announced but still not available at that time - and raced her the two following seasons. Updated many things like sails and spars etc. Still enjoy her each summer: Where ever I go I'll bring her with me! I even sailed her on top of the Alps! (Freezing my fingers off!) But the Italian Lakes, the Swiss Lakes, the Mediterranean Sea, the Bodensee or just locally the Markermeer (southern part of IJsselmeer) are all familiar waters for this tiny sailboat.

Build this Seawind in the mid nineties, and as you can see sailing in the salty conditions in coastal waters can easily kill an unprotected reciever... (nowadays equipped with an extra Spektrum 2.4Ghz reciever - like all my boats so switching models is easy) This boat has also 19 x 0.1mm stays instead of the standard stuff.

Build the Comtesse about 22 years ago. I was also changed/updated from the start. I tried to make her look like a Swan 46 yacht.

Length: 36 inches
Weight: 2300 grams



I bought this kit as a ARTS kit, but immidiately threw out the 40Mhz transmitter, keel and supplied stays. I updated her with a 2.4Ghz Spekrtum transmitter, gave het 0.1mm x 19 new stays(standing rigging) and equipped her with a deeper keel in carbon with a hightech - like an modern TP52 yacht - shaped lead torpedo. Stockmaritime had some upgrading parts available at the time I build her. I also replaced the steel rod connecting the rudderlinkage to the sero by a carbon rod. Te only upgrade which still has to be carried out is replacing all the aluminium spars for EXEL cruise 8 carbon spars. All modifications help to increase uprting moment and upwind performance. The boat really sails very good, altough the mainsaillead could benefit from a upgrade as well. (it has jsut a bit too much resistance and the material has a too small diameter resulting in extra wear on the mainsheet.) This sailboat is the the fith sailing boat I build, after starting with an overhaul on a friend's vintage Robbe Skandia yacht.(which got me hooked on RC sailing) After that rebuild I've build the Comtesse(Robbe), Seawind(Kyosho), MicroMagic(Graupner) and then this yacht. Since this build my collection of sailing models grew with addition of a Saudade (Hegi/Revell), Diana (vintage M-class by Robbe), two Rubins (semi scale admirals cup yacht from Graupner) and a Robbe Skandia for myself...

Sprinkles is a scratch built U.S. Coast Guard PWB, patrol waterways boat. Operating features include; searchlight and running lights, revolving blue emergency light, rotating radar, and a water monitor that fires 10-15 feet and can I studied various styles of water monitors and finally decided on one that is a composite of several types. Bending the tubing was difficult, nozzle was made on Unimat. Power is from Sig "gas passer" pump. I purchased the rotating beacon on ebay and power is from 5V voltage regulator.
