Maybe the next boat to finish from my dad list of unfinished projects. Just 3 boats to go and 3 petrol engines to consider. This was to be petrol electric with LandRover wiper motors to power from a generator driven by the 4 cylinder 4 stroke petrol engine.

THE BUILDER OF THESE HULLS DOES JUST ABOUT EVERY USCG CRAFT, WWII TO PRESENT. UNFORTUNATELY, DUE TO HEALTH REASONS, HE IS ABOUT TO RETIRE AND RELINQUISH THE FORMS. HIS WEBSITE IS COASTGUARD MODELS.COM IF ANYONE IS INTERESTED. I PLAN TO ORDER A USCG BAY CLASS ICEBREAKING TUG THIS WEEK, BEFORE IT'S OBSOLETE. THAT WOULD ALSO COMPLETE MY USCG FLEET THAT IS RELATIVE TO MY SERVICE. THERE ARE NO SUPERSTRUCTURE ASSEMBIES AVAILABLE FOR THE WMEC, HENCE A SCRATCH BUILD FROM THE MAIN DECK IS IN MY NAUTICAL FUTURE. LUCKILY, GEORGE BIEDA @ WINDJAMMERARTS.COM PUT TOGETHER A LARGE SHEET OF 1:48 DRAWINGS FOR THE CONSTRUCTION. MY PHOTOGRAPHIC MEMORY IS PRETTY GOOD, BUT EVERY LIL BIT HELPS, I RECKON. THERE IS, HOWEVER A S/S & CABIN ASSLY FOR THE BAY CLASS, AT A COST, OF COURSE. PARATUS GERERE!

THERE WERE 110 OF THESE MLB'S BUILT BY THE COAST GUARD YARD IN CURTIS BAY, MD, AND THE DESIGN WAS SO SUCCESSFUL, IT WAS DUPLICATED BY THE RNLI AND STILL IN SERVICE TODAY. THERE ARE EVEN A COUPLE FOR SALE THE LAST TIME I CHECKED. OTHER THAN THE 40' UTB, THE 44 IS MY FAVORITE COASTAL RESCUE CRAFT.

Waterline model to scale 1/192. Model is really a hybrid of the ship during her commissioned lifetime (1939 - 1956). She served mainly in Mediterranean and Far East. Seriously damaged on several occasions, resulting in numerous modifications, which is why I had so many problems settling on a model true to any one date.

I felt the need to build something large from scratch having built Sea Nymph Sea Rover aero kits Swordsman kit. Many GRP based I/C powered before converting many of them to Brushless power. In Feb 2017 I bought plans from ebay in readiness for a family trip to Wales. My brother in law has a well kitted workshop in which he produced Sailing dingy kits before retiring. The aim was to produce this boat for the least possible cost. Thankfully there are lots of ply off cuts in Wales plus an 8x5 sheet of 1.5mm so I set about making my own kit during the time I was there. The motor was to be a Marx Decaperm selected from my bits box which I chose to set up using the geared drive. On the first launch performance was lacking to say the least so the motor mount was adjusted to direct drive but alas performance was not much better then everything stopped. The wires on the commutator had become unsolder end a common problem apparently I've now fitted a 3650 brushless stolen from an early attempt of a Huntsman 31 built for my Grand daughter which had replaced the Graupner 600, she is now 19 and interested in other things beginning with B. Having fitted the brushless a lot of vibration was experienced his was traced to a misaligned coupling,next outing will be with a huco type of fitting just to check it out roll on Thursday.

This was my first serious attempt at model boating and the hull a Swordsman fibreglass 34.1/2" was purchases 50 years ago from Radio Control supplies Isleworth in 1967 along with a used RCS Sequential radio. Over the years it's been powered by an ED 2.46 Racer a Merco 35 and finally my treasured OS61 VRM With a tuned pipe from Prestwich model boats. Now it's time for a a total rebuild so i,be decided to try twin contra rotating screws and brushed 600 motors. I'm looking to fit a superstructure akin to a Sea King. So far the hull has been stripped of all its hardware and all holes made good with resin and glass fibre tape. Currently making jigs to set up the two new propshafts More to follow

This is my aeronaut Spitfire. This was my second build following a lifetime of RC Aircraft. The kit was a joy to build with really nice quality wood and components with good instructions. Sourcing the outboard was a challange but Hobbyking had the solution. running on 2 x 7.4v Lipo and Turnigy water colled ESC this should go very well. Not had a chance to run it yet, but the bath test has shown no leaks and sits well in the water. Actionman and his clothing, helmet ect where sourced from eBay for about £12, bargin!
