Scratch built Orca from movie "Jaws" Built from one 2 x 4! " We're gonna need a bugger boat" seeing my models people often ask if its a kit, and how much does it cost. Here I am holding the kit, one piece of wood, price $1.85 Here is the Orca in its carrying case. I found that this kind of carrier works well for me. It allows me to carry the boat in one hand leaving the other free to open doors, etc .It also makes it easy to put the boat down and pick it up again and protects it during transport.

Name: KuK TB IV Posted 15th Mar 2017 by Dainesh Score: 10
Specs Power Source Control Drive Thrust



Kaiserlich und Königlich (KuK) TB IV Recently built scale model boat (1:50). It is a fine art work. Length: 884mm Beam: 95mm One 3 blade propeller. Main armament: 2 45cm torpedo tubes, 2 4.7cm/L44 Skoda rapid firer. Crew: 20 people Speed:27.5 knots In 1905 the Austrian Naval Technical Committee presented three different designs for a 110t coastal torpedo-boat, mainly differing in the propulsion system (VTE or turbines). Having insufficient experience with turbines, a final VTE-propelled design with oil-firing was presented in 1907. To compare it with foreign technology, Krupp, Schichau and Yarrow were asked for competitive designs, all of which turned out to be inferior. Initially STT was ordered to build 8 such boats, but this was reduced to 6, because Danubius had to participate. When the older torpedo-boats lost their names in 1910 in favour of arable numbers, these units became in consequence Tb 1-Tb 6. The boats were surprisingly seaworthy up to sea state 5-6, and during the war they saw active service on escort, minesweeping and anti-submarine dunes.

Scratch built from Marine Modeller plans. One sail drum servo for the main and self tacking jib. A sail arm servo for the staysail and foresail. An extra servo to allow tension on the upper trisail. The bowsprit is an additional 10" on the overall length of the model. For RC sailing I have a 2.5kg detachable keel and rudder extesion ( shown in the photograph). All the deck winches are built from old clock parts. The lee boards are also functional and work in conjunction with the forward head sails and the sailarm servo. For transportation the top mast can be lowered and the bowsprit raised.

This is a Failmile 'D' MTB. This version and number were operated by the 65th Canadian MTB flotilla in the English Channel. I made the model as this version as my Uncle was one of the crew. This model hull is built from scratch in the in the same was the real boats were using double diagonal planking. The propulsion is with 4 props paired using a dual ESC by Action Electronics and 2 11.1v LIPO batteries. These MTB were powered with 4 Packard 4M-2500 Engines with a hull speed of 34.5kts. Armament:- 4 x 18" torpedo's, 2 x 6pdr Mkv11 guns, Twin 20mm Oerlikon gun, 2 x twin Vickers Machine guns on powered mounts, as well as other smaller machine guns on the bridge.

I started building this boat about 15 years ago and still have not finished it.I have to do all of the finer work on the decks and mast. I just added a water pump last month to keep the motor cool . The force flow system did not work with little or no water getting through and the motor and controller got very hot after a short running time. I have not given the boat a long high speed run yet but test in my swimming pool seems satisfactory with the pump putting through a large volume of water
