Wild Rose was originally a steam launch with Pelican V twin and home built vertical fire tube boiler. She is now converted to electric and has the addition of a smart striped awning. I designed the hull with a program called ply Boats years ago. She has a double chine hull form and is built with 6mm ply frames and 1.5mm ply skins.

This is Vic Smeeds Mistral published some time in the fifties I think. The original drawing was for an 18'' boat but I have enlarged to around 23'' giving a 1:16 ish model. The hull is Lite Ply frames and skins and the trim is mahogany- but it may be a bit heavy. She looks great on the water- and goes like a fast electric if I choose- which I don't! Wish I'd built her a bit bigger now.

This is Vic Smeed's Veleta published some time in the early sixties and enlarged about 1.5 times. I'm not sure the enlargement was a good idea but she's still a pretty boat. Construction was balsa sheet and Lite Ply covered with nylon and Poly C water based resin. I would always use epoxy again in the future-as this material is not very tough. The drive is via turned brass pulleys and O ring giving a very quiet and positive drive.

I built 'Dunlin' from Harold Underhill's plan for a Police river launch and elected to use the lines for a three foot model. I originally installed a Caton twin cylinder steam engine and Cheddar Puffin boiler but reverted to electric some while ago. The hull is mahogany plank on 6mm ply frames. She weighs about 25lb and has great presence on the water.

Westbourne is a Port of London Authority steam Tug from the Caldercraft Mini-Fleet Range - it is 1:48 scale. This model was discontinued a few years ago but I did manage to purchase a brand new boxed one via ebay a couple of years ago. It has taken me about 18 month to complete but only working off and on for some time until recently when I decided I needed to get a move on with it. The hull has limited access for the RC, batteries, steering servo and motor but I have managed to fit it in neatly with access to all parts, I have fitted batteries on both sides amidships in the hull acting as both ballast and stability. I have now run my tug on our club pond and she sits perfectly on the water and no other ballast required. I originally installed a geared motor at 2.5:1 and I thought that the tug was sailing a little faster than I wanted so I changed to my 6:1 setup but the speed and control was poor, so I went back to my original set up. On the whole I am very pleased at how she has turned out. Now started on my Northlight Clyde Puffer.

Double cabin cruiser of approximately 1:20 scale inspired on 40 and 43 footer Uniflite, Viking, Hatteras and Chris Craft models built during the 70s and early 80s. Using a Krick Lisa M model kit as a platform, I tried to reach as much realism as possible. The boat is equipped with a 9v lights system and an Mtroniks multicylinder diesel sound system.

This is my from scratch attempt at making a hopper barge for towin. I got bored one day and pulled out some wood and a pencil and ruler and laid out the parts cut and glued them togeather and well its a start. I will be makeing an insert for it so I can tow drinks and beers out to our friends while they float around on the lake.

This is the tito nerI by graupner. I got this boat with all the extras like the motors z drives deatail kits off a friend of mine who gave up on the build just after glueing in a few inner hull part. I have the power distbution block and the pump for working fire moniters as well as a full lighting setup. Hope to have it in the water for camping season so I can tow my grandkids around on a tube and haul out drinks to my wife and her friends on my hopper barge.

Scratch built from original (damage control) plans. Great looking model, a bit top heavy though. If I "land" the aircraft to shore, it sails much better. Looks good on the lake.

This is an all-metal Motor Torpedo Boat, built in 1946. Its running gear is absent and has fixed rudders. This will be an interesting project starting with the removal of the cracked paint... Has anyone else got one of these?

A Lesro air boat kit designed some years ago for I believe, IC engines. Then also brushed electric. I started off brushed, then brushless, but always found it top heavy, moderate speed and difficult to control in a wind. Now fitted with 2 x 64mm EDF units, twin rudders. It is around 5" lower than previous. Not a fast electric by any means, but good enough for now. may upgrade to more blades at some point.
