Built as a rescue boat, the Springer seemed to be the easiest to build as I am still a Novice and to while away the time after my knee replacement. Blew up some plans off the net to 23" length and 10" beam. Makes her about 1/12, I think. Built from 3mm ply in the main. Powered by the LRP 12v Truck puller and direct drive via 12" ball raced prop-shaft with home made oiler and 50mm 2 blade propeller to be changed to 3 blade asap. Led lights front, back and upper. Transmitter Turnigy TGY i6, Rx TGY iA6, Esc 320 amp with fan. Ballast yet to be added and should slow her to scale speed. Interesting build had some problems with upscaled plans from a pdf. Goes well in the bath but will post video as soon as I can get to the water.

ANOTHER ON THE WAYS: SALVAGED DUMAS ABS HYDRODYNE HULL, 35 X 10 X 2" ORIGINALLY IN THE AMERICAN BEAUTY KIT. MY INTENT IS TO SCRATCH BUILD FROM THIS HULL, A SINGLE-DECK TWIN SCREW LINEHAUL TOWBOAT WITH A FUNCTIONING TELESCOPING PILOTHOUSE. THEY ARE COMMON ON THE UPPER ILLINOIS RIVER WHERE THERE ARE FIXED OVERPASSES OR LOW OBSTRUCTIONS SPANNING THE WATERWAY. THE DES PLAINES AND CALUMET RIVERS IN THE CHICAGO AREA ALSO HARBOR THESE PUSHBOATS. THE PLAN IS TO KEEP HER LIGHT WITH A LOW CG, BUT POWERFUL ENOUGH TO PUSH SOME SCALE WEIGHT; I RECKON 775 MOTORS WITH 50MM 5-BLADE WHEELS WILL SUFFICE. THIS BOAT WILL BE STEERED WITH STANDARD RUDDERS, NO FLANKING RUDDERS, BECAUSE I WANT TO KEEP IT SIMPLE. (K.I.S.S.) I AM STILL BRAINSTORMING THE SYSTEM FOR RAISING/LOWERING THE PILOTHOUSE; POSSIBLY A SERVO WINCH & CABLE OR LINEAR SERVO. A PNEUMATIC RIG IS ALSO A POSSIBILITY I RECKON. SHE WILL BE WEARING THE ORANGE TRIM AND MIDNIGHT BLUE PAINT SCHEME OF MY SHOP-ILLINIWEK MARINE SCALE SHIPYARD. I USE LIGHTHOUSE LED's & MINI SWITCHES FROM THE SEATTLE AREA EXCLUSIVELY, 9V, 3MM. HARBOR MODELS 1.5V WORKING RADAR & MAYBE A 6V WORKING DECK CAPSTAN WILL BE ADDED. SHE IS MY 5TH ADDITION TO THE ILLINIWEK MARINE FLEET, AND WILL OF COURSE PUSH AHEAD THE MATCHING BARGES. GO FIGHTING ILLINI!

Purchased as an abandoned project, in fact not even started, price reflected this as it was cheap. It is a Robbe St Germain I believe no longer available. This is about the eighth model I have built and I reckon the most rewarding, lots of opportunities to personalise the ship. Lack of plans from the seller made the manufacture of this planked hull, a challenge. She looks lovely on show at home and is a dream on the water with no problem in very rough water. If you find one for sale go for it.

This is a aero-naut Classic and I would say that it's a second revision, as there has been changed several items, compared with the one my wife build 3 years ago. 1: The wind shield is now fixed in slots in the deck and not just glued to the edge of the cockpit opening. 2: There are now padding and leather for the seat included. 3: There are a few etched details for the instrumentation, steering wheel and step plates for the deck. 4: There are notches at the break off parts that will help in fixing the sides when gluing them in place. I used the same set-up as my wife's which is: Graupner BL Compact 260Z 1380KV with a Graupne ESC 18A FWD and REV. The shaft is replaced with a Robbe 4mm (no 1442) as the one provided is a flimsy part that will not withstand the motor set-up. Prop is a 33mm Graupner racing item. It will be running on LiPo 2S but if one need a rocket it can run on 3S. Great fun to build and performs great on the water

Credit for the design of this craft must go to Mote Park Club member 18 (Dave). I have not had the pleasure of meeting Dave yet but hope to in the near future. I looked at his Youtube entry and decided to build something very similar. Being a lone sailor most of the time, I thought it sensible to have some form of recovery craft. The craft was built in June 2017 and so far I have used it twice to recover other sailors craft! Worthwhile project and gives peace of mind when out on the lakes. Many thanks Dave! I added the camera so I could take some photos of my SeaSpray from a different perspective, I will upload photos as they become available.

Purchased as kit around 1972, fibre glass hull with ply deck and superstructure. Had many changes and refits over the years and was originally fitted with and OS Marine glow engine which gave good performance and was quiet! Changed to the MFA electric motor with ESC. Installed two LiPo batteries which makes the hull well balanced and allows the deep V hull design to plane as designed. Have designed and made two electro-magnetic lifting sticks which help me raise and lower the boat into the water. Age related launching aid!

This little Yacht was built as a RC boat from a modified plan for a free sailing pond yacht, Built by the Late Ken of our group who built 6 of these little craft but only completed 2 of them both in my ownership. Pudsey is a bit special as it represents the children in need charity which operates in the UK. Pudsey is a Yellow bear with a spotted eye patch which is represented in the boats livery and special sails. Sail's handmade by Ken's widow Joan. Not the fastest boat in my fleet but another popular with the public boat.

A wooden yacht that I am told is based on a fiesta (but presumably not the ford version) A fast and responsive sail and enjoyable. It had sticky back plastic deck accesses but I disliked them and made up balsa hatch covers instead, varnished in clear varnish they are more pleasing to my eye despite the lessening of water protection. can anyone recognise the design?

I love this 8 meter yacht,sail number K91 It has a great keel shape allowing weed to be ignored most of the time. Built by the southwater dabblers a while back and has been through a few owners before I brought her. Moves in the lightest of winds and copes with large gusts too. Am improvement on the basic model is the larger rudder allowing superb control (unless I get distracted!) Deck is lined in wood with a cabin top allowing access to the inner workings. I am running it on a acoms 27Mhz set as it has never let me down I can see little point in changing it to 2.4 Ghz The only thing I have done is added some portholes and a wheel to make it more realistic. As can be seen in last photo not all weed can be ignored!!!

Dumas kit - Jolly Jay - Built by Don Sutton, Metro Modellers of Toronto, Ontario, Canada 🇨🇦. Very sea worthy vessel, the tall bow takes waves on the lake very nicely. This boat is a steady sailing model which is why Don recommended it to me for teaching the grandsons to enjoy using it. Though boys still want grandpa to build a “fast” boat...maybe next year!
