Car Boot RIB project - Posted: 7 years ago by chrislang
Another project as I found a model RIB at our local car boot sale ( probably for action man or simular ) and thought It might be worth modifying.
It floats In the bath and now has a Mtronics Vision 500 motor and ESC, and servo steering via a rudder mounted In the dummy outboard.
More after sea trials!

Yeoman / HMM - Posted: 7 years ago by kalamunda
Two Yeoman / HMM boats- both salvaged from e-bay and thought to be at least 55 years old. each having had most of Internal structure removed. no drawings available so had to guess where 'bits' were needed. The smaller 'Minx' Is powered by a brushless Turnigy Aerodrive SK286. The 'Wavemaster' has a brushless KD Thumrun 2387/18 and an EZ Run 18a ESC - supplied by Giantcod. First runs at Crealy - 29th July.
Thanks to Ian for the photos.

Very nice, I've not seen the cute little Minx before but have a Wavemaster which Is used regularly. Mine was built around 1953, originally with an ED racer IC engine but now running with a Darke Horse 700, It's a real classic design of Its time and a favourite of mine, there are some pics somewhere on the site.
Response by kalamunda on the 1st Aug 2011
Thanks for your comments - I have seen the pics of your Wavemaster and they encouraged me to finish this one. I have seen an advert for the Yeoman Minx from around 1960 and the retail price was 21/6 - about ÂA£1.08 In todays money.
Response by thelegos on the 1st Aug 2011
That's great to hear, there seem to be a few more out there now. It was launced In 1952 at a price of ÂA£3 12s 10p, designed by Les Rowell when he was at Hammersmith Model Makers (HMM) just a couple of years before he left and started Aerokits In 1954. I shall look out for a Yeoman Minx!

HMM Wavemaster - Posted: 8 years ago by thelegos
I took advantage of some nice weather to take my Wavemaster out for a spin this afternoon. She's around 58 years old, I bought her from the son of the original builder and have tried to keep It as original as possible so converted from IC to electric, repainted the lower hull, new stainless Inner propshaft, made some handrails and fitted the lights. It was very dirty but has cleaned up a treat. I'm running a Darke Horse 700 with a 7.2v 4300Ah battery for these pictures but have the facility to use either one or two sticks, run time today over 30min with some to spare so I'm well pleased! It's a gorgeous classic boat.
