USS Chesty B Puller - Posted: 7 hours ago by blackheart
USS Chesty B Puller, I was a marine, 63 inches long, prebuilt by Aquacraft, engines installed, but no radio, batteries or speed control. Looks great in water. preforms like a real one, especially in still water, but we don't have much of that in Kansas.

105 PBR PIBBER. - Posted: 2 days ago by sandkb
U.S. Navy PBR 31Mkll. Patrol Boat River.
This is a vessel that I'm building from scratch. To achieve accuracy I will be using a Tamiha 1/35 scale kit and scaling that kit up to 1/9th scale for the vessel I am building. It will measure up to almost 1 metre in length.

Will you be putting a blog of your build on here for all to see. It will be very interesting. I cannot wait to see your progress of the build.
HMS EXETER - Posted: 14 days ago by JOHN
Here are pictures of HMS Exeter - I built her over a period of time plank on frame hull, covered in styrene to assimilate plating on the hull. The deck is all planked with individual planks - the guns are fully rotating and elevating but not firing :-).

I agree with Ron, a brilliant effort. Please publish more photos, specially close-ups of the detail. It looks magnificent.
Response by RNinMunich on the 9th Feb 2019
Dat wuz me Haig! 😎

John, great shame you didn't do a Build Blog 🤔
A vid of her sailing would compensate a little 😉
BTW: I have a Deans Marine 1:96 kit of HMS Manxman, Do you need an escort? 😉
Cheers, Doug 😎

Sorry Doug, How did I do that? But the sentiment remains.
Veron Vosper Target Towing Launch 28" - Posted: 3 months ago by VosperLaunch
I built this about 40 years ago, quite a rarity now I believe. Has not been in the water for about 30 years. I plan on bringing it up to date with speed controller and lipos as it used to use large heavy batteries and manual speed controller powered by servo. Hopefully out on the water next Spring/Summer in Hampshire/Dorset. 👍

USS Coeur de Lion - Posted: 3 months ago by rpbidgood
This ship was a lightship tender named "Coeur de Lion" that was armed and drafted into the Union during the civil war to counter blockade runners. This model is scratch built and is inspired by a paper model designed by Magnus Mörck. A sidewheel steamer equipped with the typical walking beam machinery, it was rebuilt to carry three guns. A line of iron plates along the gun wales added a measure of armoured protection. After the war it was returned to lightship service. On my model the paddles are independently driven, mainly because I have a Robbe Navy F14 transmitter with twin sticks. The walking beam is operated by a servo modified for continuous rotation. The original ship towed a barge that flew an observation balloon and could be described as the first 'aircraft carrier' the fifth picture shows the barge I have made - I hope one day to emulate the real thing by raising and lowering a suitable balloon. I have included some pictures of the rest of my paddle fleet.The 'Rachel Erin' is a freelance sternwheeler 'quarter wheeler' tug that uses a worm drive to the paddles. She does not steer well. The last ship is an enlarged version of Graham Goodchild's Santa Anna.

March'71 - Posted: 3 months ago by Sakibian
165footer job from Bangladesh navy. Armed with 1 37mm Chinese naval cannon (which I replaced with type 76F variant), 2 orlicons.
Actually used to patrol costal area here , also used in coast guard.
The class name is padma class patrol vessel, designed and made by BN.
Tried to make its rc version in 1:110th scale(I'm not great like you guys so please help me do better and suggest me where I can do better). Length 45cm, beam 7cm. Powered with dual 180.
The only thing I'm suffering is motor shaft connectoŕ. Those two universal joints I bought are not good enough for smooth rotation. They vibrates. So I used silicone tubes. Now I'm using latex rubber tubes .
Any suggestions or plan what I can use in peace!😆

Nice model, lovely detail. Where did you get the prop, keep up the good work.
Cheers Colin.
Response by RNinMunich on the 23rd Nov 2018
Now there's a coincidence!😲
I recently saw a documentary about this ship, I think was in the 'Lost Places' series. Took her months to sail to Oz. Not much left now 😭

Interesting prop, looks like the style used in Kort nozzles and water jets. Colin; Rabeosch & co do these types. See attached cat.
Very nicely done Sir, 👍👍 Any chance of a video of her in her element?? 😁

Cheers, Doug 😎
Ashes the scratch built Motor Torpedo Boat - Posted: 4 months ago by Sakibian
I found this hull at thingiverse last year. I printed the hull from a local shop and rest was handmade.
Firstly I bought a 2426 4200kv brushless 2-3s which was too powerful and too heavy for the boat size. The length is 38cm.
And the 30Amp esc was also too big for it's size.
After that I tried small 180 brushed motor with 20A brushed esc w/brake. It was perfect (still it's heavy😂).
The bridge and deck is made by 1.75mm pvc,torpedos are made of wooden pencil.
Small battery space takes a 2s 500mah lipo. 30mm 3blade propeller.

YouTube video link is here:

Excellent video Sakibian, well done👍
and you're very brave to sail such a tiny boat in waters like that 😲
Hat off Sir 😉
Cheers, Doug 😎
BTW: you should put this boat in your 'Harbour', just click on 'Boat Harbour' on the left of the Home page and then 'Add your model boat' at the top.
Response by Sakibian on the 6th Nov 2018
Happy that you liked the video , will try to post more videos.
And please don't call me sir haha? I'm still 23.
About the harbour , when I registered here I didn't find my country (Bangladesh), can you please do something while your an Admiral 😛
USCG POINT GLAS - Posted: 4 months ago by Inkoust
The 70-year US Coast Guard semi-deck. All-metal construction, 2 x MIG 480 motor, standard servo, model illuminated on two circuits. One light mast, position lights and cabin. The second lighting circuit in the hull of the ship and the outdoor lighting around the superstructure. There are no labels on the model yet, I'm waiting for the fabrication. Battery 1 x LiPol 4000 mA.
The total construction took me half a year. I made the hull made of laminate from my friend in Slovakia. The superstructures themselves are made of laminated boards. Part of the light bulbs are 6V lamps and the strobe with positional lights are the LEDs of the light triggering through two RC switches.😉

Yes, two 400 series motors and one 45A controller
Response by Inkoust on the 5th Nov 2018
Thank you very much Doug, I'm trying not to let go of it. Now I'm going to the ZOBEL class 142A submarine fighter. I will slowly finish my work again because I have been on the shelf for almost a year, and now I have started again. Winter will be long, so I have to take long winter evenings. Then I have the HMS TYNE still distributed in the shelf but here again I finish ZOBEL. I send greetings to Germany and I hope that the construction works well. Zdenek🤓

What did you use as rail stands? Those looks really beautiful!😍😍
