Fighting Cock - Posted: 4 years ago by Trillium
Fighting Cock was one of the fleet of North West Tugs (Liverpool Screw Towing and Lighterage Company) steam tugs, built by Cammell Laird In 1953. The model Is built on a Kingston Mouldings Sun tug hull, the superstructure Is scratchbuilt from styrene, with many fittings from Mobile Marine Models. The motor was 'rescued' from a mainframe computer data drive, and Is direct drive to the propeller. Power Is from 12V gell cell batteries with a speed control by EA Electronics. Both hull and motor were given to my father many many years ago, and the model was completed approx 7 years ago.

This Is The lass that can - Posted: 4 years ago by EAGLE
Hi
I'll try and get It right this time. This Is my granddaughters springer. 18x8 Inch, 4 Inch rudder, 540/1, 6v sla, with a35 three blade brass prop,she's only 4 so If you come to sail on our pond, give her plenty of room. The safety part of It ,is she has a 10mm flashing red led on the top. Sorry I dropped on my last post

Is she steam or electric?
Response by EAGLE on the 19th Apr 2016
Electric, 555 motor on 7.4 lipo, with a 35 mm three blade brass prop, the run times about 120 mins. She cuts through the water well, even going astern. Half of the plan was missing, so l can'nt say what the model is called.
Regards Dave

my aluminium barge a meter long - Posted: 4 years ago by 0151rogers
I made a wooden barge for my tugs to pull but found this too heavy so I asked my old firm to make me one In 4mm aluminium It has been fully seem welded and Is water tight .I got them to powder coat the whole barge In black matt and I just added the red paint. The top just slides off so I can change the cargo I just wish that I had not made this so deep as It sits high In the water unless I add a load of ballast am using a 10 ltr water container at the min and Its still work In progress

keep up the good work cheers and I do like the test tank
Response by circle43nautical on the 7th Jan 2018
BRAVO ZULU! I also love the test tank, I'm investing in a 12 x 6'er next spring. My latest builds are getting too big for the tub!
It's great that you get your kids involved; I feel that RC is by far the best
entertainment: Helos, planes, trains, autos & especially BOATS!
Heck with the video games I say!
My gr'daughter loves learning to fly the helo or me chasing her around with it. My goal is to get good enough to land on the tiny flight deck of my 1:48
USCG 210' Cutter while underway, without getting wet, of course.
HAVE A SAFE RC BOATING DAY!
