My wife has 2 dolls houses which take up a space 9feet long 6feet high and 3 feet deep. Twice the space of 8 of my largest models, but I can take mine to shows and the sailing venues. She got jealous and got her own boats now, and between us we have 31, and now I have to takeher with me, ITS GREAT working on models together and sailing together.
Keep collecting and sailing, the Zwarte Zee looks great lucky begger.

Jose Miguel:
Looking at your knuckleboom crane, tells me that you are a great craft master.
I will be facing soon the same situation.
My crane is made in your homeland I believe.

Empire Raymond. - Posted: 2 years ago by lubberland
HI All, E.Raymond Is 36 Inches long x 9 Inches beam. She Is scratch built, plank on frame with 3mm ply deck. I made her from the Cervia plans and enlarged them to 36 Inches. She has a 540 type motor which I rewound with 80 turns of 30swg wire, for more torque. She has a 4 blade prop 60mm diam. and powered by a 6v 4amp SLA battery. I started the build last March, she's not quite finished yet, needs an anchor winch making and a set of tyres on the sides and other small details. I sail her at Holyhead Breakwater Park when I can.

Nice detailed model and really looks true to the type. Very Interested to hear your comment re rewinding a 540. When you say 80 turns Is this per pole? How much current does It draw as that's a good sized prop. I used to rewind some of my motors but never a 540. Any chance of seeing a video on the water?
Cheers
dave
Response by lubberland on the 24th Apr 2015
HI Dave, Yes that's 80 turns per pole. I've got a very short video but I don't know how to post It yet, I'll have a look. Regards Geoff. PS. I'm not sure about the current draw, I'll get back to you on that one.
Response by lubberland on the 24th Apr 2015
HI Dave, The current draw Is 0.5amp free and 2amp nearly stalled (burnt fingers). also a Viper 15amp ESC fitted, regards Geoff.
