A French Sardine Barque,plank and frame build. My first attempt and a nice challenge It was,I enjoyed every minute of this kit,starting at the end of January this year until now.Unknown to me at the time of buying the kit,the plans were all In French 😯 unfortunately I don't do French......none the less, I got over this using good old fashioned gumption and luck 😁
The boat has a 3 blade screw and Is driven by an MFA Torpedo 500 Motor
6v-12v with a Techniplus servo and 2 channel 27mhz transmitter.Awaiting less windy conditions then out for a maiden voyage.

s.v."ELKE" - Posted: 4 years ago by commodore
This model of a German North Sea FishingTrawler was built from a Graupner kit In January 1974. The crew are South American, the dog Welsh the owner English and her home port Is Maldon. She Is powered by a 6volt 400 motor coupled with a Viper 15amp controller and my Spectrum radio outfit. The 6volt 10 amp gel cell also acts as ballast.

s.b. Vigilant - Posted: 4 years ago by commodore
Scratch built to 1/24th scale this Is a model of a famous coastal barge built In 1904 at Mistley for the Horlock fleet. Sailed to victory In the1928 Thames Barge Match with Chub Horlock at the helm she won five "firsts" In her one race - a feat never achieved before or since. You can read about this exciting race In Chub's biography "Mistley Man's Log". S.b.VIGILANT can now be seen at Topsham In Devon where she Is under extensive restoration.

Hey there
Thank you so much for such a detailed answer Its helping me to hopefully decide what way I want to go. At the present moment I am beginning to leave the Idea of buying a fibreglass hull & Instead to try scratch build, the hull might be possible, but maybe the radio controled mast Is a little too far at the moment as I've been making boats just under a year now. I would love to see your burge afloat working sometime, sounds fantastic. Can I ask you If possible do you know of any diagrams of the hulls the same hull as you've built would be great but any barge's would be cool? Is the base of your barge flat bottomed, also do you know the finished weight of the model?
Once again thank you so much for you support It Is really helping me decide what I want to do 😀
Response by commodore on the 28th Jan 2015
Damon, I suggest you look at the website of AMBO - the Association of Model Barge Owners for more Information also the excellent site of Ivorbittle.co.uk where you will find all the Information you are likely to need about building a model barge. Incidentally Its the sails that are radio controlled on my model, not the mast! It Is flat bottomed but has a detachable keel weighing 3kg. The overall weight Is 6kg. Good hunting!

Thank you so much for the support means a lot cheers Damon

Mantua mississippI steam boat - Posted: 4 years ago by topperles
Bought this part built with prop propulsion . but Im converting It to paddle power.
im using a 600 motor with a 50/1 gearbox to power It , but I think I will have to change the setup as the noise Is too loud ,even though It will
Eventually It will have a 'Dixi' sound system Installed .
