Celia Fishing Boat - Posted: 5 years ago by jelley_baby
HI This Is a Celia, I think, It was a caldercraft kit but am not sure. It Is running on a 545 motor at either 6volt or 7.2volt with a 35mm 3blade brass prop. Its performance Is about right for the scale and type of boat. It sails at the Lake used by the Cwmbran Club. I bought It last year at the Shepton Mallet Show.

Yes this was a Caldercraft kit I built one and sailed It but not much room under the decks for your radio and batteries but really sailed well when set up right

its a vosper 100ft patrol boat called HMTS Courland Bay. regards steve
Response by kevinsharpe on the 18th Sep 2013
The model Is from a 'Veron' kit now produced In the sixties to early seventies. veron no longer exist. She was a Vosper fast patrol boat of the Trinty class. I am currently restoring one which has twin electric. The model was originally designed to run on a single screw powered by a 10/15cc Ic engine. Copies of the plans of the model are available on e bay. Fleetscale also prosecutor an accurate drawing of the vessel along with a grip hull.

Modified Southampton Tug - Posted: 5 years ago by jelley_baby
I hate leaving models as standard, the Southampton Tug a RTR model, needed to be more manoeuvrable, so removed original 27Mhz receiver and fitted Two Electronic speed controllers one for each motor, and a 2.4Ghz receiver. The model will now turn In Its own length and has become very good for controlling In small spaces. Will change the standard motors next for something with a little more pulling and pushing power. It runs all morning on a 1 x 6 cell AA Nimh 2700Mah battery pack.

Plank on frame built many years ago. Not of a specific vessel but a representative of the classic Scottish boat of the 70's. based on a stretched "Launch Out" plan.

Rust Bucket - Posted: 5 years ago by Colin H.
Believed to be scratch built, evidence of old 1 gallon REDEX oil container forming main deck, bits of Mecano used as stiffening and support.
It has a Basset Lowke model 1461/u (motor, stern tube, prop shaft and prop) Set.This dates from the mid 1930's and would have cost 7/- Shillings for those old enough to remember, that would have been abut a day and a half's wages. The photo's show what the motor looked like as It came out and then after cleaning and testing, and yes It runs very smoothly In forward and reverse, from 3 volts up to 12 volts, seems to be quite good at 6, so will probably use when rebuild complete.
As you will see from photo's there Is a lot of restoration to do before sailing again.
Now you've stopped laughing, can you Identify the type of ship It's meant to be, I thought a Coaster.

Billing Polar Trawler - Posted: 6 years ago by jelley_baby
I have had this boat for about 5 years, so thought that It would like a day out. Sailing at Cwmbran August 2012. Its a Billing Polar Trawler, not now made but at about 32 Inch long Is a managable size. Twin 385 motors 35mm 3 blade brass props. and running on a 7.2 volt 3700 mAh NiMh viper speed controller and a 2.4 Ghz RC It will potter around all morning on one battery. I originally ran It on a 6Volt 4Ah Gel Cell and 27 Mhz setup.

HI I have just been given one of the above trawlers. I cant find plans anywhere. If possible can anyone offer me up close pics or links to plans etc as I have considerable repairs to make Inc - funnels,masts and engines. Any help would be gratefully received.
Many Thanks Rob
Response by jelley_baby on the 3rd Jan 2013
HI Rob If you have an email address that I could use I have photos of the boat, a friend at my club Is also restoring one so I have just taken some photos but I could take some more of the areas that you require easily, sadly I do not have a plan myself as my polar was bought on Ebay at least 5 years ago and I had to work from a billing catalogue photo and some photos from old Model Boat Magazines. Hope to hear from you If that will help.
Graham

"port Adelaide " - Posted: 6 years ago by Powdermonky
HI shipmates, here,s a few shpts of the "Port ".
She,s a 1/80 scale scratch built cargo ship of the Port line company from around the 1950,
A ship this size requieres quite a bit of balast, I use water, It takes around 40 lds to get her sitting right, this Is pumped In and out with a submersible caravan water pump.
Most of the fittings are resin castings.
there are a few more bits to finnish off but could not resist the chance to try her out on the Chasewater pool.
