Wahine - Posted: 2 years ago by Trillium
Wahine was a car passenger ferry of the Union Steamship Co. of New Zealand, and completed by Fairfields in 1966. She was lost in a major storm in the Cook Strait in 1968 with the death of 53 people. The model is substantially scratch-built with some fittings purchased. It is driven by two Graupner Speed 500 motors powered from two 6.6V 3200mAh LiFe batteries. It is fitted with twin stern and a single bow rudders, and bow and stern thrusters as on the original. The smoke effect is provided by a Steam Master Unit.

It is 1:144, or 1/12 inch to 1ft. It is close to N gauge model railway scale, which helps when needing figures for passengers and crew.

HI not the words best person for righting but yes I will sort a video out tonight and post it thanks for your response dave
Response by Trillium on the 13th Mar 2016
Scale models are the only way to see in 3 dimensions how long-gone vessels looked, so it's great to see a unique model that represents this class of vessels.

And great to have it showing its paces.

Well done.
Response by alaskamarinemodeling on the 10th Apr 2016
Great job of restoration! It's a fantastic model.regardless of type.

Great looking model. We had a member who built a similar model and fitted it out with dolls house fittings.
Have you sailed your model?, if I remember correctly the turning circle was not good.
Response by Deswelham on the 11th Mar 2016
Yes have raided my granddaughter's dolls house for bits and bobs. Sails well and has the turning circle of a real container ship 😊 . Great fun though

Grace of Harwich - Posted: 2 years ago by 15Weyb
Grace is my first and favourite rc model. I bought this for a bargain £70 on ebay, requiring a little care and attention. She sails beautifully and looks good in the water. She sits low and looks like a trading barge from days gone by.

American Enterprise - Posted: 2 years ago by sharpy1071
A winter project for a friend who hasn't the resources to build, so I helped him out. nearly ready for the lake. Twin brushless motors/ESC's all water cooled and a few interior exterior lights.

Thank you, yep put it on the water and another ESC packed up! Replace the ESC and it went very well but need adjustment of the batteries. Now it goes on the plane at a very scale speed. No need to go to fast as it is a working boat after all. Will try and get a video but it has gone home now so I will ask the owner to get one.
Response by figtree7nts on the 24th May 2016
Great looking American Enterprise, I remember 30 yrs ago or so I had the kit but lost it during a move. what a shame such a great looking boat! 😭
Response by sharpy1071 on the 24th May 2016
Thank you figtree7nts. It is a great looking boat there is no doubt about it, wish it were mine, handles very nice at speed and slow.
