    New knee, outdoor trials begin.
    Hi fellow boaters, tomorrow is the day I have the
    staples
    out on my new knee. And starting Monday at knee clinic, so far so good, movement is good enough to allow me to walk with my crutches, most of the post operation swelling is gone now, a bit of bruising still, only a few painful reminders when I try to stretch or bend it. But should be back modelling very soon. Looking forward to getting my dad's old sea commander ready for the taycol supermarine being restored by Doug in Munich. Well that's all for now folk's, Cheers Colin.

    New knee, outdoor trials begin.
    Doug, sounds like a really professional job, I only hope that you get as much enjoyment from the stuff I sent you, I know that you will with the KG V. Just got back from an epic morning, surgery had screwed up, no qualified staff to remove the
    staples
    , had to wait till they located a surgery the other side of the town with a qualified nurse, then nearly an hour in heavy traffic I arrived and still had to wait another 30 minutes till the nurse called me, on removing the dress it was obvious that there was a problem with the operation, it was very inflamed and very hot, the
    staples
    were almost hidden by the swelling along the scar site. They had to get a second nurse to assist as they had to dig out the
    staples
    , as they came out it started weeping out yellow gunge, extremely painful, and they have had to put me on antibiotics to try and clear it up. They don't think I can have physiotherapy until it is clear. At least the pain is easing now. Cheers Colin.

    Morning Doug, thanks for the motor work, I think the box would be best, it looks so much tidyer. Just off to get the
    staples
    out, will let you know how it goes today. Cheers Colin.

    Hey Colin, I've got a staple remover ๐Ÿ˜‰ you could nip over here, I'll whip the
    staples
    out and you can take the Supermarine back with you! ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜ Seriously though folks๐Ÿค“; Great news Colin, esp. after all this time and pain ๐Ÿ‘ Very happy for you ๐Ÿ˜Š Wasn't kidding about the motor. I'll be updating the 'Resurrection' blog soon. Attached are a few preview pics of the final tests run at the weekend. She's chuntering along at 11.1V (equivalent to a 3S LiPo) drawing about 1.3A off load. I've made up a set of connecting leads and set it up to run ahead with an RH prop as requested. I've assumed your ESC will have bullet connectors!? FF I've added a Red/Green LED to indicate if it should be running forwards (clockwise) or backwards. BTW: I wouldn't recommend full astern on any more than 7.4/8.6V, she don't like it ๐Ÿ˜ฑ Shall I put it in that natty plastic box? Or will you just screw it to a wooden frame? All the best to you both, Cheers, Doug ๐Ÿ˜Ž

    Dropping down aft from the boat deck are the tow hooks, why there are two hooks, I have no idea, but that's what is shown on the drawing. Taking the dimensions from the drawing the main part was made up of plasticard and bits of brass tube, the two hooks were made from brass sheet and soldered together, the hoop that these run on goes through the superstructure and is fastened with nuts on the inside. To the side of the tow hooks is an exhaust with silencer, this was made out of aluminium on the lathe with bits of brass tube, also on this platform are two coal hatches, again made out of plasticard and wood with painted

    as handles.

    Glad to have a staple gun on hand as it came in handy to close up the chine seams where my clamps could not reach. The
    staples
    get removed once the glue dries. Any suggested filler material along the seams?

    Scaling up Plans
    I recently got tug plans at 1:96 scale. I went to the local
    staples
    office supplies store and a kindly lady enlarged the 4 plans on an A0 copier and that gave exactly 1:48 scale I needed on two A0 sheets for ยฃ3 a sheet. A bargain. Regards Ralph

    (Tug Boat) Sir William Hoy. (New photo under construction)
    I was lucky to have found someone, who had a copy of the SAR&H Durban coal fired Tug plans of the Sir William Hoy, which plans came in the form of lines at 1:48 scale and the plans at 1:96 scale (thanks to Harold in the US for his coping and posting these to me) and local
    staples
    store, who have a A0 copier, which did an excellent job of enlarging the plans to the required 1:48 scale. This model is 45 inches. Update 1st October 2014 Now Built and painted as in the Photo, Fittings and Engine casing still to be completed. (Motor: MFA919D Geared 1:6) (7/10)

    I used the extremely good drawings in the plans sold on the model boats magazine shop web site. As you say, easily copies at
    staples
    so can even be used as a template when copied. Good luck with your project.

    Nice job I have bought on the internet the plans and drawings for the same model (wish I hadn't) the drawing is a photo copy which gives you the detail , the templates are copys of the cut out pieces set out on drawing paper and is not accurate enough for someone who is building for the first time. Someone making a fast buck !!! if the would have copied before cutting up template would have been a better idea. BE carfull on the internet you newbees. Aยฃ3 per copy at
