RAF rescue launch shape by RNinMunich Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 23 days ago
Hi Marky, don't know where you saw that (Eagle Eye😉) but IF correct then so is your maths👍 BUT: if correct then 20" x 24 = 480" or 40 feet?? Pretty small rescue launch! 😲 Then again; wadda I know? Taking 68feet as an average of the various HSL versions (excluding the Fairmile) 68x12=816, 816/20=40.8 scale. Therefore at 30" the scale would be ~27:1. Cheers Doug😎

Baking soda triggered some old memories, who else remembers the little plastic subs we used to get in Cornflakes boxes? 😉 I once toyed with the idea of making a bigger version, ca 10 -12 ". more important 'stuff' got in the way. Forgot all about it .... until now 😉 Yep, off the bat I could imagine a couple of ways of triggering them; there are loads of mini pressure switches on the market, or a simple diaphragm at one end of the can coupled to a micro switch or mechanical trigger. Adjustment would be very sensitive due to relatively small changes in water pressure in the first foot or so of wet stuff. Any deeper would be a waste of time, unless you only want to entertain the fish😲 Might also go off on the surface if the can hit the water diaphragm first😡 Whatever, lot of work (and expense?) for a one way trip🤔 Anyway, with my 1/72 scale DCs, approx. 12x5mm, I would need to resort to nano technology. But we should never stop dreaming! I've seen model patrol boats launching solid fuel missiles from the stern deck so 'Nothing is impossible' - that's maybe why I drive a Toyota😉 Cheers Doug 😎

Soldering 1/12 Scale Brass Railings by Ballast Commander   Posted: 1 month ago
Thanks Ken ! At first I was really nervous but as I did loads of dummy runs I got more confident but I made some mistakes !!!

Your soldering looks a lot better than mine Alan. Well done. As the saying goes,," practice makes perfect ". That's probably my downfall, I only solder when I have too. Cheers for now Ken

Thanks Ken I already did and I watched the video's time and time again before I attempted what you see above !!! It's alright Marky ! Mine has a new rubber flex and has been overhauled by an electrician, thanks for your concern!!! I found I was really comfortable with it and my confidence grew with every solder !

Hi, if you look on u tube, you will find lots of videos of how to solder, the thing is,, they make it look so easy! I couldn't solder for toffee, until a visit to utube. Have a look, you will be surprised. Cheers Ken

Flex looks a bit dodgy ,but if it does the trick "it does the Trick" cheers Marky

First class soldering job.

Soldering 1/12 Scale Brass Railings by Ballast Commander   Posted: 1 month ago
Thanks for your feedback and compliments gents. I seem to have had a bit of luck not being daunted by the trepidation that soldering brings !!! My Uncle builds dolls houses and has just given me an order for some brass bedsteads !!! He didn't mention if it would entail a coin of the realm being passed across my palm but the fact he wants me to make some is praise and enough reward for me !!! 😊😉

That's a Master Class in soldering, fair play.
