Happy Hunter by RNinMunich Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 13 days ago
Yep Mark, under the brand name roMarin. It's advertised on several German model supplies sites with accessory / fitting set, e.g. or direct from Krick. Cheers Doug 😎 PS cheaper at CMC but ONLY ONE LEFT! I have bought lots of 'stuff' from CMC and find them them very quick, helpful and reliable.

What to do???? by Dave M Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 2 months ago
Hi Kathy Sorry to hear of your loss. Are the models static (display only) or radio controlled models? Most charities are usually willing to accept donated models, and the RNLI may be a good starting point. If they are RC then you can advertise on this and other sites or even e-bay. Museums do sometimes accept particular models but they often have a vast collection already and many are in storage and not on public display. As a start you could take pictures of the models and post in the Forum under for sale and see if there is any interest. Don't post your e-mail address or telephone number to avoid getting spam. I usually just put a location like Cheshire UK to help identify your location.

Huntsman fittings kit. by Dave M Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 2 months ago
Hi Novagsio Do tread carefully if you intend to use Westbourne as there has been posts on this and other sites regarding their poor service level and lack of advertised stock. Canabus has a build blog Not sure exactly what fittings you require but Reade Models may be able to help as they supported fittings for many of the kits produced alongside the Precedent range. If you are looking for the window frames then you may need to fabricate from liteply, or if you have a 3D printer source have some fabricated.

Glazing help by RNinMunich Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 4 months ago
Hi Dave, Vielen Dank 👍 I suspected as much with the water jet, but then you had many many more to do than I have. I also tried the filling with resin, evidently the wrong sort as I could never get them completely bubble free 😡 Good tip with the syringe.👍 Your resin was obviously thinner than mine was. I don't trust cyano near water either, despite the fact that some are now advertised as 'waterproof', resistant maybee! With the acetate I was thinking of cheating and using strips! 😉 Cheers Doug 😎

Sea Queen refurbishment by BOATSHED Captain   Posted: 5 months ago
We need some pictures ?? Where did you get The Queen Dipped. I take it that's what you have had done. I have a Sea Queen and got her from a boot sale about 6 years ago.Still haven't started work on her. I have a few Aerokits, Sea Hornet, I made back in the 70's. Crash Tender, 48" Sea Commander, also from a boot fair Crash Tender 34" still in box unmade, 1994 when 50 were made on the 50th anniversary of the Aerokit model. When I saw it advertised in Model Boats grabbed one very quickly. Also have a Precedent Huntsman 31. Purchased that about 25 years ago. Had a 850 electric motor in her. Got a bit of a leak in the hull that's now sorted but she also needs a refurb now. As well as a Precedent Huntsman hull with no cabin top, going to make a top of some kind but different to the original. Hopefully will get round to them all one day. Plus quite a few other model boats.

Smit Nederland no 528 by Dave M Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 5 months ago
Hi Brimarboat Just looked on The Billing website and this model is advertised as: "All fittings included (e.g. position lights, anchors, life-belt, etc.)" They do sell all the electrical bits like motors, couplings, servos and Rc but the fittings should have been in the kit. Not sure of the scale but the measurements suggest 1:32 so you should be able to source suitable fittings. If it was a local shop I would be asking them to provide the missing parts Dave

Propshaft Bearings by muddy Captain   Posted: 6 months ago
Hello, A Company called Jotika, used to sell ball raced prop shafts. They advertise in model boat Mag's.. Or just google "Jotika model boats", but better still telephone them, as they do not list every item available.. Regards Muddy....

Couplings by muddy Captain   Posted: 7 months ago

Finishing by Westquay Captain   Posted: 7 months ago
I didn't realise that! Of course, if you live near Kings Langley you could pop in to see Mark Johnson and he'll actually MAKE the paint for you like he did for our historic wooden canal boat, Heather Bell. But I don't know if he's still trading from there. His company was Tramar Coatings. He advertised in Waterways World. I still have a tin of what he labelled Heather Bell Burgundy. It's on that wee Sea Urchin above. Lots of extra alkyd resins and finer pigments. He's a diamond. He used to call us on a Friday evening when his wife did arty things he had no time for and say, "Put kettle on". Half an hour later he'd turn up at the boatyard with fish and chips for three. We didn't have transport. Happy days. Martin

And now it is ESC time by none Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 7 months ago
I think Engel is a supply shop only. Maybe they do manufacture something else not advertised on the web site.

And now it is ESC time by none Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 7 months ago
So Far as payment goes You place your order They then make sure they have the amount you order in stock they then pack it and send you a Proper Pay Pal invoice. Through Paypal not a website.. You pay ....They check and then post.. Easy.. Never had any problems. If it is not in stock it is Not advertised...... Never seen a spare parts site is their one ?

Using old motors by Dave M Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 8 months ago
Hi Martin I see from your profile you are in a rural area so you may be OK with your rc gear. ESCs can be expensive but generally work well. You will need a brushless type and both Electronize and Mtronic should work. I suggest you look them up on the web and either send an e-mail or ring them up to see what they suggest for your motor. Both allow you to set the nul point to your tx and require the minimum of programming to set up. Perhaps your friend could visit his loft and let you have one of his Bob Bords. I have not seen any advertised for many years and I disposed of all I had to friends who were still using. Good luck and please keep us posted with your progress. I would be interested to hear how you fare with the old rc gear. Dave

Build Update by Pav403 Commander   Posted: 9 months ago
Hello all, Hope you are well? It's taken a while to get to where I am but I can start to see some real progress. I've managed to get the main superstructure complete, they are at a stage where they could be connected to the deck if it was ready. The Hull is now covered in a layer of Balsa, it does now need a lot of rubbing down so I can then look at applying a layer of fiberglass. I've not ordered this yet but I have seen it advertised at Cornwall Model Boats. If anyone has any suggestions on how to fiberglass I'm happy to hear any advise as this will be my 1st time. Good luck with your builds Regards Dave
