How many is to Many by RNinMunich Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 2 months ago
Wait for it Chris! Carry on at that rate and you'll soon be as bad as the rest of us - double parking them in duplex berths! 👍 Know what you mean about size. I'm looking for ways to lighten my 50 to 55" warships and have moved from 72 scale to 144 and 350 for the big guys - carriers and battleships 😉 Cheers Doug 😎

Decision made. 1875 battleship Dreadnought to 1/96. Hoping for NMM drawings. Have two photos so far off Wikipedia. Wish me luck.

1/35 Vosper MTB by Ron Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 4 months ago
Thanks for ALL your replies. I enjoy reading your suggestions and will take them under advisement as this project goes forward. I have three grandsons 7,5,2 so am not sure when the project will get underway. My first grandson asked me to build a Battleship, and finding the Revell 1/350 USS Missouri recently for $40 CDN this kit maybe built before the Vosper. See: bmpt.org.uk then "select a boat here" pick "MTB-71" Does anyone know "Clive Hampton" seen on page 2 along with Peter Baillie ? Has anyone built a 1/350 USS Missouri and motorized it?

TAMIYA. King George V. by RNinMunich Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 5 months ago
Hi Colin, what scale is it? If you Google 'Plastic Magic' you should get lots of example of this from 350 / 400 scale carriers and battleships down to 72 scale Vosper MTB, KM S100 / E-Boat etc. There are also several Plastic magic articles in Model Boats magazine. The general principles are always the same: lightweight miniaturised electronics incl. servos! Do a max payload test on the bare hull as the very first thing. Weigh the major superstructure assemblies and decks and subtract from max payload: that's what's left for electronics and battery! The kit props are generally useless, no pitch, so make your own out of tinplate or 0.5mm brass. can be a little oversize, no one will know😉 Prop shafts and tubes: 2mm OD / 1mm ID brass tube with 1mm silver steel or piano wire shafts. Couplings from shrink sleeve. will dig out some motor types and sources tomorrow, there are also some given in the Model Boats mag articles. That's where I found the Micron Radio tip😊 Can heartily recommend Micron radio for the smallest combination RX and ESC on one tiny board that I've ever seen! Talk to Andy Rutter, he offers excellent advice and will fit tiny connectors and pre-program the RX board to match what you want to do. He also has very very tiny servos which are ideal.👍 http://www.micronradiocontrol.co.uk/ Look under RC components - 'Deltang Ultra micro'. you ain't gonna get no teeny weenier! I went weak today 😲 and ordered a 350 scale Prince of Wales, to match my 350 scale Bismarck, Hood and Ark Royal. Battle of Denmark Straight here we come! Cost a tad more than 25 pence though 🤔 Good luck Doug 😎

PT109 Refit by RNinMunich Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 5 months ago
Re "It is believed PT-109 was painted a flat, dark green at Noumea, New Caledonia" Just found this- >>The Elco boats came from the factory painted overall "battleship grey." In the Solomons, however, the boats were often moored under or near shoreline trees and vegetation, and the grey color was too conspicuous. No official Pacific camouflage scheme existed at the time I show PT-155, and each crew repainted its own boat during the campaign with whatever materials it could scrounge. To one of PT-155's crewmen, J.M. 'Boats' Newberry, I am obliged for information on the vessel's colors during the campaign for Rendova and New Georgia islands. PT-155 and other boats of Squadron 7 & 9, including PT-109, were simply sprayed overall with a green paint from some local source, probably USMC. The green became lighter when applied, apparently due to the grey undercoat oxides. Over this, PT-155 was painted in random black patches. No standard pattern was used.

I have been to the park this year and the model display is still taking place and is well supported too.😎

3d printing by RNinMunich Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 7 months ago
Hm, LCM3 50 ft? ~95cm at 1/16, so I suppose you have to do the hull in 4 chunks! Finished for Christmas ?😉 Here some inspiration for the deco - http://www.modellversium.de/galerie/5-schiffe-ww2/1880-lcm3-... and here a real one - https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/0/02/Higgins_...

Firing Battleship at Wings & Wheels (UltraHD/4K) by RNinMunich Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 7 months ago
Hi Boaty, Apparently so! 😊 There was some discussion about this here a little while ago https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Peasholm_Park "Events Naval Warfare event The Naval Warfare event, Battle of Peasholm,[9] has been played out for half an hour three times a week during the summer season for over 80 years. The model boats used are mostly man powered earning the fleet the title of "The smallest manned navy in the world". All the boats were man powered, until 1929, when electricity was introduced, and now only the larger boats need to be steered by council employees. In the early days, the models were First World War battleships and a U-boat. Then, after the Second World War, the fleet was replaced with new vessels and the battle that was recreated was the Battle of the River Plate." http://www.discoveryorkshirecoast.com/Scarborough-Naval-Warf... Pics attached!😉 Cheers Doug 😎 (Don't get shot😡)

Firing Battleship at Wings & Wheels (UltraHD/4K) by boaty Commander   Posted: 7 months ago
This brings back memories to when I was a 7 year old in 1959. During the family holiday in Scarborough we visited Peas Holme Park and there was some action on the boating lake. It appeared to be an enactment of the Battle of the Atlantic with some very large models of ships of the era shooting it out. I recall that some of boats these sank and I have a vivid memory of a merchant vessel being shelled with flares being set off on the deck to simulate a direct hit. Does anyone have details, ie did the ships have a person on board or where they radio controlled and I also noted some wires above the lake which dive bombers ran along with imitation bombs Does this event still take place as I know that at one time persons wanted to stop it due to Germany now being one of our NATO allies. Boaty😎

Never seen an RC Battleship that actually simulates firing of its weapons. This was great to watch. Complimented by a submarine crash diving and surfacing!
