Fender addition by Novagsi0 Commander   Posted: 3 days ago
Mum went to the international model boat show and was amazed at the prices. She also thought they were rubbish for the money, her words not mine. She was a professional dress maker. So will update when there done, they take a couple of hours to Knit each one and the front fender all day. I think they look good, the small fenders are filled with a wine cork shanfered both ends on a lathe (thats the bit i do) to maintain the shape and a small weight added so they hang right. Note the cork means they will float if one gets bashed. Regards stephen.

The 'Beast'...a miracle of geometry by Dom of Essential RC Commander   Posted: 4 days ago
I liked this. Designed purely from very old pictures of the full size apparently. Respect to the builder for the creation of this vessel. Filmed at the International Model Boat Show 2017.

46" Firefloat What Motor/Battery by jarvo Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 4 days ago
HI JJ. Your question about a safety bag, Damaged / overcharged lipo's can catch fire, think of the Boeing scandal that grounded the fleet last year. Charging in a safety bag is advised the bag is fire retardant material, which will contain any problem. Your remarks about the boat not coming onto the plane is down to the weight of the battery, my fireboat started with 7.2v NimH packs 1 for each motor, Graupner 700bb's, good cruise but not quick, but short run time, 10mins. I have re-wired to allow 3s lipo's, but not had chance to test it yet, but should go like stink. With a fast hull, weight is important, 4 x lipo packs, 1kg, half the weight and possibly 6 times the power delivery. In your first post you mention 600 motors on 6volts, they are probably rated at 8.4volts, same as my 700's hence the lack of performance, also the battery, at 12ah it should last about 30mins, was it fully charged??? and is it showing at least 6volts, ie not got a duff cell??? Canabus, in his post described an ideal set up with brushless motors, 1600 watts is just over 2 hp, 750 per horsepower so you can see the difference in performance with different motors and battery set up's

Ellesmere Port model boat lake by Dave M Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 9 days ago
There isn't Paul. The E Port club used to sail in the basins at the Boat Museum but this facility has, I believe, been withdrawn as well as the March Boat Show facility. The club was sailing at (I believe) the Vauxhall site in a temporary pond and there is talk of a March show at the former Hooton airfield site. Perhaps one of the club members could post details in the Model Boat Club Section, Please?

More handrails fitted by Novagsi0 Commander   Posted: 10 days ago
Following a visit to the International boat show for bits and pieces I took advantage of x-factory rubbish on the TV to escape the wife, and do some more on the boat. Handrails to the rear in progress. Interesting tip I bought some 3/32 steam nipple fittings which after running a 2mm drill to the point allow my 2mm brass wire to push through. The idea being a nice finish to the bottom of the handrail and a secure mounting hole so the hand rail can be removed if needed. see picture you will get the idea the ladder one is a lager size 1/8 fitting for welding wire. Just need to add the cross pieces and solder up.

The different model lifeboats were very interesting I did not realise there were so many .

International Model Boat Show by Novagsi0 Commander   Posted: 10 days ago
Good show, I attended Saturday. Got a load of bits and pieces for my huntsman was certainly better than the model engineers show a few weeks ago.

Forgot to mention that the Record scroll saw has a 5 year guarantee which is very good. Also went yesterday and got the other bits and pieces I need and a bigger Permagrit for sanding the keel and chines to shape. As said was very good and some fantastic builds.

International Model Boat Show by tidtug Commander   Posted: 13 days ago
Went today brilliant show as usual . A good stand with lots of power tools and drill stands . The other addition this year was a layout for Tamya lorries,yes the whole show is worth it if you can make it.

Yes👍 Maldon Blackwater Model Boat Club is attending as usual we are coming by coach 😁😁

International Model Boat Show by ChrisF Petty Officer   Posted: 14 days ago
Yes it can be difficult deciding on a particular make/model. I found that when looking around the £100 mark that they all seem very similar and there looks to be some badge engineering going on. With my original budget I was disappointed to find that the DeWalt scroll saw isn't imported into this country for some reason as it gets very good reviews and I have a number of their tools amongst my DIY stuff. Meanwhile I have a big box in the car the contents of which I shall try out at the weekend.

Hi Chris, I too have looked at reviews, and videos of scroll saws. Trouble is nothing suits everyone. Some love, and others not so keen on all,of the choices. So I reckon it’s upto me to dip my toe in somewhere. I can collect from machine mart as there is one up the road from me. I am hoping to get my three power tools for around £300. Fingers crossed! Yep the boat I’m going for is the Dave Melbourne Huntress in that very Mag. Hope I bump into you Friday as I will be on my own all day. Regards Glyn.

International Model Boat Show by ChrisF Petty Officer   Posted: 15 days ago
Hi Glyn - I'm going on Friday as well to get the last of the materials I need for my Swordsman build. I've recently got around (at last!) to making space in a spare bedroom and have set up a worktop. I was going to buy a Proxxon scroll saw but it was the more expensive DS 460 one at over £300, but decided in the end that for the amount of use it's going to get and relatively thin timber/plywood to be cut that a cheaper one would do. After some research and reviews on YouTube etc. I decided on the Record 16V for £125 which I ordered from Machine Mart. Got the call today to say it's in so will pick up tomorrow. Is the Huntress the one featured in Model Boats? Chris

International Model Boat Show by glyn44 Chief Petty Officer   Posted: 15 days ago
Ok guys, got all that. Need a saw that will do a bit more than 8mm though. A variable speed saw sounds more versatile for different materials. Thanks for the pointers. Trouble with screwfix is you can’t get a hands on before you buy.
