Mini-12 by Ron Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 2 years ago
Sailing on the pond at the former Canterbury Golf Club, Port Perry, Ontario, Canada 🇨🇦 This is a Mini-12 Sailboat designed for sailing in weedy ponds. The rudder is attached to its shorter keel and weighs 12lbs+, and 42" length. It uses the Soling mast and sail area. I am still learning how to handle this boat but it is sure fun!

A great job is to see the well-done work of the right modeller.

Skeg on King Fisher by Dave M Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 2 years ago
Hi Grandpa Looking at the latest photos suggests the shaft and keel will be secure and if the prop is clearing the hull then the shaft may be long enough. You may need to add an extended coupling to allow for the motor. As I mentioned it would be a good idea to fit the motor, coupling shaft and prop now to make sure it all fits nice and square and runs freely. Don't forget you must have thrust washers at either end of the propshaft together with a locknut for both the coupling and prop.😁 I am in the Crewe club and Mark I believe sails with Etherow. We are both North West clubs so a few hundred miles from Canterbury. Good to hear you have a local modellers Club. Good building Dave

Brilliant model collection of the past RNZ Navy vessels. very realistic setting. Particularly like HMNZS Otago (F111). 👍

HMNZS Canterbury, HMNZS Waikato, HMNZS Taranaki by Dave M Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 3 years ago
Really lovely models sailing in a very realistic way. The shore line looks pretty rugged should you get too close! Thank you for sharing

HMNZS Canterbury, HMNZS Waikato, HMNZS Taranaki by admiral Sub-Lieutenant   Posted: 3 years ago
This video shows four New Zealand frigate models, at 1/48 scale, radio-controlled, HMNZS Canterbury leads, then Waikato, Otago and Taranaki. All models built from scratch, from Navy plans. Build time about 6 months each. 1970's era idea based on a photo of these ships taken sailing in Wellington Harbour.
