Too Powerful Brushless ? by RNinMunich Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 18 days ago
Hi Mark, all good stuff, as ever from you👍 Just one thing; Prop Shop has ceased production after the fire they had. Probably only still trading until rest stock is sold and the business then wound up. 🤔 So I would go straight to Raboesch (or Krick here in Germany) for cast props and suitable matched shafts. You can download the whole catalogue from their site to browse at your leisure 😉 This is the announcement on the Prop Shop site Cheers Doug 😎 "Welcome to the Prop Shop web site. AS YOU ARE PROBABLY AWARE A FIRE IN APRIL 2017 SERIOUSLY DAMAGED OUR PRODUCTION FACILITIES. SINCE THEN WE HAVE BEEN NEGOTIATING OUR CLAIM WITH OUR INSURANCE COMPANY. JUST BEFORE CHRISTMAS A SETTLEMENT WAS REACHED. REGRETTABLY THE AMOUNT WE HAVE BEEN PAID IS NOT SUFFICIENT TO ENABLE US TO FULLY RE-ESTABLISH OUR PRODUCTION CAPABILITY. WE MUST ADVISE THEREFORE THAT THE DECISION HAS NOW BEEN TAKEN FOR "PROPSHOP" TO CEASE TRADING. WE WANT TO THANK ALL OUR LOYAL CUSTOMERS FOR THEIR SUPPORT OVER MANY YEARS AND SINCERELY HOPE YOU FIND SUITABLE ALTERNATIVE PRODUCTS THAT MEET YOUR NEED. REGARDS, PROPS SHOP TEAM January 2018" 🤔

I was given a copy of Dunkirk for Christmas but not got around to viewing it. You might spot some modern buildings and modern boats in the background at Weymouth.

Donations - Thank You by Fireboat Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 1 month ago
Hi All, Just a quick thank you to everyone who donated in 2017 and so far in 2018. It's only with the kind contribution of members this website keeps going. Advertising helps, but it doesn't fully cover the costs of hosting, domains, mobile apps, security certificates and upkeep on its own. A few things on here are due an overhaul again, usually I take time out at Christmas to overhaul sections of the website, but this Christmas break was too hectic, so the website had to take the back seat (or the stern perch). Going forward it's still a life project that continues for me. The website will turn 11 this year, it's come a long way in that time. Originally just static pages, people would email photos of their boats and I'd manually put them online. Laughably unsustainable these days if that still happened, so I must thank you all for keeping the ship sailing, the engines firing and the masts raised! I'd still like to overhaul the website, so amongst juggling a job and other commitments I will be working on this. If you haven't yet but would like to do so, please consider donating. The average donation last year was £8 - so an even bigger thank you to those who stretched a bit further. Donations can be sent securely through PayPal – just click the amount you’d like to donate in the left side panel on the website or at the bottom of the home tab on the mobile app. If your local currency isn't GBP, PayPal will let you enter a value in your local currency. Cash and cheques are accepted although less preferred because of security. If you wish to do this anyway, please PM me for details. Many thanks once again, Happy 11th Birthday to the website and Best Wishes to everyone for 2018! Stephen

Happy 43rd Anniversary today by rolfman2000 Admiral   Posted: 2 months ago
Slightly belated (due to Christmas non alcoholic hangover) 43rd wedding anniversary. Hope you both had a great celebration. Jan and I are only 2 years behind you, and I certainly couldn't live without mine. Many congratulations. Best wishes, Dave W 😊

Hunstman 31 fittings kit for Christmas from Slec by Novagsi0 Captain   Posted: 2 months ago
Yes they do. Their model is tiny ,this is the precedent 31" huntsman. The fittings look the perfect scale. In my opinion there too big for their model.

Still a great looking model, do SLEC sell the fittings separately? Mark
