New to Forum by DodgyGeezer Commander   Posted: 10 hours ago
"..Are any of the clubs focused on non RC models?..." Some people make the small EeZeBilts as static models - see here:

New to Forum by retirement-hobby Chief Petty Officer   Posted: 2 days ago
Hello fellow model boaters. I'm new here so forgive my posting mistakes. Just wanted to introduce myself, I've been building model boats (static) for about 5 years. I mostly build my concept of a boat, however I have built from some plans. I build small models, 10" is my biggest and most are under that. I also have a fascination with air boats and have built several. Does anyone deal with soldering metal components, having a problem with material. Usually I draw what I want to build, make templates, transfer to balsa, and build. Are any of the clubs focused on non RC models? Looking to learn and share!👍

Thank you John, you've solved the problem for me, Club 500 it is.

Paddle Tug Iona - the hull by Harvey Kitten Lieutenant   Posted: 4 days ago
Thanks Chris... yeah independent paddle control is very useful for navigating into 'dock'. Your "Loch Ranza" looks pretty good too. These Graupner kits are hard to come by. I like paddle steamers as a project, and picked up a part built 'city of Bath' from my local club. Hull & decks complete otherwise I have to build powertrain / superstructure. Planned in for later in the year.

Hi it may be a club 500 from Model Slipway - these are 550 mm long and come in 2 part mouldings with extras. http:// style='background-color:yellow;'> John

New Website Sneak Peak by Fireboat Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 5 days ago
Thought I'd share a sneak peak of the new website with everyone. I was hoping it'd be live by now, but things have required more development time than I first thought. So instead of giving you all a half-baked system, I've kept it in development a bit longer. In the screenshots: - New home page layout, forum middle-top, then build blogs, media gallery, events, clubs/lakes, new harbour boats, a new section for how-to articles and useful links. - How-to articles can be edited - Useful links can be posted on their own - Any member can follow any other member - Forum threads as well as blogs can be followed - New events section, with calendar and map - New places section, also with map - Cleaner layout for forum threads and blogs - Completely refreshed mobile app - New ranking system (some of you will change rank, but it'll remain fair to who has contributed the most) - Easier login, easier uploading of files, easier posting in general - Faster website, all database queries have been restructured to provide fast responses - New notifications area showing all updates to everything you're following There's a tonne more, I do think you'll all love the new site once it's live. Still don't want to promise dates, but when it's ready, it'll launch! Many thanks again to everyone who supports this website. Without this, we'd have sunk years ago! Stephen

SOUTH SHIELDS MODEL YACHT CLUB by JOHN Lieutenant   Posted: 8 days ago
mainly yachts and very enthusiastic straight running group - small selection of scale sailors and the club was founded in 1886 - reputedly being one of oldest model sailing clubs in the UK.

Danish Steam. by Tica Commander   Posted: 15 days ago
Both this boat and the other one you link to is done by a member of Vallensbæk Modelskibs Klub, where I'm also a member Bernhard is the local king of detailing his boats (and trucks).

RC steam lever by GaryLC Lieutenant   Posted: 17 days ago
Hi Rick, I have just posted a bit of video on here which I found very interesting, mainly due to the fine detail of the two figures in the boat, and the fact they are animated via servos. The stuff in the boat has to be seen to be believed, from a Bulldog to a shotgun and tools and stuff everywhere. Very very realistic, and steam beats electric motors every time, welcome to the club. Regards, Gary.
