Prop shaft by jarvo Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 12 days ago
HI Ed, long time no speak. If you want up-graded prop shafts, have a look at Raboesch, they do shafts with roller bearings and great seals, look on their site , but , order from either Deans Marine, or Cornwall Model Boats, expensive but truly superb Mark

krick romarin "ex robbe" by Dave M Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 13 days ago
The Robbe factory was sold off probably with most of the moulds and equipment when the company got into difficulties. There are some kits available and Cornwall Model Boats stock the available range. I would check the Krick site for their postal charges to the UK. The demise of Robbe and Graupner was a big set back for model makers universally and its a pity many of the resources were lost before a rescue was possible. I agree with Doug E-Bay does have them listed occasionally and I have seen them at Model Boat Shows bring and buy sales. CADMA is possibly the next show (2nd - 3rd Jun), the Mutual Model Boat club appears to have moved to September not forgetting The Model Boat Convention on 25th - 26th August.

Too Powerful Brushless ? by reilly4 Commander   Posted: 18 days ago
I get my Raboesch propellers from Cornwall model boats - and I am in Australia. It would be very interesting if there was a video made at the start of this post. How many Watts of power is that motor producing. That is the question I would have asked at the time.

Too Powerful Brushless ? by Dave M Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 18 days ago
Hi Doug Thanks for the update on PropShop. I can't find a way to order from Raboesch, they seem to have agreed distribution with Jotika who have not yet set up to take orders. The Raboesch web site directs me to the USA for distributors! Cornwall Model Boats do stock so all is not lost.

Lifeboat by rolfman2000 Admiral   Posted: 20 days ago
As to where you could get it from. Cornwall model boats sell a good selection of wood for building or decking. Including a lot of nice exotic timbers which will give lovely decking patterns. As to what. I would use 1/8th inch or 1/4 inch square for the stringers in spruce. Hope that helps. Kindest wishes, Dave W 😊

M5 Prop Shaft by Mzee Chief Petty Officer   Posted: 3 months ago
Well, I am 83+ and use the Internet extensively - been making models of all sorts (and that includes topographic and architecture models) since I was about 10 :-). Must add that Cornwall Model Boats is the tops - great range of everything and speedy, reliable service.

Hi Andy, Cornwall Model Boats / BECC, various sizes, here's the link. Cheers Doug 😎

Sea Queen Prop Shaft by Dave M Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 3 months ago
Hi Andy What size is your Sea Queen? Is it from a kit or a published plan? What particular motor, ESC, battery and prop size are you intending to fit? If the supplied prop shaft is true it should be OK. I suggest you test it by removing the inner shaft and rolling it on a piece of glass. Any bend will easily show and that shaft will be unusable for your purpose. As Jarvo says you can perhaps shorten the length. I have just looked on the Cornwall Model Boats site and they have 5mm prop shafts which may be a better quality than those you have and are supplied with the common prop threads. Modern prop shafts are much better than were available a few years ago and yes I still have (unfitted) the original aluminium and mild steel prop shafts for my Aeorkits Solent 48" lifeboat and they were both bent!

34" sea commander Aerokits kit by RNinMunich Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 5 months ago
Hi garth, Cornwall Model Boats advertise one http://www. style='background-color:yellow;'> They have an excellent reputation for delivery, service and technical help 👍👍👍 Go there! or here- Howes might be cheaper !? Cheers Doug

Aerokits Solent Class Lifeboat by Skydive130 Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 6 months ago
I am a modeller of 45 years experience, mostly with RC aircraft but have recently got into boats. Have completed the aeronaut Diva and spitfire to a high standard but needed a challenge So, having spent a long time trying to source an un-started Aerokits Solent, I bit the bullet and bought a set of plans and templates from eBay. Overall the plans are good, the templates need some adjusting as we go for acuaracy. Have spent the last couple of weeks perusing the plans and sourcing the materials needed. A visit to the Balsa Cabin in Maldon, Essex provided all the ply and the internet has provided the main components I.e motors, props, shafts, ESC, battery, soundboard/speaker, servo mostly sourced from Cornwall model boats and Howes Models septembers issue of "model boats" had a great article on a refurb which has been very useful for hints n tips on required electrics and the little extras needed to complete. I do have a workshop where the model will spend most of its time, however my wife's conservatory has been invaluable for using my eBay sourced scroll saw to cut out the formers! The sheet of 6mm ply from balsa cabin was long enough to make keel formers 1 & 2 one piece! I shall post a more detailed update when I get my computer back from repair Monday!

propshafts by Dave M Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 6 months ago
Hi Doug I agree a 600 is probably too heavy. Looking on Cornwall Model Boats site the motors sold for the kit (currently unavailable) look more like 400 size. I have used JP Power 480 motors in small craft and they are very punchy, light 92g and will work very well on 7.2v with a shaft diam 2.3mm. I agree the Raboesch prop shafts are good but to keep the weight down I would be looking at 3 or 4mm. Prop Shop have three bladed racing props specifically for this motor. Dave
