54" long Cervia tug. by RNinMunich Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 16 days ago
Hi Navagsi, Don't know about the other bits, what scale is the hull?, but Raboesch do 4" Props. See page 3 of attached pdf catalogue. Or go here as you wish- See part nos 147-33 and 147-34. The Raboesch props are stocked by Cornwall Model boats amongst others. They ain't cheap, but quality rarely is😉 Cheers, Doug 😎

Cheap motor for a quick fit, but what prop gents?... by RNinMunich Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 1 month ago
Hi Martin have a look at the Rabeosch range at Cornwall Model Boats. https://www. style='background-color:yellow;'> Don't know what diameter your shafts are but the 156 series might do what you want and they start at 20m (EDIT: Oops! read mm please😲), as do most other series. https://www. style='background-color:yellow;'> for the 3mm shaft versions https://www. style='background-color:yellow;'> or 4mm https://www. style='background-color:yellow;'> I am gradually changing all my long thin WW2 ships to the Rabeosch 162 series with excellent results.😊 https://www. style='background-color:yellow;'> Now back to some fish cutter bashing! I've got less and less boat😲but more and more space for motor and batteries an' stuff!😊 Blog update soon👍 Cheers, Doug 😎

Sea Queen by RNinMunich Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 3 months ago
Hi Sid, for my Sea Scout I used fittings from Krick here in Germany. Several from the 'Riva' series; e.g. jam cleats and tank filler caps you can see in the photos. From the same source I also got some pear drop shaped red & green running lights, a white mast lamp, ship's wheel. Still to be fitted. Other possibilities are, The Model Dockyard or Cornwall Model Boats. https://www. style='background-color:yellow;'> Cheers, Doug 😎 PS the fittings I'm using are nicely chrome plated on brass😊

Who bought Robbe? by Ianh Chief Petty Officer   Posted: 4 months ago
Try Cornwall model boats as the Graupner have revised their range. As suggested look for Krick and Ro Marine Good Luck

Its good day, its a bad , its a great Day by teejay Lieutenant   Posted: 4 months ago
Hi all good stuff that I order arrived quicker than expected, bad day one of the props the wrong size good day quick phone call to Cornwall models sorted. great day I was getting a bit worried out sailing the boats I am making as it looked like I would have to go in Edinburgh or Glasgow to sail them, so last night I fired an email of to Falkirk trust who look after the kelpies and the helix park with has a large lagoon I expected a no go as far as sailing the boats, so great news they said ok no caveat's or conditions except that boats that use fuel are not allowed, and if their are no other organised events on, So after reading so much on the site about clubs folding and boating lakes closing and not been looked after and also the rarity of boat sites in Scotland we now have a site that is easy to get too right next to the motorway that goes for Glasgow Edinburgh and even Perth would to be to far. And I the lucky boy live at its front door so next job after the boat is a trailer for the mobility scooter to carry the boats I think someone did something with a golfing trolley so its praise your god and pass the battery charger , but it is good that the Falkirk community trust is going to let boats on the lagoon

Bristol pilot cutter mascotte by kmbcsecretary Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 5 months ago
thanks figtree7nts and Donnieboy i purchased the anchor from cornwall model boats, i tend to use these for most of my fittings orders as 99% of time they have in stock although they had to order the rigging blocks in for me due to the quantity needed.

Bristol pilot cutter mascotte by kmbcsecretary Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 5 months ago
Thanks Doug for your kind words much appreciated, afraid I did cheat when it comes to the pulley's they were purchased from Cornwall model boats . I did think of making them but decided it would take to long to make, although they did cost a few quid .

Help Needed new Builder Billings St Canute by Richard7 Chief Petty Officer   Posted: 6 months ago

wood glue by Smiffy Sub-Lieutenant   Posted: 6 months ago
Hi dennisw - I use both Titebond 3 (green label) and the Aliphatic Sandable Wood Glue which I get from Cornwall Model Boats (not the first plug I have given them but no connection, just a very satisfied customer). It is described as "quick grab, excellent sanding, shock & weather resistant, bonds porous materials, ply, balsa and hardwoods, non-toxic and non-fuming". So far it has not let me down. Best of luck with your build. Smiffy

Help Needed new Builder Billings St Canute by Richard7 Chief Petty Officer   Posted: 6 months ago
Yikes Frodo, I have just measured my plank lengths and indeed they are shorter than the hull approx. 90-100cm!! Considering two kits are identical this must be the intention of billing boats. Has anyone got and advice on this? I was thinking that it might be best to split the plank in half, glue the bow and stern ends first, then glue a plank section in the middle area? "We could do with some help here chaps". Another thing Frodo, do not try and fit the M500 motor I have!! (please see photos), stick with the M400 its smaller. As you can see in the photos my battery will not fit....GULP. Does anyone know if there is a smaller battery out there? The one I have is a 4405385 (Cornwall model boats P/N) 7.2V 3300 H. One other thing Frodo "DO NOT" fit the metal rudder post & item 16, if you do you will not get your inner prop shaft into the tube. The only way to do this would be to remove the motor. Probably best to leave the rudder & item 16 until you have fitted the motor & battery. Also I am finding the space in the hull is very limited for radio control, choose your equipment wisely. I am now thinking I must ditch the M500 motor for the M400 and then look at alternative battery size. After building the Boulogne-Etaples this St Canute kit is extremely challenging. Anyone out there with some suggestions would be a great help....kind of sinking here a bit (a few photos attached) Frodo if you have any further questions please let us know. Cheers Richard.

Amati chrome plated ships wheel - Help! by Black Dog Jack Chief Petty Officer   Posted: 6 months ago
I got it from the excellent Cornwall Model Boats. Look in Amati model boat fittings on their website and select “ships wheels”. It’s the last one on the list and looks like it came of my Dad’s old Ford Pop. It arrived in a small zip lock plastic bag with no instructions or other details. Also for its size (40mm dia.) it is remarkably heavy - and very slippery. However I do this it’s going to need a jig to hold it (plasticine?) as the jointing tags are about one millimetre square.

Graupner ranzow refitting by kmbcsecretary Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 6 months ago
Here is the working anchor winch, i did cheat and purchase this from cornwall model boats if you search for " krick working anchor winch " when i purchased this it retailed at £69 but i do think it is worth the expense and i have in the past used this to make my own working anchor winch for one of my tugs.

Aerokits Patrol Torpedo Boat by MouldBuilder Captain   Posted: 6 months ago
Hi Doug. Would you mind giving me your thoughts on this charger please. Thanks. Peter.😊 Charsoon Antimatter 2X300W Had to think twice about going to Cornwall model boats. It is a warehouse and not a shop.😡

Aerokits Patrol Torpedo Boat by MouldBuilder Captain   Posted: 6 months ago
Thanks Doug. That really helps me. I have read a lot about LiPo batteries and now have a better understanding. This experienced help is perfect. I did buy the 100A car ESC as recommended by Canabus but Hobbyking did not have the suitable programmer. I have left a message so they will respond when a new supply arrives. I have looked elsewhere for the programmer but all of the stockists I found do not have any stock. Supply problem? Thanks again for all of your help. A lot of sanding down and painting awaits me for the next few weeks. I plan to drive to Cornwall Model Boats this weekend to see how it looks. I am getting that hollow feeling that I should get a new kit to run alongside this rebuild. Just for a change now and again you understand😁. We will see. Peter.😊
