Smoke generator by figtree7nts Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 19 days ago
Hi Dick, It's a small smoker. So, I figure it probably smokes for about 45-1 hour! The one I have. smokes for 3 hours. On one fill of smoker liquid! But maybe you can call Cornwall Model Boats. And ask some questions! 01840 211009 Cornwall Model Boats Ltd Unit 3B, Highfield Rd Ind Est, Camelford, Cornwall, PL32 9RA, United Kingdom. Cheers, Ed

Boat shaft connectors (which stuffs to use and which is good) by figtree7nts Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 21 days ago
Hi Sakibian, Why can't you use couplings from Cornwall Model Boats! https://www. style='background-color:yellow;'> Maybe you can take a picture of your project to show us. What you are working on! I think the shaft should be close to the motor. Or the rubber hose will tear! Try looking for plastic tubing. Of the diameter you need! Or harder rubber tubing.... Regards, Ed

Mast fittings by RNinMunich Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 27 days ago
Looks like a simple 'Jam cleat', roughly half a normal Horn cleat. On a mast a form of Shroud cleat. Look in the Fittings section of any good model shop, e.g. Cornwall Model Boats. If all else fails just buy a normal two horn cleat and saw/file one horn off. Simple enough to make though. 😎

Steam Whistle! by figtree7nts Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 29 days ago
Hi JBRCfloats, I got the figures for the Brooklyn. From Cornwall Models in the UK! http://www. style='background-color:yellow;'> After shipping they come to about $10.00 a piece! I have about 5 on the Brooklyn. I paint their hardhats blue. And leave one figure with white hardhat. As an indicator he's the Captain! Regards, Ed

Cleaning sails, toy yachts, etc.... by Westquay Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 2 months ago
I just got a lovely old Star SY 3 yacht and needed to clean some filthy sails. My wife suggested Vanish and blow me down with a genoa, it's working. A generally mid to dark grey (I believe oil based) grubbiness has all but disappeared and I should be able to re-rig them with some new off white 1.3mm string from Caldercraft fittings at Cornwall Model Boats. I can make new styrene bowsies and any metal hooks and loops. I've scraped the mast and bowsprit fittings of rust until they look shiny again, repaired a broken mast and repainted the green edging which had been a bit knocked about. I love doing these restorations more than making new stuff! Martin

Rebuild starts by RNinMunich Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 3 months ago
I agree Colin, only I used a mini gas torch on it's smallest flame, with a damp cloth between the tube and boat and the flame angled away from the boat! twisted with mole grips and a sharp tap on the end with a tack hammer. Nothing too heavy!😲 Peter; take a butchers in the Raboesch catalogue for shaft tubes with real bearings. Sold by Cornwall Model boats and others. Otherwise knock the old bearings out using the old shaft and make / buy new bushes. Preferably sintered phosphor-bronze. The sintered metal absorbs and traps oil 😊 Cheers, Doug 😎

St Canute Planking Help? by RNinMunich Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 3 months ago
Evenin' Richard, don't know if you can buy 'blocks' as such. I bought a 20mm thick by 10cm by 100cm plank. Useful for all sorts of stuff. From Krick here in Germany, sure you can get similar from Cornwall Model Boats or SLEC etc. Cheers, Doug 😎

54" long Cervia tug. by RNinMunich Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 3 months 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: 4 months 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: 6 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 Sub-Lieutenant   Posted: 6 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 Commander   Posted: 7 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: 8 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.
