Build Update by Pav403 Commander   Posted: 8 days ago
Hello all, Hope you are well? It's taken a while to get to where I am but I can start to see some real progress. I've managed to get the main superstructure complete, they are at a stage where they could be connected to the deck if it was ready. The Hull is now covered in a layer of Balsa, it does now need a lot of rubbing down so I can then look at applying a layer of fiberglass. I've not ordered this yet but I have seen it advertised at Cornwall Model Boats. If anyone has any suggestions on how to fiberglass I'm happy to hear any advise as this will be my 1st time. Good luck with your builds Regards Dave

Arrival of new Crew by Alex Seaman   Posted: 14 days ago
You got these crew from Cornwall Model Boats? Can you post a link? Finding crew figures in North America is impossible🤔

from the Philippines by figtree7nts Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 29 days ago
Hi Analyst, What are your plans I'm sure you'll find very helpful group of people here on the website. in the mean while, What kind of vessel are you planning on building. Is it a police boat, a navy boat a fireboat? Are you going to have it built from plans? You should order all your electronics from the internet! I order from Cornwall Model Boats in the UK. http://www.cornwallmodelboats.c They have very good prices, I live in the US and I get my parts in a week and half. Good luck with your project, can't wait to see what you'll be building! 👍 Ed.

Caldercraft Professional Glue by figtree7nts Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 2 months ago
Hi Mark, It only cost me £2.02 to post from Cornwall Model Boats. That's not much considering, if I were to go to my local hobby shop it would cost me about £6.00 just to go. and I would have to travel one hour in one direction. So I actually don't mind waiting or paying a little bit of post for my supplies. and it just takes about a week and a half turn around time. I have looked in my local Walmart but didn't find the right stuff. I had been waiting over two months to find the right glue and I did just that. The wait time paid off, Patients is a virtue!👍

I never glued the superstructure of the San Pedro together. I was waiting to see if I could find a thick glue. This I found in the Cornwall Model Boats website, It took about a week and a half to get to me. Now all I have to do is glue the San Pedro superstructure together. First lets experiment and see how the glue works. Well I took a piece of 1/8" ply one drop of glue did it. It was glued instantly instead of the ply just absorbing the glue. the glue was thick enough were it glued the pieces together, Success... I also tried it on plastic, with great success also...

So if you need model boat parts or supplies you should consider Cornwall Model Boats. their also a very friendly and helpful bunch. Also I live in the States and I receive my parcel in about a weeks time. PS. Stay away from Westbourne all I've heard is People having problems with their purchases.

Hi Castlegloom I have ordered all of my supplies from Cornwall Model Boats! They have a great turn around time as well. I'd like to point out I live in the states, my parcels take about a week. How's that for quick delivery service.

Rigging wanted by Dave M Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 6 months ago
Hi Tall Paul If you are intending to sail your model I suggest you visit and download his catalogue. If you scroll to the end you will find turnbuckle and swivels and rigging cord. Mainly designed for the model yacht fraternity so may be a bit heavy for your purpose. However you can then visit other model suppliers, as already suggested, and look for the correct parts. If you do choose shirring elastic you will need to replace every couple of years. I have a large 4' Clyde Puffer and use shirring elastic for the standing rigging as it allows me to drop the mast for storage. The running rigging for the boom, hoist etc is standard rigging cord with home made fittings, but you can get these from Cornwall Model Boats and others Good luck Dave

San Pedro Push Boat - Engine Room Fittings by figtree7nts Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 6 months ago
Well, I just ordered two MFA Motors from Cornwall Model Boats believe it or not it's actually cheaper for me to order from across the pond, than to purchase locally here in the States. I decided to go with the 2.5:1 Gear Ratio @ 6 Volts which = 6180 RPM's at max efficiency per Motor. Hopefully this is enough to power the model. The Model is going to weigh in at 21 lbs when it's totally completed! Next thing to get are the two ESC's, I've chosen the Mtroniks Viper Marine Plug-N-Play and one Mtroniks Mixer water proof of course. I Should have the boat in the water by Mid-November just for testing! If not bathtub trials will have to do!

Westbourne Models are useless, hopefuly you paid by credit card which means that you can reclaim your money through your bank. Personally I can highly reccomend Cornwall Model Boats.
