KuK TB IV by Dainesh Chief Petty Officer   Posted: 11 days ago
[Score: 10/10] - Comments: Kaiserlich und Königlich (KuK) TB IV Recently built scale model boat (1:50). It is a fine art work. Length: 884mm Beam: 95mm One 3 blade propeller. Main armament: 2 45cm torpedo tubes, 2 4.7cm/L44 Skoda rapid firer. Crew: 20 people Speed:27.5 knots In 1905 the Austrian Naval Technical Committee presented three different designs for a 110t coastal torpedo-boat, mainly differing in the propulsion system (VTE or turbines). Having insufficient experience with turbines, a final VTE-propelled design with oil-firing was presented in 1907. To compare it with foreign technology, Krupp, Schichau and Yarrow were asked for competitive designs, all of which turned out to be inferior. Initially STT was ordered to build 8 such boats, but this was reduced to 6, because Danubius had to participate. When the older torpedo-boats lost their names in 1910 in favour of arable numbers, these units became in consequence Tb 1-Tb 6. The boats were surprisingly seaworthy up to sea state 5-6, and during the war they saw active service on escort, minesweeping and anti-submarine dunes.

I'm going to reprogram my Icon for C.M.B. also if any one ask I'll give them the shortened version of the C.M.B. figures at the website URL.... I have a funny feeling I get the long URL because I'm in the US. has to be I don't know!

Hi Ed Just looked at the CMB site and found http://www.cornwallmodelboats. co.uk/acatalog/graupner_crew.html#aG3 75_2e42. They appear to be the same as your figures. The link works, it's possible that your link is for the USA. Figures are very realistic. Dave

Hi Ed Do you remember which section of the figures you found yours? There are rather a lot to search through. Thanks Dave

Hi Dave Thanks for pointing this out! I'm not sure why McAfee is rejecting the URL. On my side it works perfectly! I was just trying to give Alex a direct URL to the figures he asked about! It must be a McAfee anomaly, because it's just a simple URL. But as you recommend http://www.cornwallmodelboats. co.uk and do a search is good also! Thanks again, Ed

Hi Ed The link you posted is rejected by my McAfee. However if you just go to the website http://www.cornwallmodelboats. co.uk and then type scale figures in their search box you can see all they have on offer. Adding the scale you require (eg1:32) produces just this scale figures. As you have already found the figures perhaps you could share the section and scale details? Dave

Hi Alex, Here is the link, sorry it's so long but it will take you to your new crew. I know what you mean, this is why I source all my crew from the UK.

HMCS Agassiz by Rod Sub-Lieutenant   Posted: 14 days ago
Hi Dave Nice to hear from you again Yes the total superstructure and mast are removable to get into the steam engine The engine is manufactured by Saito and is a single screw with single boiler and pressurises up to about 60 psi Heated with a methanol fueled burner and runs on full steam for about 25 minutes The unit runs very smoothly and creates smoke through a built in smoke generator for more realism Cheers Rod

OK, I've received my three crewmen from C.M.B. after about a week of time. They are finally here and glued in place! I think I'll order five or six more just to put around the boat! Three crewmen just doesn't do it.

Motor upgrade by Dave M Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 23 days ago
Hi Colin There should be a ali plate with each motor and screws (countersunk). Attach the plate to the motor then fashion an angled metal plate with a hole to fit the ali plate, drill holes to attach with bolts (threadlocked) and mount to the hull. I have attached some pics of my crash tender and the sea queen. The latter uses a water cooled ali plate supported by two side brackets. Dave
