1/30 scale decals/stickers by benidormbob Petty Officer   Posted: 5 days ago
Thank you very much 😉

1/30 scale decals/stickers by RNinMunich Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 5 days ago
No problem, DON'T FORGET: Her real name is 'Löschkreuzer Weser'!!!!!! Literally 'Extinguisher-Cruiser W...' Weser is a river in north Germany. If you get curious about any German on the sites and need any help with translation let me know, I've been here 32 years now, picked up 'a bit' of the lingo 😉 Have fun, Doug 😎

Hi Bob, try here- https://www.google.de/search?q=L%C3%B6schkreuzer+Weser&dcr=0... Most (all?) site are in German (no sweat for me 😉) but it's the pics you want anyway! She doesn't seem to have much anyway; just name plates on the superstructure and home port (Bremerhaven) on the stern. Cheers Doug 😎

Hola Bob, why not print your own? You only need a half decent inkjet printer. 😉 https://www.photopaperdirect.com/products/A4-Gloss-Vinyl-Sel... Cheers Doug 😎

Hi, I'm looking for some 1/30 scale decals/transfers for my Loschkreuzer Weser fire boat. I have tried ebay and just about every where else I can to no avail. There are plenty about for train related signs/loco names etc but nothing fire related. Any help would be great. Thank you

USCG CG-44345 by circle43nautical Sub-Lieutenant   Posted: 6 days ago
[Score: 8/10] 28"/1400g USCG CG-44345 Capable of 14mph and a runtime of 45mins Twin Propellors (3 Blade 40mm) Direct Drive to a MAB 540 (3 Blade) Powered by NiMH (8.4v) 3Amp/h Batteries Controlled Through HOBBYWING (10Amps) ESC - Comments: VINTAGE BILLING BOATS (MY FIRST RC ENDEAVOR 1989) 1:20 US COAST GUARD 44' MOTOR LIFEBOAT. ABS HULL & DECK WITH PLYWOOD CABINS. ALL STOCK RUNNING HARDWARE AND FITTINGS. I'M CURRENTLY OVERHAULING HER, HULL IS DECORATED AND MARKED WITH NEW DECALS. THE ORIG KIT WAS CG-44329, WHICH SAILED OUT OF US COAST GUARD LIFEBOAT STATION MANASQUAN INLET, NJ. I CHANGED THE HULL NUMBER AND RELOCATED HER TO USCG LIFEBOAT STATION LUDINGTON, MI., WHICH WAS MY DREAM STATION WHEN I WAS A PROUD US COAST GUARDSMAN, '80-86. THERE WERE 110 OF THESE MLB'S BUILT BY THE COAST GUARD YARD IN CURTIS BAY, MD, AND THE DESIGN WAS SO SUCCESSFUL, IT WAS DUPLICATED BY THE RNLI AND STILL IN SERVICE TODAY. THERE ARE EVEN A COUPLE FOR SALE THE LAST TIME I CHECKED. OTHER THAN THE 40' UTB, THE 44 IS MY FAVORITE COASTAL RESCUE CRAFT.

What paint type by Dave M Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 2 months ago
Hi Scotty Welcome to the site. Just had a look on the web about Sanson Tugboat see pic. As you intend to allow the planking to show I suggest you use G4 Pond Sealer (Bondaglass Product) on your hull after you have sanded smooth to shape. You can also use on the inside. It's a polyurethane type so can be easily brush applied in thin coats and sets rock hard as well as being totally waterproof. You can overpaint if you carefully roughen the surface with wet and dry paper. Once the colour is dry and any decals applied you can apply a final coat of G4 over the whole hull and it will be protected against the odd knock etc. As Doug says acrylic is easy and pleasant to use for the upper works and can be sealed with acrylic clear lacquer, I find silk works best on a scale model. Sounds like an interesting project is it a kit? If you start a build blog we can watch your progress and you will be able to ask for help and advice as the build progresses. Please keep us posted on progress. Enjoy the build Dave

Hobby Engine Richardson Upgrade by jarvo Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 2 months ago
HI Neville, why did i move the bridge, Ha. the main reason was to make my boat different to the standard, i cut away the staircase and a small part of the railing, re-drilled the mounting holes and basically that was it, i have 4 of these, so each one is different, none except Richardson have the stairs, the first i re-painted in Smit colors, second was like the first but only removed the name and re-named as Itchen Marine Wyforce, using vinyl decals i had made, the third re-painted in Wiesmuller colours, but with the funnels re-located on top of the air intakes with a firefighting bridge across with 2 fire nozzles, they all get a lot of interest, cost very little to alter but are different.

Added extras by Skydive130 Admiral   Posted: 2 months ago
Here are some shots of the main plan and the proposed electronics going into my Solent. My only issue is whether my choice of motors is suitable? I've gone with 2 x 600 brushed motors on 15 inch shafts and 45mm brass props which I purchased before reading the article in Septembers model boats mag. The author in that has gone with 2 x 850's? With my aircraft experience, it's strange going "backwards" with brushed motors instead of the aircraft industry standard of using brushless motors, esc's and lipo battery's! And to cap it all, I've not go any aircraft that could possibly drag let alone lift the 12v 7amp lead acid battery that I've bought for this boat! Any thoughts on motor choice would be appreciated, apart from that I'm good with the electrics. The Mtroniks sound board and speaker is a blast using the Napier diesel sound chip. Another shot shows some of the decor going on, i.e. RNLI decals, numbering for "Douglas Currie", portholes, anchor, handrail stanchions. Other decor, doors, bollards etc coming from Macs soon. Last show shows the finished working radar built from scrap and painted in VW brilliant orange which I believe is a recognised match. One last question, can someone please give me an approx size for the 3mm main deck stanchions which I will fashion from brass tube and soldered eyelets, rope thickness would be helpful too, many thanks

Billings Sea King in need of TLC by AllenA Admiral   Posted: 3 months ago
Sea King now restored. Veneered the deck adding some fancy balsa work on the bow deck. Modern veneers are thin and difficult to manage. Shouldn't have varnished the white areas as so called clear varnish is not clear when painted on white. Overall, I'm pleased with her and learned a lot of lessons. Loved Glue'n Glaze for the windows. What a Godsend. Retained the original como motors added a fan cooled Chinese 320 esc and linked her to a new old stock Acoms Techniplus Alpha 27mhz transmitter and Acoms AR-201 Rx with futaba servo. Hull painted Hammerite smooth Gold, with white Plastikote. Managed to retain the original Billings sticker and name decals.If the bath is anything to go by she should plane quite easily. Might add some ropes and fenders but enjoying her clean looks at the moment.

Billings Sea King in need of TLC by AllenA Admiral   Posted: 4 months ago
Thanks Marky. Hadn't thought of that. I have the waterslide paper which I used for some decals on my Grandson's RC car recently. Still think I will try to mask them if I need to paint the hull. Thanks again.

Billings Sea King in need of TLC by Dave M Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 4 months ago
Hi AllenA I see there appears to be some varnish inside the hull so perhaps you could try some stripper on a small area to see what happens. A heat gun is probably not wise with all the windows and painted cabin tops and hull. Used sparingly the stripper should not affect the ply. Unless the white hull paint is damaged I would leave well alone unless you can source a supply for the decals. Dave
