Dumas USS Crockett by Donnieboy Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 9 hours ago
Boat looked great.The boat ran just fine.Not too much over scale speed.It's good to have a little more speed to avert obstacles,especially oyher boats that don't know where they are.

Dumas USS Crockett by Joburg-sailor Petty Officer   Posted: 11 hours ago
Hope this works as I can't figure out how to post a video! Click on the media file and then on the download button. The file should then appear at the bottom of your screen. Spioenkop is officially a MEKO 200SAN class Frigate. I duplicated the unusual drive used in these boats in that they have CODAG-WARP; COmbined Diesel And Gas turbine - Waterjet And Refined Propellers. I have the main props motors and the jet drive on separate channels. The video clip shows the first test of this layout with the jet drive coming in after about 4sec of video and is switched off just before the end of the video. I was just so delighted that my system worked that I unashamedly ran it madly over-scale speed on this first outing....sorry!!

Mahogany in Scale by Westquay Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 2 days ago
Hmmm, well a cursory look through over lunch shows me that the book is fine if you're a kit basher as it covers the Dumas kind of kit, but for the actual modelmaker it holds nothing but nice pics on indifferent paper. Some useful addresses in the back. That's about it. Nothing on deck fittings, etc. Martin

Skylight Windows! by figtree7nts Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 2 days ago
The Skylight windows are now painted and completed! Dumas should have done a better job. At designing the skylight on the Brooklyn! Dumas could have precut the windows. Which would have looked great! I would have cutout the Skylight windows. But was unable to! So, just painted the window frames!

Life Boat & Davit! by figtree7nts Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 23 days ago
On the life boat, Had to order some black rope! Dumas uses black string. I didn’t like this so found a ship company in New Jersey. They have different size miniature rope. I had ordered some but didn’t know the size! Luckily was able to send back what they had sent me. And was able to send a sample of some tan rope back and a block that dumas sent made of plastic! I want wooden blocks! And black miniature rope. It’ll look more realistic in the long run!
