Hi! Marky, I have just recovering from a stroke Andi have a gaff rigged cutter half done but as it was my first time building a sail boat I was stuck when it came to the sail set up then the stroke I can't get back to it so I would wonder if you could possibly negotiate another set for the eezebilt RAF tender cut in plywood. I would be most willingly pay for it no problem, Please don't fret if its not possible I will understand Laters then Mick
Am building the EEZEBILT RAF tender the hints and tips suggest a 280 or 300 brushed motor but on other posts in the forums brushless motors are mentioned ,both my previous boats have been static so this is a steep learning curve for me ,Q1 brushed or brushless ?.Q2 what size ? Q3 would it be easier to buy a RC set up complete rather than individual bits and bobs ?.Q4 will defiantly follow in the near future . Any help much appreciated 👍 Cheers Marky
a 30"scratch built pt. boat, I built hull from .8mm ply using a resized eezebilt 20" plan. the deck fittings were copied as best as I could from photos and drawings found on line. powered by 2- 2200kv brushless out runner motors through 2 20 amp speed controllers. twin contra rotating props twin rudders fast and light a pleasure to build 2
Here's the Dolphin 16 so far. I have upped her to 20" and a few modifications to total cabin coverage to give me room for the power and radio setup. Just realised this was not Eezebilt but a Meccano plan. I will probably try the Eezebilt Sea Princess next though. Ok, old age doesn't come on it's own.........
its the eezebilt 50+RAF fire tender 20"long all the plans are in the plans section under free plans inc tamar lifeboat posted by Sonar at the bottom of the Tamar plans is a link to home page if you click the link it lets you access all the eezebilt plans ,building tips etc .
Just printed a set of eezebilt drawings from the plans section .i am very lucky and work in a university that has lots of facilities I took the drawings to the reprographic department who scanned them for me I have taken the file to the CAD workshop (luckily I manage the workshop technicians) and left the file to be laser cut in 3mm marine birch ply ,off for a few days so will pick it up on Monday will post some pictures when its ready.
after trawling through the plans section my grandson and I have decided the next build will be a eezebilt 50+RAF fire tender maybe try it in ply rather than balsa ,the wee mans 7 and seems really interested so I will let him do as much as possible he will probably be less messy than me so wood hunting at the weekend ,I will have a look through the scrap bins at the work and salvage as much as I can first
hang on to your balsa wood and have a look at eezebilt.th/plans the wood can be used with grain vertical for curves or it can be joined if you have longer model plans I have a 45inch plank on frame model and the planks are all 10mm balsa and all are joined somewhere along their length or can be used for bulkheads also have a look at Glynn Guest plans most are aimed at beginners hope this helps Yours Scout
