Schnellboot & Fairmile D by reilly4 Sub-Lieutenant   Posted: 1 month ago
Thank-you. We use car drive belts to assist with launch and retrieval of the boats. They are easy to carry about, maintain their shape in the water and don't slip from under the hulls. these belts are about 900mm long so you won't have to bend far when launching.

Excellent boats. i have scratch built a vosper 510 1/24 scale known as the long boat. Im also building a 73" vosper 379 which has become a bit of a project? Its a bit big and i am not looking for trying to sail it in my local pond. last time i tried it i nearly chucked myself in the pond to the delight of some onlookers.

Thought it didn't look like UK, but more like Perth WA foreshore!

Thanks. The location is Albert Park lake in Melbourne, Australia. The Schnellboot now has a brushless motor, and my Fairmile D has 2 x Graupner 700 12v motors.

They go so nicely.... where is the location?

Schnellboot & Fairmile D by reilly4 Sub-Lieutenant   Posted: 3 months ago
Both boats are 1/24 scale The E boat belongs to a good friend. It has just had a new camouflage pattern added. The Fairmile D is scratch-built, it took nearly 4 years to build, launched in 2011. The sound effects were added for fun. The location is Albert Park lake in Melbourne, Australia

Fairmile D by Lyle Sub-Lieutenant   Posted: 4 years ago
Hello from an Ossie, I am gob smacked at your detail, It Is so good I bet you have messed up and the shoe laces on the boots of the crew are done Incorrectly? ( well, I know they are wearing wellies, so It can only be that the buttons on the weather jacket are on the wrong side?) What a delight, a superb model of building and engineering. Very, very well done . See ya Lyle.
