KuK TB IV by Dainesh Chief Petty Officer   Posted: 13 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.

Motor upgrade by Dave M Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 28 days ago
I should add that the car ESCs require the engine to stop before reverse can be selected. If you talk to the car friends they will explain. That said I use one on my Fireboat and it works fine. Dave

If you look at http://www.rafboats.co.uk/ you will see a lot more than Fireboats. Edward

This is a useful reference source. Stephen you may want to consider adding the link http://www.rafboats.co.uk/ff46 vmk2.html to the site as it covers Fireboats. Dave

Hi Analyst, What are your plans I'm sure you'll find very helpful group of people here on the website. in the mean while, What kind of vessel are you planning on building. Is it a police boat, a navy boat a fireboat? Are you going to have it built from plans? You should order all your electronics from the internet! I order from Cornwall Model Boats in the UK. http://www.cornwallmodelboats. co.uk/index.html They have very good prices, I live in the US and I get my parts in a week and half. Good luck with your project, can't wait to see what you'll be building! 👍 Ed.

Graf Spee by RNinMunich Chief Petty Officer   Posted: 1 month ago
[Score: 5/10] 58" Graf Spee Twin Propellors (3 Blade 35mm) Direct Drive to a 600 (3 Blade) Powered by Lead Acid (12v) 4Amp/h Batteries Controlled Through Graupner Navy V30R (30Amps) ESC - Comments: It's a Graupner premium line ATR! ;-/ Wanted some 'quick fun' while working on more complex constructions (HMS Hotspur H Class Destroyer 1936, 1:72 and Type IIA U26 also 1936). Didn't work out that way! On first test of motors and ESC I discovered that the shafts were so badly fitted that they were binding ;-( So back in dry dock for some hull surgery! That's why some inputs are missing above. Plan is to gradually add functions and special effects; lighting, gun controls, magicians Flash Paper for gun flashes. Maybe fired using my old glow-plugs!!?? Now I'm freshly retired I have more time for this ;-), as long as Gisela doesn't drag me off around the world too often ;-) I also have HMS Belfast from the same series (approx 1:128) also awaiting fitting out. More soon - don't hold your breath please ;-) In the pipeline is some 'Plastic Magic' with Ark Royal, Hood and Bismark all to 350 scale ca 70-80cm. Sorry been in Munich for over 30 years don't think in inches any more (except when buying mag wheels for the chariot!) Cheers, and as my German boating friends say 'Immer ein Handbreite Wasser unterm Kiel!) = I wish you always a hand-widths water under your keel. PS How do I add a Sailing Location to the profile?? I sail on the lake in the Ostpark near me in Munich. Very convenient, right next to the Biergarten! 😎
