Trying to trace a boat by sailorboy61 Seaman   Posted: 4 days ago
Models by Design, one of their fishing boats eg Cygnus?

Frames glued up & water test. by GARTH Admiral   Posted: 11 days ago
Just a couple more photos of the fishing boat & sealed hull with gorilla wood glue then a coat of 2 part finishing epoxy in the inside . The boat is small enough to float in the kitchen sink

Palamo's Fishing boat by Joe727 Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 21 days ago
That's a nice looking kit, I like fishing boats, all work boats in general. Should be a fun challenge, but looks very doable in RC. Good luck! Joe

Palamo's Fishing boat by GARTH Admiral   Posted: 21 days ago
Well it's winter here in Hamilton Ontario & I decided to R/C a kit by Ocio Creativo 1/45 scale length 410 mm fishing boat .The model is a static kit so the trick will be installing all the R/C equipment . The challenge is the bulk heads are solid & will need to be modified for motor ,stuffing box , battery ,Etc .

Older Billings Models by Richard7 Sub-Lieutenant   Posted: 1 month ago
Hi Garth & Brianaro, l too have been building Billings kits, although l do find some of there instructions a bit hit and miss, but l think any kit has its challenge. My first Billing kit was the Norden fishing boat, my second kit was the Boulogne-Etaples, now l am currently building the St Canute tug, but l took a rest during the run up and over Xmas, to be honest l am struggling with the hull planking, so l will knuckle down very soon. I have also built the Aero-naut Diva which was a fine kit to make. Your chat reminded me of my early school days (late 50’s) when l used to spend my paper round money of the “Keilcraft boat kits” (May have got the kit name wrong), the boat l recall was called the Mermaid, does anyone out there remember these early kits? Anyway chaps l’ve attached photos of my current finished kits, l always like to see other completed kits! Happy new year and good modelling for 2019 Richard

Book on Sailing Barges by Joe727 Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 2 months ago
I have always like the English sailing workboats and have built some fishing boats. Now my interest turned to Sailing Barges, found this nice book - Sailing Barges by Frank Carr. It's full of etchings, photos and some line drawings. Think this will be helpful in scratch building a barge. Over 450 pages and found a lightly used copy for $18.00 USD, on eBay. Regards, Joe

All hooked up, nowt happens... by canabus Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 2 months ago
Hi All If you require a brush ESC. The Hobbyking one is the only one I have found with straight forward/ reverse with NO BRAKE. Set is with links, but the they only work on Nicads and Lipo batteries. They will run on 12 volt SLA, but no less!!!! I am using them in my two Hellen fishing boats with 55 turn rock crawler motors on 2S Lipo on 60% throttle. Canabus

Excelsior by Joe727 Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 2 months ago
Hello, Just spotted your boat, I love the gaff-rigged working craft. Built one, a Falmouth fishing boat, and I plan to do more. Your boat is very impressive, nice quality workmanship and attention to detail. If you don't mind I am curious about a couple of things. Is it plank on plank? Did you fiberglass over the hull or just paint. What kind of wood do you use for planking. I to, work from old drawings plans with lines and offsets. Great work! Regards, Joe

servo by Colin H. Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 2 months ago
Great idea Steve, I was thinking on the same lines as that's how my dad's 22 ft fishing boat was controlled using cables in tubes with pulleys in the corner and a forward steering wheel / helm in cuddy / cabin.

More deck planking by canabus Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 3 months ago
Hi Chaps A lot more planking added and still more to go!!! It's looking a bit smart of a fishing boat it's poetic license!!! Canabus

Gwyneth by Nerys Lieutenant   Posted: 3 months ago
[Score: 5/10] 25" Gwyneth Single Propellor Direct Drive - Comments: I have never added to my fleet by buying in before, but looking at the Bring and Buy stall at the Blackpool show recently I couldn't resist this little boat. I like fishing boats anyway, but this boat was beautifully built, clinker on frame, planked decks, good standard of woodwork, altogether, a worthy addition to my fleet. I sailed her for the first time today and was well pleased with her performance.

Our Ben Fishing Boat by GrahamP74 Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 3 months ago
I have purchased a fishing boat as part of a boat bundle on ebay, It looks like a Cygnus DS25 hull. I intend to remove the deck that has been fitted very high, change the wheelhouse and make it into a small netting boat on a 16th scale. The name is for my Nephew who has enjoyed watching me make my other models and loves coming to the lake with me. This way he can have a boat of his own!

Julieth 4 French fishing boat by ChrisG Lieutenant   Posted: 3 months ago
Beautiful boats and great workmanship, I think there is something wonderful about modelling in the same way as the original was built although it always seems a shame to only be able to enjoy the planking after lifting the hatches. 👍
