Just the thing for two projects I have lined up. Which adhesive did you use? All the best. NPJ

HI NPJ I gave a few bits of blind to my boating mate and he is using it for doors and access hatch covers on his TID tug. Canabus

Hi All As the owner of two Hellen fishing boats, I was looking for something with better access, but, about the same size. I found the French version of the Hellen. Larger hatch and a raised section forward of the wheelhouse. Also this is my first strip planked boat, I picked up an IKEA wooden blind for $5au with a 100 strips of 3mm by 25mm and 1100mm long.

Old outboard motor... by Westquay Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 7 days ago
Oh I know what to do with 'em, Doug, just not sure I could DO it! I think if you need a quick outboard and won't pay Graupner prices, you're stuck with a HobbyKing who do 2, both very similar, but about 65-70 quid a pop. I've just realised my little vintage outboard will go on my little fibreglass clinker dinghy, making it a wee fishing boat. I will have to put 2 servos in the dolly (dressed as an old salt). One will turn it on and off and one will steer once I've put a tiller on it. No ESC needed. Old o/bs either run or not, so he can turn the little brass switch on and steer it. Painted harbour launch grey, with a couple of lobster pots and a dog, it'll be a sweet little model. Martin

Cygnus GM32 by GrahamP74 Admiral   Posted: 9 days ago
Nice work so far! My last build was a GM 33. I’m not great with electrics but have similar engine to you with a 700mm screw. Will be watching your model take shape, love a good fishing boat!

Cygnus GM32 by canabus Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 12 days ago
Hi Cygnus GM32 I am using these Hobbyking ones Links to setup the ESC on Lipo and Niamh. I have used them on 12 volts , but, they will not work on 6 volts. You can crash straight from forward into reverse !!! Running a 70mm 3blade on one Hellen fishing boat (weight 14 pounds) and a 60mm brass 3 blade on the other Hellen.

Cygnus DS25 by Bucaneer16 Chief Petty Officer   Posted: 12 days ago
[Score: 8/10] 20"/1000g Cygnus DS25 Capable of 3mph and a runtime of 60mins Single Propellor (3 Blade) Direct Drive to a Graupner speed 500 (3 Blade) Powered by Lead Acid (12v) 6Amp/h Batteries Controlled Through Mtroniks 20 (5Amps) ESC - Comments: Models by design DS25. Open fishing boat used mainly as a rescue boat and when I want a nice quiet motor around the lake!

Elke HF 408 by Neil-S Seaman   Posted: 27 days ago
[Score: 5/10] 20"/600g Elke HF 408 Capable of 2mph Single Propellor (3 Blade) Direct Drive to a 6v (3 Blade) Powered by NiMH (7.2v) Batteries - Comments: This is a restoration project - my first radio control boat 'Elke', is a small fishing boat with plastic hull, a Graupner kit, purchased in Germany when I was serving in the Army there in 1974. I am restoring it for my grandson. It used to be a good runner with a 6v battery, small electric motor, two servos, one wired so it could move boat in reverse as well as forward. A good little sailor, light in weight and a good pond model. Had to be careful of wave height. Anyway, it has been in the garage for 40 years now so much to do. The inside is a bit of a mess and everything has a layer of dust. I will fit a speed controller and NiMH battery. But nothing too difficult so hope to have it finished for Christmas.

Lobmaster by Ishmael Petty Officer   Posted: 27 days ago
[Score: 9/10] 22"/1400g Lobmaster Capable of 3mph and a runtime of 50mins Single Propellor (2 Blade S Type 30mm) Direct Drive to a 550 PJ6047 Thunder Tiger (2 Blade S Type) Powered by Lead Acid (6v) 5Amp/h Batteries Controlled Through Veloci Pro-R Thunder Tiger (50Amps) ESC - Comments: 1/24th scale Ready-to-Run European style fishing boat. Three (3) 'G' scale figures added and 1/24th scale welding rig from Phoenix Mobile Mechanic Series garage accessories. I also added some very subtle weathering (mostly rust) to the hull.

"Maureen Lee" by Ishmael Petty Officer   Posted: 28 days ago
[Score: 8/10] 33"/3700g "Maureen Lee" Capable of 3mph and a runtime of 90mins Single Propellor (3 Blade 30mm) Direct Drive to a 550 type (3 Blade) Powered by NiMH (7.2v) 3Amp/h Batteries Controlled Through Unknown ESC - Comments: The “Maureen Lee” started out as a Bristol Bay ready-to-run semi-scale model of a typical European fishing cutter. Many modifications were made to her to make her look like an old, worn-out fishing boat. Factory-installed switchable work and navigation lighting means that she can even be operated at night. A 550-size electric motor and metal propeller allow for ample power. A Bristol Bay model is supplied practically fully assembled… you need only mount the two masts and install the batteries. Numerous robust details make this model look great at home or on the water! Technical specifications: Hull length: 850 mm Width: 220 mm Overall height: 737 mm Total weight: 3650 g
