Hi Mark, good on ya! Here's the link for the plans- https://aerofred.com/details.php?image_id=92723 See previous post for the link to the 3d fittings files. They are 1:144 as is but your 3D printer whiz can surely scale them to what you want! happy gluing! Doug 😎 PS Google 'Gearing class' if you want photos and more details! PPS: Congrats on promotion to 'Staff'! No more pension though 🤔

USS Hanley - by RNinMunich Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 6 days ago
While researching USS HAnley found this on thingiverse! 3D print files for armament and deck fittings for Hanley 1:144! https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:152214 I think thingiverse is out to create a whole new Universe! ... and then the robots start 3D printing themselves and then ..... will the last human being please put the cat out and turn the lights off! 😉 Cheers Doug 😎

SCRATCH FISHING BOAT by basilsdad Sub-Lieutenant   Posted: 8 days ago
I have for sale my model fishing boat which was scratch built from a model boat magazine plan, forgot who designed it though. it is built from balsa for the hull sides covered in a pair of the bosses tights before sealing and painting.The stern and deck are ply then painted to seal. all the deck and cabin fittings are scratch built from photoes fokund on line. it is quite heavy about 10Lb of lead if I remember correctly, the length is 30" by 16" to keel bottom and beam 9", fitted with a 12v to 14V motor, 70 mm prop. Batteries and 320 amp fan cooled speed controller included, currently running off 12v 6 amp batteries. space needed for new project £150 collection from Lincoln would be advisable due to size and weight. But could meet up if the distance is reasonable

Display stand and transport case. by RNinMunich Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 11 days ago
Simply magnificent, museum+ quality, and too good to hide in a museum 👍👍👍 I too have learned much about fixtures and fittings from following your immaculate blog Would love to know where the wheeled flight case came from, could help me with my 4 and 5 foot ships!! Cheers Doug 😎

Display stand and transport case. by neilmc Commander   Posted: 11 days ago
After all the effort and care you've put into this build excellent idea to keep it safe.Your build blog is amazing and although i'm learning with Doug's and DaveM help on shaft re position I will be using some of your tips when I get to the deck fittings and cabins 😁😁

Deans Seaplane tender by Dave M Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 21 days ago
Hi Doug Postal charges can add substantially to the cost. The charges from Krick are very high especially to the UK. Their website postal charges page suggests they only ship many items to Germany. So much for the EU being an open market! Our members are from across the globe so our USA and Australian friends will also have their own resident suppliers. HobbyKing as you say are Worldwide - just be careful which warehouse you buy from! We have many UK suppliers who sell a whole range of kits and fittings and I use Google to find local suppliers. SHGmodels are long established and do carry a vast range of bits and pieces for the model builder. Sorry no, I am not going to produce a 3D motor mount. No doubt someone will eventually do so via Thingiverse! Wayne must be on hols again. Was going to sail my Schooner today but there is no wind!!! Happy days Dave

Riva boat by Alan999 Sub-Lieutenant   Posted: 22 days ago
Taking time building this Chris Craft Riva boat from scrap plywood but fun and a lot cheaper than buying a complete kit. Have just finished the hull and giving so far four coats of varnish. It's about 31inches long so thats some boat. Howes have supplied all the fittings and I am pleased they post here to me in Spain. Next step is to find some small dials to put on the dashboard to add some Glitz!!.

What Gun? by Dave M Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 1 month ago
Hi Steve Your FPB is coming along nicely. Mine is still untouched but seeing your progress make me think I should start the refurb. Looking at the gun and other fittings I do believe the casings could best be fabricated on a 3D printer if you have some drawings and dimensions. I will be a Haydock and our stand is very near to Mike's gun stand so hope to see you when you visit. Dave

Deck furniture by rolfman2000 Captain   Posted: 1 month ago
Sorry guys... I should have added that Battlecrafts do loads of armaments in various scales for lots of ships. If you have the money, they have a complete set of fittings including guns, torpedoes, and ALL the deck fittings for both 1/24th and 1/32nd models of the Perkasa. I have only added a few bits plus both guns on my 34" one, but it does add a lot of "realism" to it. Pics will follow when she's complete 😊
