Mahogany in Scale by Colin H. Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 2 months ago
Well Martin, its their loss. I try to make everything except the electrics. I suppose I'm lucky in being a retired prototype engineer, with my own machines and space to work. These days I am restoring more than building, I find it more challenging. Spotted a vintage boat in antique shop today, it had diesel marine power and valve and relay control system with a strange adjustable korts nozzle arrangement. I am trying to get the wife to let me buy it. Cheers Colin.

robbe neptun tug boat by figtree7nts Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 10 months ago
Hi Nutrunner, It's a great little tug, good response from the kort nozzle! I built one over 30 yrs ago! Good memories! I used a 7.2 volt NiCad back then. It ran for hours on one battery!

Propulsion Hegi Revell Fairplay V tug model by RNinMunich Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 1 year ago
Hi, I can't profess to be a Tug expert but I believe the general rule is 'Low revs & Hi Torque'. I hope one of the tug fans here will pick up this thread. Also this forum might be useful to you; a discussion on kort nozzles & tugs 'Fixed or steerable'. https://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showthread.php?1536288-Steer... Good luck, let us know how it goes. Cheers Doug 😎

Propulsion Hegi Revell Fairplay V tug model by Radiosailor Sub-Lieutenant   Posted: 1 year ago
I recently bought a on Ebay 'stranded' vintage harbourtug which will be fully rebuild. (I actually bought a NOS hull, and old - but good build - superstructure and all the deckgear & fittings. Except for some essential parts... There's no kortnozzle/rudder and propellor. I would like to know what size of nozzle and propdiameter I should mount. Originally it was designed with a steering nozzle/rudder, but the only item which comes close is the fixed nozzle as used on the Robbe Happy Hunter salvage tug model.(which has twin nozzles) That nozzle would be fixed with a seperate rudder for steering. What would you advise? What alternatives are available? (Making a proper nozzle myself which actually works and looks to scale is out of the question.) Attached three photos: one showing original (steering nozzle) and teh other with this Happy Hunter fixed nozzle, and te drawing showing the design.

Alan you are right they are from another thread this was just a quick option I will try & get the trawler out later it is up in the garage loft & take some pictures for you, as I remember the motor was amidships to allow room for a 12v battery the servo horn is straight to the kort nozzle rudder arm pleased to help if I can Bob 👍
