All hooked up, nowt happens... by rapidair65 Seaman   Posted: 1 month ago
Following this with some interest as I am about to convert my Arun lifeboat to a brushless set up using Turnigy Aerodrive motors and marine esc. Hoping to keep the two lead acid batteries for power as they make good ballast!

INTERNATIONAL MODEL BOAT SHOW by rolfman2000 Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 1 month ago
I'm going on Friday, as I'm not too good with crowds in my wheelchair. I'm meeting up with a few lifeboat enthusiasts at 12 midday at the cafe, if anyone is interested. You never know, might meet some off here. Best wishes, Dave W 😊

A Tragic Tale Unfolds by Westquay Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 2 months ago
A nice project, Neville. It must be terrible when a small community loses so many. The St. Abbs and Wells-next-the -Sea lifeboats were both lost and St. Abbs has fewer than a hundred inhabitants even today. I would love to be one of them. One of my favourite places. But a frightening reminder of what the sea can do. What are "Boat Days"? Martin

Solent class lifeboat by olly49 Chief Petty Officer   Posted: 2 months ago
Hi Andy, I bought and made the kit in the early 80's and I have 2 55mm Props fitted. Its name is the City of Birmingham and after speaking to other Solent owners I changed the Superstructure (port hole location and doors) Regards Alan

Solent class lifeboat by Andy1 Apprentice   Posted: 3 months ago
😁Hi all, I am new to this website, I have recently received boat plans for a 1/12 scale Solent class lifeboat of which I have started to build, the plans are dated for September 1976, I suspect they were originally for a kitt. My question is what size should the propellers be? As the model is going to spend most of it's time out of the water much detail would be most appreciated. Many thanks Andy.
