Does anyone have a copy of the October and November 1986 Model Boats Magazine that contained the build article on the Tyne Class lifeboat. I have purchased the plans and Hull from Sarik and have found a wonderful build article on this model. Thinking that this will test my scratch building skills, I would love to add this class Lifeboat to go along side my Solent. Photocopies of the build articles would be perfect, happy to meet all costs if reasonable. Thank you in advance.

Ebay Horrors by bilzin Sub-Lieutenant   Posted: 7 days ago
I saw an ad on Ebay listing a now discontinued Graupner kit of the Leanne Tön 12 shrimper and thought as it was no longer available I'd give it a try............mistake number one ! WHEN it finally arrived the box (water damaged) contained what the president of our model boat club described as 'a bag of bits' with about 40% of the parts missing and those that weren't were damaged in some way ie water damaged and warped. To cut a long story short, the seller was quite rude when I contacted him/her and refused point blank to refund my payment or accept a return. Furthermore I was accused of not sending true photographs of the contents of the package and denying other potential buyers the opportunity of bidding on this item. Finally, Ebay have considered this case and have ruled that not only is the item not as it was described , but that a refund must be made including the original postage fee. I realise that many unscrupulous sellers are of the mistaken belief that "NO RETURNS ACCEPTED" in their listing means just that, and that any old tat can be auctioned, but unfortunately for this seller that is not the case. I sincerely hope that this person has learnt the lesson that is not wise to attempt to " bullshit a bullshitter!" Lesson over !

Looking for an Aerokits Solent lifeboat by jarvo Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 13 days ago
Built ones are going for about £100 as in the post above, an unbuilt kit about the same price but yours may have some bits missing so, say about £75. As Dave M said the resto in Model Boats mag will drive up the price as people see how to do it. Hope this helps Mark

Motor problem by RichardSReade Sub-Lieutenant   Posted: 1 month ago
I like Blunt, the guy a Howes model shop, who was into boats himself retired and only worked there a couple of mornings a week, also said to remove the complete shaft and replace it with a metric one much the same as yourself, it is just the thought of what damage I may do to the boat as I know I fixed it in really well, he also said to get a 4mm prop-shaft and to see if the shaft would fit into the existing tube, so I am going to take both your advice and at this time go for a 4mm but try the shaft first, however I do not think pulling it out with mole grips will work on this occasion. Watch this space😡 Thanks

Question- Prop rotatio direction? by Skydive130 Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 2 months ago
Hi Dave, I’ve gone for the single electronize esc simply because the reviewer who did a refurb in septembers model boats mag and he seem to find it fine? I’ve modified the rudders in the hope that she will turn ok. If after testing I find it does have difficulty turning, I shall look at swapping the current esc for a pair. Thank you for your comments, kind regards sy

FLYSKY FS-I6S TRANSMITTER by Dave M Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 2 months ago
I have just ordered one to raffle for my club. We have similar FlySky sets in the club and they are suitable for all model boats. The set up is straight forward and all the controls you need such as end point and throw are available and as you say touch screen. You can also mix two channels to work off one stick (mainsail plus fore sail). No protruding aerial to get damaged and two buttons to switch on or off. There are reviews on U-tube and one did complain about the shape not allowing the set to stand on its base. This is possibly a benefit as there is no chance of it being knocked over. There is also an add on to allow a mobile phone or tablet to be attached above the Tx. There is two way comms that allows monitoring of the rx battery so I am guessing more comms can be added to work with the phone/tablet screen. I'll know more when I get my hands on the kit and will then post more details. The earlier versions need a software update so check that yours has been updated if you are not computer savvy. Spare receivers are also cheap to buy.

FELIX by RNinMunich Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 2 months ago
Hi Dave, actually it's a Harbour Tender, not a tug! The Home Port Zdenek has given her is Prague in English (although the original is based in Hamburg) ! Lovely city, once saw a Stones concert there👍😊 Prague I mean! Zdenek speaks Czech and Russian and some German, but his English is 'Google English'.😉 His work is superb, he has his own website with an incredible number of ship models par excellence of the most varied types. Somewhere in his numerous posts is the URL for his site. Maybe you can find videos there. See also his extensive Boat Harbour posts here 👍 He was kind enough to point me in the direction of a source of mini motors suitable for Plastic Magic, and also mailed me the plans for HMS Tyne, a ship I once worked on. An extremely talented and friendly guy.👍👍 Cheers Doug 😎

TAMIYA. King George V. by RNinMunich Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 2 months ago
Hi Colin, see what you mean!🤔 I have a digital subscription to Model Boats so I can read it online😉 Have 'extracted' the KGV &PoW article as pdf file. 😉 Unfortunately the stupid HTML reader only lets you 'print' two pages at a time so I ended up with 5 files! PM me your email and I will send them to you. This site has no pdf file handler🤔😡 In the meantime here's an article from the same guy describing the RC conversion of KM Bismarck, at 1:700 !! 😲 It's from the Forum. http://www.modelboats.co.uk/news/article/plastic-magic-km-bi... Cheers Doug 😎
