Model Boats Magazine October November 1986 by Skydive130 Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 11 days ago
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.

Looking for an Aerokits Solent lifeboat by jarvo Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 19 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

Hull painting and trimline by Skydive130 Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 2 months ago
After over 24 hours of paint and laquer setting time, have this morning before bed (on nights) added the white trim line and RNLI flags. As I said in a previous post, adding a thin white line between top red and blue is not seen on the real thing, however I feel it gives a nicer finish and therfore is staying! RNLI flags at the stern are probably not on the orginals either? at the end of the day, this is never going to be 100% scale, but my interpritation on the classic lines and if I am honest after 30 years of building RC Aircraft ect, I have enjoyed building this as much if not more than anything in the past. Simply because it started with a set of plans and a set of inacurate templates and the hours are starting to pay off in what I hope will look good on the water, that moment is at worst only a couple of weeks away? I have ordered some smaller gold lettering for the name as the stuff I have is too big and will look stupid, that may well arrive today? Once the rubbing strake has been fitted this week the hull will be all but done apart from the deck fittings. Stanchions almost finished, will finish those tonight at work. Ive started thinking ahead to my next project? I was considering the plan featured in the Nov Model Boats Mag "Fairy Huntress 23", then i stumbled upon a set of plans and templates for the old Veron Vosper RTTL 28 inch which I bought. This being made of balsa and ply I consider it to be about the same weight and performance when finished to the Huntress. So on that note I will be including the same electric set-up as the huntress. This means going back to Brushless and LIpo, a subject I am more than familiar with. All electrics ordrered from Hobbyking and will collect on Tuesday as I live 3 miles from them! Reasoning behind this model is I am in the Military and like Military stuff, thefore prefered over the civillian Huntress!! I shall base my Vosper on the example displayed at RAF Hendon.

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.

TAMIYA. King George V. by RNinMunich Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 3 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 😎
