Fittings and finishing by Novagsi0 Lieutenant   Posted: 10 days ago
Cheers all - I showed her the comments since she doesn't do computers. She's keen to go to the model boat show Warwick to see how much they sell for, since she's been making them for various boats over the last 50 years.

Nice detailed scale model shown in her real environment. If you are building please post a build blog.

FLYSKY FS-I6S TRANSMITTER by Dave M Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 12 days ago
Hi Les That's the unit one of my fellow sailors has. It's almost identical specs but can store 20 models as against the 10 for FS-1A16s. If you look at the U-tube videos I suggested you can see a review and I chose this as it is less cluttered as you say and possibly easier to use for say a novice. As this is being raffled any problems will probably end up at my door so I do hope I have made the right choice. I do believe they use the same RX but the binding instructions caused my friend a problem. There is a U-tube video showing the correct way to do this so not really a problem. It's down to personal choice really and if you are happy with the set and it works OK I believe I would hold on to it as it will be OK for the yacht. Please keep us posted with your progress as others will benefit from your experience.

FLYSKY FS-I6S TRANSMITTER by Les-Forbes Commander   Posted: 12 days ago
Hi Dave. Sorry for the confusion. This is the FLYSKY unit I have. The FS-i6. The company that supplied me it provided the wrong transmitter. As a gesture of goodwill they are offering to replace it with the model FS-i6s. And I was wondering if it has other facilities or easier to program. It certainly look cleaner and less cluttered. The photo showing the plug at the back is infact the FLYSKY FS-i6.

PROBOAT WESTWARD 18 by Radiosailor Sub-Lieutenant   Posted: 13 days ago
Yes, it should. I do not know the Proboat Westward 18 in detail, but have gained quite some experience on many other sailing models. I do own a Micro Magic, which rig can be fully tuned to perfection. The Graupner downhaul for instance can also be bought seperatly.(and could be a good upgrade to the vang on your boat.) This pic shows one - altough the boom has been mounted upside down.

Graupner Rubin by Radiosailor Sub-Lieutenant   Posted: 13 days ago
[Score: 5/10] 43" Graupner Rubin - Comments: This is one of my two Graupner Rubin yachts. The Rubin is - to me - the all time queen of RC semi scale yachts. Detailed, impressive dimensions, fast, very rare and barely affordable. When new I wasn't able to pay for such a model, but as one gets older... Anyway, after finishing some others my attention will go to these two. Why having two of the same models? They are very rare, and I was just in the opportunity to buy another. The first one - shown here - needs a thorough rebuild, and the second one is an almost untouched new model!

Propulsion Hegi Revell Fairplay V tug model by Radiosailor Sub-Lieutenant   Posted: 13 days 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.

T. I.D Tug by Dave M Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 16 days ago
I got mine with a hull from Martins Models at an E Port show some years ago. I believe Skelmersdale Models bought some of his hulls and plans so they may be able to help.

Back online again. by colinhubbard Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 17 days ago
Hi there all you boaters, just a quick note to say I now have my replacement pc. So looking forward to updating you on my models, so i'll be uploading some new pics shortley and doing a build blog hopefully in conjunction with RNinMunich, if we can agree about how to proceed. Mine will be the King George V conversion to RC. Also I will be having surgery on my Knee and possibly Hip very soon, then without the constant pain killers I can get back to my Modelling. Pics show a few of my ongoing projects, Best wishes to all Colin.

Chesapeak Bay Maritime Museum by pugwash1 Seaman   Posted: 17 days ago
This is way more than just a maritime museum. The location in the heart the Chesapeak Bay Area, the home of the only sail ” fishing fleet in the U.S.A. No power drives at all with the exception of small ”pusher” units, kind of tiny, with room for a motor only! These are used to aid in getting to the fishery. The traditional boat is a Skipjack and the museum is a living boat yard. So even when there is no events there is always something to see. Model boat days are held around a large square tempary pool. One day is for scale and live steam, and another is free sail and model skipjack racing. We do not have control of the weather but I can not remember anything but sun on the days I have been there👍. The team at the museum are a great group of ladies and gentlemen who are passionate in their love of the sea and on model days you will find loads of helpful tips etc from all the “captains”. If you are visitors on holiday, Anapolis is no more than three quarters of an hour away, this is the home of the Rodgers collection of dockyard models and the worlds largest collection of French prisoner of war bone models (napolionic) in the world, it is a super nautical town! the Chesapeake museum is in St.Michaels, with lots of super shopping for the non model boating spouses. Further up the road on Tilghman island is a fantastic nautical book store who specializes in model ships and boats. However you need to visit the book store a day before the show day as everyone will be looking for that rare and special book!!!!! Hope this is a help.

Blackpool Model Show by 4clubs Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 20 days ago
Great show, much improved. Don't miss it!

Blackpool Model Show by Dave M Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 20 days ago
I attended last year and the lighting was fine. There was a whole additional area dedicated to model trucks which I found fascinating and a welcome addition. The traders list is impressive and there are many clubs attending so that together with a visit to the Blackpool with its bracing sea air will make for another great show Dave
