Fire boat by robbob Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 3 months ago
Hi Kevin. Welcome to the forum. A resin fittings kit for the 1:16 (34.5 inch) fireboat is available from SLEC: They are made from styrene and are consequently won't add too much additional weight. There is also a white metal fitting kit available from Model Slipway: http://www. style='background-color:yellow;'> This set looks more comprehensive and will add a bit more weight but will be much sturdier. Not forgetting the range of 1:16 fittings available from the 'Model Shop' on this site.👍 I hope that's helpful. Robbob.

Al Khubar 2 by Dave M Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 3 months ago
Really well built model of the Slipway kit. The detail is really good and some excellent pics. I see you put a raised coaming round the rear deck opening, should keep the water out. Congratulations on finishing. Have you another project in mind?

Building base boards. by RNinMunich Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 5 months ago
Hi Granpa, that's a 'skirting board' in UK! 😉 Colin means a Building board. Like your own model slipway. Though I'm not sure what is to be adjustable!? 😲 Cheers Doug 😎

Propulsion Hegi Revell Fairplay V tug model by Dave M Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 8 months ago
Hi Radiosailor I was not familiar with the model so have just searched. The Tug forum has an article by a member who did some mods. If you register you can see the pics and ask for advice. Regarding fixed or steerable nozzles they both work better than a standard prop. For maximum effect the steerable works best and this will certainly be the case with a single prop. I have had both types on tugs but mine were twin screw and I could turn both on the spot with independent motor control. From the motors you have I suspect the Xdrive 555 may have the best torque which as Doug said is best for Tugs. There are several suppliers but without knowing any measurements it's difficult to point you to a specific site. It should make into a nice model and will certainly look the part on the water. If you look on Model Slipiway's web site http://www. style='background-color:yellow;'> they have a kit Al Khubar and AZIZ which are twin Kort. There are links to build blogs for the AZIZ which may be useful. Model Boats and MMI also had featured articles on builds for Al Khubar.

1/20th scale Patrol boat by rossiter Petty Officer   Posted: 9 months ago
I have recently bought an old Model Slipway, 1/20th Vosper Kawkab class patrol boat, and I've been trying to find suitable figures to fit without success, I assume they should be approx 80-90mm. Any ideas please? Thanks in advance.

Tamar motor help by alan50 Petty Officer   Posted: 9 months ago
Hi all Just got around to start building a Modelslipway 1/16 Tamar . This being my first model boat and RC I am at a loss to what motors to fit . I would prefer to install conventional brushed motors ,but the ones recommended a few years ago 600 eco are no longer available Would be grateful for any proven recommendations ,or any easy setup using brushless without cooling . Trying to keep it simple and not too expensive Thanks in advance for any comments .
