I signed on in January this year and was amazed at how many projects are on the go.The advice that is being offered so freely makes me feel good about this site.The quality of workmanship that people are showing is amazing.As soon as my obligations are completed I will get back to my building of the Model Slipway kit of the Shamrock. Don from Toronto.
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?

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.
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 .
