Amara by Rod Petty Officer   Posted: 1 day ago
I built this one from a Caldercraft kit and powered it with a twin screw steam engine Model has steam horn sound together with bilge pump and fully equipped lighting system Have extensively weathered the model to create realism to imitate what it probably looked like after many years steaming and working round the world in the 1930's A smoke generator has also been fitted which together with the twin screw steam engine gives a realistic look when on the water

I was asking if you and your club members would be interested in some interclub fun racing, not a link for your club site.

Her Majesty's Savior by RedRider Sub-Lieutenant   Posted: 1 day ago
This is a Dumas Coast Guard Life boat lit given to me from my now wife for Christmas 2014. I've scratch built model planes (50 years ago) but never a boat. So, I'm learning on the job, as they say. Just started on the power train this past week before I do any top deck work.

Do any of your club members own "club 500's", just wondered if you may be interested in a bit of "interclub race fun"

RN Outpost Munich by Dave M Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 2 days ago
Hi Doug Welcome to the site. Regarding a club you could either continue with the name or rename it to reflect the sailing location "Ostpark, Munich". You may also want to include reference to "the Biergarten". Sounds the sort of place any old salts would be happy to frequent. I hope you attract some fellow members, it's surprising how many live in the area and are looking for some where to sail their models.

Perkasa 49 inch by Dave M Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 2 days ago
Neodym magnets are excellent for holding hatches, decks etc in place. I have just sourced a selection from ebay and bought two 10x10mm. had not considered using as a rescue aid but these magnets are exceptionally strong and once attached are very difficult to remove so certainly up to rescuing a model. We sail many yachts and it can be difficult to find a safe attachment without causing damage. I do hope you keep us posted on the automation of you features. On water shots are always good especially if they capture other models on the water. Dave

Planking the Hull by Dave M Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 2 days ago
Thanks for the update Kevin Descriptions with pics help new and aspiring modellers to perhaps start building. Our members have a wealth of information and are very good at providing solutions or help. Dave

garibaldi by Mansell Petty Officer   Posted: 2 days ago
Having achieved my mission in finding a home for my kit I would prefer one to one contact so I can leave the Model Boat Website as I keep getting lots of unwanted emails. I am grateful for being put in contact with you. My email is what do you say?

HMCS Sackville - WWII Corvette by gordc Petty Officer   Posted: 2 days ago
The boiler is 10 inches long and 4 inches in diameter. I designed it using the guidelines in one of Martin Evans' model engineering books. The centre flue is roughly 2 inches in diameter. The boiler volume is just over 1 litre to the top of the gauge glass. I bought the ceramic burner from Maccsteam. After lighting with gas, I switch to a liquid propane/butane mixture which turns to vapour in the evaporating coil on the outside of the flue.

RAF Target and Towing launch (Kitshack) by reilly4 Chief Petty Officer   Posted: 2 days ago
That's a great model. Do you have any photos or videos of the boat at speed?
