huntsman plan by AndyG009 Chief Petty Officer   Posted: 15 days ago
As Zdenek says, you can get a set of effectively any of the original Fairey boats form Charles Lawrence, there is a General Assembly drawing and a Hull Lines drawing. Some of the Hull Lines drawings have been prepared by Alan Burnett for modellers in the past. They look to me like they are scans of original drawings to myself. If people wonder why they are at 1 : 12 scale, simples the originals way back in the 1960's when some of them were drawn, in the days when we used 'real' measurements. They are 1 inch = 1 foot (2.54 mm = 304.8 mm)

huntsman plan by Zdenek Chief Petty Officer   Posted: 16 days ago
Tony, according to my latest "investigation", there is also a possibility of purchasing a modellers set of plans form The Fairey Owners’ Club. The plan is at a scale of 1:12 and it is a copy of the original Fairey drawings. Two sheets show the plan, long section and cross sections. The contact is Charles Lawrence, email: czczcz@me.com Zdenek

Guestbook Post by Brightwork Admiral   Posted: 18 days ago
I really love this site. I have been to many model boat sites, but this is the best I have found. The layout and ease of use is great. I thoroughly enjoy looking at the other modeller's harbours and builds. If you are boat blind like I am, this is model boat porn to me.

MY other hobby build. by colinhubbard Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 30 days ago
That's a good scale to work in for us older imperial modellers, I hate metric. Cheers Colin.

3 blades v 2 blades on air boat by onetenor Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 1 month ago
It's really a case of suck it and see .Experiment is my mantra for stuff like this.Just try it and see what the results are. You could ask the aero bods on say Aeromodeller or RCME ( Flying Models ) forums of a number of others.👍

3d printing by Delboy Chief Petty Officer   Posted: 2 months ago
If you don't have access to a 3D printer, it might be worth your while checking whether their is a local Maker space you can join. They will almost certainly have a 3D printer you can borrow and are likely to also have laser cutting, metal turning and milling, and a host of other facilities normally outside the pocket of the average modeller. We are just starting up our Maker space in Guernsey but to find out if you have one near you, check www.nesta.org.uk/uk-makerspace-data.

Hobby Engine Richardson Upgrade by RNinMunich Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 2 months ago
Re Technobots Sound Units- "As part of our review into the product ranges we stock, this engine sound unit is no longer available from Technobots. We have been the retail outlet for the excellent engine sound module designs of Alan Bond of Forge Electronics for many years and have proudly supplied over 1,000 of these units to modellers around the world. The good news is that Alan is going to continue production of the programmable sound unit so please visit the Forge-Electronics website for pricing and availability. Our rather popular and well respected range of single voice and combo engine sound units have had a makeover! They still have the same great sounds but are even more user friendly." https://www.technobotsonline.com/combo-engine-sound-unit-mk2... Doug 😎

What paint type by RNinMunich Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 2 months ago
Hi Scotty (How are the dilithium crystals doing? 😉) Was expecting one of the vintage boat / Fireboat modellers to jump in here! Since no one did here's my two-pennyworth. Basically I consider the actual paint as cosmetic and not primarily to seal out water. Unless you want to use 2 part epoxy paints, which are not so easy to handle🤔 I used it on my U26 sub and it was pain in the you-no-where. First I would use sanding sealer inside and out. Then EzeKote or ClearKote inside and out. Especially where you want to let the planking shine! 👍 From Deluxe Materials - available Down Under from - see pic. this toughens the hull and gives added protection against knocks and bangs. Many of us then paint the inside with Hammerite, colour and texture, hammer or smooth etc, personal choice. This looks neat and is easy to keep clean. Out side acrylic is the easiest and most pleasant to use; water based so the painting tools are easy to clean with warm water and no dangerous to health or inflammable solvents. Easy to airbrush too😉 When the colour coat is finished and good an' dry you can then apply an acrylic clear lacquer coat, matt, silk or gloss as you wish. Hope this helps, cheers Doug 😎

St. Albans model show. by robbob Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 2 months ago
I’m pleased to report that the fireboat finally got it’s bottom wet at the St. Albans model exhibition last weekend. Sadly it was only in the very small temporary pond that the club set up for the ‘have a go’ boats during the ‘free sailing’ session at the end of the second day, nevertheless it was a good ‘tank test’ for the motor and systems. The boat gets up onto a plane immediately and crossed the water into the hands of a ‘catcher’ on the opposite corner in seconds and when held static under full throttle it’s quite a job to counter the thrust. She sits nicely on the waterline but needs a small amount of ballast to correct a very small list to port, and I also need to extend the rudder servo limits to reduce the turning circle a bit. It’s a shame that there was no one to hand to take some action pictures and video so I only have a few static shots that I took. The St. Albans model show was itself a phenomenal success with public attendances breaking all records over last year and was well supported by numerous other clubs and societies. The glorious weather on both days also helped too! If you attended the show I hope you had as much fun as I did 😁 It was also great to chat with other modellers who inspected my boat in the clubs display room at the show, many of whom have also made this model or have one under construction, it's was a pleasure meeting you all. Robbob.

Model German docks from Krick, ABS hull, superstructure plywood, model is illuminated with reflector, position lights and mast, drive DC motor MIG 500 Boat 12V, controller 45A Turnigy bidirectional, LiPol battery 7.4 V 4000mA. The model has good stability and driving characteristics. I recommend this kit to all mildly advanced modellers. Good and accurate version of the model kit.😉
