SARNIA by RNinMunich Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 10 days ago
Wonderful 👍 How about some musical underlay - 'I am sailing' Rod Stewart ?? 😉 Ah! Ilfracombe, lovely country. Used to pop down there from Weston Supermare in my youth. Doug 😎

Futaba antenna by Haverlock Admiral   Posted: 23 days ago
So long as the new antenna length is the same as the old no problem. You can cut the wire and replace with a length of piano ( music ) wire if you wish ( glue a bead on the end eye protection). The big no no is to coil the length up.

Huntsman blowing the dust off by pmdevlin Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 2 months ago
First time in a while, it saw daylight, Ideal weather, bright, mild, and choppy water, and music sort of makes it look faster! No doubt thge internet police will jump in about this😱

Engine Sound Effects by pmdevlin Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 6 months ago
for info, I wanted a very specific sound unit for my Jaws boat Orca. Rather than just playing engine sounds etc, I wanted to be able to select specific tracks, music, dialogue etc from the film. I got all I needed from the internet, and saved on an sd card. Using a free download to convert music files, (google "lame for audacity")I then found an engine noise that I was able to have on a continuous loop behind the dialogue etc. I then got a soundcard from technobots, and Alan devised a trigger unit, meaning I can select the tracks from a vacant channel on my transmitter sticks. eg, if I want the Jaws theme music, I have to move the stick 3 times up, if I want some dialogue from one of the characters, its 4 moves down, and so on, with something like 8 each direction, so 16 choices in all I am not tech savvy, and I found it pretty easy to do. The system is now several years old, so things have moved on, Alan will no doubt be able to help Paul

Task Force-50, Your, PA. USA FUN FLOAT by Phrogphlyer Chief Petty Officer   Posted: 9 months ago
Our July, 2016 Fun Float was a great success! The weather was perfect and we had a great number of spectators, met a few new Captains who just came to sail with us and see what we are about! We had up to 6 scale sail boats on the water and several powered boats. We were also experimenting with "on board video" which we are setting to music and commentary. Even the wives enjoyed the day of great weather, a snack bar, walking trails and each others company. There was even talk about relocating our regatta to the "Muddy Run" location.

Aeronaut Pilot Boat by cormorant Captain   Posted: 11 months ago
Hi Ed Sorry for the delay but I have just spent a superb weekend in Antwerp watching the start of the Tall Ships Race, a 70th birthday treat from my wife. Just as an appetiser I have attached a picture of the CUAUHTEMOC, a square rigger of the Mexican Navy. She was just leaving the port to the sound of loud Mexican music. We watched the crew climb the masts before leaving the quayside. A truly fantastic sight. Work on the pilot boat has been put on hold but I will shortly be giving the hull its final touches before a second coat of primer then undercoat. Will attach more pics then. Steve

Still love the background music!

Sailing a straight line by Trillium Commander   Posted: 11 months ago
I have not been able to do more testing yet, but I can provide more information as requested. I have not seen any consistency in which direction it deviates from the straight line. That is the most puzzling part of this. If it always went one way, it would point me in the right direction, so to speak. I do know that before I replaced both motors, one shaft would always run a little slower than the other, but I used to compensate for that with the throttle to get it sailing straight. I now have two Electronize motors installed, which appear to run at the same speed, but I haven't put a meter on them. Mtroniks Viper Marine ESC's are used for control. This is a 1/64 scale model of the Royal Iris, the Wallasey cruise/ferry vessel. Amongst other operational tricks, they would depart from a landing stage by going astern on the outboard screw and ahead on the inboard, to swing the bow out before moving ahead. Straight line sailing is necessary, but manoeuvring is more fun, which is why I have (and want to keep) independent control of the screws. The hull is self-built, balsa plank on frame and then fibreglassed. It is powered by four 6V NiMH battery packs arranged in series-parallel to provide a single 12V supply. This also supplies the lighting in the superstructure. The radio is powered separately by a 6V non-rechargeable alkaline battery pack. NiMH batteries are used to keep the weight down so that the hull immersion is correct; four packs are used to distribute the weight and trim the hull correctly. The model also carries a speaker/sound system, which plays period music, and has its own battery.

Guestbook Post by modbot Chief Petty Officer   Posted: 1 year ago
Just kind of stumbled across this site as I was trying to find out what had happened to eezibilt web site. I am in the process or should that be building a Tortola sloop, well it will be my version as it seems there are variations on the theme..( as in music) , I'm also making a X2 version of Eezibulit Curlew, I've done the original and a 75% version. 1.5 X version, so now I'm going for the big one, TWICE the size, comes out at 20 and a 1/2 inches. might be a bit more once the skins are on? I made a larger version of Mermaid but thought it didnt look too great...the original I have sailed on Loch Ken in Scotland, a long way to go to sail a boat but I was on holiday up there. I think along with Curlew they are nice little boats. Just one other question Does anyone know the whereabouts of HArry Duncan I was emailing him up to a while ago but now he seems to have gone awol? Dont forget to ring 5 and go sideways... 💭

PCF (Patrol Craft Fast) SWIFT Boat Vietnam Era by pmdevlin Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 2 years ago
HI All, I have very reluctantly decided to see if anybody would like to own my recently completed model of above. It has taken 18 months to complete, I have spent a very long time researching the real thing, this was modelled on an actual boat that served in the Vietnam war. This is a fresh build, so its not all damp and dusty and untested sitting in a garden shed for the last few years! In summary, it has a unique custom build drive train, 100% direct drive, ball raced, water cooled twin screw brushless outrunners. You cannot buy something like this. The glass fibre hull is complemented for strength and lightness with plastic and ply wheelhouse and cabins etc. Lets get to the point, its £525. Might seem very expensive to some, but to others that will appreciate the unique individualism, and the amount of work that has gone into this, will see that it has a top end value. The only other Swift Boat available is the much smaller Deans Marine kit, nearly £300 unmade, no running gear, I spent over £60 just on paint and weathering materials , even the flag was a special order in silk so it hangs and moves realistically The figures where sourced from America, very rare and expensive, £25 each, and there are 5 that have been remodelled to suit this boat. Even the 50 calibre bullets for the guns where individually hand painted. The authentic decals where special ordered from America also. Most of the poor quality white metal fittings and parts have been replaced with custom hand made brass or aluminium parts, again these cannot be bought to this quality. It has working nav lights, cabin lights, wheelhouse lights, rear deck spot light, front searchlight, twin gun turret spot lights and mast lights, operated from your transmitter from two separate circuits so you have a variety of light sequence options. A digital receiver voltage display is visible in a cabin window to prevent loss of signal due to low voltage. Also included is a Bluetooth operated sound unit, which can be operated using an included sd card which has a selection of Vietnam era music, or by Bluetooth from your phone, making this a real pleasure to sail! I will leave the receiver in if a buyer will be using a spectrum transmitter, you need your own transmitter, and possible batteries. I use lipos, we can discuss this if purchased. A custom made storage box is included It comes with spare parts, plans, and various instructions. I will deliver to Wirral, Merseyside or Cheshire, or can meet within that sort of radius. Postage is not an option, its way too big and heavy, overseas delivery is excluded, it will get broken as its fragile. If sold, the buyer will receive a comprehensive hand over to fully appreciate how the boat operates. You need a minimum of 4 channels on the transmitter to fully enjoy all the features of this boat. Maybe the timing is wrong, just before Christmas, I am selling as it just wont get enough use and it needs to be enjoyed, my new hobby of rc flying is also very expensive, so funds are needed for this! A comprehensive build log is available to see, please pm me if interested. Whilst the boat would make a real nice ornament, it really needs to be used and enjoyed, on the few occasions I have sailed, it looks fantastic and draws a crowd. Thanks for looking, treat yourself! 👍

swordsman by wombatjames Sub-Lieutenant   Posted: 2 years ago
You are talking about a very small industry which does not, in any way, have the sort of 'Royalties' income which a music star might have. If a company is deceased then the use of any plan is generally open game. The latest kit plans also do not bear much resemblance to the hand drawn and printed images of the 1950's and 60's. I produced the Kitshack range of models, loosely based on some early kits, but with modern techniques and changes to improve design, the drawings do not compare to the originals in many ways. Copyright infringement is hard to challenge, as just one change to the model design will change the copyright issue. If we followed on design intent, even Vosper could challenge when a model is made of one of their boats. The moto is 'build and have fun' don't destroy a niche hobby by bureaucracy

swordsman by andrewandrachel Petty Officer   Posted: 2 years ago
I am not not not trying to incite un lawfull actively on this site or any another site or in anything in life. I was just debeating if any one has a plan of a swordsman or huntsman and if the plans should be now free. Re CDs and music _ films and art I think the copyright is 70 years now cliff Richards royalties where in danger. So selling film and music is wrong. design I think is 25 years that is why the kit car movement make replica cars.technically the copyright of any design belongs to the full size designer so when we make a model we technically go against a lot of kit and plans also break copyright. Some ful size companies licence there design to model companies if it is a new model ( lotus) I will try to contact a friend who is a top rc aircarft designer on the copyright issue and try to be back to you. I am again trying not to encourage illegal activity just debating.

Royal Iris by Trillium Commander   Posted: 2 years ago
Another Mersey ferry and another Royal Iris. This is 1:64 scale (3/16":ft), measures 29" long and weighs 11lbs. Powered by NiMH 6V batteries and Electronize 365-14 motors. It is fitted with either a self-contained sound system playing the 60's "Liverpool sound " music, or fitted with 12V NiMH batteries to illuminate the lights.
