Sanding done by steve-d Commander   Posted: 2 months ago
Just found an answer to my antenna 'White Stick'. At work we use a WD40 type fluid and the can comes with a tube you can use with the nozzle. Some new cans came in and they have nice white tubes...result. Steve

Now there's a coincidence!😲 I recently saw a documentary about this ship, I think was in the 'Lost Places' series. Took her months to sail to Oz. Not much left now 😭 Interesting prop, looks like the style used in Kort nozzles and water jets. Colin; Rabeosch & co do these types. See attached cat. Very nicely done Sir, 👍👍 Any chance of a video of her in her element?? 😁 Cheers, Doug 😎

Rebuild starts by RNinMunich Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 5 months ago
Mornin Peter, That's probably your best bet👍 I find it convenient to use my cheaper single action airbrush with a 0.8 nozzle / needle setup for larger stuff like hulls, and keep the more sophisticated dual action set with a 0.5 (very occasionally 0.3) for detail work or the smaller 1/350 ships. For the latter rattle cans are of course totally useless, but the scale is just to big for decent brush painting (for me anyway😲) Saves having to fiddle about changing the setup so often😉 Happy spraying, cheers, Doug 😎

Hi Doug. Iwata do not do a 0.8mm nozzle for my air brush. I will look into whether my other cheap one can be altered.😊

Launch ELAINE, by Colin H. Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 5 months ago
Well today the radio specialist guys checked out the reciever for me, apparently it would need a new capacitor, a 90 volt and a 2 volt supply. Not really possible in such a small boat. So I've decided to use it for my vintage displays. The boat itself will be renovated and fitted with an electric motor, possibly a 600 as I have a couple in the spares box. Still looking for a way to remove the kitchen nozzle system. The motors that operate it are working so hopefully should be controllable by modern rc gear. Might need Dougs help designing a system I can build. BTW the Hull and cabins and deck is constructed from 1/4 Inc ply. Bit heavy but good and solid except for some of the frames are very soft and crumbly. Will start a resurrection blog soon. Cheers Colin.

Well Martin, sorry to put adampner on the proceedings but she does have throttle control, but the return spring broke during the test. Have removed all except the nozzle control as I haven't figured out how to remove it without damage yet.

BTW, that prop shaft looks like it hasn't been sealed in it's hole in the keel. Wonderful though the kitchen nozzle is, It must cause huge drag. Cheers, Martin

Launch ELAINE, by Westquay Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 5 months ago
Fantastic stuff, Colin. If you can get that ancient engine to run on diesel from your car plus Methanol, you could get that kitchen nozzle going! Where did you just get some methanol from? I'd say the engine is something like an old ED Competition Special or similar with a very home made water jacket and even more home made exhaust wrapper, requiring tubes to be added to the 2 stubs and led to the stern or either side. Doug's yer man for anything lecktrickal. Is there actually anything of the original RC in there apart from that superb kitchen nozzle affair, which deserves to be preserved all on it's own. Control will have been vestigial at best as the engine has no throttle and the nozzle arrangement will not have had any level of proportionality to it. It will, at best, have been push the button and see where the boat ended up, knowing it could, at a a pinch, be brought back to where it started. At one time all RC was like that. My own REP set was left,centre, right, centre, etc. A wonderful throwback that must be preserved. I wish my local junk shops had stuff like that! Cheers, Martin

Launch ELAINE, by Colin H. Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 5 months ago
Thanks Doug, I sort of gathered this principle but had no idea how to control it. There are two motors connected via reduction gears and levers to move the two parts into the various nozzle shapes for the thrust and the whole thing rotates via one of the motors also with reduction gearbox. The pictures are the best I could do with it still in the boat as I have not figured out how to remove it without damage yet.

So far, only checked the engine, it ran using a little diesel from my car mixed with a few drips of methanol. Throttle spring broke and the flames from the exhaust were about 4 inches long but it sounds healthy enough. As for the radio gear I'm afraid I don't have a clue. Have managed to get the rudder nozzle gear to move using 6 volt battery, but all the connecting wires are missing. Lots of wood inside that needs attention, seems a bit too soft. Cheers Colin.

Maggie M by ikseno99 Chief Petty Officer   Posted: 5 months ago

Maybe time for a refit

Mahogany in Scale by Colin H. Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 5 months ago
Well Martin, its their loss. I try to make everything except the electrics. I suppose I'm lucky in being a retired prototype engineer, with my own machines and space to work. These days I am restoring more than building, I find it more challenging. Spotted a vintage boat in antique shop today, it had diesel marine power and valve and relay control system with a strange adjustable korts nozzle arrangement. I am trying to get the wife to let me buy it. Cheers Colin.

Painting. by RNinMunich Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 6 months ago
Evenin' Neville, For a first attempt spraying that's damn good👍 I prefer to use a 0.8mm nozzle for 'big' areas such as hulls. 0.5 for the 'fine' stuff, e.. cabins and fittings, which I still need to practice! Will need it when I come to the cammo pattern for PT109. Practice makes perfect they say! Basic rules (THEY also say😁) are- Paint consistency should remind you of milk (no cream!), Don't get to close, Don't move too slow! Keep up the good work👍 Cheers, Doug 😎
