Springer Pusher Tug by jarvo Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 4 days ago
Hi Allen, the Zippkits Springer is a reasonable, cheap model, there are better, but usually from plans, several in my club no bad reports etc. A 600 size motor and 12 volt sla seems to do the job well. Mark

if you go into the plans section go to thethe one called tamar life boat it was origanally posted by Sonar at the bottom of the tamar section click on back to home this goes to a eezibuild home page that has all the plans ,building tips and loads of pictures ,the plans are a free download or print ,they print in the original size so A3paper has to be taped together ,I am currently building the 50+RAF fire boat

Hi Jarvo. Thanks, I should have told everyone that. It is where I downloaded the plans and then used them in Excel. Pity there weren't more free sites like that. Everyone is too interested in making a few bob out of us these days.

Hi AllenA, Did you know there is a dedicated web site for Eezebilt plans? They also have some new models in the old style. Mark

KeilKraft 1974 by AllenA Commander   Posted: 8 days ago
Hi Dave, I have just about all the Eezebilt plans on computer if you ever feel like doing another one give me a shout. Regards Allen

huntsman plan by Black Dog Jack Seaman   Posted: 8 days ago
Now you mention it, I might have got carried away there! I now think I must have sent off for the plans after reading the two articles. Apologies guys. (Sulks and shuffles off, head down).

Deck furniture by RNinMunich Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 13 days ago
You're right Rolf, they ain't cheap, but they look damn good! Just ordered a set of 4.7s for HMS Hotspur. Up to now had only found such guns in 1/96 and everything here (Germany) seems to be 1/100 🤔 Unfortunately Battle Crafts don't do the fiddly quad Vickers 0.5 MGs, so I went for a later fit of twin 20mm and built them from 0.5mm brass to John Lambert (God rest his brilliant soul) plans. Here the link - otherwise if you just Google Battle Crafts you'll get zig million links to online wargames😡 Tip/request to all: When recommending please include the link👍 Saves a lot of time filtering out the rubbish! Cheers Doug 😎

Trumpeter Seawolf Conversion by haleskevin Petty Officer   Posted: 17 days ago
I have seen this done a few times online and figured it would be a quick turn around; I was wrong. Every time I think I have it licked, another problem arises. I am at two pumps, one motor, two micro switches and three servos. I do not have batteries or cooling for the motor figured out. But when I get tired of my scratch builds I go back to this. I did my math and six vessels await my attention plus these two fine examples. Then, I start looking at plans for another one. I may have a problem. Latest picture is the ballast tank sealed with fittings.

Looking for a Sea Queen by rolfman2000 Commander   Posted: 20 days ago
Hi onetenor, I do have a set of plans available to me, but these days, sadly, due to disability, I am not up to building one from scratch. One member from my own club, and kind members off here have already offered sets of plans, which I have had to turn down, but was grateful for the offer of. I cannot afford a new kit (at approximately £200), so I am looking at a model to restore, hopefully, not in too bad a state. Best wishes, Dave W 😊

Sea Queen refurbishment by BOATSHED Commander   Posted: 22 days ago
RNinMunich, I presume you are situated in Munich. We can get helium in several places here in the UK. Even one high street shop, ARGOS. It is also available through AMAZON. Don't know if that's of any help or even if you were serious as to where you could get it ?? I am 66 (almost 67, in 4 weeks)and have been boat modelling since the age of nine and have also progressed from IC and Taycol to brushless but still use all types. Have also gone into purchasing ready to run, but still get a buzz from the building the model from a kit, have even shrunk and enlarged from plans to build other size models. I haven't tried the 3D printers, not sure about that side of it yet. I find this site a very interesting and helpful place. But I am not as adventurous as some with all the detail they go into. Please keep adding info to this site.

VERNON River Police Launch by Northumbrian Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 24 days ago
I built this from a set of plans that i had sized up it measures 43"x12" & runs on a 1400kv Outrunner Motor / 40A esc / 11.1v 5000mah battery 3 bladed Brass 50mm M4 Prop I was waiting delivery of a new camera so could not record the earlier stages of the build

Precedent Huntsman 34" by boaty Commander   Posted: 26 days ago
I like the Precedent Huntsman very much and I built one from the kit many years ago. It was the wooden hull version and it was quite fast with an MFA 850 Torpedo motor running on 12 volts. I sold it in 2004 and now I wish I hadnt. However I bought a 34 inch fibreglass hull this year at the Ellesmere Port show and I wondered if Precedent are still manufacturing kits as I have no plans for the superstructure. Boaty😎

Billings Sea King in need of TLC by AllenA Commander   Posted: 28 days ago
Walked into the boot sale this morning and saw this from 50yds. It's a Sea King needing some love and attention. She is 27.5" long with a 9" beam. Twin como motors, futaba 2ch. receiver and Etroniks Probe ESC. Along with battery and Ripmax Transmitter. I have nearly finished my Dolphin 16 and the Sea King will be the next project. I will add it to my Harbour but she may be in dry dock for a good time as i sort out the cosmetics. I've included the Dolphin in the photos. What a lucky boy! If anyone has photos or plans as to how she should look I would be grateful to see them.
