Looking for an Aerokits Solent lifeboat by Skydive130 Lieutenant   Posted: 2 days ago
A part built Solent just sold on eBay for £100 buyer to collect. I’m building one at the moment from plans bought on eBay (I’ve a build thread going as we speak). If you have reasonable building skills that could be an option?

Looking for an Aerokits Solent lifeboat by Dave M Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 3 days ago
Hi smear Welcome to the site. You can find models on e-bay from time to time and there are also copies of the original plans plus templates for the formers to enable you to make from scratch. There was a recent article in one of the mags describing a restoration and I suspect it will have resulted in a high demand for the models so they may not be that easy to find. Hopefully you will find one soon. good hunting Dave

New plans by GrahamP74 Commander   Posted: 7 days ago
My Dad has given me these drawings from a local boat which he did some work in a few years back. He found them while clearing out his workshop! Could this be the next project? #Emily PIII

HMS Dreadnought (S101) by Airtrooper Seaman   Posted: 7 days ago
I also posted this at MBM was was also hoping people here might be able to help... I'm trying to find ANY plans (but especially lines and body plans) for the RN's first nuclear submarine, HMS Dreadnought (S101). The NMM charge a fortune IMO 😤 ,so not a viable option as I need to keep costs low. The Submarine Museum and the NMRN don't hold anything. 🤐 This has left me pretty much stuck! 😭 At this stage I'll be happy to find anything, even if it is lacking in detail! Perhaps someone out there can come to my aid please? For instance, does anyone know of any GA drawings published in books or magazines from any country around the globe? Many thanks in advance. Andy

rig & sails by Northumbrian Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 7 days ago
a few things have been mentioned about my build ie the rig is not as it should be the reason being i lost the index finger on my right hand so to be able to de rig it is easier to use bowsies with me it is a case of suck it & see I have decided to have the sails made by Mastman he does a lot of barge bits I have more or less copied the build from plans for the Celia Jane but me being me i tend to deviate to suit my needs I served my time in shipyards on both the Tyne & Wear i became a shipyard manager in Swan Hunters and the last three frigates built their were what we called as built we worked from schematics not drawings no two ships were the same 🤐

Robbe Smaragd by NPJ Commander   Posted: 9 days ago
I have a Robbe Smaragd Yacht. 1/10 scale. This is quite old now and could do with a ‘make over’. I would like to see some plans or instructions from the build before I start and would therefore be grateful if anyone with knowledge of this model or better still, copies of any paperwork that came with the kit contacted me. A few pics attached of this very ‘forgiving’ yacht............ All the best. NPJ

Propulsion Hegi Revell Fairplay V tug model by Radiosailor Sub-Lieutenant   Posted: 9 days ago
I just recieved a big package today containing the remains and the hull of this Fairplay V. The included paperwork included a A3 sized scan of the original plan. But this plan only shows partnumbers instead of measurements. Indicated on these original plans are a 60mm diameter propellor, and the Marx Monoperm Super Special (what a name!) with reduction 3:1 in it. A choice which seems undersized to me compared to the (same era & comparable size) Bugsier Tug from Graupner which has a Decaperm. For the moment I tend to go for this 12V low Rpm Xdrive 555. It has 25Nm of torque and doesn't need reduction. And combined to a Raboesch propshaft - which one can easily shorten - will help to get the driveline as far aft as possible in the boat, leaving more room for a bigger battery.(Or have the possibility to trim the boat with the battery and have the battery as deep as possible in the boat.) I'll check these mentioned forums too, thank you for the advise.

Sea Commander Ocean yacht by GARTH Commander   Posted: 11 days ago
Thanks to a fellow in Tasmania I got plans for sea commander no names please took a week for my print shop to make plans size 24''in length I wanted to build the model in a scale that is manageable & easy to transport to the pond . Used 1/4 inch ply for ribs & cut them on my Drumel saw that's about 30 years old , so old I can't find blades any more in Canada

M.V. TEAKWOOD by RHBaker Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 15 days ago
Thanks. Imagine Roker Park is close to F.C., but really have no idea. They are a great Club that sail in the Roker Park lake. Have been very helpful with advice and also supplying original plans for the SD 14 freighter, which would otherwise have been unobtainable.

T. I.D Tug by Dave M Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 16 days ago
I got mine with a hull from Martins Models at an E Port show some years ago. I believe Skelmersdale Models bought some of his hulls and plans so they may be able to help.

T. I.D Tug by georgeo5664 Lieutenant   Posted: 16 days ago
Any one got plans for a TID Tug or know where I could get a set 1/24 scale Thank you

3d printing by Dave M Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 16 days ago
Hi Selwyn Looking at the plans it may be possible to use PosteRazor available as a free download from many sources. Just Google and choose a source you trust to download. It is actually a poster printing program and prints on A4 sheets which can be joined together. I have used this in the past to enlarge line drawings to the required scale to produce the formers. Won't be 100% scale but may be sufficient for your purpose. A fellow club member made Pickle from a 2" square set of line drawings.
