Paper plans by ChrisF Chief Petty Officer   Posted: 9 days ago
I agree that folding drawings is not good (apart from for easy posting) but what annoys me is the way they are folded which can stretch and distort the paper. I've folded hundreds, well probably thousands, of building drawings in my lifetime and it's not difficult to do properly, like folding a map. Better when they are supplied as PDF's and you can get them printed yourself.

Thanks again for posting that ebay vendor. I needed two signal searchlights in that scale for my US Coast Guard 210' WMEC Cutter USCGC VIGOROUS (WMEC-627) model. Right on!

Solent Class Lifeboat "Douglas Currie" by Skydive130 Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 25 days ago
I quite agree Dave, the MFA 850 motors at 4/5ths chat push her along at a very pleasing and hopefully realistic speed. Ive enjoyed this build and had alot of pleasure posting myn progress, hopefully its been enjoyed by all and if its given anyone else some inspiration, even better. Please feel free to watch my Vosper RTTL build elsewhere! kind regards simon

Hi smiggy I have a couple of these motors and they are good and mine run off a 1.5v battery (max3v). Planetary gears but relatively quiet at low revs (volts). Mine came from and cost about £6 ea. Your link should be Well worth a look. The stepper motors I have are 10x14mm (including the shaft) and are direct drive. I will be posting a thread soon showing more details Nice scale model Dave

Hi Hmsnostalgia and welcome to the website. Glad you are enjoying my blog and thanks for your complementary remarks. What next?, well I'll be starting a new boat quite soon and posting a build blog once I have enough verbiage and pictures to post this space 😜. I may be going to the Warwickshire show next weekend, might see you there👍. Robbob.

Posting Photos - Discussion by Dave M Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 1 month ago
Hi Larry There is a section called Video Gallery where you can share videos you have posted to your You Tube free account. You can add text describing the video and giving details of the model and its running parameters. By using You Tube there is little impact on the website server and your video post appears almost instantly. If you need further help with You Tube please ask.

Can I post a short video

Re Boat Harbour entries by Fireboat Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 1 month ago
I'm inclined to agree with Dave. Whilst it can be made mandatory to have a photo, the website would only block the post at the final step (clicking Submit). I think it would be very frustrating having filled in everything else to be blocked from posting because of having no photo. There is also a problem on Android preventing people uploading pictures all together, it may explain why some people post without photos. I do plan to fix this, but I'm not the greatest Android developer. What is probably a very easy change to the code I haven't yet figured out. Essentially it's to do with having a webview and not a chromeview. Webview by default ignores upload buttons. If anyone understands what I'm talking about and has ideas to fix it, then do get in touch! Also worth noting, harbour posts can be edited later and photos added later. Stephen

Hi Dave M I love the Idea of posting a topic in the Forum! Maybe we can write the instructions. on how to upload and post pictures in the Harbour Entries even other areas of the Website. I look forward to reading such a topic. Ed

Posting Photos - Discussion by Dave M Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 1 month ago
Hi All We have a very large and active membership and as new members and the technology advances it is important we keep the site as up-to date as possible. One of the issues many seem to have is the ability to post photos on the site. To try and understand what these issues are it would help if members could share their experiences so we can better understand and perhaps guide them through the process. Please try and keep replies brief and to the point.

Re Boat Harbour entries by Dave M Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 1 month ago
Hi figrees7nts I do agree it would be really helpful if Harbour Posts did have a picture of the boat. It does show others what is possible and encourage them to post details of their model(s). We have many new members who use mobiles and Tablets and I do know Stephen intends to make the pic posting process possible but there are outside bodies involved in amending the code for all users so it can take time. Perhaps it would be more constructive if we were to help those who are posting without a pic or details to guide them through the process and perhaps identify any site issues that might need addressing. I am just as keen as you and Doug are to improve the site but sometimes the answer we seek needs a bit more research to understand the issues involved. I will start a new topic in the Forum specifically aimed at starting a discussion on issues members have in posting their pictures and see what is revealed.

Re Boat Harbour entries by Dave M Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 1 month ago
Hi Doug and figtree7nts The site is relatively rule free and whilst it is preferable if people post pics of their models it is not a requirement. Once you start introducing requirements you risk stopping people from posting. Plus not everyone may have a pic in electronic format. It is very helpful if details of the motor/prop/battery/ESC etc set up are given as this helps others decide what to use with their boat. The actual Boat Harbour section is a private area for members to post details of their models. I do not believe it is up to others to dictate what details they choose to share

Re Boat Harbour entries by figtree7nts Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 1 month ago
Hi Doug, Not sure why people are posting Harbour Entries without photos! Maybe they don't know any better! It should be a requirement to have a picture before you can post to Harbour Entries. I'm looking into having it as a requirement. must bring this up to the attention of Fireboat....
