Emoticons, Keyboards & accented letters by onetenor Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 15 days ago
Yep we did Doug This Circumflex is all I can find ^ and no dead keys.Yes I can type a word then ask for it's translation but I speak French and some Italian,Spanish and German so don't need to for the most part. It might work if I type in the word minus accents and see if it corrects itself but I doubt it Yes those accents would be useful. Changing languages is a faff and by the time I get it on I've lost the posting.Hardly worth the hassle. Hrrmph!😭 Never mind Eh! as Bootsie used to say.👍

LED Tug Mast Navigation Lights by figtree7nts Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 21 days ago
Evening Pete, Are you going to document what you do? By posting picture and a thread? Ed

LED Tug Mast Navigation Lights by pittsfieldpete Lieutenant   Posted: 22 days ago
Hello, Figtree7nts: What about “happy”? You wrote “we're all one big family”. Over here we’d usually say “we're all one big, happy family”. Are we not happy? Would anyone not grin from ear to ear when they see their boat on the water for the first time? Wouldn’t any of us be over the moon when our new boat kit arrives? If this or any other hobby doesn’t make us happy then why do it at all? The above is all in good fun but far off topic. Over to you, Doug: For my project can I use the spreadsheets & drawing you’ve already sent or do you plan on posting revised versions based on your operating observations & adjustments? I’m going make a PDF of this entire post eventually so I’ll have a good reference to use as my project progresses. There a many very useful tips & parts sources throughout as well. BTW have seen the scale boats made by Aquacraft? They’ve got four very nice boats (actually three boats & one ship) that are large, very well detailed & realistic. There’s a tug, a fire/rescue boat, a trawler & a fantastic 1/72 scale US Navy Fletcher-class destroyer that could easily be used as a movie prop. It’s over 5 feet long & priced at about $700 US. My wife said if I spend that much on a boat she’d better be able to ride in it or she’ll leave. I’ll really miss the old girl.🤪Here’s a link to Aquacraft’s page for the model. There’s a nice photo gallery as well as a video: I have my eye on the Bristol Trawler. I’ve always like trawlers & the Bristol is a beauty. It comes with a full range of LED navigation lights (including mast lights). There’s no working horn but that’s about the only thing lacking. This reminds of a joke: Why do cows have bells?🐮Because their horns don’t work! Thanks, Pete.

That's what I was afraid of 🤔 I'd have done the same 😉😁 BTW: I think Pete's 'nodded off' while posting!?

Robbe Smaragd by RNinMunich Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 30 days ago
Hi East, Welcome aboard 👍 How about posting your Smaragd (= Emerald BTW) in your Harbour? Sure folks would like to see some pics of your pride and joy 😉 Cheers, Doug 😎

The other lot... by kmbcsecretary Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 1 month ago
I've had a look on mayhem Martin and the reply button is definitely there on the postings. But if I remember correctly I think they placed more restrictions on new members Ron

Forum Topic Search? by pittsfieldpete Lieutenant   Posted: 2 months ago
Hello, everyone: If this is something that’s so obvious that I could trip over it please be kind & don’t roll your eyes so far up into their sockets that they get stuck. OK? Anyway, is there a way to search in the forum? If I could search & potentially find something I’m interested in I’d be able to avoid posting questions that have already been answered. Please let me know. Thanks, Pete

New activity by kmbcsecretary Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 3 months ago
I agree with you there Martin I asked this a while ago as like you say it does get confusing and on the larger threads it can take a while to find the new postings. I know they are building the new site now and hopefully this may be a new option that is included in the new setup Ron

S 100 Schnellboot RC build by BW3 Petty Officer   Posted: 3 months ago
I am doing a lot of reading of posts online many back when this kit was new to the market.... as to my motor choice I winged it as I am not sure of what the motor sizes list here (300,500... etc etc) but did read a rule of thumb in that props should be equal to or better yet less than the diameter of said motor , so with brut strength and ignorance I have 3 Hobbyking ST3007, 1100KV that and a goal of keeping it light , thou I think I have read that 3.3 kg was ideal for scale ?....Again a 90/90 build , having lost all feelings in both hands from spinal stenosis I must accept what I can do now to what I once did or able to do with just a little more effort... Thank You All for your posts and help , and posting of videos online they bring me great pleasure and enjoyment ....Thank You

Thought I should post proof of been a model boat builder after posting up photo's of the real thing. Scratch built running twin Irvins 61's with an engine sync system, 7 year build time as a house restoration got in the way! Chris
