Sweet❤️❤️❤️Heart by Grandpa Lieutenant   Posted: 1 month ago
[Score: 8/10] 24"/1200g Sweet❤️❤️❤️Heart Capable of 12mph and a runtime of 30mins Single Propellor (2 Blade X Type) Geared to a Graupner (2 Blade X Type) Powered by NiMH (7.2v) Batteries - Comments: 18" of Ice covers the pond so much of the information requested must remain blank. The boat has only seen the bathtub ! No leaks. Stable and balanced. Paint is acrylic, clear-coated wood is mahogany. This is a Nor-Star Kingfisher kit with some alterations and added details. Looking forward to posting a video of the boat running on the lake in April after the ice leaves.

Smit Rotterdam 478 by sandkb Lieutenant   Posted: 1 month ago
I've been building this Billings kit for some years now. [laid the keel in 2007 !!] but I'm slowly getting there. I've just recently joined this Website so not sure if this is the correct place to post some pictures of this build plus a yacht and steam launch. I'll start here anyway and no doubt someone will advise me for future postings.

Kiel and shaft hole by manyboats Lieutenant   Posted: 2 months ago
Your post inspired me to build one. Have just cut out the frames for this one from the pdf files. Will make it as a simple RC craft for our club steering competitions. I've drawn up the rest of the plan in Illustrator using a capture from the plans on the page you mentioned. Will therefore be keeping an eye on your progress, so long as you keep posting.

i Phone App by Fireboat Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 3 months ago
There are plans to release an app update. Since iOS 10, Apple changed how they handle push notifications, so currently that feature is not working on Apple devices. Since the last version of the app they also released a new programming language, so the new app will be built in Swift and from current tests it looks to load pages faster. The app won't be ready for launch for (I suspect) another two months yet. Meanwhile, the existing app has seen a few improvements as part of the overhaul. Posting via the app is much more reliable now and you can also post more than 4 pictures like with the website. When the new app is launched I'll let everyone know. I hope, for most, it'll automatically push the update to peoples devices anyway. Thanks, Stephen

Radio kit & batteries by robbob Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 3 months ago
Hi Alan. Good advice as always from you my friend 👍 but I had already taken this into account with a 'note to self' in an earlier blog posting to avoid double powering the receiver. The second battery that you see in the picture is a 6v pack just for the lighting circuits, I will be charging this on a separate changeover charge/operate switch. The receiver power switch that I have already has this function built in. Rob.

Website upgrade coming soon! by Fireboat Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 3 months ago
Thought I'd give you all a teaser announcement 😊 The website is long overdue a heafty upgrade from its current format, including lots of behind the scenes updates to the server. I'd like to get this done over the Xmas hols, and so far things are progressing well but I'll hold out on a launch date as it's still an awful lot of work. In summary; - The whole website is moving to https and will use secure connections throughout, including the apps. So all traffic will be encrypted including usernames, passwords, stored cookies, everything. - No more flash plugins required. Flash is currently used in a couple of areas and will be replaced with HTML5 which is much cleaner, lightweight and in line with future standards. - Upload limits will be gone. You'll be able to upload as many files and photos as you like per post, along with this, a new media viewing interface has been crafted. I say media, as files are also acceptable everywhere, not just in the forum area. - Full Emoji support. Smileys will be replaced with emoji's, this is especially important for the mobile apps where smartphone entry typically can include emoji. - New posting interface across the website. Creating new posts will be cleaner and standardised across the website. - Profile pages will be updated, again, with a much cleaner design, focus on member rankings, recent posts and harbour boats. - Retina support, mainly for people viewing on macs, iphones, ipads - many graphics have been updated and will show in their full resolution glory. - Goodbye to the legacy server version. This isn't something anyone will notice, but to upgrade all the server code to more compatible modern standards is the majority of the upgrade work. Thanks to everyone for your continued support in keeping this website going! 👍 Stephen

Power supply (temporary) for the charger. by robbob Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 4 months ago
Hi Frank. Like you, I'm just getting back into it after long absence and I am having great fun and enjoying the build immensely 😁 Plenty more posting to come. Robbob

Power supply (temporary) for the charger. by ffkjr Apprentice   Posted: 4 months ago
Just wanted to thank you for posting all the valuable information on your build. I'm just getting back into the hobby after too many years away and appreciate the construction details that you include. It certainly appears that suppliers and craftsman in the UK are much more plentiful and involved in the hobby than I have found here in the US to date. I just started a Blue Jacket lobster boat to get my feet wet again but have my eye on a Speedline or Model Slipway Tamar Class Life Boat. Looking forward to more posts! Frank

Fibreglassing the hull side skins & transom. by robbob Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 4 months ago
Thanks all for your kind responses, it's a shame I can only post 4 pics at a time as I would like to show more detail. I'll try to keep it all interesting and if you think they are worthy please 'like' the postings. Robbob.

Fibreglassing the hull side skins & transom. by allenrod Sub-Lieutenant   Posted: 4 months ago
Hi Robbob, Don't worry about overdoing the postings, pictures and details, the more the merrier as far as I am concerned, I'm learning a lot from you for which I shall be eternally grateful, I recon most other followers of your posts will agree, keep it all coming and thanks

Fibreglassing the hull side skins & transom. by robbob Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 4 months ago
Hi allenrod, thanks for your encouraging comments, there's a lot more to come yet, I just hope I'm not overdoing the postings and boring everyone. 😯

Notification Updates by Tug_Hercules Seaman   Posted: 4 months ago
I used to get Notifications of Updates to this Site on a Weekly basis; for some reason in the last two weeks I get several Update Notices daily. I have checked the Notifications frequency in my Profile and nothing changed. Why is the Site sending out Update Notices for every posting? How do I revert back to Weekly Notice Updates? I enjoy Model Boats, however I get far toooooooooooo much e-Mail traffic . Any insights, are appreciated.
