Revell 1/144 Fair Play Tug Boat by figtree7nts Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 11 months ago
Very nice model, I think I'm going to look for it and buy the kit myself!

Revell 1/144 Fair Play Tug Boat by saintsalvio Commander   Posted: 2 years ago
I love this Tug since I saw a you tube outbound Hamburg video so I checked a kit and finally realized it, If I had the skill I would have micromotorized it but I'm not capable of, sorry!

Build Update by Pav403 Commander   Posted: 2 years ago
Hello all, Ok, so getting closer to the Hull being finished, I've painted the Antifoul and Water line, I've gone for an Olive Green Antifoul, It mentioned this on the plans and found a Revell colour that suited. I've also sealed the Foredeck now, I was waiting to make sure the Gun Motor was working OK and that I had the base of the Gun Turret fitting correct. In the pictures you can see I've covered It In a fine filler, once sanded and painted (once at least) It will give me a smooth metallic look. I've also cut out the Anchor port holes, I pre drilled a 3mm hole and angled this up to come through the deck, I then enlarged this with a 6mm bit but did not go too deep Into the hull side as the plans only show small oval holes on the deck where the anchor chains run out of. They need a little work to round / smooth off and look right. I will hopefully get the Hull complete In the next week, work and Baby depending 😊 I'll upload pictures of the finished results. Good luck with your builds Dave

Orion build Instructions by jarvo Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 2 years ago
HI Vic As Revell and HegI are similar companies Its possible they are on hols. I had a similar problem with a foreign manufacturer and was amazed at there help, but It took sometime for them to reply. Have another try with Revell, also try there US website. More legal stuff over there so they might reply much faster???? worth a try. Good luck Mark

Orion build Instructions by HoweGY177 Lieutenant   Posted: 2 years ago
Thanks Mike for the Idea but I have tried but It Is, a) very slow as there are 6 pages and, b) the technical words that give the gist of the Instructions are not recognised. I,ve also tried Revell who are mentioned In the kit and seem to have printed the Instructions and HegI who make the kit but cannot get any joy. Vic

Orion build Instructions by HoweGY177 Lieutenant   Posted: 2 years ago
I am looking for the building Instructions for a HegI / Revell 'ORION' kit B-3503 In English. I have the Instructions but they are In German. The kit Is made by HegI but the Instructions only have the Revell name on them. I have tried 'Google' translation but over 6 pages long It will be very slow plus the technical words that give the essence to the build are not recognised. Can anyone help please?

Flower Class 1/48 by danielcolmar Chief Petty Officer   Posted: 2 years ago
The hull of the Flower Class presents the peculiarity of very visible joints of sheet steel. Revell represented well It on Its model In 1/72. I thought that In 1/48, he owed It's the same. Today, delicate work, to draw and to set up sheet steels. The first will be cardboard fine, the definitive In plate of polystirene (or polystirol) of 0.5mm and 0.3 mm Coming up nest

Revell HMSC SNOWBERRY by thomsd2 Apprentice   Posted: 3 years ago
Good looking ship. I'm about to start my Corvette & have a couple of questions for you. Did you use a 42mm diameter 3 blade prop? How long Is the drive shaft? How much ballast did you have to add? What type of battery did you use? Many thanks.

flowerdown corvette by vaderswar Sub-Lieutenant   Posted: 5 years ago
Got this one off ebay, had to use a little artistic licence with the paint scheme as club has several members with same scheme, so didnt want to look the same. The one thing I could not get over was how many parts were left over from the revell kit. Have a 380 motor In It with a msoniks 15 amp esc, could not get over how much ballast was needed to get her to sit In water true, but got there In the end. Now working on making homemade smoke generator to go In funnel, first tests great using nichrome wire and 6v battery, just have to make housing to go In funnel. Have tested parker black Ink mixed In smoker fluid and effect looks fantastic.
