Glue Applicator by RNinMunich Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 3 months ago
Same principle as Revell Contacta Professional, which you can also refill, and it has a longer needle. Devil to clean out if it bungs up 😡 Cheers 😎

How do I resolve my varnish problem? by RNinMunich Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 3 months ago
Your choice, but if the wood is still good would be a shame to hide it 🤔 I agree though varnishing is more work, applying and maintaining. For the deck of my Sea Scout I bought what is termed 'Yacht Varnish'! But I'm sure martin can be more specific. Not a great problem on my grey funnel fleet, except some of the larger ones like Graf Spee and Belfast. I prpose to simply seal them with the silk matt clear varnish from Revell. (Sorry but I live in Germany!) Oh great 'Sultans of Swing' on the radio 😊 Hard luck neighbours 😉

Rare Comet model "Sloop Gypsy" by RNinMunich Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 4 months ago
There are many mini, micro or pico motors and ECSs, also receivers on the market these days. I've recently got into 'Plastic Magic' and am fitting out the Revell Harbour Tug kit, hull length 23cm (9 inches !!) with RC. And I'm not the first to do that with this kit. For instance look at Nothing is Impossible! (I drive a Toyota!!!!!!!!!!!) PS I didn't mean you weren't skilled enough! That was based on my own experience with a yacht hired for the day on Elba many years ago - No Wind - No Move🤔 And then an aux. motor with a leaky cooling water hose 😲

Revell 1/144 Fair Play Tug Boat by figtree7nts Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 1 year 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

More legal stuff over there so they might reply much faster???? worth a try. Good luck Mark
