Solent Class Lifeboat "Douglas Currie" by Dave M Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 2 days ago
Very realistic and nicely sailed model. The Solent Class were not fast afloat boats and had a max speed of about 9 knots so its nice to see a scale model sailing at a realistic speed. Well done and thanks for sharing the build and final on the water video

1:16 scale figures for a model trawler ? by RNinMunich Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 6 days ago
Looking for crew for your Tiger were you?? 😉 BTW: if you're going to put a sound module in the Tiger tank and want genuine sound bites: start up, (running with squeaking tracks), and stop, idle, shut down, gun fire, heavy machine gun fire: I have a whole directory of such sounds in wav or mp3 format. Can send if you want. Cheers Doug 😎

rotating radars off mast by Dave M Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 7 days ago
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 http://www.gizmoszone.com/shopping/agora.cgi and cost about £6 ea. Your link should be https://www.precisionmicrodrives.com/gearmotors. 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

USCGC VIGOROUS (WMEC-627) by circle43nautical Sub-Lieutenant   Posted: 7 days ago
[Score: 8/10] 52"/4600g USCGC VIGOROUS (WMEC-627) Capable of 10mph and a runtime of 60mins Twin Propellors (7 Blade 50mm) Direct Drive to a 775 JOHNSON-TYPE 6-12V (7 Blade) Powered by NiMH (8.4v) 3Amp/h Batteries Controlled Through DIMART FAN-COOLED 320A (20Amps) ESC - Comments: ON THE WAYS: 1:48 COAST GUARD MODELS (CHICAGOLAND) 52" F/G HULL. SCALE REPLICA OF USCGC VIGOROUS (WMEC-627), ONE OF THREE CUTTERS I SAILED ABOARD WHILE PROUDLY SERVING IN THE GLORIOUS 1980'S. THE BUILDER OF THESE HULLS DOES JUST ABOUT EVERY USCG CRAFT, WWII TO PRESENT. UNFORTUNATELY, DUE TO HEALTH REASONS, HE IS ABOUT TO RETIRE AND RELINQUISH THE FORMS. HIS WEBSITE IS COASTGUARD MODELS.COM IF ANYONE IS INTERESTED. I PLAN TO ORDER A USCG BAY CLASS ICEBREAKING TUG THIS WEEK, BEFORE IT'S OBSOLETE. THAT WOULD ALSO COMPLETE MY USCG FLEET THAT IS RELATIVE TO MY SERVICE. THERE ARE NO SUPERSTRUCTURE ASSEMBIES AVAILABLE FOR THE WMEC, HENCE A SCRATCH BUILD FROM THE MAIN DECK IS IN MY NAUTICAL FUTURE. LUCKILY, GEORGE BIEDA @ WINDJAMMERARTS.COM PUT TOGETHER A LARGE SHEET OF 1:48 DRAWINGS FOR THE CONSTRUCTION. MY PHOTOGRAPHIC MEMORY IS PRETTY GOOD, BUT EVERY LIL BIT HELPS, I RECKON. THERE IS, HOWEVER A S/S & CABIN ASSLY FOR THE BAY CLASS, AT A COST, OF COURSE. PARATUS GERERE!

1:16 scale figures for a model trawler ? by marky Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 7 days ago
i mentioned this method before on another site and was shot down about copyright ,anyway method is if you have a figure take it to a copy shop where it can be scanned and then 3D print at the scale required the other way is to get cheap toy soldiers as in toy story cut them into bits mix and match limbs scan the hybrids and print at the required scale .the asda up in my neck of the woods has a scanner that you stand in and get a model of yourself printed no copyright issues all the crewv could be clones of the scanned person

1:16 scale figures for a model trawler ? by bilzin Chief Petty Officer   Posted: 7 days ago
Looked just about everywhere so far and the only ones in that scale are a tad "pantomimish" (won't mention any manufacturers) I had the crew for my USCG lifeboat made by Realmodelpilots.com but they are a bit pricey although the detail is magnificent Any suggestions would be gratefully received Bill

NAXOS - Fishing Boat by Zdenek Chief Petty Officer   Posted: 16 days ago
The plan is from the era of "Czechoslovakia" and the design was inspired by an Italian fishing boat "Susanna". It is not a true-scale modell. Try to look there: http://www.rcrevue.cz/objednejte-si/planky-modelar&page=60&p... It is in the Czech language but there are pictures of the plans ... In my opinion, the build would not be much simpler than Artur but there is one advantage: All parts are on plan, they are numbered and you can identify them on the general arrangement. Good luck!

HMS Illustrious by Gdaynorm Commander   Posted: 17 days ago
[Score: 5/10] 48" HMS Illustrious - Comments: Waterline model to scale 1/192. Model is really a hybrid of the ship during her commissioned lifetime (1939 - 1956). She served mainly in Mediterranean and Far East. Seriously damaged on several occasions, resulting in numerous modifications, which is why I had so many problems settling on a model true to any one date.

Oh man, I tried to lay a hand on one of these for the longest time. Lovely boats. Would you mind if I post these pics on my Facebook group page (South Bavaria Scale Model Boats)?

Superstructure finished! by Dave M Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 25 days ago
I attached the plastic tube that came with the original kit with long brass nails. You need to just fit them so that you dont squash the tube. I painted the tube with a darkish red Humbrol before fitting. The fore and aft bits are the bulwarks and there is also a small rail running along the edges of the deck, but set in slightly. On the real boat they carried the stanchion bearers and acted as a foot stop. They also need to have washports to allow deck water to run off. I've attached a few pics of my Solent FYI. I agree it was not a scale model but at the time we used IC engines that required easy and large access and this was one of the more realistic models available. Many like yourself have added lots of detail and the finished result will look the part and will be a credit to you. Looking forward to seeing the finished Oxford Blue hull.

Klondike by RNinMunich Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 25 days ago
Brilliant 👍 Love the detailing, and on such a mammoth scale as well! Popsicle sticks! You must have made a lot of children very happy👍😉 I've heard of others getting all family and friends to 'collect' coffee stirring sticks ... Next model with zig million matchsticks perhaps ? 😉 Shame we will never see her under way but a superb memorial to her and her crews. Cheers Doug 😎

Klondike by Trillium Commander   Posted: 25 days ago
Great work. A superb example of how a scale model gives viewers a 3D view of something that exists now only in 2D images.
