Bismarck paint scheme (for Rookysailor ;-) by Rookysailor Lieutenant   Posted: 27 days ago
Greetings Doug, I have a phrase for you " In your book, 'problem is just a misspelling of challenge". The business of changing the keyboard is to tech for me. I mentioned Landsberg because you put A H wrote his book in Augsburg jail, easily mistaken. It has been some 10 years since was in Munich, had friends there, and used to visit 5 or 6 times a year, but sadly all passed away now, they were either navy or army friends, so were getting on in years when I first met them, but some great stories were told, one friend from the Tirpitz, one from the channel dash (schnellboot) one obersturtmbahnführer, in Lah. they were sailors/soldiers nothing more.....😤 cheers Peter

Newbie radio control question by RNinMunich Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 29 days ago
Hi teejay, which Schnellboot are you building? The S-100? They were generally known in England as E-Boats. I have the Revell 1/72 kit, vid on this link shows what some guys can do with it! 😎

HMS HOOD by Trumpeter by RNinMunich Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 1 month ago
Hi Peter, The Bissy was only in the Baltic for running up and training. In Unternehmung Rheinübung, foray into the Atlantic and the Battle in the Iceland Straight (sorry Denmark Straight), she would have had the normal light grey plus possibly camo colours, here, yer pays yer money and ya takes yer choice! 'As built' she would have been all DKM Hellgrau / Silbergrau (Light / Silver grey) #50 (that's the Lifecolor #UA 601) on the slipway. All the docus, vids and photos I have found don't seem to show any significant camo paint!? Only pic I ever found of Bizzy in camouflage paint is of the Graupner Premium model. Can't find any official record of it. There is some evidence of cammo paint on her sister ship Tirpitz, but it didn't help her, she spent most of her life bottled up in a Norwegian Fjord where she got flattened by Lancs! Cheers Doug 😎 Re Enamel: Maybe attached charts will help you find an acrylic equivalent😉 I will use the Lifecolor 601for mine. PS Bismarck had No later life!! One operation, one ship sunk (Hood 😭😭) and that was that! Can heartily recommend the old 1960 Kenneth More film 'Sink The Bismarck' 👍 Stirring stuff Old Chap, stiff upper lip stuff from the days when we still had a real Navy and hadn't swapped our overseas bases for 50 ancient rust bucket WWI destroyers🤔 By the by: during my 32 years working here (in Naval COMMS systems) I was frequently in the Blohm & Voss HQ in Hamburg, saw several superb yard models of their ships including Bismarck, and many photos, but never a one with camouflage. PPS: as far as i can establish the 'Baltic light grey' was only used on the top sides of smaller U-Boats operating in the relatively shallow Baltic waters. Maybe also a few small combatants such as Schnellboote, Minenjäger etc.

Schnellboat by Scratchbuilder Sub-Lieutenant   Posted: 12 months ago
[Score: 8/10] 39"/2300g Schnellboat Capable of 12mph and a runtime of 30mins Twin Propellors (3 Blade) Direct Drive to a MFA Torpedo 400 x 2 (3 Blade) Powered by NiCad (7.2v) Batteries Controlled Through Mtroniks Viper ESC - Comments: Hi. Not scratch built,and not quite finished yet but from the Italeri 1.35 Plastic kit.Sails really well, and has a good turning circle even using the three rudders provided with the kit.I have fitted all three shafts but only connected two at this time.Centre shaft is running free but I am able to connect a third motor if I wish. Customised to suit my likes and NOT exactly to real time paint scheme. Front and rear guns rotate on separate servo systems from a six channel Futaba system.Also has an engine noise generator coupled in with forward/reverse. Really nice addition to the fleet on the water. On a separate note the video clip is of a smoke generator just fitted to my Corvett and not connected to the Schnellboot.Just a tester.

Schnellboot & Fairmile D by reilly4 Commander   Posted: 1 year ago
Thank-you. We use car drive belts to assist with launch and retrieval of the boats. They are easy to carry about, maintain their shape in the water and don't slip from under the hulls. these belts are about 900mm long so you won't have to bend far when launching.

Schnellboot & Fairmile D by andyhynes Sub-Lieutenant   Posted: 1 year ago
Excellent boats. i have scratch built a vosper 510 1/24 scale known as the long boat. Im also building a 73" vosper 379 which has become a bit of a project? Its a bit big and i am not looking for trying to sail it in my local pond. last time i tried it i nearly chucked myself in the pond to the delight of some onlookers.

Schnellboot & Fairmile D by manyboats Lieutenant   Posted: 1 year ago
Thought it didn't look like UK, but more like Perth WA foreshore!

Schnellboot & Fairmile D by reilly4 Commander   Posted: 1 year ago
Thanks. The location is Albert Park lake in Melbourne, Australia. The Schnellboot now has a brushless motor, and my Fairmile D has 2 x Graupner 700 12v motors.

Schnellboot & Fairmile D by manyboats Lieutenant   Posted: 1 year ago
They go so nicely.... where is the location?

Schnellboot & Fairmile D by reilly4 Commander   Posted: 1 year ago
Both boats are 1/24 scale The E boat belongs to a good friend. It has just had a new camouflage pattern added. The Fairmile D is scratch-built, it took nearly 4 years to build, launched in 2011. The sound effects were added for fun. The location is Albert Park lake in Melbourne, Australia

S 7 schnellboot by blucher Petty Officer   Posted: 2 years ago
This particular version of Schnellboat is one I have been looking at for some time to build after I complete my current project of Smit Rotterdam. Being Scratch-built, I think you have done a particularly good job of it. Did you draw up the plans for this yourself or are they available on the internet for purchase. If I dont build this next it would be one I would like to build in the future.

Looks good for 'a toy'. Happy boating. 😊

ItalerI Schnellboot S-100 build by wolfpack Petty Officer   Posted: 3 years ago
I am brand new to this website and have just purchased the 1/35 ItalerI Schnellboot S-100. I would like to convert to radio control and welcome any advice on parts, suppliers and technique. I'm a decent modeler but this Is my first boat. Any help would be appreciated such as: where do I begin?

S 7 schnellboot by solekontrole Seaman   Posted: 3 years ago
scratchbuilt from ply and balsa wood powered by two Caldercraft 750 motors to 40mm props only took about three months to build as a winter project Its not perfect but was never meant to be more than a toy, 54 Inches long and gives a good response In speed and handling
