Schnellboat by Scratchbuilder Chief Petty Officer   Posted: 5 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.

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.

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.

Thought it didn't look like UK, but more like Perth WA foreshore!

Schnellboot & Fairmile D by reilly4 Sub-Lieutenant   Posted: 8 months 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: 9 months ago
They go so nicely.... where is the location?

Schnellboot & Fairmile D by reilly4 Sub-Lieutenant   Posted: 9 months 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

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: 2 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: 2 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

Schnellboot s100 by Spitfire99 Lieutenant   Posted: 3 years ago
This was the 1-35 scale plastic model kit and converted to RC 3 props 2 working port and the starboard the centre Is non running. Due to weight I used a 11.7 lipoly battery so It's fast but the running time Is only about 20 30 mins It won best In show In the navy boat section at our club due to the detail and the figures so can't be bad
