Don't know anything about them but I love the lines of the model. Is it scratch built or did it come as as a kit?

Rasta Craft - Jamaican Pleasure Boat by Krampus Commander   Posted: 2 months ago
1 JUL 17 - Using a borrowed Lisa M yacht hull made by German manufacturer Krick and the cockpit of a scratch built I made earlier (now defunct), I'm now working on this new vessel. For no logic reason, I decided to use Jamaican Rasta culture for inspirational purposes. Just something different for may flotilla. Water tested with a 30A Mtroniks "Tio" controller, a 500-series motor, a 10.8 NIHM battery and a 40mm propeller. A winning combination for this boat. I added spray rails and just painted the hull in yellow

Mini-12 by Dave M Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 2 months ago
Nice setting. I see you use pond yacht type hulls. We have to in the summer due to floating weed in our lake. Is this a kit or scratch built? Certainly looks fun and I see you are training the mate for his masters ticket!

Is this scratch built or are plans available?

Statia Relaint by chugalone100 Sub-Lieutenant   Posted: 2 months ago
First and foremost I would like to thank everyone that answered my question about fiberglassing. Your help guided me through the process and I believe that it came out very good, but still needs more work to smooth out the resin and of course I will post more progress pictures later on. The name of the tug is “STATIA RELAINT”. This is one of a fleet of four vessels built by Samakona Yards in Spain. I chose this one because of the stealth lines that has throughout the structure or just because I love how it looks. I am an artist (painter), and we fall in love with colors and shapes, so maybe thats another reason why Im building this particular one. I was lucky to find the plans and enlarge them to 33” approximately 1/32 scale. This will be my FIRST scratch built even dough I have built others from kits, but never like the experts I see in this forum. I will be open for questions, suggestions and criticism. Thank You Julian From Sunny Miami. 😎

JOLIE BRISE gaff-rigged cutter by Dom of Essential RC Lieutenant   Posted: 2 months ago
This fantastic model was scratch built by John of the Solent Radio Controlled Model Boat Club. Here it is seen sailing in light winds on Setley Pond in the New Forest, UK. She took about a year to construct and is now into the third year of sailing. The boat is based on the period 1929/34 when "Bobby" Somerset owned her, he won the Fastnet race twice and finished second once, infact she is the only boat to win the Fastnet three times. She is based on the river Hamble and is owned by Dauntseys school in Wiltshire and is regularly raced by the pupils there. The model is approximately 1:15 scale. In 2013 the full size Jolie Brise celebrated the centenary anniversary of her construction by the Paumelle yard in Le Havre in 1913. The world famous, gaff-rigged pilot cutter was the last boat to carry the royal mail under sail and has won the Fastnet Race three times, including the inaugural race in 1925. In 2015 and 2016 she was the overall winner of the Tall Ships Races. Jolie Brise is owned, maintained and sailed by the pupils of Dauntsey's School. For more information about Jolie Brise go to, www.joliebrise.com (apologies...just seen this vid was already posted by Dave M😁)

Shelduck by muddy Captain   Posted: 2 months ago
This Motor/Sailor was started in 2014 after a pal went on holiday to the New Forest, and arrived on the day when the Setley Pond MBC were there.. He Photographed two of these models, and when they were viewed, I was hooked. Plans and a CD were organised from the club/members, What a great set of Guys at Setley Pond Club. Scratch build was the order of the day . She was built with whatever materials i had here, mainly 5mm ply and Obechie strip, 3mm x 5mm.. The keel is laminated , three pices of 5mm and the bulkheads are 5mm. Some bulkheads had patterns made but most was traced then pin pricked onto the ply. A lot of dry fit's took place before the bulkheads were hollowed out , egg-box fashion framing was fitted to the top of the frames again in 5mm ply with some strip Obechie 10mm x 20mm forming the hatch openings. The prop shaft was slotted and built in as the keel was laminated. Regards Muddy....

How many is to Many by Hugh Sub-Lieutenant   Posted: 2 months ago
I have two working,one almost there and another scratch built coming up, plus 5 static models. We are strange folk, but must have something in common to be building and sailing them.

Bismark by hatchette by Peter47 Commander   Posted: 3 months ago
My brother was given a partial built one a while back believe they are 1/200th -192nd, so around 45" to 48" long, one small warning make sure you seal the portholes, before sailing, he was merrily sailing his, when it dawned on him he had not, brought it gently in and luckily it had very little h2o in it. I was peeved as I had just lost my scratch built version, the previous year before, it had rotted away in my leaky shed and would not have minded it myself :-)

How do I resolve my varnish problem? by John Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 3 months ago
I have spoken to the person who built the boat. It is based on a Vintage model boat company design. It was scratch built and is made of strips of mahogany as I originally suspected. Having looked at the Vintage model company site it most resembles a sea hornet, however another kit may have been available at the time it was made. The strips of Mahogany were the builder making use of the materials they had to hand at the time, hence the vertical strips! The interior is covered in fine fibreglass mesh and 3 thin coats of fibreglass resin. Work on the restoration continues!

Arran Glasgow. by Scratchbuilder Chief Petty Officer   Posted: 3 months ago
Hello. I am trying to establish as much information as possible on the boat as show in the attached pictures. This model was found in the boot of a car some 40 years ago by a friend of mine when he bought the car.It has lain in his shed from that day to this. It clearly is Scratch built and has a Basset-Lowke motor.(which works very well after all that time lying idle) It is plank on frame construction. I have found limited information on line on her but am wondering if anyone has a wealth of knowledge on either the model or its real life version.The last picture shows a hulk of what I think is the same ship. Regards Bill.
