Barnett Class Lifeboat Plans by Robby Chief Petty Officer   Posted: 13 days ago
Hi, I'm trying to get of some plans for a 52ft barnett class lifeboat to scratch build from. I have got some sections ones from the RNLI but they have closed their shop so I'm no longer able to get the other plans in order to build the hull (the one's that show the profile of the hull from the side). Any help would be appreciated. Robby

OSA 2 Scratch Build Missile Boat by clogboy Seaman   Posted: 14 days ago
Received the MB March edition in the mail yesterday. I was pleasantly surprised Dave Wooley decided to scratch build a Russian OSA 2 Missile Boat. I started a similar project late last year. Like Dave, I had no plans and only very few photos (only pictures from the static plastic Merit kit). My hull is a modified version of Glynn Guest's MTB (MB2009 edition). The hull is enlarged by 15% from the original plan, the additional front deck of the Vosper MTB is eliminated plus I modified the top half of the hull to obtain a more "v" shaped look. Model is all balsa and hull is cured with old panty hose and resin. First tests in pond were positive, aside from Antenna breaking off on maiden voyage. Superstructure need further work but might wait till I see Dave's ideas for further inspiration. I've got 2 other models in my dock yard so plenty on hands anyway. Cheers from Newcastle Australia. J.

Bertha by solo1274 Chief Petty Officer   Posted: 14 days ago
[Score: 8/10] 45"/2800g Bertha Capable of 2mph and a runtime of 60mins Powered by LiPoly (7.4v) 2Amp/h Batteries - Comments: Scratch built from Marine Modeller plans. One sail drum servo for the main and self tacking jib. A sail arm servo for the staysail and foresail. An extra servo to allow tension on the upper trisail. The bowsprit is an additional 10" on the overall length of the model. For RC sailing I have a 2.5kg detachable keel and rudder extesion ( shown in the photograph). All the deck winches are built from old clock parts. The lee boards are also functional and work in conjunction with the forward head sails and the sailarm servo. For transportation the top mast can be lowered and the bowsprit raised.
