A return to the hobby! by Ianh Chief Petty Officer   Posted: 18 days ago
Guys The Jig is finished for Sea Queen, I have designed it in such a way that the 46" RAF Crash Tender that I have as kit from VMAW will use the same jig.. Will be fitting to MFA 850's on this as the original had two props. Built one of these many years ago fitted with a Taplin Twin sold it when I moved to South Africa.Not allowed to run IC Boats at the 2 clubs I belong to My wife must never know how much my hobby costs

A return to the hobby! by Ianh Chief Petty Officer   Posted: 21 days ago
Best thing I ever did was deal with SLEC as an aeromodeller. I have a fuselage building Jig that I am using to build a new Sea Queen. The idea is to ensure no twist on a 46" hull. Just making the blocks to allow for the Skeg will post pictures soon😊😊

Sea Queen - strakes by Westquay Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 2 months ago
Yep, all v hulls need spray rails and it makes your power requirements less for any case. Properly done it looks good,too. With the Sea Queen being a bit on the lardarse side it helps even more to get her "on the step" Martin

Sea Queen - strakes by AndyG009 Lieutenant   Posted: 2 months ago
Building a Sea Queen, what are peoples feelings about fitting spray rails ? I feel it needs them, but where ? This was ment to be about Spray Rails not Strakes (must be getting old........)

Longer run time by randhbarker Sub-Lieutenant   Posted: 2 months ago
I am using 1 12v lead acid battery in my sea queen with a brushless motor. It’s only giving me about 15 minutes on the water. The boat will get up and go for a few minutes but after that I can have the throttle wide open but the speed has gone. Can I link more than 1 battery together to give me a greater voltage which I believe a brushless motor can cope with. If so which batteries should I use and should I wire in series or parallel? I await your thoughts Thanks

Found her! Now BRP Ivatan of the Philippine Navy. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/HMAS_Brunei_(L_127) So your model must be about 3feet. Nice👍 Next a 1/48 RC Tank ??? Doug 😎

Hi Doug I have posted some photos on the photo sight of some of my boats which includes the Sea Queen. Sid

Hi Model boat enthusiasts, This is a photo of almost completed 2 model boats I have almost completed. The Sea Queen 50 years old find. It was found in an attic in a kit. The kit was in a very poor state and most of the timberwork had to be glued back together or remade. I had no plans for it and had to source a copy from the Model Boat website. It is a very nice model. The pilot boat was scratch built and sails very nicely. I have been building boats for about 30years and have built over 25 boats, scratch built all of them. I have included photos of some of my boats.

Glad to help Sid, 'no problems'! Some pics of your build would be nice, how about a Blog ? 😉 Cheers, Doug 😎

Sea Queen by sidley70 Sub-Lieutenant   Posted: 3 months ago
Hi Doug I will follow this up. I had to make the cleats , a little unorthodox but they look ok. Many Thanks Sid👍

Sea Queen by RNinMunich Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 3 months ago
Hi Sid, for my Sea Scout I used fittings from Krick here in Germany. Several from the 'Riva' series; e.g. jam cleats and tank filler caps you can see in the photos. http://www.krickshop.de/Products/Accessories/Accessories-for... http://www.krickshop.de/Products.htm?shop=krick_e&SessionId=... From the same source I also got some pear drop shaped red & green running lights, a white mast lamp, ship's wheel. Still to be fitted. Other possibilities are, The Model Dockyard http://www.model-dockyard.com/acatalog/Ship_Fittings.html or Cornwall Model Boats. https://www.cornwallmodelboats.co.uk/acatalog/ship_fittings.... Cheers, Doug 😎 PS the fittings I'm using are nicely chrome plated on brass😊
