Controls problem by malcolmstroud Petty Officer   Posted: 1 month ago
I went along to Bury Metro Marine Modelling Society and got some good advice from a chap called Peter (may not be the same one...) Thank you. The upshot is I'll be swapping the dodgy App-driven Tx/Rx for a proper one. And why did I buy an unbuilt trawler model? Well the 2ch radio control will come in handy as a test setup anyway!

It's a sad day!. by merchant67 Seaman   Posted: 2 months ago
I remember going to a model boat club meet in Crosby Liverpool back in the early 60's ( cannot remember the name of the lake though) There were plenty of IC models plus one guy who had a steam powered trawler and he was busy stoking the thing with pine chips to get steam up. As I remember a beautiful boat. Maybe the way forward is steam????

Any clues? by aanside Sub-Lieutenant   Posted: 3 months ago
"This is certainly NOThe the model of a Thames or Coastal barge hull" I had come to that conclusion. Researching typical twin masted vessels with that sort of beam (thereby ruling out most schooners) it could be a Brixham Trawler or some kind of ketch. One suggestion was a Moray Firth Scaffie but I need to go to one of the local museums to see if there is a model or a drawing. Interesting clue - the rudder post is carried above the deck. I guess half the fun is trying to see what I can make of it and then get it on the water.

Emily P III by GrahamP74 Admiral   Posted: 5 months ago
This is another scratch build fishing boat. The hull is a models by design Cygnus GM33. 16th scale. This one will be a pure trawler. I am going for an aft wheelhouse this time! The prop shaft and rudder have been purchased but all other running gear will be shared with Emily P III.

Model of a traditional fishing boat in The Ivy cafe on Weymouth Harbour.

Excelsior by SelwynWilliams Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 6 months ago
I was going to do a day sail on her in Weymouth Bay but came down with a bug before I could. Quite reasonable terms too. Crew were very friendly. Not sure if they were in Weymouth for part of the Dunkirk film filmed in Weymouth Harbour, we had three such old trawlers and drifters anchored in the centre of the harbour. Great sight.

Excelsior by Gascoigne Captain   Posted: 6 months ago
Here is the last of the Lowestoft sailing trawlers. Model built using working drawings kindly supplied by the Sailing Trust. Model about 12 years old. I got a little carried away on detail! As expected she sails and handles well as all the old work sailors do. Drop keel and rudder extension added when sailing. I was intrigued to discover that the deck winch was steam powered,no doubt to help with taking in the trawl net.

Excelsior by Gascoigne Captain   Posted: 6 months ago
[Score: 8/10] 34" Excelsior - Comments: Scratch built model of the last surviving Lowestoft sailing trawler which is managed by a sailing trust. And a much loved vessel. Model sails well with drop keel and rudder extension. 12 years old. Working drawings kindly supplied by the Trust.

Sarah Anne Trawler by bilzin Commander   Posted: 7 months ago
This as described in the photo gallery and was a house clearance find. (and is the Sarah Jane NOT Anne) 30" in length and 9.5" beam. and will require some finishing work to be carried out (slight) Motor and rudder servo installed, but my latest build means that it needs a good home now. as I'm thinning out my fleet at long last. If anyone's interested they can contact me either on here or on 007958 263772 (evenings)

Fish boxes by GrahamP74 Admiral   Posted: 8 months ago
Made a stack of boxes and some that I will add some fish too also! Julie Jean is a trawler that my Dad fitted out and put the engines in and fellow modelmaker Ballast will note the nod given to his own model of DH142.

1:16 scale figures for a model trawler ? by RNinMunich Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 8 months ago
Looking for crew for your Tiger were you?? 😉 BTW: if you're going to put a sound module in the Tiger tank and want genuine sound bites: start up, (running with squeaking tracks), and stop, idle, shut down, gun fire, heavy machine gun fire: I have a whole directory of such sounds in wav or mp3 format. Can send if you want. Cheers Doug 😎

WW2 tank crew tend to be 1/16 or 120mm scale👍 Cheers Wayne
