Trent class lifeboat by Vickers1979 Lieutenant   Posted: 4 months ago
Hi all looking for a set of plans for the Trent. I’ve got hold of a Hull thinking it was the seven class only to found out it’s the Trent so the seven plan don’t really work on the hull. Regards lee.

Steam sound unit (variable speed) by Dave M Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 6 months ago
Hi Doug and Eric If you want synchronized sound they will be synthesised. I bought an original Action sound unit for my Trent lifeboat as the sound was sampled on the Whitby Lifeboat which is the model I built. The sampled sounds are all available on a disk and you can easily reprogram to any sound you require. The latest offering can reproduce two motors which is good for twin props where the engines are often changing direction when manouvering. You do need a large solidly mounted speaker to deliver the deep engine notes. My Noisy thing works with any rx and both brushed and brushless ESCs. I suspect that they are designed to link into the Action ESCs which may explain the situation. We did have a discussion re the Action twin ESC some time ago and I did note that the two positive and negative connections had to be wired correctly or risk damaging the output stage. Whatever you choose the sound will greatly enhance the models prescence.

Been on hold for awhile while working on Al Khubar. Time to finish it you may have seen it at Haydock (OWLS). Running gear and electrics all working and has been sailed no leaks, Deck railings and all the white metal bits need doing along with a coat of paint to the deck. Superstructure and Fly Bridge need fittings and painting. Lots to keep me going for a while. More to come as I progress.

Working radar by Dave M Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 12 months ago
Hi Julian My 1:32 Trent lifeboat has a similar radar housing to your model. I made my radar casing around a very small servo with the feedback removed plus the the internal pins to allow for continuous rotation. You can remove the bottom part of the servo casing to make it even smaller. Mine sticks thro the top of the radar case and I plug the radar scanner onto the serrated drive. It worked fine but I subsequently removed the electrics and drive the motor via a voltage reducer ( I make my own based on a 317 chip) but they are cheap to buy. The real problem is the noise of the cheap gearing in the minature servos. OK on the water but very noisy if you are exhibiting inside. See pics Dave

Working radar by Dave M Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 12 months ago
Hi Julian As Doug has already commented this is a very small coreless geared motor that reduces the revs down to slow speeds. They are incredibly small powerful and quiet. I have a stripped down minature servo in my Trent lifeboat which gives the required speed but it is exceptionally noisy, especially when used in a display environment. This motor is the best I have found on the market and is certainly suitable for your purpose. I do hope you manage to find the solution for your radar and that you share how on the forum. Cheers Dave

Hello, Firstly is the lifeboat kit still for sale? If so, does it come with instructions as well as plans for each stage of the build? Finally, my budget would be around the £475 mark, would this be considered as a reasonable offer, obviously if not I fully understand. Thank you.
