Precedent Fairey Huntsman by bthart Apprentice   Posted: 3 days ago
I have for sale an unfinished Fairey Huntsman 31, I started it approx 9 months ago as a project with my grandson but his attention has now turned to model railways, subsequently I have now lost interest in completing and sailing it, the boat is approx 90% complete and comes with new RC equipment battery motor etc, I am looking for £250 just to recoup the costs and to put to his new model railway. I live inStoke-on-Trent if anybody would like to have a look,

Trent deck colour by Flack Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 7 months ago
Thanks once again for the information. I have found that the "sprinkling sand" method of recreating the non slip surface can be a little hit and miss unless you take exceptional care to get the covering uniform. Instead I have used a can of textured spray paint available from Halfords and then overpainted it with my chosen colour. Regards Shaun

Trent deck colour by Manofkent Petty Officer   Posted: 7 months ago
Something else you may want to consider.. I sprinkle a small amount of fine bird cage sand onto the deck whilst applying the first coat of grey. it gives a pretty good imitation of the non slip surface on the real lifeboats

Thanks for that - I had heard the Rover Tempest Grey was close but found it to be very dark. I shall look for the Humbrol grey Cheers

having built a Trent and now onto a Tamar, the nearest colour I have found to the current RNLI livery is Humbrol 165 Medium Sea Grey.

Spektrum, new, useless... by pmdevlin Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 8 months ago
IFound out today via bmfa that horizon hobbies who looked after spectrum warranties and repairs are back in uk with darbrorc who are just outside stoke on Trent. Maybe they can get the tx tested and fixed? Several years ago I had a couple of frysky tx and they needed to be set up on a pc don’t know if this is still the case?

Trent deck colour by Flack Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 8 months ago
I have no doubt this question has been asked in the past but I can't seem to find the answer despite trawling through lots of posts. I am looking to identify the deck colour for a Trent Lifeboat. I would prefer an "off the shelf" solution such as car paints rather than have to get a version "mixed" Cheers Shaun

Speedline Lifeboat crew by rolfman2000 Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 8 months ago
I'm sorry to say. But this is what I hear about Speed line time and time again. Someone will pop up and say about one of the main guys being ill. But this has been the "excuse" for well over 12 months. I also know of peple being kicked off forums for saying this as well 🤔 but the truth is the truth. I have some 1/16th(I think) lifeboat crew, which you can have if you are interested. I got them with a 1/12th Trent I bought, but they are nowhere near the right scale. Best of luck getting a response from Speedline. Chueers, Dave😊

Trent class lifeboat by Vickers1979 Lieutenant   Posted: 1 year 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: 1 year 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.
