1960 Keil Kraft catalogue. by robbob Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 5 months ago
While doing a bit of research on model boat fittings I came across this Keil Kraft catalogue on the RClibrary website. It makes for very interesting reading and has a foreword by Eddie Keil and an article by the legendary Vic Smeed. There's lot's more great vintage magazines on the site too 😁 EDIT. Check this one out as well: It has a boatbuilding article by L J Rowell Robbob.

Working out scale by cormorant Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 8 months ago
I am completing a Pilot boat which has been built from plans by Vic Smeed. The plans indicate scale as 3/4 inch - 1ft The boat is 34 and a half inches long. As I am a mathematical no hoper, can anyone help with the scale e.g. 1/25th Thank you. Steve

Motor Mounts by cormorant Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 8 months ago
My latest project is the completion of 'Pilot II', built from plans by Vic Smeed. (Not sure of the vintage but the plans cost five shillings). (Picture 1) If I mount the motors using conventional u/v couplings I cannot secure them without making holes in the hull. (Picture 2) The only remedy I can see is to extend the coupling, therefore giving me enough gap between the hull and the mounts to secure them without damaging the hull. This would mean extending the couplings by approx 37mm (Pic 3). I am unable to use what appear to be the already built mounts as I cannot get the motors to that angle. I have never extended motor mounts so any advice would be welcome. Steve

Scudder by boaty Commander   Posted: 1 year ago
😀 😊 Really great to see an airscrew driven boat especially one designed by Vic Smeed. Last one I had was a scratch built free running one powered by a Cox Babe Bee back in 1968. Main benefits of that were you had to run round the lake to catch it before it hit the banks. It was a lot cheaper than an exercise bike. The Vic Smeed design looks really nice and with modern technology there is a lot more potential for this type of model. Its got me thinking now about building one . I am sure that some of the plans for the original ones are still available . Other option is to scratch build, fit it with a brushless electric motor and radio then go on a diet. Have fun- Boaty
