Vosper MTB by AllenA Captain   Posted: 10 days ago
Seems that Vosper is well followed. This is a Vosper MTB 1/2" scale illustrated in the Model Engineer in September 1951. The detail of the six pounder is superb.

What Gun? by cormorant Admiral   Posted: 1 month ago
Hi Doug Sorry, I should have been more specific. It is/was on RSS P72 Sovereignty of the Singapore Navy. The boat is a 110' Vosper fast attack craft and I have a part built 1/24scale Veron model based on it. The official spec says that some boats were fitted with 40mm Bofors and some with 76.2mm Bofors. Please see pic of the real boat and a model which is in the Singapore Navy Museum Steve

Vosper 73ft 380 by rolfman2000 Commander   Posted: 2 months ago
If it's of any consolation Andy, I did exactly the same thing 2 weeks ago at our (Worcester Model Boat Club) lake. I spent all week getting two models ready for sailing. Get to the lake, and .......... no Transmitter 😲 Oh dear me (or words somewhat similar in gist) 😊

The electrics, drive & radio by robhenry Seaman   Posted: 2 months ago
I am very impressed with your superb work on this kit. Some years ago I provided a lot of data on my two boats to Mike together with Original Vosper data. I am pleased that his kits are doing well. [ I have an Aerokits 46" boat and a much newer 46" GRP hulled boat. Both have twin drive trains and mixers. ] I am surprised that you have not fitted false keels and twin props/drive trains to your boat as the Vosper boats had. ? Apart from good planing performance both of my boats can turn in their own length as the original 93 / 94 boats could do. I hope your boat looks as good on the water as your pics so far suggest.

Jet Sprint Boat by simonk Seaman   Posted: 2 months ago
Looking amazing! I've been following your build. Its been something I've been thinking about doing again for a while now. Scratch built one at 14yo for 4th form metal work but nowhere near this standard, was a steep learning curve and know a lot more now. Cast an aluminium intake using a plaster mould formed from hand carved patterns and a sheet metal hull. Powered by a second hand OS40 from the local RC plane club with copper pipe wrapped around the head. However the sheet metal hull I designed wasn't right. Rebuilt out of ply from measurements of a real boat, used the trailer as a reference plane and grid (lived in New Zealand). Better success but believe the model needs to be about your size to get the handling dynamics right. Then hull got smashed shortly after when my family moved house. 25 years later I'm thinking about it again. Have a 50yo Vosper crash tender to finish first though (3rd generation to work on it). Like the Kermit idea! My suggestion is the pic should be of a running Kermit and the boat named 'Losing Miss Piggy'. Edit: Just had a laugh when checking your profile, I grew up 46km down the road from you in Levin. Horowhenua College, ran boats on the Manawatu River. You planning on running this up the gorge?

The suction hoses – part 2. by BOATSHED Commander   Posted: 2 months ago
Looking forward to seeing the fully finished Crash Tender and video of her on the water. What about a Vosper MTB with motorized torpedo's. Not exploding though.

How many is to Many by rolfman2000 Commander   Posted: 3 months ago
Well. Having listed my fleet earlier, I bought a couple of "to do" Veron Police launches on eBay earlier in the week. When collecting them, Ross said "I have a few more to get rid of for a friend of mine", and that, as they, is history. I left there with, and added to my fleet... 2 x Veron Thames Police Launch. 1 x 34" PT 109 (scratchbuilt). 1 x Vosper RTTL (kit unknown). 1 x 46" Aerokits RAF Fire/Crash Tender. Those of you who are paying attention, will not I have just doubled my fleet. And with another 46" fire tender on the horizon, my total will be up to 11 now (only actually 3 in sailing condition), but lots of projects and "to do's" in store. Best wishes, Dave W. 😊
