H.M.S. BRAVE BORDERER by RHBaker Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 21 minutes ago
Thanks all for the responses. Donnieboy - have thought out the plumbing, which is simplified by using a cooling pump. See future episodes! Doug - appreciate the concern regarding the red ESC wires. Have been trying to understand the rationale behind that theory. If all ESCs share a common input voltage, i.e. from one battery, what would the connection of multiple red wires do? Can understand if there were several unique power sources, but that is not the case here. Perhaps with your electronics background you can explain. Colmar - Used the angle on the scale drawing. If it were good enough for Vosper, should be good enough for me! Think it close to 7 degrees anyway. Think short shafts with oilers should help. Have heard of bushings running dry and seizing with these high speed motors. The initial props are scale versions of the originals. Rather suspect they will not prove to be ideal. Have purchased some 2 blade racing style props for a future test. They have a much coarser pitch and are designed for high speed motors. Intend to use plastic props initially as they are cheap enough to experiment with. Perhaps others have a comments on the cavitation question?. Incidentally, this is my first high speed boat too, but there is much of information on both this web site and Model Boat Mayhem for guidance. Posting questions always generates useful information. Look widely though at all types of fast models, MTBs, RAF launches, E Boats etc. - it has all been done before!

HMS HOOD by Trumpeter by cormorant Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 6 days ago
Hi Peter If you look at this website you will see that there are enough incorrect items to drive you mad. I have decided to get it as accurate as the kit allows. I have installed a Graupner 6v smoke generator in each funnel with a computer fan at the base of each - yet to be tested. I propose to switch them on and off with a receiver controlled switch. I would like to be able to colour the smoke but have yet to find the correct formula. Steve

Help Needed new Builder Billings St Canute by Richard7 Chief Petty Officer   Posted: 8 days ago
Doug, when l purchase the compact battery pack from the web site you advised, do you think l need to purchase a different charger? I have a sprint charger that l was using for the longer battery pack that will not fit into the St Canute. Cheers Richard

site surgestions by Fireboat Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 9 days ago
It's a good idea and I can see how this is useful on mobile platforms. I'm currently working on a new website so will take it into consideration. The new site is being built from the ground up to support any device and any screensize. One thing you can do on iPhone and iPads at least, is tap the top status bar where the clock is displayed. This will scroll to the top of the page you're viewing. In the blog section it's also possible to view newest posts first, although this makes less sense for forum threads so they're likely to stay in chronological order. Not at a point to release more details on the new website, but I think you'll all be very pleased with it when it arrives! As Doug says we are a volunteer run website, so sometimes things take a bit more time, but we get there! Thanks for the feedback. Stephen

norton cross by kmbcsecretary Captain   Posted: 10 days ago
one of our club members built this and i remember him saying although it is a good looking tug when finished it was a pain to build with a number of mistakes on the plans and this was confirmed from the original skipper of the norton cross. if wish to see some pics visit our website and click on the gallery links Ron

Amati chrome plated ships wheel - Help! by Black Dog Jack Chief Petty Officer   Posted: 16 days ago
I got it from the excellent Cornwall Model Boats. Look in Amati model boat fittings on their website and select “ships wheels”. It’s the last one on the list and looks like it came of my Dad’s old Ford Pop. It arrived in a small zip lock plastic bag with no instructions or other details. Also for its size (40mm dia.) it is remarkably heavy - and very slippery. However I do this it’s going to need a jig to hold it (plasticine?) as the jointing tags are about one millimetre square.
