Guestbook Post by Les-Forbes Sub-Lieutenant   Posted: 2 days ago
It has and in many ways. I'm sailing for my little grandson who is only two. I have never sailed a model boat before, be it motor or yacht. But I'm determined to learn to pass on the him when is older. The articles you present are very informative and your club listings are excellent. I'm confident Ill continue to associate myself with your website and continue to learn.

No sign of a Shakespeare 20 🤔 Still, could be useful! You never know!! Thinks; will someone start asking awkward questions about a fishing license?? 😲 Cheers Doug 😎

34" sea commander Aerokits kit by RNinMunich Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 3 days ago
Hi Garth, If you mean Westbourne Models DON'T TOUCH 'EM WITH A 10FOOT BARGE POLE! Every model boat web site is full of long running threads about order taken, money paid and nothing delivered and no contact or just bullshit excuses! Also here - better look somewhere else 🤔 Cheers Doug 😎

Display stand and transport case. by pmdevlin Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 11 days ago
don't know why I thought you where lake district? Yeah, I went to the first few, out Derby way, it was great fun, run by the God of Fireboats, Peter Dimberline, but then other boats crept in, and the theme was lost. This website was originally only for aerokits Fireboats, but had to grow to survive, as we are the few!

Vosper 46ins. Crash Tender by robbob Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 16 days ago
Hi Rupert. Welcome to this website. There's a wealth of good information on this site about the RAF Crash Tenders. Have a look at the Build Blogs section for some previous builds. My own blog is there: Hopefully you'll find some useful tips and advice in that. Robbob.

new brighton model boat lake by RNinMunich Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 20 days ago
Hi onetenor (I'm still wondering what happened to the other one😉) No that's not my pool, it's a pic taken off the Eaton (not Eating!) Park, Norwich website. Here's my local 'pond'. In the Ostpark in east Munich. The building in the background is an excellent restaurant with terrace jutting out into the lake, with a Biergarten in front. That's where we operate from 👍😋😉very convenient, all mod cons! Cheers Doug 😎

Deans Seaplane tender by Dave M Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 21 days ago
Hi Doug Postal charges can add substantially to the cost. The charges from Krick are very high especially to the UK. Their website postal charges page suggests they only ship many items to Germany. So much for the EU being an open market! Our members are from across the globe so our USA and Australian friends will also have their own resident suppliers. HobbyKing as you say are Worldwide - just be careful which warehouse you buy from! We have many UK suppliers who sell a whole range of kits and fittings and I use Google to find local suppliers. SHGmodels are long established and do carry a vast range of bits and pieces for the model builder. Sorry no, I am not going to produce a 3D motor mount. No doubt someone will eventually do so via Thingiverse! Wayne must be on hols again. Was going to sail my Schooner today but there is no wind!!! Happy days Dave

Deans Seaplane tender by RNinMunich Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 22 days ago
Hi Dave, Sorry to hear that, depends in relation to what you order I suppose, may also depend on the order value, not uncommon with European suppliers! Most Krick or Robbe / now Romarin odds and ends or equivalents are also available in UK. Check their web site for distributors. My hints were just that; hints and tips. I've also noticed the same phenomenon with UK suppliers. Most of the 'stuff' I'm buying for the Sea Scout etc refit is via Hobbyking. That's why I mostly reference them when possible. Doug PS will you do the CAD design for the mount? 😉

smart phone problems by pmdevlin Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 1 month ago
Hi, I use a Samsung, and have been having problems viewing and posting with this phone for ages. Once on the website, a real annoying advert appears on the left, covering 2/3 of the screen, I cant get rid of it, and when trying to post, this screen as I type isn't visible, making the whole experience pretty awful. I know this is dumb user issues, But I cant fix it, can anyone help please!😭

huntsman plan by Black Dog Jack Seaman   Posted: 1 month ago
Model Boats magazine January 2016 ncluded a free plan of a Huntsman 31 complete with photos and a step by step build guide. Unfortunately the model is 24". I also wanted a bigger model so I redrew the plan double size. It wasn't too difficult and only took a couple of evenings with a some lining paper from B&Q and a calculator and voila! At the moment I am planking the roof of the cabins and trying to decide between a brushless motor and an old Weston rare earth brushed motor I used to use for fast electrics. The article in MB also ran into February 2016 where all the fiddly finishing bits were described, also with many photos. I expect one can obtain back issues from their web site. Anyone interested in Huntsmen should get these two issues for the detail alone.
