another daft question by mturpin013 Lieutenant   Posted: 1 day ago
Interesting article in Model Boats web site which mentions joggling, however I'm still none the wiser. and in addition an interesting article on decking in the Titanic Research and Modeling Association web site. after some more research I found this comment by Ian Gardner "I find, when joggling planks into the waterway or king plank, it is useful, if you have the facilities, to grind a chisel the width of the joggling to chop out the recess in the waterway. This is usually one third the width of the plank being used if memory serves. The chisel can be made from a an old needle file and hardened after grinding." and pictures of joggled joints It appears its cutting into the waterway or king plank. In a way you can see the reason its called joggling as it gives the same profile as in metal joggling eg "Z"

Too Powerful Brushless ? by Traiderman Sub-Lieutenant   Posted: 9 days ago
hi Dave M, well that was good info on the Lipo's i was going to put them in Parallel But certainly won't now! i will use one and then swap over when necessary as you suggest,Thanks! As far as the 500 watt motor is concerned, i have not purchased it as yet but as a previous post stated that i need a smaller wattage than 500 , i will carry on looking for a smaller wattage and low KV size motor, although all i seem to find are are very powerful ones! even on the web sites named in the post but i will phone them in the morning and ask. the Boat does have a keelson, a piece of angled wood below the hull and also one inside the boat and this shows about 1 1/2" of tube either end of the shaft to fit the supports. Thanks graham

Prop shaft by figtree7nts Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 13 days ago
Thanks Doug! Just added it to my website resources log! Now, I know where to get prop shafts from!

Prop shaft by RNinMunich Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 13 days ago
Hi Ed, sorry 🤔 occurred to me later I should have posted the link! Download the catalogue and you'll find all the info. The other page links are useless, they only re-direct you again to the Download Catalogue.😲 Otherwise there is no useful product info on the website 🤔 Cheers Doug, Happy Tugging 😉

Prop shaft by figtree7nts Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 13 days ago

Prop Shop by Dave M Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 18 days ago
Sadly the company closed following a fire. Happily the designer Simon Higgins is still selling his props via a Facebook page and e-mail address. Simon Higgins- Protean Design 01789 565228 0797 7193759 There is an website under construction but just 4 pages Happy days

Too Powerful Brushless ? by Dave M Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 18 days ago
Hi Doug Thanks for the update on PropShop. I can't find a way to order from Raboesch, they seem to have agreed distribution with Jotika who have not yet set up to take orders. The Raboesch web site directs me to the USA for distributors! Cornwall Model Boats do stock so all is not lost.

Too Powerful Brushless ? by RNinMunich Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 18 days ago
Hi Mark, all good stuff, as ever from you👍 Just one thing; Prop Shop has ceased production after the fire they had. Probably only still trading until rest stock is sold and the business then wound up. 🤔 So I would go straight to Raboesch (or Krick here in Germany) for cast props and suitable matched shafts. You can download the whole catalogue from their site to browse at your leisure 😉 This is the announcement on the Prop Shop site Cheers Doug 😎 "Welcome to the Prop Shop web site. AS YOU ARE PROBABLY AWARE A FIRE IN APRIL 2017 SERIOUSLY DAMAGED OUR PRODUCTION FACILITIES. SINCE THEN WE HAVE BEEN NEGOTIATING OUR CLAIM WITH OUR INSURANCE COMPANY. JUST BEFORE CHRISTMAS A SETTLEMENT WAS REACHED. REGRETTABLY THE AMOUNT WE HAVE BEEN PAID IS NOT SUFFICIENT TO ENABLE US TO FULLY RE-ESTABLISH OUR PRODUCTION CAPABILITY. WE MUST ADVISE THEREFORE THAT THE DECISION HAS NOW BEEN TAKEN FOR "PROPSHOP" TO CEASE TRADING. WE WANT TO THANK ALL OUR LOYAL CUSTOMERS FOR THEIR SUPPORT OVER MANY YEARS AND SINCERELY HOPE YOU FIND SUITABLE ALTERNATIVE PRODUCTS THAT MEET YOUR NEED. REGARDS, PROPS SHOP TEAM January 2018" 🤔

Streamline Models by Little-Charlie Sub-Lieutenant   Posted: 19 days ago
Has any one heard if the above Streamline models has gone bankrupt only I paid for a kit of "The Annie" last December and have not received it and now I am not getting any answers to my emails or phone calls and the web site has disappeared off of the internet. So buyer beware
