The Lone Ranger Rides Again or Hull Finishing ;-)) by RNinMunich Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 4 days ago
Hi Mark, here's the link to the manufacturer website. Forgot to mention, the gloss white I used is also from them, from the 'belton' series. The Primer Filler and Protection Laquer are from the 'Auto K' series. Don't know if they can send paints to UK🤔 Maybe they have a British distributor? look forward to pics of the Puffer 👍 Doug 😎

Quiet day at the lake. by figtree7nts Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 4 days ago
Hi Colin, Can't you email your pictures? To some one and have them upload the pictures for you! I'm sure one of us from the website could do that for you... If you need PM me the picture and I'll do it?

Port lights in place! by figtree7nts Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 7 days ago

Aerokits Patrol Torpedo Boat by MouldBuilder Sub-Lieutenant   Posted: 12 days ago
Hi Doug. I have just noticed that you have already answered my battery question in an earlier post. Do you have, by any chance, a legend for the MTB drawings you posted earlier. I cannot recognise some of the parts. The machine guns in the other picture look superb. I have found them on a website but it states they are brittle. Is this your experience with this kind of 3d printed item? Thanks.😉

Fairmile D 1/24 Scale Build by Smiffy Sub-Lieutenant   Posted: 13 days ago
Hi Andy I am interested to read about your plans for a dog boat as I am thinking of doing the same (when my Thames steam launch is eventually finished....!). One reason that I am considering this is that my headmaster, when I was at Maidenhead Grammar School in the 1960's, was a former skipper of MGB 658 and I am lucky enough have autographed copies of two of his books. "Motor Gunboat 658" is a fascinating read if you haven't already come across it, as is "Dog Boats at War" with plenty of useful information and photographs - just two of the books by Len Reynolds DSC. (He rose from Navigating Officer to Captain during the war in the Mediterranean theatre and served on MGB 658 from its commissioning in 1943 to the war's end.) Apologies by the way if you already know all this! Two questions if you don't mind - are you going to do a complete scratchbuild from plans or complete a fibreglass hull, and which/whose plans are you using? This may help my own decisions later on. I have seen that there are plenty of the appropriate weapons in 1/24th scale on the Deans website which should make life easier with the fiddly bits! Very best wishes with the build. Smiffy

Ranking System by mturpin013 Captain   Posted: 14 days ago
Although a relatively new member and with no naval background at all I can only agree with the more informed, and thanks for the hard work that goes into maintaining a website like this its really appreciated. Michael T PS how do you open the excel file?

emails by dragon Commander   Posted: 14 days ago
Hi ref The emails we were on about from the website I have just got 5 of the same subject (rudder servos.)

Ranking System by Fireboat Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 15 days ago
Hi Smiffy, Admiral of the Fleet indeed is correct, but was shortened deliberately to reduce the length of the text. In some areas of the website it's too long to display properly. 1st, 2nd and 3rd sea lord is a viable option. Will see what others come up with too 😎

Ranking System by Fireboat Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 15 days ago
Hi All, right now there's a chance to update the ranking system on the website. It won't be updated until later in the year, but I'd like to give you all a chance to comment on the attached restructuring. The only thing that is important, is that we have 20 different ranks. I don't mind if we mix US and UK, or ranks from different forces, provided it makes rough logical sense. Please submit your opinions and amendments below. Many thanks, Stephen

Anyone else...... by bilzin Commander   Posted: 22 days ago
I finally managed to contact the Dumas website after a bit of searching ( the link on here is naff) and paid for a plan and instructions via paypal. The next day I received an email from Dumas stating that they had refunded my payment and were sending me the plan and instructions free of charge....well I never !!!! Thanks Dumas
