Guestbook Post by Les-Forbes Lieutenant   Posted: 5 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.

Display stand and transport case. by pmdevlin Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 14 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: 19 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.

Vosper 46ins. Crash Tender by RUPERT Apprentice   Posted: 19 days ago
Hello Having just added my name to the Model Boat website I have under construction the 46ins. crash tender. Am about to add the brushless motor and propshaft this seems ok but working out what servo ,the wiring is more tricky also cooling for the speed controller, would this be better pumped through rather than scooped up? Any advice or suggestions would be most helpful.

new brighton model boat lake by RNinMunich Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 23 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: 25 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

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!😭

South Bavaria Scale Model Boat Builders by Krampus Commander   Posted: 2 months ago
From here, in the warm but cloudy side, 28 or 29 C for tomorrow. This weekend I'm taking the family (they are here for my kid's school vacation) to the Maryland Eastern Shore (Ocean City, etc) so I bet it will be boat eye candy. Annapolis is near here as well. Super nice. If you visit Garmisch in October, take one of your boats and visit either the Badersee or closer to the Bowling alley you can take it to the pond I mentioned to you earlier (Loisachbad, by the playground). Their website is They have a small snack shack with little chairs and tables, so you got the whole deal. You will love that pond and best of all, the water is clean enough to swim in case your boat goes adrift.

Deck furniture by rolfman2000 Captain   Posted: 2 months ago
If you go to battlecrafts shop on eBay, or battlecrafts own website. All the deck furniture and weaponry are available in resin casting or resin an metal castings from them. Both in 1/32 & 1/24th scale. I have made some and bought some from battlecrafts. I have found them very helpful and also very fast delivery. Hope that helps. Best wishes, Dave W

Hi Olly. As you have the 850 motors, what about 2 - 1 belt drive from MFA, there website gives spacing and belt length details. This might give a slight improvement in speed and endurance. Mark

1960 Keil Kraft catalogue. by robbob Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 2 months ago
While doing a bit of research on model boat fittings I came across this Keil Kraft catalogue on the RClibrary website. It makes for very interesting reading and has a foreword by Eddie Keil and an article by the legendary Vic Smeed. There's lot's more great vintage magazines on the site too 😁 EDIT. Check this one out as well: It has a boatbuilding article by L J Rowell Robbob.
