    (Naval Ship) Sir Kay (T241)
    This is my Sir Kay (T241) - Round Table Class Minesweeper. it is from the Caldercraft range and I was fortunate to recently acquire it - I would have much preferred to have built it but couldn't miss the opportunity of it being given to me by an old retiring modeller. it just needed new RC throughout, a good clean, a tidy up and some fresh paint here and there plus a bit of rigging renewal. Not tried it in the water yet but will do tomorrow at our Club meet. (Motor: MFA Geared 2.5:1) (ESC: Mtroniks) (5/10)
    (Yacht) DF65
    The DF65 range of yachts by Joysway are an exciting introduction into sailing a racing yacht. Easy to sail, not too expensive and you can change the rigs in about 5 minutes as the weather dictates. I also sai lother yachts incuding my IOM Class but the DF65 is so easy to transport in the car to the lake. I usually use either my A or A+Rigs and find them perfectly acceptable for a lot of wind ranges on an inland lake but you may need to change down to a B rig if you sail in exposed locations. There is a great racing scene around the country and internationally as the DF 65 and DF 95 in their own special class or within the RG 65 class. (10/10)
    (Fire Boat) Vosper Firefloat
    This is one of my oldest and favourite boats - as you can see it is a Fireboat but it is not a Vosper Mk 2. it was kit built at one time but I haven't been able to track down what it is. is like a Vosper Firefloat Mk.2 but it is different. The bridge section of my boat is different being longer, the mid-ship section having three windows in lieu of two and the stern is completely different in profile. I first wrote about my boat on the Model Fireboat Website back in 2010 and asked for any help in identification but despite lots of good comment but I was none the wiser. I contacted Terry Holtham who is an acknowledged expert in RAF Marine craft having written many books and he provided me with a lot of information and said "It bears an uncanny resemblance to the drawing I received which was an official Vosper drawing but not with a number or date I have presumed it to be what I believe is the Mk 1 version of the 46ft Firefloat". However this is not definitive and I still have no real answer. Great fast little boat that 'turns on a sixpence' though. (Motor: Graupner 600 Turbo) (ESC: Torpedo 30 Amp) (8/10)
    (Yacht) Koh-i-Noor
    I bought this yacht via a well known auction website. it was owned by an old gent who had passed away and was covered in dust and the ABS white hull had yellowed with age. I cleaned the yacht up, rubbed the timber decks down and varnished them, re-painted the superstructure, rubbed down the hull and spayed the hull a grey/brown colour. it came complete with auxiliary motor, batteries, sail winch servo, ESC and navigation light switching unit. The yacht sails perfectly and looks great on the water. A real bargain buy. (Motor: Robbe) (ESC: Hitec Gold) (9/10) I have now made and fitted a fin to the keel to imprve the handling of the yacht in higher winds. Robbe used to supply one as an accessory but not avialable now of course so I made my own using layers of lead sheet wrapped in plasticard then filled, sanded to shape, fitted and painted to match the hull/keel. Certainly improves the sailing and the yacht doesn't heel over in high winds or gusts as it did previously.
    (Working Vessel) Northlight Clyde Puffer
    The Clyde Puffer is a Caldercraft kit of 1:32 scale. it is a representative model of a typical small coaster from the Western isles of Scotland, known to many ship lovers as a 'Clyde Puffer'. it has a GRP hull which has full external detail, riveting, strakes etc. and a plywood superstructure and decking plus over 200 white metal fittings. As usual for Caldercraft you need to have your thinking cap on as the A0 plan and the 'instruction book' do not match up but of course they do expect you to have a little bit of experience in model building. it has taken me about 6 months to build, but working on and off over this time. it has a large hull which is easy to house the motor, ESC, RC and batteries, etc. (I installed 2 lead acid 6 volt batteries, one on each side amidships) which gives stability and ballast. Being a large deep hull it needs a lot of ballast, even in its short length. I have only tested her in the big white test tank at home so do not know how it will perform on our lake. I have sailed her many times on our lake and she certainly sails well. I installed an electronic switch for the navigation lights and gives a good effect during the darker afternoons/evening. (Motor: MFA) (ESC: Viper Marine 15) (9/10)
    (Tug Boat) 'Westbourne' PLA Tug
    Westbourne is a Port of London Authority steam Tug from the Caldercraft Mini-Fleet Range - it is 1:48 scale. This model was discontinued a few years ago but I did manage to purchase a brand new boxed one via ebay a couple of years ago. it has taken me about 18 month to complete but only working off and on for some time until recently when I decided I needed to get a move on with it. The hull has limited access for the RC, batteries, steering servo and motor but I have managed to fit it in neatly with access to all parts, I have fitted batteries on both sides amidships in the hull acting as both ballast and stability. I have now run my tug on our club pond and she sits perfectly on the water and no other ballast required. I originally installed a geared motor at 2.5:1 and I thought that the tug was sailing a little faster than I wanted so I changed to my 6:1 setup but the speed and control was poor, so I went back to my original set up. On the whole I am very pleased at how she has turned out. Now started on my Northlight Clyde Puffer. (Motor: MFA) (ESC: Viper 15 Marine) (9/10)
    (Working Vessel) Paula III
    A great little boat from Graupner, plenty of detail and sails/handles very well. it has been sunk on our lake by one of the other larger yachts but I managed to retrieve it and dry it out - the only issue is that I don't have too much low speed control in forward from the ESC but nevertheless works still. I have just given my Paula 3 a makeover - just used some spare bits and pieces that were left over from othere builds, plus a good rubbing down and re-spray. (Motor: 540) (ESC: Fleet Control Systems) (8/10)
    (Working Vessel) Lady Laura
    This was a scratch built boat made of ply which I based on a hull from Model Boat Magazine but modified. Wheel house and superstructure to my design. Not yet completed in full but sails well with no leaks. Great little general purpose fishing vessel suitable for my grandchildren to sail as slow enough for them to learn to handle and control the boat properly. (Motor: Graupner 600 ECO) (ESC: Hitec 10 Amp) (8/10)
    (Naval Ship) Perkasa
    I have just completed this model - just waiting for the new prop to arrive along with a flag for the main mast. it was a Precedent all wood kit and not too Impressed with the materials but you only get what you pay for. Overall I think it has turned out not too bad and it seemed to get better the more I worked on it (or is that psychlogical)Tested in the Marine testing laboratory (white bath) and floats OK with no sign of a leak (fingers crossed). Boat finally completely finished 30/12/12 and new 2-blade prop fitted and great turn of speed. Now got the ESC working properly and she has taken on another dimension in terms of speed - no more taking turns at high speed !! She is planing on just the stern and very skittish at heavy turn of the rudder so gently does it. (Motor: Graupner 700 Speed Turbo) (ESC: Tornado 50 Amp) (9/10)
    (Other) Bruma
    Bruma is a Ketch based on a converted trawler. it is a plank on frame model by Mantua. (Motor: 2 x MFA 400) (ESC: Viper Marine) (9/10)
    (Tug Boat) Alte Liebe
    My tug Alte Liebe is from a Caldercraft Kit. She weighs about 30 lbs including ballast. She sails really well at a realsitic scale speed. I keep adding bits to her (adding to her beauty - in my eyes !!) as and when I feel the need to or when I am bored of working on my other boats. (Motor: MFA) (ESC: Hitec SP-610 RF) (9/10)

    I am sure that on the previous software when looking for Clubs, etc. they were in alphabetical order. They now seem to be in order of the last post against a particular Club, Lakes, etc.
    It was a lot easier to find Clubs before - is there any chance that this can be re-instated or the ability to sort by name or last post, etc. ?

    The TIO has a safety low battery voltage cut-off for LIPO batteries whereas the Viper 15 does not have this facility. if you are confident in not running down your LIPO battery to below a 'safe limit' then you should be OK to just use the ordinary Viper.

    Many years ago the council used barley straw bales on our model boat pond, no major improvement but a year or two later the bales started to break up and we had continual problems of straw being wrapped around our propellers. We prefer to put up with the green algae and let nature take its course.

    πŸ“ Lost Tamar Class Model Lifeboat
    1 year ago by ads90 ( Chief Petty Officer 2nd Class)
    Flag
    I am the secretary of our boat club and about a month ago I was notified by a member of the public that he had found the superstructure of a model lifeboat on his way home in the Basingstoke area. I now have that superstructure in my possession but asked around all our members and loaclly but no-one has any idea who may be the owner.
    It is from a 1:16 scale Tamar Class Model Slipway boat and the build quality is pretty good standard but it has suffered some damge but I do also have the some of the parts. It appears that it might have fallen from the back of someone's trailer behind a car, bike or mobility scooter - yes some of our older members now take their boats to our lake that way. However the Model Slipway boat is 1000mm long and a beam of 320mm and with motors, batteries and ballast would weigh quite a bit. The superstucture of the boat is named but I will hold back on that information until hopefully someone can come along and identify it as theirs.

    So if you know anyone who might have lost it near Basingstoke, Hampshire (Southern England for those who might not know where this is) please get back to me.

    Look for the YouTube videos of the building/rigging. They are not bad to build and rig but don't think you will do it in the time they say- it takes a little longer. I have done a few sails now for my DF65 which is basically the same as the DF95 and it gets easier the more you do and in fact I have now re-rigged my first A Sail as I thought I could make a better job now.
    Take your time and it will be quite satisfying when you complete it.

    It looks as if it is going to be a good exhibition and modest entrance fees too. A long way for a day out for us Southerners though.

    It was a really good show yesterday at Midhurst with Basingstoke, Phoenix, Swiss Cottage, Portsmouth Model Display Team, Portsmouth Power Boat, Selsey and Springbok model boat clubs to name a few. A good many visitors and good camaraderie between clubs, so good all round exhibition which also included great model train layouts and the fantastic Meccano modellers.
    Here's to next year guys.

    Nice display Colin but how do you transport them to the exhibitions ? I take 3 boats to the exhibitions we attend and that is enough - have you got an HGV then ?😊
