Skirtless hovercraft by Airtrooper Seaman   Posted: 11 months ago
Without a skirt your model will be limited to smooth surfaces such as floors and patios. It may even struggle on grass. However, if you're willing to accept these limitations you'll also bypass one of the tricky components of RC hovercraft!

HMS Dreadnought (S101) by Airtrooper Seaman   Posted: 1 year ago
That is a big advance on anything I have Doug! HUGE thanks! Also, it has been a couple of years since I last visited the RN Submarine Museum at Gosport and I can't locate the photos I took there. They had several superb models on display, including the one shown below (not my photo). In the background is the famous painting of the launch of HMS Dreadnought, but can anyone recall whether the model is also HMS Dreadnought, or one of her half-sisters (Valiant or Warspite, both 20ft longer), or another boat?

HMS Dreadnought (S101) by Airtrooper Seaman   Posted: 1 year ago
I also posted this at MBM was was also hoping people here might be able to help... I'm trying to find ANY plans (but especially lines and body plans) for the RN's first nuclear submarine, HMS Dreadnought (S101). The NMM charge a fortune IMO 😤 ,so not a viable option as I need to keep costs low. The Submarine Museum and the NMRN don't hold anything. 🤐 This has left me pretty much stuck! 😭 At this stage I'll be happy to find anything, even if it is lacking in detail! Perhaps someone out there can come to my aid please? For instance, does anyone know of any GA drawings published in books or magazines from any country around the globe? Many thanks in advance. Andy
