    ๐Ÿ“ Tamar Lifeboat propellers
    27 days ago by alan50 ( Able Seaman)
    Flag
    Hi
    Want to change to brass propellers on Model Slipway 1/16 Tamar Lifeboat.
    Lost one of the original plastic propeller supplied in kit , and looking at Roboesch 40mm brass as replacements . Not sure whether to go for 3 or 4 blades and type A or C Type props. Good speed from the supplied props with kit running with brushless Tornado 3536 1050kv on 3s lipo. Any recommendations of what to go for would be helpful. Thanks

    Thanks for that Martin
    I will fix with metric studding and put a nut on underside of hull. Remove parts and spray deck first . Might go for Halfords Polar Grey as nobody has come up with any other suggestions.

    Hi
    the model Slipway kit doesn't have spigots on deck fitting although l could make my own spigots. Then should l look to fix to deck before or after spraying.

    Hi
    In the process of building a modelslipway 1/16 Tamar and wanting to know what rattle can shade of grey to use on the deck. Also should l paint the deck the finish colour then glue fittings on afterwards, or glue first and spray everything in situe. My first model boat so any info would be helpful.

    ๐Ÿ“ Tamar motor help

    Hi all


    Just got around to start building a Modelslipway 1/16 Tamar . This being my first model boat and RC I am at a loss to what motors to fit . I would prefer to install conventional brushed motors ,but the ones recommended a few years ago 600 eco are no longer available Would be grateful for any proven recommendations ,or any easy setup using brushless without cooling . Trying to keep it simple and not too expensive
    Thanks in advance for any comments .
