    She has no motor as yet, she's empty at he present time except for a old prop shaft. That will need to come out. I will probably put in a small brushless after cleaning her up and repainting.
    (Naval Ship) PT 109
    She handles very well on the water, great on turns it's like she is stuck to the water. Hardly any roll at all. But then like an idiot I ran her up the side of the pond and now need a new prop and prop shaft fitted. (Motor: 26CC PETROL ENGINE) (8/10)

    The boat is an ARTR, you have to fit your own receiver and battery and use your own transmitter. I will be using Spektrumโ„ข 2.4GHz DX2E marine radio system and the MR210 marine receiver. I have fitted in the receiver but up to now I haven't run this yet, but looking at online video it should be quite fast. Well that's what I am hoping. The transmitter I am using is the one that came with my Proboat Miss Geico. But the receiver is a newly purchased one. I still haven't had a chance to use this one yet. Too many other things going on at present so she will have to wait now until next spring. I think she will have to be run on a flat water. Don't know how she would react on a choppy surface. (ESC: Pre Installed) (8/10)
    (Racing Boat) Miss Geico
    Don't know how fast it is but straight from the box, nylon prop and 14.8 5000 mAh battery she is pretty fast. Turns on full lock of rudder at flat out. Great fun. Would recommend. I have run her many times since I added this on here. She is totally wicked. She turns so well and that's flat out. (10/10)

I hope that the managment of this group, if I have offended them with my comments that I have stepped in with, would have blocked my account.

    I can never do that do that. How do you trim the balsa and then rub it down to shape. I have picked up a 48" Perkasa Hull from a Boot Fair and the Balsa nose end blocks are a total mess. I have got to try to put them right. I think they are the sort of mess I would make.In the past the thing I usually do is recut a new hull base and side skins in ply and extend them and not use a balsa block. I am not too sure how I would get around the bow end on this hull with ply but I would give it a good try but but wether it would have the correct shape or not is another thing.

    This is great to see some RAF Crash Tender stuff on here again, this is the second in a few days I have seen. This site started of as a Crash tender site and that's why I joined. Don't get me wrong yes it's good to see all sorts of other boating things, but I am one of those who are mainly only into the Vosper styled hulls, MTB's and the like and then fast Power Boats. But I find scale and sailing boring myself๐Ÿ™Š
    . I accept we are all different and all have other tastes and styles. But the RAF Crash Tender's seem to be way on the back step on here now. I know there will be quite a few comments regarding what I have said and I am not saying that you shouldn't like other likes, and yes I do read lot's of them and do get idea's on ways of building and fitting out things but I am just a speed freak I suppose and also the Aerokit all boats as I have 4 different ones of them and just love the MTB styled hulls.I'll Just say a big sorry now ๐Ÿ™‰๐Ÿ™‰๐Ÿ™‰.

    I used Cascamite on many model boat builds with my father and also on my own after I left home. I have just thrown a large 2.5kg pot of Cascamite away that had been in the back of my garage for years. I got it from my brother in law who worked in the Gosport Naval Yard. It had a date on the pot of 1980, It had gone hard. I have used Aliphatic Resin over the last couple of years. I am still not sure which one of the glues I prefer. I do still have a lot of the pearl beads and the two part pot that I melt them down in. They are made from animal bones or something. I haven't heard of that Super Phatic I will check that out at the local model shop and see if they have it.

    Nice work, I like the stainless steel springs in the water coolinng scoop pipes. They can also be used as a filter for any weed or other debris that may get picked up in the cooling water. Great idea. I will have to try this myself.

    Hi DuncanP, I am very curious to know where did you get the chrome pen from please. It looks realy good. I have used a chrome spray on a couple of things when I was working on things underneath my motohome when rebuilding the rear suspension and I wasn't too inpressed. But for on modeling that looks great.

    My Sea Queen is still sitting on the shelf under the workbench in the Boat Shed. She's been there for about 6 year's. The Sea Commander is on another shelf at the end of the shed. They cannot see each other' if they could I think they might have some harsh word sto asy about me. A bit like my wife, "There are so many boat's in here and none of them seem to be getting anything done on them. Oh No he's only gone and bought another one". Just as well the one's in the shed can't see the other four in the house. And the Lady wife is not too happy about that either. ๐Ÿšค๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜ I think she thinks that I call boot fair's Boat Fair's because I have bought five from them. and I even got HER to pay ยฃ20 for one for me. ๐Ÿ˜‡

    Have you got any pictures of inside her now and maybe any of before you changed her. Can you show a couple of pictures of the bottom oh the hull please? I would like some idea's and insipration on another build that I might try. I have started to convert one of those cheap R/C twin motor boats I'm not sure if it's an NQD one. I am leaving in the 380 motor's for now but putting in better R/C instead of the wierd stuff the Chinese have put in. I have repainted it and the motor's will be worked from one speed controller and a seperate rudder fitted to the stern so the motors aren't used for turning the boat. It is still in the part way of the build. I haven't chnged the small prop shaft's. I'm just doing it for a bit of fun. I do have another one I might do a better job on and put in a brushless motor.

    Hi DWBrinkman,
    Yes that was what I meant, it's just over here in the UK all my friend's call them whether Petrol (gas as your side of the pond refer to it) or Nitro then they are quickly banning it in most area's. We do still had a few that I know of, but there are probably more, that still allow them. But the ones I do know of are a minimum of 50 miles from where I live.
    So I have sold off virtually all of my I/C engines and I'm slowly changing to Brushless Motors.

    Hi madwelshman,
    I have just seen you post. That is something I remember from school back in 1964. We used to do drawings like that in Technical Drawing Classes. Not that I can remember how to do it these days. I was 14 back then, 71 now. My problem was I couldn't be bothered to learn too much I just wanted to leave school. I was ok at there subjects, or maybe just liked doing them, they were metalwork, woodwork and the above class T.D. Not that great with maths, well just enough to get by with and those three classes were no good for a job without maths. So I left school at 14ys 11months to go to work in a butchers shop. Stayed there for 7 years then went into dry cleaning and the last 17 years of my working life was driving London Transport red busses I retired back in 2015. Oh boy does that picture bring back a memory or two.

    I look forward to seeing how both of them progress. Also a bit of video on the water. But maybe not a camera on the boats as you cannot actually see how they are performing and how they plane. Both of those hulls lift of the water so well. The Vosper style hull seems to look like they are stuck to the water even though they have lifted off of the water. I just love them. My PT 109 Elco copy, that is also the same style as the Vosper and that rides the water so well and I love the way that turns on the water. They are such good fun.

    I have three at the moment that I could choose from, there is a 31" Huntsman hull but has no superstructure, thisis how I bought it from Anglia Model Shop, sadly now shut down. Then I have a Stratos Interceptor that I got back in the 1990's. Also a 31" MFA Spearfish. All three have not been started. Then I also have a Aerokit's Sea Commander and an Aerokit's Sea Queen, this one I'm tempted to put my old Taycol Supermarine Double Special. So I have quite a choice. I am sure it would be far too big for my Aerokit's Sea Hornet. Such a brain teaser. I even have a Norstar Sea Rider. Decisions, Decisions.

    She's looking good, I finally bit the bullit and ordered the Z Drive and a second prop, the 33m one slightly larger than the one it says is on it in the spec list and also a syringe of thier gear grease. I paid him with a bank balance and it was posted the next day (yesterday). I am now eagerly awaiting its arival. I cannot wait to see yours perform on the water. I still have to decide which boat to put it onto.

    I'm not sure about those clip's they don't go all the way around the bellows. Will they be secure enough to stop any water getting in? Small cable ties would secure the full diameter of th bellows.

    That's a great site, the stock on that shop is far better then here in the UK. Our only problem buying from the USA is the cost of the shipping. SADLY.โ˜น๏ธ I forgot to say, the word frocks, I just hate, it is alomost as hard to type it as to say or hear it. I spent 25 years working in Dry Cleaning as a Shop manager and a Hoffman Presser and just banned that word as I hated it. Dress I feel is a nicer word.

    I would put some silicone grease in the bellows and then put small cable ties ower the bellows when fitted onto the brass tubes in the transom. I love the look of this. I am realy waiting to see her perform on the water. I am seriously tempted to get one of those outdrives.

    I am a bit confused here ChrisF ? are you also building a boat with the Z drive as I assumed this was Newby7's build blog??
    Anyway.
    The bellows should be ok even though as you say the rods move lateraly, but you could spin the servo 180 degrees and reduce the lateral movement there would be enough room in the bellows for that.
    I saw the B-M site and the z drive looks like the anti cavitation plate is a bit short to fix a pickup tube, but I myself would fit a piece of carbon fibre plate on to hold that and fit to the top ofit and shape it sa as not to look just like a bad add on.
    I have a couple of hulls, one Fibreglass Huntsman hull with just the deck already fitted. That came from Anglia Model Centre a few years back but with no superstructure. I will design my own when I make it up. Also an MFA Spearfish still in the box, I think it would look quite neat on that or even the old Areokits Sea Commander that I have got for a refurb.
    I even have an unbuilt Stratos Hydrofibre Interceptor that I bought back in the 80's which all I done to that was to start to fit some holes on the decking for some stantions and then put it back in the box. so I do have a few options.
    I am going to thin out ny boats, I'm selling off 2 RAF Crash Tenders a 46" Vintage model boat company remake and a Genuine Aerokits 34" that I bought back in 1994 when they advertised in the Model Boats mag. It was advertised as 50 kits for the 50th anniversary of the boat.
    Still unmade.
    I sold the Graupner Z drive as it was so heavy and decided that I didn't like the look of itโ˜น๏ธ.

    Hi Scratchbuilder,
    I hope that I havn't said anything wrong to offend or spoil the way this site works.
    I just thought my comments were in somewhat of a constructive nature. I have been a modeler for 63 years now and I don't think I will ever give it up. I still feel that even now I have a lot to learn.
    My modeling skills are just basic realy, as everyhting I do has to be by hand as I have no heavy work machines, just 1 basic pilar drill and a couple of bench grinders with grind wheels and wire brush and a polishing wheel. That's my full power side of my modeling machines.
    My wife is not amused when I bring another boat or car home, lost count up to now 17 or 18ish. Only about 4 runners now as I have pulled all IC motors out now and about to sell the last 3 IC's hopefully on Ebay.
    Also just put two RAF Crash Tenders on Ebay, and one of them is an original Aerokits model I bought in 1994 still in unmade kit form.
    Going brushless and still going to fit one or two with brushed one will be a Taycol Double Supermarine .
    Sorry to go on.
    Once again I hope I have not have been in anyway a problem on here.
    TOM aka BOATSHED.

    Hi Newby7,
    I see you have a different motor on the Z drive. It looks like a 500 series motor. I thought you was going brushless on it as that was what was on the original picture?
    Are you using the rubber bellows on the transom to prevernt water entering the boat?
    I have been looking at thet z drive and I am realy tempted. I am eager to see how your boat performs with it.

    I find this now most upsetting. I have been on this site now for 13 years or there abouts. We are all on here to seek out help and information to aid us all in our model boating. When we register we don't put on here that we have any dissabilities in anyway.
    Whether it be Learning, Phisical or Mental. ๐Ÿ™‰๐Ÿ™ˆ๐Ÿ™Š
    I am no moderator but shouldn't all the sniping just cease and all of us be the adults that we are. It would be a shame to loose both Maverick and cormorant for pointless remarks. None of us are too old to learn, I myself have learn't a lot from being on here.
    I hope I haven't offended anyone with my remarks, we all do this type of hobbyis such a way that we feel we like the most. I am a self confessed speed freak and find I like this the most. I started off with an RAF Crash Tender in 1959 and joined this site when it was the Fireboat Site for this reason but has evolved to accomodate all types of boating. But I had been enjoying all types of speedboat models as I grew older. I have never been in to Battleships, Submarines, Tug boats or Sailing Boats, but I wouldn't tell anyone to change from there perticular style of boating.
    Sorry once again if I have offended anybody.
    But lets all just be friendly and stay on here and enjoy our Hobby.
