The Building Board by Brianaro Sub-Lieutenant   Posted: 2 months ago
Hello Ianh. Deluxe Materials supply a 60 minute epoxy, Speed Epoxy 11 product code AD71. www.deluxematerials.com I’ve used it and it’s very good. Good luck with the build

A return to the hobby! by Brianaro Sub-Lieutenant   Posted: 3 months ago
Hello. I have a soft spot for Sea Commander, I built one somewhere around 1964/5 when I was 13 with the help of my brother in law. I enjoyed the build and painting and buying fittings with my pocket money. I remember the long drying time of Cascamite wood glue! I think I had Frog petrol engine and Macgregor radio, all purchased from Roland Scot. After a couple of years I sold the boat and bought a new Moulton bicicle. I wish I still had both now

Multi tool Kits by Brianaro Sub-Lieutenant   Posted: 4 months ago
Difficult to know, unless you buy Dremel most of these sort of tools seem to be of similar quality. I’ve found that some (regardless of cost) ware out fairly quickly. This set isn’t a lot of money so not much to loose if not up to much, but I think you will get your money’s worth out of most if not all of the items

Fairly Hunsman renovation part 1 by Brianaro Sub-Lieutenant   Posted: 4 months ago
Good thinking. If it helps, The Fairey Owners Club www.faireyownersclub.co.uk has a lot of info and reference pictures on these boats and Charles Lawrence wrote Fairey in Context and Fifty Years of Fairey Raceboats czczcz@me.com (that is right). The original boats I’m told were painted with International Paints Oxford Blue 105 and White 905. I purchased these from a yacht chandlery.

Emoticons, Keyboards & accented letters by Brianaro Sub-Lieutenant   Posted: 4 months ago
On an iPhone you can go to settings, general, keyboard and then add another language. A ‘globe’icom then appears at the bottom of the key board allowing you to switch between languages

So, why not woodies?... by Brianaro Sub-Lieutenant   Posted: 4 months ago
Good point. Maybe the beautiful wood finish is daunting to many people and putting builders off. It’s much easier being able to sand, fill and paint a hull etc to hide build quality than to construct it without the need for all of this. Just a thought.

Solent Lifeboat by Brianaro Sub-Lieutenant   Posted: 4 months ago
I’ve just found your blog, what a brilliant job you are doing, what a difference. The detail you are achieving is remarkable. How is the build coming along?

Which battery? by Brianaro Sub-Lieutenant   Posted: 4 months ago
Thank you for that, it has helped a lot. I have liPo in another fast boat and do worry about the safety, I keep and charge it in a fire proof bag. I will need weight at the front of the boat so Lead Acid will probably assist. The build is good fun. Thanks again

Which battery? by Brianaro Sub-Lieutenant   Posted: 4 months ago
I have a 1:16 Taymar lifeboat with twin Graupner 600 motors. Which batteries, Lead Acid or NiMH. Can anyone help please, what is the benefit of one over the other?

Fibreglass hull/deck fit by Brianaro Sub-Lieutenant   Posted: 6 months ago
I don’t currently have an operational boat so not at the moment. Back in the ‘60s I built a Sea Commander and used to sail that regularly at Princes Park. Eastbourne Model Power Boat Club use the lake but I haven’t seen them there for a long time, not sure when they sail, there are often EMYC events there though when I’ve been to the park, it’s a good lake.

I hit the button to chant the keyboard to danish and spell check changed the word!

Fibreglass hull/deck fit by Brianaro Sub-Lieutenant   Posted: 6 months ago
Thanks for that I’ll check out the instructions. The craft is a Moslem Slipway Tamar Lifeboat and the deck was supplied with the hull! Thanks again

Fibreglass hull/deck fit by Brianaro Sub-Lieutenant   Posted: 6 months ago
That’s about right. Thank you I think that’s all I can do, it pulls up tight in places

Fibreglass hull/deck fit by Brianaro Sub-Lieutenant   Posted: 6 months ago
Thank you for that, I have pulled them with tape although it’s hard to get it to hold in position, it does then mostly fit leaving areas to fill

Fibreglass hull/deck fit by Brianaro Sub-Lieutenant   Posted: 6 months ago
I’m have 1m long x 320mm beam fibreglass hull and s fibreglass deck 310mm at its widest. When dry fitted there is a gap about 8mm wide each side rearward of the bow. The deck measurements are symetrical side to side. Should I force the hull sides to fit as tight as possible or leave the gap and fill it or something in the middle? Any help would be appreciated, thank you.

Speedline Lifeboat crew by Brianaro Sub-Lieutenant   Posted: 6 months ago
Typo, that should have been, does anyone know where I can buy Speedline 1:12 Lifeboat crew

Speedline Lifeboat crew by Brianaro Sub-Lieutenant   Posted: 6 months ago
Thank you for that, yes please I would like to buy them from you, how do we arrange that?

Speedline Lifeboat crew by Brianaro Sub-Lieutenant   Posted: 6 months ago
Does anyone know where I can buy Speedline 1:17 Lifeboat crew or does anyone have any for sale. I’ve been trying to get a response from Speedline various email addresses and phone numbers for several weeks without success so I’m guessing they’ve gone out of business
