    (Naval Ship) RAF ASR 1942
    This kit is based on an RAF ASRL Boat and is formed of High Impact Styrene for you to add your own hardware and detail. Kit includes Hull/deck/superstructure/windscreen/clear gun covers/dinghy/boat stand/servo, motor mount and instructions. Approx Length 24in x 7in 1/35th scale. HSL100 Type 2 High Speed Launch 63 feet 21.5 tons 39 Knots 1941 built by The British Power Boat Company and popularly known as the 'Whaleback' as the cabin looks like a whale diving. The craft operating in the North Sea / English Channel. Their armament consisted of any weapon which the crew could find, they started with a single 303 in each ball turret and progressed to twin 303's (Motor: 2860 4050kv) (ESC: China water cooled 60A) (8/10)
    (Fire Boat) RAF Fireboat (vintage) Aero
    Ebay job Β£50 Old Vintage Aero kit 34in Fire boat needing a lot of attention, with delaminating plywood, old glue, old glow-plug engine mounts with electric conversion, and after removing a metal shield I discover an vintage (1970,s Ripmax Bullet 30 Motor the dogs bollocks of electric racing of its time capable of running 24v at 15A. 300W for a brushed motor. Started by revamp rear pit by lowering servo and rudder and building sub deck, storage lockers, tow hook and ladders. Remount the motor with an aluminium mount with custom screw positions. Block windows with 1mm ply. Foam front half of hull to make unsinkable. Make centre decking area. Repair and build up on cabin roofs and walls to centre deck. Rewire add ESC and servo. Remove broken and unusable fittings such as large vents, some missing unable to match again. Problems with old gloss paint crazing the modern spay paints. Build some fittings eg Water cannons, life belts, Build new battery trays, Painting the boat now in progress as of 20/04/2018 Boat has be roughly painted but is not finished, as fittings are now required, added a RC system an gave it a test run. the performance was adequate on 14.4v and great on 17.2v see latter pictures on the pond. the motor did get hot after about half hour of use. the motor is rated at 24v but I think a smaller prop will be required for that voltage. Excellent performance from a brushed motor. Added some stickers and I have now added a 12v fan and ventilation between cabins as the motor required some cooling and was in a sealed compartment. (Motor: Bullet 30) (ESC: 24v 15A Electronize) (9/10)
    (Pleasure Craft) Jet Boat
    Modified from standard 360 motor to a brushless 20mm motor this was my first brushless conversion back in 2013. (Motor: 20mm) (4/10)
    (Racing Boat) WL 915
    WL 915 ready to run Brushless 2.4GHz RTR Electric RC Speed Boat. This RC boat is capable of reaching speeds up to 25MPH and anti-capsizing technology? The flood chamber in this boat causes the boat to struggle to get up on the plane, in the end I filled it with foam, and put in a new rudder offset to the right, it now goes well, and I haven't flipped it yet! Features: β€’Electric Powered β€’Capable Of Up To 25MPH? β€’2.4GHz Transmitter β€’11.1V 1200mAh LiPo Rechargeable Battery β€’Balance Charger Specifications: β€’Length: 17.25 inches β€’Width: 6.8 inches β€’Height: 4.7 inches I will be modifying this little boat as it has a few annoying problems they are: 1. The flood chamber fills quickly and once full hampers the boat in accelerating and getting on the plane. 2. You cannot run the boat slowly as the flood chamber fills 3. The self righting is not 100 percent reliable. 4. Binding is initially difficult Mods a. Replace cabin so boat lies flat when inverted. so able to use rudder extension to steer when upside-down. b. Racing rudder side position out of prop-wash and aids torque effects. c. Fill float chamber with foam so gets on the plane quickly. d. Cut down rudder as too long (95mm) to 65mm. The cabin will be finished and painted properly after testing. On testing the rudder was reduced and performed well once it got going but still have problems getting it up on a plan it feel this could be a balance issue, needs more mass at the stern. (Motor: outrunner) (ESC: unknown) (5/10)
    (Racing Boat) NDQ Modified

Boat currently pulls enough to get hot motors on 3s (240W total). (Motor: BL 2845 2600kv) (ESC: 30A gerneric) (9/10)
    (Fire Boat) Grimmershorn II
    The Motor vessel 'Grimmershorn' was built in 1956/57 by Hansa Stahlund Schiffbau GmbH at Koln-Deutz for the Waterways and Shipping Administration at Cuxhaven.Her Daimler-Benz four stroke diesel engine had an output of 500hp. permitting a speed of 11.5 knots. The model hull and deck are vacuum formed ABS, timber work of precision cut ply, 2 full size plan sheets and a construction manual along with a fittings pack complete this kit. Technical Data Scale: 1:20 Length: 1038mm Beam 305mm The Grimmershorn was the second major kit I purchased from a model shop on the outskirts of Harlow in Essex back in the 1980s. The Krik kit is still produced and sold today. My build was a slow and lost enthusiasm so after completing the hull, deck, motor and bow thruster installation I gave the boat to my father in-law who completed the superstructure and sailed the boat for a while, eventually the boat was given back to me when the father in-law moved house. I then repaired the rudder, added a moving radar, a adjustable water cannon and pump also various extra fittings such as a detailed life raft and crane, buoys and captain figure. thus renamed the boat as Grimmershorn II a Search and rescue fire boat. (Motor: 950) (ESC: 15A 24v) (5/10)
    (Racing Boat) Interceptor
    Zoom 1 (Interceptor) Mono boat. Built from a Glassfibre hull, brought on Ebay for Β£35 the hull is a slim mono racing type with a self-righting side cabin it runs a 1400W 14V 2958 4200KV Brushless Motor and 29-S Water Cooling Jacket with additional air cooling fan. I did not want to use a flexi drive as high maintenance and prone to failure so the shaft runs via two universal joint one at each end. the propeller is a 38mm copper alloy The ESC is a 200A and water cooled the twin rudders supply separate water one for the motor and one for the ESC. The rudder are positioned to reduce prop-walk and are hinged to prevent damage if hit a object in the water and ride adjustment. Turn fins and trim tabs for ride adjustment were provided by a spares kit for another boat. also foamed and added an inner sealed hatch, a rubber bump strip and safety loop. The Boat is fast and over-powered used at half throttle, may use a 7.4v lipo instead, the self righting works well. 20th April 2018 while running on 11.1v the boat stopped, no response on retrieval it was found that the manufacturers battery connector had melted and the connection lost see later pictures. the battery was made by FLOUREON and was a 35C with 5500mah capacity the 80A fuse had not blown. (Motor: 2958 watercooled) (ESC: Unknown 200A) (8/10)
    (Naval Ship) PT 109
    PT 109 The famous ww2 PT boat skippered by JF Kennedy (later to be President of the USA) This has be one of my have to have model boats and it was by luck that I found one for sale on a model boat club's web site in 2013, Β£100.00 later and a journey from Cumbria to Yorkshire and back, I had myself a ProBoat PT 109 This was a ready made RTR model when new and is 40in (1m) long, the boat needed some small repairs but after a test run I found that the running gear was noisy and on investigation discovered that both propshaft were bent and had no bearings from new, the couplings were just direct connections. So with great care I replaced both prop-shafts, propellers, coupling for two double Huco's (universal) and the single ESC by two new Aqua speed controllers and both motors with Graupner speed 600's Note I also foamed the front compartments to make it unsinkable in theroy. (Motor: Graupner 600s) (ESC: 2x Aquapower) (7/10)
    (Naval Ship) Perkasa Class
    A Malaysian Fast Patrol Boat Perkasa produced by Vosper in1966,she has 3 gas turbines engines and a speed of 54 knots, and diesels for cruising. The model was built in the 1980s but has only recently been fully powered up for planning speed, handle choppy water very well, port and starboard motors are 2x Graupner 600 7.2v and centre motor is a 700 type motor, 3 shafts run 3x 35mm propellers and it has two rudders, the guns are remote controlled (Please note the stern/rear gun is not accurate and is just a copy of the forward gun Bofors 40mm and not the 20mm Oerlikon. Search lights, radar, running lights all work the 3xESCs are a cheap China ones that do the job but need to go to neutral before going in reverse, just use self centring joy sticks on the transmitter. (Motor: 2x 600 + 1x 700 type) (ESC: China) (8/10)
    (Naval Ship) CB90
    Scratch built at 12th scale from pictures and profiles of the original boat, hope to upgrade batteries to 11.1v lipo.

    Hi, Have added two brushless motors prop shafts etc, twin rudders as per original boat and also a cabin roof.

    Did a test run (sorry no pics) but she was great, predictable and stable in rough conditions.

    This Boat is a bit experimental the main goals where for it to be light in weight, and also a more correct hull shape, also to keep cost to a minimum and as scale as practically possible.

    To answer the question about not using one single skin, is that ply will not bend in two directions, the sides of the hull have curves to them, the length of the hull is also curved, especially the bow but also curves to a narrower stern/ transom.

    The best way to skin the boat is by 60 degree planking in two alternating layers but this would make the hull too heavy for me to transport, due to back problems.

    I have by luck, not judgement acquired a second hand 'Nirvana' Yacht, it is a sloop rigged craft that was only sold in America and retailed between $250 and $350 according to the revision version and the year brought.

    This was a bit of a surprise to me as I only paid Β£10 for it.

    The Nirvana RC Sailboat was first produced by Megatech in 2002. and is 32in long and the hull& deck are ABS plastic.

    The quality of the boat is unmatched in the price range, with such features as a lead keel ballast, superior polyester sails that won't mildew, stretch or tear, and fittings that make the boat a dream to sail. The mast and booms are made of carbon reinforced composite that is light and very strong.

    The Boat hull is in sound condition just a few scratches, there is a hairline crack in the mast area, no radio gear at all. and sails are usable but really need replacing.

    Installed the three out-runner motors, I hope I never have to replace them.

    They have rubber mounting washers and nylock nuts and spring washers in M3.

    They are about half inch apart took a few hours to install with full access as currently boat has not been skinned.

    I hope to add small fans to the prop hubs to keep them cool

    Now have received the rudders and water scoops. they will be installed after the bottom skins are on.

    Very nice boat I am in the process of restoring one myself.
    Could you reduce the size of the rudder, may increase straight line speed, and calm the turns.

    After all this chit chat I bet 'Westquay' will say by the way the propeller was made of stainless steel.

    Cheers Roy.

    "Downside to metal props is the fact they need to be balanced and sharpened, which is a lot of work and not without health issues due to the beryllium used in some brass alloys. Berillium is highly toxic, read up on the stuff and take the appropriate measures."

    Funny how this web site completely destroys any form of formatting (layout) you put in.

    Any tips on formatting.

    see picture of grab, and of original format.

    Thanks Roy

    Hi Please be careful with copper/brass alloy propellers as they often contain beryllium which is is highly toxic, read about the dangers and take the appropriate safety precautions.
    Before you work on these propellers, such as balancing, sanding, polishing or repairing.

    Thanks to ChrisF I am able to rebuild the boat with a different superstructure, but using the Huntsman 31 hull, he informed me of a Sport version of the 31 that had similar cabin as the 28.

    With some investigation.

    The New boat will now be '2017 Huntsman 31 Cockpit', this is a modern remake of the original design by a new setup.

    The boat was free but I gave a small donation to the club,(Darlington & District Model Boat Club).

    Started by removing all hardware, motor mounts, prop shaft, rudder, water-scoops and outlets.

    Next fill the holes I have made, remove some excess wood.
    roughly sand down hull.

    Foam bow area, and glue crack in deck.

    Find a lot of damage to the fibreglass hull, large chips out of the gel coat and associated stress fractures, and other spider web cracks.

    Drimmel all crack lines and open up chips and dents, then fill with a filler. an experimental mix of P38 and Araldite, hope it works.

    Start planning drive options I have a number of items that I have brought and not used that will be put in this boat, otherwise they may never find a home.

    last picture shows drive option to use up components.
