    Maybe you or someone that reads this note could help me out getting in touch with โ€œSkydive130โ€. I have sent him two private messages but I havenโ€™t received any response. Maybe he just donโ€™t comunรญcate with the forum anymore?

    RodC, thank you for those pictures and all the information you provided me.
    Iโ€™m saving your pictures and text to go by when I start building my tug.
    At the moment Iโ€™m in the process of selling my home and purchasing another one, so all of my model projects are in the back burner.
    But mean while Iโ€™m watching and learning from all of you great model makers.
    I have two questions.
    Your antenna does not goes out any farther than that?
    Stays like that (short) after you cover it?
    Where can I purchase figures like that?
    Than You

    Hey guys,
    Iโ€™m about to buy this transmitter: FLYSKY FS-i6X 10CH 2.4GHz RC Transmitter Controller/W iA10B Receiver Upgrade .
    My question is:
    Will this double antenna work leaving it inside the boat or do I have to find a way to have them sticking out of the wheel house or somewhere else?

    ๐Ÿ“ How to do your own paper flags

    1. Once you know wish flag is the one you want to use, print it and trace it full page. (I use tracing paper).
    After pencil tracing the flag use a fine tip black pen and go over the traced lines and darken it where you think should be darker.
    2. After you hace achived a nice black and white image, reduce you image to the size you need acccording the the scale of your model. You will have to use the original tracing paper art to create a reverse copy.
    3. Paste up both images side to side and draw a sharp oval in the center that will represent the points where the flag gets attached to the mast. Create another copy with both flags and the ovals, this copy is the one you will fill with colors, but before you add any paint you should coat the copy with satin clear, this will make the paint flow better.
    4. After the paint, coat again with satin clear. When is dry, cut the ovals, add white glue to the back and fold. This is the time to take advantage and create the folds you like to the flag wile is still wet. Sometimes I use dowels to create the ripples.
    5. After fold and dried, create some samll holes to pass your rope through it. I do to rounds around the mast.
    You will be proud that your model flags.....Is your creation.!!

    This is my very first wood model. I started to build her long time ago but when I got to the rigging part, I came to a screeching halt do to the lack of rigging knowledge.
    After several years of being built without rigging, our cleaning lady knocked it off the base to the floor. It was a total disaster, 3 years after that, I decided to refurbished it and do the rigging with the help of this book.

    Collin, I also wish you the best when showing your great model collection.
    I love competitions and exhibitions, it brings humility to all, because there is always someone that has a better model than us.
    Down here in the other side of the pond, I use to compete many times with the IPMS shows.
    Last one (1999) won me โ€œThe Best Sail Ship Modelโ€ award with my Imai 1-70 Golden Hind.
    After the show I sold the model to a person that is an Imai models fanatic.
