Billings Calypso by deepdiver Sub-Lieutenant   Posted: 1 month ago
Hi I have a Calypso that I got off one of our members, and it has two 545 motors so far I have not taken her out onto the water. Hope that this is of some help. Fred

Hi One and All Just a quick note, Brightwork has sent me some photo's of the Tsekoa, and they have answered some of the questions that I have had with regards to the wheelhouse and the deck fittings. THANK you Brightwork. All the best Fred

Tsekoa 2 by deepdiver Sub-Lieutenant   Posted: 3 months ago
Hi One and All Just a quick up date on my rebuild, as you see I have still been working on the wheel house. I have made some mistakes in places as you can see, and the black sections are were I have run out of white card. As they say onward and upward. All the best Fred

Tsekoa 2 by deepdiver Sub-Lieutenant   Posted: 4 months ago
Hi Yes Dave M the Tsekoa is a nice boat, as for a log of my repairs I feel that it would be out of my league after reading some of the log's on this site, Marky yes you are right it is slowly slowly as I am trying to do a min of one hour a day on her. I will post some photo's of my work as I go along. All the best Fred

Tsekoa 2 by deepdiver Sub-Lieutenant   Posted: 4 months ago
Hi One and All I have started to rebuild my Tsekoa 2 after it was damaged in the move, I have only had her for 21years.

Hi I am sorry to say that I do not have what you are looking for, but I do have a new Sanwa RD 8000 with RX, I was into Sub's and like your self my TX just gave up on me so I went out and got the Sanwa took it out of it's box tried it out and it worked fine then found the TX would not fit into my Sub with out moving all the internals so I called it a day with Sub's, if you are interested I am looking for £100 for the RX -TX x 2, Fred

1960 Keil Kraft catalogue. by deepdiver Sub-Lieutenant   Posted: 6 months ago
I used to look forward to this every year, I think that 1964 would have been the last one that I would have got, as in September of that year I got my first motorbike so for the next few years models was the last thing on my mind.

RAF fIRE TENDER MAST DETAILS ?? by deepdiver Sub-Lieutenant   Posted: 7 months ago
Yes I went and did it again (Would make a great song) same size as your's, and need a lot of TLT to get up to shape for the water, it did have an I/C in at some time but was removed alone with all the running gear, when I can I will post some photo's. Fred

Hello by deepdiver Sub-Lieutenant   Posted: 8 months ago
Hi First sorry that I have not made myself known before, bad insight on me and thank you for the add. O.K I have now left work and joined the ranks of the G.O.M. I have been modeling boat's (Sub's) for some time, mainly the WW2 "T" class, some time back I got Brian of Mobile Model Marine to let me have the first Lady "T" hull as I took a liking of the mock up that he had on his stand, and from that I have now moved onto tug's from the early 1900's.👍 My other love's other than my Wife are my Ducati 900ssie, and my SLK.😎 I am also a member of the Swiss Cottage MBC, and I do hope that in time I will meet up with some of you at the show.s All the best Fred

R.A.F. Fire/Crash Tender by deepdiver Sub-Lieutenant   Posted: 8 months ago
I parched this model of an R.A.F. Fire/Cash Tender as an impulse buy, with the idea of restoring her, I am only selling due to me having started the Mobile Marine Lady “T” She is 34 1/2 inches in length and 10 inches in beam, comes with an E.S.C and Electric motor (may benefit from a brushless set up), there are some fittings but you would need to locate replacements. I am asking £30.00 and I would like to see her go to some one that has the time to put into restoring her to her best. Due to the size and weight it would be best to collect this boat. I am just outside Brighton Sussex Fred (Deep Diver)
