Bristol pilot cutter mascotte by Donnieboy Admiral   Posted: 7 hours ago
I really like the job you did on the woodwork.Looks great.Nice job on the rudder too.

Steam Generator! by Donnieboy Admiral   Posted: 2 days ago
Nice steam generator.Looks like it will work to your satisfaction.It will look great on the water.

1:30 scale tug boat by Donnieboy Admiral   Posted: 2 days ago
Nice job Garth.Good to work on something while displaying at a show.Passes the time.

Bristol pilot cutter mascotte by Donnieboy Admiral   Posted: 3 days ago
Great job on the paint.Must be nice to be able to paint outside.We're still waiting for the snow to disappear.We are only at 5 degrees.Lovely job.Can't wait to see it finished.

H.M.S. BRAVE BORDERER by Donnieboy Admiral   Posted: 3 days ago
Nice installation of the electrics.Easy access.It might be better to plan the water cooling right now just in case something gets in the way.

Bristol pilot cutter mascotte by Donnieboy Admiral   Posted: 4 days ago
You're doing a good job.Huge learning curve.Lots of patience.I enjoy watching the build.

firefly by Donnieboy Admiral   Posted: 4 days ago
The hobby also helps us to get back on track.Lovely model.

Perkasa by Donnieboy Admiral   Posted: 6 days ago
Nice video.I like your sailing location.Especially liked seeing the Perkasa following the lead boat.Both are running good.

Wrong Side! by Donnieboy Admiral   Posted: 7 days ago
As was said,nice finish.We do make mistakes.As they say we learn by our mistakes.Back to the drawing board.

Bits n pieces arrived / Aft Deck Mk 2 built ;-) by Donnieboy Admiral   Posted: 8 days ago
Doug,my thoughts are that a renovation is as close to a build you can get.It's done with love.We can still buy E-Z connectors here in Toronto.Let me know when you need some.

Triton by Donnieboy Admiral   Posted: 8 days ago
Nice area to sail your boats.Is it recent that you were able to sail? Right now we have ice pellets and freezing rain coming down.

Bits n pieces arrived / Aft Deck Mk 2 built ;-) by Donnieboy Admiral   Posted: 8 days ago
E-Z connectors are the way to go.I use them all the time.Adjustments are easy to do.You don't have to pull everything apart.I really like the way your build is going.Finish is excellent.

SEA JET EVOLUTION by Donnieboy Admiral   Posted: 12 days ago
Nice to see modified scooter running.Excellent running.Realistic speed.

Update on the Tug Brooklyn! by Donnieboy Admiral   Posted: 12 days ago
Great work.It shows you take your time with the detail.Inspiration to others to do the same.Love the beard.

Bristol pilot cutter mascotte by Donnieboy Admiral   Posted: 13 days ago
Good example.Should help a lot.Just take it slow.

SCHERSEN P 206 by Donnieboy Admiral   Posted: 14 days ago
Nice runner.Good job on the build.Nice speed on it too.

Bristol pilot cutter mascotte by Donnieboy Admiral   Posted: 15 days ago
Judging from what you have done so far the ship's boat will be of the same quality.Excellent work.

Smit Rotterdam by Donnieboy Admiral   Posted: 15 days ago
Very nice model

SYLT by Donnieboy Admiral   Posted: 15 days ago
Very nice model.Even though the water area is small it is nice to have somewhere to run.Good job.

Re: Donnieboy's Gina 2 by Donnieboy Admiral   Posted: 16 days ago
My Gina was a little tender in the water.When you get yours ready do a sail in calm weather.We had to take down the mainsail but in the wind she was still leaning and taking water on the deck.One member commented that it looked so real with the water coming out of the scuppers.No water was noticed when I brought her in to check the innards.

Re: Donnieboy's Gina 2 by Donnieboy Admiral   Posted: 16 days ago
I may get it ready for the water again but I'm refurbishing a ship for a friend of mine and powering up a model for my daughter and her husband.My Gina 2 I can take the full deck off to gain access to the innards.This is a great help.

Ready for the first test on water by Donnieboy Admiral   Posted: 16 days ago
It's nice to see that one colour suits more than one boat.Great to hear you have a chance to run the boat.Hope all goes well.We still had snow coming down today.

Smit Amsterdam by Donnieboy Admiral   Posted: 16 days ago
[Score: 8/10] Twin Propellors (4 Blade) Direct Drive to a 2-550 motors (4 Blade) Powered by Lead Acid (6v) 10Amp/h Batteries Controlled Through 50amp ESC - Comments: This is a Graupner Premium Line.I wasn't happy with the universals and plastic 3 bladed props.Replaced the universals and changed props to 4 bladed brass.Also changed the prop shaft to a threaded 4mm shaft which I happened to have in my spares.She runs a lot better now with these changes.Still to come is lighting and sound.

Micro Magic by Donnieboy Admiral   Posted: 16 days ago
[Score: 8/10] 21" Micro Magic - Comments: I aquired it from a member in our club.It came with 2 extra sails.It is a nice boat to take along especialy when you just want to relax by the pond side.Easy sailor.

Gina 2 by Donnieboy Admiral   Posted: 16 days ago
[Score: 6/10] 20" Gina 2 Single Propellor (3 Blade 20mm) Direct Drive to a Robbe 300 Slow (3 Blade) - Comments: Billings kit.I started it in the early 80's.I lost interest in it and my Dad finished it.Now the boat is retired to being a static model.It does have operating lights installed.

Carol Moran by Donnieboy Admiral   Posted: 16 days ago
[Score: 9/10] 18" Carol Moran Single Propellor (3 Blade) Direct Drive to a kv893 (3 Blade) Powered by NiMH (7.2v) 4Amp/h Batteries Controlled Through unknown ESC - Comments: Dumas kit.Runs great but the torque is trmendous.Have to offset the torque.
