Trip to the lake by Donnieboy Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 9 hours ago
EmilyPIII looks really good on the water.Nice job.Emily must have been excited running her namesake.Looks like a nice calm day to run.

Forward Ladder! by Donnieboy Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 2 days ago
Excellent job.I see one of my crew deserted the Jersey City for the Brooklin.You must be paying better.

Emma C Berry Schooner by Donnieboy Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 4 days ago
Nice job so far.Especially like your method of holding the boat upright while working on the topside.Looks nice and solid and sturdy.

True Balou by Donnieboy Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 4 days ago
Great job on the restoration.It will be enjoyed by your daughter for years to come.

Devils in the detail by Donnieboy Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 6 days ago
The wheelhouse is really coming together.Nice job.Will look great when finished.

HMS Hood by Donnieboy Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 6 days ago
As had been said,great details.Wonderful sailing characteristics.Nature cooperated providing a realistic sea.

Range Safety Launch? by Donnieboy Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 10 days ago
If the boat has 2 rudders I usually install the props-clockwise on the starboard side and counter clockwise on the port side. If the boat has a single rudder-clockwise on port and counter clockwise on starboard.I find it produces better control when you reverse.

Deans Robert E. Perry Libertyship by Donnieboy Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 11 days ago
That is going to be a beautiful build.It will be nice to see it finished.

SLOTH by Donnieboy Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 11 days ago
It's amazing that every club I've seen so far has problem with weeds.we use to have access to a reflecting pool with no weeds at a civic centre,But they changed the rules.Any water deeper than 2inches required a life guard be posted.When people in the condos saw us down at the water they would bring their children down to watch the boats in the water.At the end of the night they would thank us for entertaining their children.All our members enjoyed doing this.City politics is a b___h.

Winnipeg Model Boat Club by Donnieboy Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 11 days ago
It's nice to see a model boat club being organized.To bad we are not closer to each other.My son in laws mother lives north of there.If we ever get there I will be contact with you.

Range Safety Launch? by Donnieboy Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 11 days ago
The most beautiful thing about it there is no fumes that your signifigant other can complain about.It can be used indoors even in the winter even when the furnace is running.It also dries very fast so you can carry on with the next step to finish your fabulous model to show us your results.

Range Safety Launch? by Donnieboy Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 11 days ago
Eze-Coat Is fabulous stuff to use.It is thin enough to run into any crack in hull and seal it up.I also use it to fibreglass hulls.No fuss no mess.

Cabin/Superstructure by Donnieboy Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 13 days ago
It will be a lovely boat.I like your planking of the deck.

The Crew(s)!! by Donnieboy Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 16 days ago
Doug the 3s lipo looks like it is enough for the Jessica.Looks like she's running great.Maybe a 4s lipo will put her in for trying for a world record.She runs great.Kudos. Donnie

Detailing continues! by Donnieboy Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 16 days ago
Nice job.Looks good.Love to see the finished product.

The Crew(s)!! by Donnieboy Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 16 days ago
Doug,good choice.When you get Jessica in the water,like to see them chasing another boat.I guess he will pull over quickly.

Final Finishing before Sea trials ;-) by Donnieboy Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 18 days ago
If figtree7nts crews his tug with them he may get more requests to tow in more stalled boats on the water.Good choice.Totally different.

Final Finishing before Sea trials ;-) by Donnieboy Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 18 days ago
For people to occupy the cockpit I usually peruse the toy section of the Dollar store.Then modify them with Milliput.I don't know if you have any comparable store over there.It's a lot less expensive than the hobby shops.The other bits and pieces I just have to remember what cabinet and drawer they are in.

Final Finishing before Sea trials ;-) by Donnieboy Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 18 days ago
Excellant paint job.What a great shine.You won't lose sight of her on the water.

Five windows left! by Donnieboy Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 30 days ago
Tamiya tape is great stuff.Good job.I have used it for taping off water lines and anything else that needed it.Are you also doing a little weathering as you go along.I noticed some colouring on the bottom structure.

Mk2 RTTL 2771 by Donnieboy Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 1 month ago
Great job on the model.Pictures show it is a good runner.

Steam Boats by Donnieboy Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 1 month ago
Lovely workmanship on all the steamers.Enjoyed watching the video.Nice area to float your boats.Especially like the paddle steamer.

vintage yacht (Victoria) by Donnieboy Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 1 month ago
With the care you are taking it shows you enjoy this restoration you have taken on.I enjoy following all the restorations that are going on.It saves a lot of boats from just going into the bin.Carry on,it will be a beautiful job.

Fun Run by Donnieboy Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 1 month ago
Enjoyable day.Light rain but lovely weather.Members from Kawartha Marine Modellers,Confederation Marine Modellers and Metro Marine Modellers attended.Wide variety of boats.Had BBQ afterwards.There is a couple of pictures of Springer tugs for people to have an idea what to do to theirs.

Wheels by Donnieboy Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 2 months ago
Nice job on the paddle wheels.They look great.

Sea Queen by Donnieboy Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 2 months ago
Nice job on the boats.Lovely collection.Well done.

Mini Olympus gearbox by Donnieboy Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 2 months ago
Doug,I have been following your posts.I have learned quite a lot from them.Too bad you are not here in Canada.I'm always trying to get more people to access the model boat website to gain more info on problems they may have.Also to see what other modellers are achieving.Keep up the good work,it is very much appreciated.

17-28 Torbay Severn Lifeboat by Donnieboy Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 3 months ago
Good job on the boat.Runs nice.Great sailing area you have.

Bristol pilot cutter mascotte by Donnieboy Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 3 months ago
I find that when the boat is nearing completion I don't always contemplate that there is something I haven't thought through.Just want to get the boat finished and on the water. You're doing a fabulous job on this boat.Waiting to see it on the water.I have been following the construction.Excellant workmanship.

Sea Scout 'Jessica' Sea Trial - at last! by Donnieboy Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 3 months ago
'Jessica is running really good.Thanks for putting all the info in the post.I'm sure it will be a lot of help to other modellers.Especially me.Good job on the restoration.
