105ft Motor Minesweeper by Donnieboy Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 19 days ago
Great job.Looks like with the 3D printer you will have the boat finished a lot quicker than I can.Nice to be able to use modern technology for your build.The details so far look good.Will look forward to more details being added.

ASR 64 ft RNZAF HSL W1. R/C vid 3 by Donnieboy Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 22 days ago

MV Rhapsody by Donnieboy Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 1 month ago
Nice job.Especially when you have the real boat to take the measurements.Then you know it is right.

Good to be aboard by Donnieboy Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 1 month ago
One thing about the springer,you are not restricted to on idea about the superstructer.Let your imagine set the theme.

Check out Hobby King

Good to be aboard by Donnieboy Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 1 month ago
Welcome aboard.There is a lot of help on this site.Enjoy yourself building your Springer Tug.

Now Coating and Matting by Donnieboy Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 1 month ago
After the application of fibreglass or matting i usually put on a second coat of EZ-Cote.After drying lightly sand.Overlaps I find easy to level up with another coat of EZ-Cote.I have been using the same bottle for 3 years.That stuff really stretches.All the wrong size fittings can always be used on other projects or modify them to suit yours.

"IMARA" by Donnieboy Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 1 month ago
great job on the model.Runs nice too.Nice to see lots of lights.Will look great at night.BTW anybody check to see if the Canada geese had their passports.

"IMARA" by Donnieboy Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 1 month ago
Great job.Nice looking and running model.

keel/hull info by Donnieboy Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 2 months ago
The Schottel drives rotate so you don't need rudders.Enjoy your build.

Launch ELAINE, by Donnieboy Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 2 months ago
Very interesting.It looks like that assembly operates the Kitchen rudder.For reverse the blades close forming a cup behind the prop.

Modav Huntsman 31 by Donnieboy Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 2 months ago
Great job.Running nice on modern upgrade.

Running Lights Completed! by Donnieboy Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 2 months ago
GREAT JOB.A Lot of useful hints in following your blog.I have passed along info on your construction to my friend.He is planning to move to the Phillipines taking his Brooklyn kit with him.Looks like I won't be making a Brooklyn.Love to see yours on the water.

Complete! by Donnieboy Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 2 months ago
Great job.Looks really good.Will be nice to see your future builds.

Dumas USS Crockett by Donnieboy Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 2 months ago
Boat looked great.The boat ran just fine.Not too much over scale speed.It's good to have a little more speed to avert obstacles,especially oyher boats that don't know where they are.

Trip to the lake by Donnieboy Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 2 months 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 months 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: 2 months 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: 2 months 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: 2 months ago
The wheelhouse is really coming together.Nice job.Will look great when finished.

HMS Hood by Donnieboy Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 2 months ago
As had been said,great details.Wonderful sailing characteristics.Nature cooperated providing a realistic sea.

Range Safety Launch? by Donnieboy Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 2 months 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: 2 months ago
That is going to be a beautiful build.It will be nice to see it finished.

SLOTH by Donnieboy Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 2 months 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: 2 months 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: 2 months 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: 2 months 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.
