Sail arms by edmet Petty Officer   Posted: 6 years ago
Hi... thanks for that. We will have to make It a token genny I guess and then practice the timing and, as you say, let the wind take It round the mast. It Is going to be Interesting when we launch but thanks again.

Sail arms by edmet Petty Officer   Posted: 6 years ago
Hi.. I am building a model of a yacht we used to sail. (A Purbrook Rossiter Shelduck) The model Is 37" long with a beam of 13" Mast will be 48" and a large main sail. We are trying to keep It as authentic as possible and woud like to use a genoa with no boom. This creates problems with the sail arm servo. I would be very grateful for any help.

Copying pictures from the site by edmet Petty Officer   Posted: 6 years ago
Hi... I am building an RAF Crash Tender and being new to this sort of modelling tried to copy some photographs from the site to act as a guide. Unfortunatly they are very small and therefore of little use. Is there a way I can get larger pictures please. I have a Kingston hull. Thanks In anticipation
