HMS Blue Rover and HMS Manchester by figtree7nts Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 12 days ago
As a Master Helmsmen, this brings back memories.... Thanks for sharing!

Albion by figtree7nts Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 29 days ago
OK, I've got to admit, I thought I read they where Lego! Now I know there not. Still they look very good!

Albion by figtree7nts Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 29 days ago
I've got to say, those figures look great! Looks like a happy crew! Never seen Lego crew like that before. I've got to keep my eye out for such a crew!

Twin Esc/Mixer by figtree7nts Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 1 month ago
NPJ Take your time and read and study the instruction. There is no need to rush! If you have any questions. Feel free to ask as many as you need....

Twin Esc/Mixer by figtree7nts Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 1 month ago
I believe the string that comes with the Southampton is a tad bit thin also flat! That's why I used the thicker string. RNinMunich My tug came with brand new tires as well! I know what you mean about the balding tires.... They look better for realism, but who has time to ware down a tiny tire.....😜

Twin Esc/Mixer by figtree7nts Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 1 month ago
Maybe you can loop the string like I did!

Twin Esc/Mixer by figtree7nts Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 1 month ago
Hi NPJ I took and ran white thread through the holes that are on the tires. Then made a knot on the inside of the bulwark (inner sides) that's it.

Twin Esc/Mixer by figtree7nts Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 1 month ago
Yes, How did you know! We're constantly arguing over who gets to use it next!

Twin Esc/Mixer by figtree7nts Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 1 month ago
ONLY REMOVE THE FERRITE COILS IF YOUR GOING TO USE 2.4GHZ. I found that the Ferrite Coils Interfered with the RC System!

Twin Esc/Mixer by figtree7nts Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 1 month ago
Hi NPJ I have the Southampton also. which I repainted and relabeled. my Southampton came with 27Mhz! But I converted it to 2.4Ghz. I see your going to use a P94 for independent motor control! you see the red wire unsolder it! now take the ferrite coils (Black Barrels) and unsolder them as well! then solder leads to each tab on the motors. you should now be able to connect the motors to your P94...

Re Boat Harbour entries by figtree7nts Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 1 month ago
Hi Dave M I love the Idea of posting a topic in the Forum! Maybe we can write the instructions. on how to upload and post pictures in the Harbour Entries even other areas of the Website. I look forward to reading such a topic. Ed

Re Boat Harbour entries by figtree7nts Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 1 month ago
Ok Dave M, I agree with you! I just thought maybe the members would start to post with picture of their boats attached! Oh well never mind, I see your point.

Re Boat Harbour entries by figtree7nts Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 1 month ago
Hi Doug, Not sure why people are posting Harbour Entries without photos! Maybe they don't know any better! It should be a requirement to have a picture before you can post to Harbour Entries. I'm looking into having it as a requirement. must bring this up to the attention of Fireboat....

Tools by figtree7nts Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 1 month ago
It brings back memories, I remember using one about 30 yrs ago.

Re Boat Harbour entries by figtree7nts Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 1 month ago
Greetings to all Members, Please note wait to post in boat harbor entries, until you have a picture to go along with your Boat entry! Members love to see what Boat is being spoken about....

Albion by figtree7nts Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 3 months ago
Where ever did you find crew members For the Southampton? I sure could use a Crew for mine!

There goes her insurance rates, right through the roof! By the way does she come with plenty of life vest? Sure you'll have it all figured out, before the next Maiden Voyage...👍

1:50 figures by figtree7nts Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 4 months ago
Hi Liam, I just noticed your thread about 1:50 scale figures! I use these guys on my tugs! mine are 1:32. Maybe you can repaint to what your needs are. http://www.cornwallmodelboats.co.uk/acatalog/graupner_crew.h...

Fairplay X - Plastic Magic! :-) by figtree7nts Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 6 months ago
OK, here is Serenity on my workbench! I told you the workbench is a mess. My other boats are on a table I found while taking my daily walk! the last picture is of my Barges. I've got one last Barge to spray.... My problem is if I tidy up, I'll misplace my things! Oh, and my area of toys! Believe it or not. I have found each and every toy I have on the dresser... Except for the Controllers.... And my Volere.
