    U.S.S. Melvin
    Plastic Revel model that was made into a R/C model and again I haven't run her in a while .USS Melvin was also known as the Blue Devil I think . Original kit had a system to run in circles & figure Eights so a rudder & speed control was needed
    Statenjacht
    This is a Billing kit that I built a long time ago it was a R/C model at one time but I haven't run her in years from what I have read it was the beginnings of yachts . I also didn't get the accessory kit & just carved all the fancy ornaments.
    Corona Extra
    Just had to do some think since March 2020 so started a scratch built Chris Craft Constellation . Plans came from vintage model plans . I replace motor as on it's first run motor over heated so put a 500 series motor in & I've had 2 runs with new motor & O/K touch wood
    Lethal threat two
    Original lunch box was a failure so rebuilt the cabin & add extra room for speed control & receiver
    Lethal Threat
    The model boat club I'm in ( Confederation Marine Modelers ) wanted to have some R/C boats the kids could use at some of our shows & this weekend we do a show at the Hamilton Steam museum called boats in the park . It's basically built around a pool floating noodle & were calling them Bumper Boats ๐Ÿ™„
    (Other) Baltik
    Not sure how long ago model was built . Take it to wood shows in Hamilton area . Just a static model not sure Manufacturer of model . Probably have print somewhere (5/10)
    (Other) Queen Of The Mississippi
    Another model boat that's a static model . A fellow chap I work with started it but gave up & gave it to me to finish . The paddle wheels where broken & I couldn't get around to work on her after about 6 years sitting in the basement I notice that a mouse like it as a home well after getting rid of the mice decided time to finish her . (5/10)
    (Other) Rattle Snake
    Static model of the Rattle Snake (5/10)
    (Working Vessel) Debbie 1
    This Billings model was probably one of the first R/C models I ever built the speed control is a Traxxas XL-1 2 Channel am Airtronics transmitter . I took it down to a pond at Confederation Park to test it with my girl friend turned it on but the rudder was hard over & I didn't see that the boat started going in a nice circle until it screwed itself under .I jumped in and there was only 3 feet of water & 4 feet of mud . My girlfriend ,now my wife thought I was crazy but after 42 years she still thinks I'm crazy . (ESC: Traxxass XL-1) (5/10)
    (Tug Boat) North Rock
    Got a lot of info on the Billings D.M.I. Samson tug from the members . the thing is I saw a drawing of the North Rock tug boat & thought I would rebuild the Samson & build the North Rock tug .Researched original after I painted her & found out the it was white superstructure & black hull to late (8/10)
    (Racing Boat) WTF
    I'v had this model for a long time & it has had several different drive setups lastly a outboard motor that runs quit well but is a little noise .I built it with the outboard motor as it turns real well in reverse which is a asset at the high point regatas we have . stop at a buoy then reverse out I always mess up hopefully I'll do better at our Buffalo N.Y. High Point Aug 26 2018. (Motor: Aquacraft) (ESC: Pro Boat) (5/10)
    (Working Vessel) Mudslide
    I gave myself a 10/10 as I figure if it runs well on it's maiden shake down & doesn't fill up with water or sink & goes left & right it's got to be a 10 /10 (10/10)
    (Yacht) Sea Queen
    I did a build log a few months ago & she had her pond tryouts on Nov. 9 2017 . it was a very chilly day but I always like to put a little Rum on my models before first sail & fortunately I had a little rum left over to take the chill off . I always try to put a penny in my models for the year it was built no more pennies in Canada & now it's a nickel which I could not find because of our Centennial year so used a loonie . (Motor: 12V electric) (ESC: XL5 Traxxas) (8/10)
    (Life Boat) 44 life boat
    I built the 44 several years ago & wasn't happy with her as it listed to much on port & starboard turns because the cabin was to heavy so I rebuilt the cabin with lighter plywood started running her at the pond & seems a lot better now.Still needs a little more work with fittings (ESC: pro boat) (5/10)
    (Fire Boat) Patriot
    Midwest kit with working monitor I use a Sonic Mark X pump for the water sprayer Kids love to get wet but mothers don't ! (6/10)
    (Tug Boat) Arnold.S
    This is a tug boat kit by Freedom Song Model Boat there no longer selling models I have a lot of fun running this model in small pools (6/10)
    (Pleasure Craft) Water Witch
    Found plans in a Model Boat Magazine from England The plans where down size I used 1/8 pine strips for the hull and epoxy as sealer This model was a replicate of a Scotish fishing boat converted to pleasure crafts . (9/10)
    (Fire Boat) Edward . M. Cotter
    The real fire boat is stationed in Buffalo New York . This fire boat visits Port Colborne on Lake Erie every year for Canal Days & because the model boat club I'm in sets up a display at the museum in town I decided to build a scratch build of this boat I used the prints of the Sequin Midwest tug for the hull & internet photos for details. I used the tops of Lepages glue bottle to simulate the Monitor on the decks I'm real proud of them. (Motor: Johnson) (8/10)
    (Pleasure Craft) Rubber Band
    Found this model at a yard sale it's a Sterling model dual cockpit mahogany runabout .It was in bad shape and needed to be stripped down & rebuilt & water proofed . My driver is Dale Junior I got it at the Dollar store (ESC: Pro Boat) (5/10)

    O/K everyone is right looks better with hull portholes. Long story short after I retired from Stelco 15 years ago I cleaned out my lockers. Because I was a Maintenance Electrician, I had a lot of odds & ends to take home & I also remember I had taken these small rivets home. So, they will make great portholes. The Photo with the rivets isn't finished yet the rivets will all need to be set straight on the hull .

    If you look closely, you may spot one green fake gas bottle and we can't forget that because they became torpedoes in the movie used to sink the German patrol ship.

    Thanks for all the suggestions on portholes. I also have two full plans. The model I have is the 30-inch Zee wooden kit which is a kit #NR8009 the other plan is a 34-inch plan # NR592 I think. I'll go to our neighborhood Fabric land store & look for some gourmets to use as portholes. Because it's a wooden kit, most of the structural parts can be made with plastic or wood. The 34-inch had two props. The plan method of build shows a drawing that shows two props.

    Because I don't think my friend that I got this model from has the fitting kit I have decided to fill in the port holes. I did a little searching online & portholes are too expensive & I can't find plastic ones online either. So today I decided to make the Funnel from some scrap wood & that's the fun with building model boats It's not the greatest looking funnel, but I made it to look like the plans. I did a decent job on it, I think. A fitting kit would be nice but most of the fittings can be handmade. Filled in porthole holes also.

    I just can't stop myself Our club had a swap & sell meeting on Tuesday And I spotted this uncompleted tug the Zwarte Zee for $ 30 Canadian no tax. She is missing a lot of parts & may take a while to build .The first thing I thought about was all the port holes that it will need . Buy them or maybe use something else to fill the holes . The first thing I started was the stern area so put a plastic plate over the hole & I'll need to have a way to get to the rudder area.

    Just a little update on my R/C project of the 16 inch African Queen .It works motor runs rudder turns right way also still a lot of fine tuning inside hull & a bath tube test needed but I'm confident she will sail in a tiny pond one day.P/S put a little video on Media Gallery just to prove it works ! ๐Ÿ˜†.

    Today here in southern Ontario fall weather today rain & a little snow so worked on African Queen got lucky ask a fellow in our club if he had a small prop & stuffing box .He said he would look & if he found anything he would bring it to our March Club Meeting . I was pleasantly suprised as he found one . A model boat club is great as we can get things that other members may have . The only way to put motor in was to build up the hull bottom then make a pit to put motor in & away we go . It's a little crude but a little elbow grease will fix that up .

    My son gave me a flat bottom sail boat that he found on the street on garbage day . I wondered how I would fix it as the masts had been broken off it sat on the work bench for about 6 months finally decided to make a R/C African Queen out of this flat bottom sail boat .It's only 14 inch's so to put all the electronics in it will be a bit of challange ! The prop & rudder will have to be placed first so thats a beginning . Built a fake boiler & a fake steam engine from internet photo's I think there not to shabby .

    I can't find my original built Blog. It's been a while since I posted anything & we all know why . With all the stuff happening right now had to get my mind of it and finish up the Dumas U.S. Army 74' ST Tug. It's always a task to find a good spot for a on off switch so I had some P/B switch's & the model had imitation man hole covers so I glued a switch under the deck and glued top of cover onto switch Wala done . We just need some warm weather and some open water for a tug boat run. maybe by end of May as Snow on the way Friday & Saturday . I find that the 2300 MAH 1.2 volt NIMH rechargeable battery's that can be put in a 6 holder battery box for 7.2 Volt battery pack work well for small model boats good running time also .

    Haven't posted in a while was waiting on a 1/72 scale 40mm Bofors gun from e-bay & I found a 1/76 scale model kit 40mm gun , truck & tractor . Haven't built a plastic model in years & the parts on a 1/76 scale model are real tiny & If a part falls on the floor it's a real challenge to find it . My little R/C model is scratch so a lot of thought needs to go into placement of switch's ,servos, speed controls , battery's , receivers ,etc. Still waiting on stanchions that I order from a hobby store in California placed order Jan.11 2022 arrived in Canada Jan.25 2022 & is sitting in Canada customs or maybe it has been at Canada Post & not delivered yet or maybe my neighbor has it . My model isn't great but it's a good way to pass time in this day & age .

    Good Morning to all & in 16 Hours it will be 2022 so every one Have a Happy New Year & stay safe out there. Did a little work on my build blog & have decided to rename model H.M.S.Sabre . She is 18 inch's in length & will have a Graupner Speed 600 - 7.2 volt . I also upgraded the stuffing box & motor shaft to a 4mm . Raised the cabin 1/4 inch & put the 2 doorways in .It's a little crude but will get better as time goes by I hope .I will try to use 1.2 volt rechargeable batteries in a 6 pack holder for 7.2 volts with 2300 milli. amp. hr. rating.

    I know the builder of the great looking H.M.S. Scimitar He is a also a great builder I've seen that model in action this summer & mention to Rowen that I'd like to build one it has been on my mind for a while because I had a Toys r Us plastic model speed boat the I found & didn't like . So long story short started to build a imitation H.M.S. Scimitar . After seeing the finished photo's I had a better look of it so started the boat build .Mine will not be anything like Rowen's & she won't be as fast but out in the water it may look O/K Hope everyone had a Merry Christmas & Every One a Happy New year .

    Haven't posted progress in a while . I was upset with kit hardware for motor shaft & prop kit came with a 1/8 prop shaft & a 2 blade nylon propeller that look a wee bit silly . So removed propeller shaft & installed a 4mm shaft & stuffing boxtube had a 40 mm 3 blade propeller & changed the motor shaft coupling to a flex unit & installed the rudder servo too .Next time I have a bath I will be doing sea trials for model weight distribution.
