    (Life Boat) Blue peter 7
    Recently managed to purchase a stored non built secondhand kit, being a speedline model, should be a great build too (5/10)
    (Life Boat) Shannon Class Lifeboat
    Just bought this secondhand, needs a stripdown and better fuller rebuild. Unknown number or name yet, as original fullsize is yet to be put in to service in 2020, but want to be ready for when it does to attend the station hopefully. (Motor: water jet) (ESC: turnigy) (5/10)
    (Racing Boat) Hornet F1 Tunnel
    Yet another secondhand purchase. fitted with a 2400kv brushless, rated for 11.1v lipo. hopefully should go well, but need to test its handling abilities before any mods are carried out. 2/3/13. Now managed to properly test the boat out, it goes quite well, but think is can let a bit more speed out. will experiment a little more with some different props and outboard setting angles. (9/10)
    (Pleasure Craft) Traxxas Chaparral Villain 4
    Another "fleabay" goodie, bought for the price of a bag of chips with all the electrics missing, but obtained at a good price from a Traxxas dealer in the States. (Motor: Traxxas 12 turn) (8/10)
    (Yacht) Amy G
    Thunder Tiger, Victoria yacht. "winter project" Yacht has now been tested out on the water and its a flyer ! Absolutely superb, would reccomend to anyone wanting their first yacht, even in kit form. 10/10. (Motor: wind power) (ESC: acoms e/c) (5/10)
    (Naval Ship) S Boat 1/35th Scale
    Another ebay purchase, new/part built, but ripe for r/c conversion, which I will be doing shortly, once all the necessary parts are sourced. motors due to hull widht will now be 480's with 2:1 gear reduction units, driving 30mm props (Motor: AP 480's [x3]) (ESC: Tornado) (5/10)
    (Racing Boat) Koyosho Jetstream 800
    Just arrived in post today, C/O ebay! bought as a "non runner", but the hull was too tempting to miss out on. Going to be a full refurb job, all the drivetrain has been removed for refurb and clean/greasing, then will be refitted to run original style geared motor, just to keep it "period" so to speak. Paintwise? I fancy MartinI racing colours. 29/9/12.As you can now see, I decided upon the MartinI colour scheme. (Motor: Koyosho Le Mans 360St) (10/10)
    (Racing Boat) F1 Hobby King Tunnel hull racer.
    Purchased 2nd hand [yet again], bargain price with a blown esc, replaced from bench stock. Cracking paint finish by previous owner, all clear coated over graphics, so no risk of water peeling of decals.Now its tested, it runs to approximately 30mph on calm water. (Motor: 2636 KV motor water cooled) (10/10)
    (Racing Boat) Kyosho Wave Runner
    Bought secondhand with original servo on/off power switch, removed and fitted proper motor esc to give better motor performance and handling, especially when turning.After having an uprated/modified flexI drive made, I have had to replace the original brushed motor with a brushless unit. The space needed for a suitable bigger brushed motor would not fit within the confines of the original outboard cowling. So heres fingers crossed!-- An update when pool tested. [21/12/12] (Motor: Graupner 600 race) (ESC: Tornado) (10/10)
    (Naval Ship) RMAS Moorhn
    Built from a myhobby store hull and plasticard kit, Scratch built from the hull up. Twin motors powering swivel korts, bow thruster, twin operating radars, fully operating buoy maintenance crane. full operating masthead ligth system. (10/10)
    (Pleasure Craft) Robbe Sea Jet.
    Purchased secondhand, replaced speed controller and had loads of fun till original motor gave out. took 12 months to finally find a suitable replacement motor, as Robbe no longer produce/supply a 600/21 motor, they now only supply a 540 series. So after several attempts with different motors, have finally satisfied myself with a speed 600 race unit. Goes ok on 7.2v, bit nippier on 8.4v, but hold on to your hat and try runnin' 11.1v lipo ! it behaves just like the real thing on smooth water, but be prepared to shift the battery forward for rough/choppy water, so it can still let the semI surface props bite properly. 27/7/12. Have now opted for 11.1v 2200mahr lipo and it goes like stink ! What an absolute flyer, people keep coming up to me and asking what size brushless motor Ive fitted, its that quick. (Motor: Graupner speed 600 race) (ESC: m troniks) (10/10)
    (Racing Boat) Cen Aqua
    secondhand boat purchase, only had the prop left inside it. Fitted 2075kv brushless motor, 200 amp esc and will run with twin 7.4v lipo's. just awaiting my pilots license to arrive in the post before sea trials begin (5/10)
    (Life Boat) 12-26 Mersey Class Lifeboat
    Models by Design hull kit and scratch build. under construction [see build thread], being built as replica to Barmouth Boat [currently in service 12-26]. (Motor: 900 size [x2]) (ESC: action electronics) (10/10)
    (Working Vessel) Egrete - Rhine Pusher tug
    model boats plan and flat pack styrene scratch build boat. working lights and elevating bridge. (ESC: m troniks) (10/10)
    (Pleasure Craft) salina
    refurbed secondhand boat, handles a treat, turns and planes really nice once I added some trim tabs (Motor: 555 motors) (ESC: M troniks) (8/10)
    (Naval Ship) PT 596
    converted to r/c from italerI kit. total fun and handles superbly. (Motor: speed 400 x 3) (ESC: m troniks) (10/10)
    (Tug Boat) Sun Tug MK25
    Built and converted from a Lesro kit from new. added extra detailling from original photo's and by talking to a couple of retired workers off the boat (Motor: Decaperm) (10/10)
    (Fire Boat) Dusseldorf
    Robbe Dusseldorf Fireboat. purchased secondhand and fully refurbished internally. motorised fire monitors and radar, lights, engine sound, fog horn,powered water monitor system (Motor: Robbe 3:1 geared) (10/10)

    Hope you don't mind a suggestion. Make the stand as a separate item, so you can slide the stand and boat out as one. Just glue some guides for the stand to the base so it cant move about, otherwise it means you will have to lift the boat up a fair way to overcome the height of the stand sides, risking damage to the masts and aerials. ;) Or make the roof panel of the box, slide same as the side panel, but you have to slide the side panel out first, so they interlock.

    Hi Dave.. The sound system will stay exactly where it is within the hull. When I designed the layout. I "pre formed" the cabin interior shell and made as a removeable unit when you lift the cabin off, so I already know everything is in the right place. Im still playing around with some seats, to see if I can convert to "mersey style", as the only ones i could get were for a Severn.

    Do a search for "dolls house fittings" there are some superb miniature brass hinges readily available, all they need is the odd strengthener added to suit. I looked at making my own hinges up from scratch, but with all the separate items involved, soldering them all together was going to be a nightmare as no sooner you fix one item, the heat would melt the solder off it when attempting to add another piece.

    7 years ago by Gregg ( Sub-Lieutenant)

    UNFORTUNATELY, due to a problem with one of the recently installed replacement valves, CRT are currently reducing the water level in Chasewater Lake to allow safe access to replace it. The valve is not set to be replaced until Sep't 22nd, as it will take this long to reduce the water level sufficiently. it is having to be lowered 1.5 mtrs BELOW its normal summer LOW level.

    ALL clubs that had contacted us to say they were attending have been contacted and advised of our unfortunate late cancellation, but was due to a problem out of our control.

    We hope to reinstate again for 2015.

    ๐Ÿ“ Paint spraying problem - can anybody help?
    8 years ago by Gregg ( Sub-Lieutenant)
    Flag
    If the manufacturer of pressurised pain cans [or any other can for that matter] thought that heating the can by any means was a good idea, they would do so on the label.
    Someone, somewhere will always take an idea to the extreme, so you have to try to think of this eventuality, so when making suggestions, you have to think first and think safety for all concerned.
    Would you like to read in the press that someone had received severe facial burns from a paint can exploding?

    not trying to sound nasty, but yes the forum is here to help and assist, but we have to consider peoples safety too at all times, and if a process is not clearly logged, it can lead to ambiguity of instruction and possible harm, which none of us want.
    So that's why I try to guide people to clarify these things, so no one does get hurt.

    PLEASE be careful if following the suggestion of warming a pressurised pain container, if the water is too hot, it can cause a sudden rise in pressure and the can explode!

    Kindly allow paint cans to warm gently to room temperature where possible.


    Andy K, please note that unless you state a specific temperature for the "hot water", someone could potentially use boiling water straight from a kettle with dangerous results, THINK SAFETY.

    I searched ebay and found a supplier who could do some nice hollow "D" shaped rubber tube, complete with adhesive tape on the flat side and to date it has not come adrift.

    PLEASE remember, if you want the boat to get anywhere near to its scale cruising speed and "semI plane", KEEP THE BUILD LIGHT !
    use plasticard to complete the missing upper cabin, not ply even, it weighs too much and watch out on fittings, the available white metal handrail stanchions are too soft and snap too easily, make your own from brass tube.

    the main reason for the "antI fouling" paint [and its colour] was because the baot it was applied to was stationed in sea water and moored in the water. Any boat either returned to slipway or trailer was painted white as it was not necessary for the hull to retain antI fouling paint as the boat was not kept in water.

    It all depends on your specific boat and where it is/was stationed. if its a slipway station , then it keeps the white hull.

    If you prefer it to steer a near straight course, then, YES !
    one motor should be running opposite to the other, so fit opposing turn props.

    If you don't, you could end up with a lot of torque steer.

    A 6ft long boat is going to take some powering, whats the max rpm on the motors? and what voltage batteries are you considering.

    All depends on how deep your wallet is as to how complicated you decide to build, plus would you realistically need such a high rotation of prop movement on a model boat?

    Sometimes simple is more longer lasting than expense.
    A lot can be achieved with kort nozzles and a bow thruster in model boats, both very reliable items with little maintenance in service.

    From looking at some details of these "logan cutters", they seem to be more orientated toward paper and card, maybe they "might" take plastic, but very thin plastic. Anything over 15thou and you might be struggling to make anything other than a scratch on.
    these types of cutters, their blades soon loose their sharp edge, so it can work out very costly in blade replacement.

    For long strips, its just as easy to use a longer metal straight edge or rule. Simply use a couple of fast clamps on either end of the straight edge to hold all in place. For "sections" you should really be cutting with a toothed blade, rather than scoring with a knife edge, having to try and force a knife blade through a plastic section often leads to bending or deformation of the plastic section and you dont achieve a square cut through, it ends up with a rounded edge which either needs filing or re carving to clean up, so use a fine toothed saw for section. I use a small joinery jig, as used for picture frame material, its light, small and suits plastic sections and allows your saw blade to cut vertically with ease, with no risk of "wandering"

    The only thing I find Irritating about having to change the blade in my knife, is. thats when I usually cut myself !! Anytime after that and I dont get even a scratch, but just those first few hours working with a new blade.......[ha ha].

    A knife you can easily change blades on. the sharper the blade, the easier it is to cut, but remember to only make "light" score marks, over and over each other. A single heavy cut can either suddenly drift off to one side or worse still, cause injury.

    If you need small [ish] round items, use a compass cutter, and again, several light cut passes gets better results.

    Graupner "schottle drive", albeit with limited angle of rotation, but thats only due to having to use a servo to rotate the drive unit, but serves to good effect.

    EVENT CANCELLED ! ๐Ÿ˜ญ

    YET AGAIN THE WEATHER HAS SEEN FIT TO FORCE CANCELLATION.
    SNOW HAS FALLEN AND CONTINUES TO FALL IN THE AREA. THE ROADS MAY BE OK, BUT THE FOOTPATHS ARE UNTREATED/NOT CLEARED AND THE WEATHER IS NOT SOMETHING I WOULD EXPECT ANYONE TO STAND OUT IN FOR ANY LENGTH OF TIME.

    CMBC EXPRESS THEIR APPOLOGIES, BUT BEYOND OUR CONTROL. ๐Ÿ˜Ÿ

    I presume you are talking about the inside edges of the hull, where you are going to bond the wooden reinforcing strips to., rather than the deck edge.

    Be careful not too take too much out, leave some "rough area" as it will help with the bonding of the 2 surfaces, make it to smooth and one slight knock against a bank and they might seperate.
