    ๐Ÿ“ How do you draw bulkheads etc, from a 2 view plan?
    7 months ago by Hugh ( Master Seaman)
    Flag
    Those drawings are in 3rd angle projection. Ist angle used to be used in the UK, and sometimes called English projection.

    You need to draw, i.e. copy those views, Front and Plan , on to some drawing paper, then project an end view. Difficult to explain without showing you. Have you a drawing board and instruments ?

    Hi Alan,
    I, too, am building a Clyde Puffer. Mine is scratch built ,and same scale as yours. I have installed a 6:1 brushed electric motor. I wanted scale speed . The shaft length was 11" from memory.
    Interested in how you get on. Clyde puffers were lovely ships.
    Cheers Hugh

    Thanks to all of you who gave me some advice. I found out that The crystal on the transmitter was missing. it was in the box, so plug in and great joy! Tears of happiness. I bought this set years ago in Dorchester, Dorset on a trip to see my parents. I think it is a bit cheaper to buy here, but I will compare next back in the UK.
    Cheers, and thanks again guys, much appreciated.Hughie๐Ÿ˜Ž

    Hi Dave
    Thanks for your reply. No, I didn't try the RC before the aerial got broken. Yes, I have stripped the wire and twisted them together, but haven' t soldered them as yet. I haven't put the battery plug in the servos or vice versa.I will try what you suggest and let you know how I got on.

    I have installed a Futaba Attack 2ER receiver plus 2 servos in my fireboat. Both lights are 'on' on the transmitter, and there is the correct voltage coming from the battery supply to the receiver. When I plug in the servo ,the servo moves a bit. However, the transmitter has no effect on the servos. I have checked and rechecked the connections. The aerial was cut, but I have joined the parts together temporarily. Can anyone give me any advice?
    Cheers Hughie
