Hi Gents I have found this build fascinating including robbob's build. I have one these to build but will be doing an Aerokits Sea Commander first. As these designs go back to the 60's and were designed by Les Rowe ( I know I had one with an ED Racer in it.) So I will be referring back to this quite a bit. Will start a build blog on it. Shouldn't be to difficult busy changing my model engineering workshop to build boats. Model Engineering too expensive now boiler for my Springbok cost close GBP 1 300.00 alpne 😊😊. Trouble is I am importing all parts from UK etc. Between royal snail mail and SA post office I need to order any requirements in advance.
Just a point of interest RDG tools are also Myford they bought Myford when it liquidated. Can vouch for their quality as I have bought numerous accessories from RDG direct before they owned Myford for my Super 7. The other one is Tracy Tools in Torquay they are very helpful and sell peculiar things like left handed drills. Need to get a screw out?😊😊. Worth looking at their site.
Have a query here busy with Vosper 46" I intend to put a twin drive in using aP94 electronic controller ex action electronics Some of the design says to use 2 Graupner 900 speed motor these are no longer available any suggestions as I need the gel cells for ballast I think MFA Come 850's might be overkill Thanks
Hi My Naulantia had the same problem equipped with a Hitech Drum Winch. In the end due to frustration I used an arm type sail winch to control the sails. I know this is more expense but it solved a big problem
