    My current fleet 14 July 2019
    At long last the new Dry Dock is completed, we now need a new centre piece for the dining room table. It needs to be something interesting to provoke conversation, which the models have done quite regularly. All I have to do now is finish the rest of the stuff that is not in camera shot!!!
    (Naval Ship) MTB
    A Deans Marine Kit. Flat Pack wood / ply. Made up to a nice model. Runs well, although it could do with a little more "bite" on the water As with all hard chine light weight boats it is prown to windage. Good on still waters but rubbish with a breeze in competitions. (Motor: 540) (ESC: tornado 20 amp) (7/10) Update July 2019 Have just received a new battery pack, a 7.2 volt up from a 6 volt. I just need a moment to try it on the pond to see if it runs any better. more later
    (Naval Ship) Huntsman
    This really is a build project, it is hardly out of the box. It will eventually grace the starboard side davits on Bulldog. However she shall be a fully working boat in her own right, a spin off from the Diana Challenge in a boat mag years ago. More when I get a whole lot more done (5/10)
    (Naval Ship) HMS Bulldog
    Metcalfe Kit at 1/48 She is has fine lines and looks well on the water. She handles reasonably well with independent control on each shaft given her length and the amount of superstructure too. She has direct drive on each shaft and need a load of ballast in the stern to keep the props well in the water otherwise she will cavitate quite dramatically Running 2 x 12 Amp Hour lead acids she has a great run time, helped by her hull lines, she will carry her way for quite a distance, so yo need to keep your wits about you on a busy pond! She is an ongoing project / refit with new davits and ships boats to be added. (ESC: Action Electronics P94) (8/10)
    (Tug Boat) Yorkshireman
    Model Slipway kit, with the incorrect wheelhouse windows, may change them one day when I have time on my hands, i do wish!! Been refitted with a Bow Thruster and up rated batteries from 2 x 12 Amp Hour to 2 x 14 Amp to give a better run time. Fan cooling added t the main motors. She runs well and I am slowly mastering the slow speed tight manoeuvring that twin screws on independent control and a bow thruster can give. A proper "Little" Big Ship that looks the part. (ESC: Action Electronics P94) (8/10)
    (Working Vessel) Maggie M
    A Model Slipway Kit Built by my late father in law, Frank Ballard Runs well, handles Ok with its Becker Rudder and Kort Nozzle. Maybe time for a refit (6/10)

    Hi Nery's We have not communicated before. All the best with medical challenges next week.
    I hope you enjoy the show, unfortunately I shall have to miss it, due to being Joint Chair of a Royal British Legion Branch and will be on Parade. Looking at your Barge, it may be worth you dropping by our club stand, Northants & District Stand R and having a chat with Les our resident, ex London, Thames Barge model builder and sailor. He is exhibiting three barges. I attached a couple photos of "Venta" underway. Just a thought, safe journey and enjoy yourselves. Ian

    Hi Guys
    Regret to say, Doug that I have never made it to Ostmark yet, although I now the Airport, Hauptbahnhof and Muchen Ost quite well. Not figured out so far how to pack a model so I could join you for Bier and Bavarian Hospitality. Had some of that in Frankenwald this September.
    Now to Yorkshireman Tug, Rocky. I run one of the early ones with the rubber belt reduction, driving each shaft, controlled by a P94 on individual sticks.
    Plus a bow thruster, rudders on right stick and Thruster on the left one
    All powered at 6 volts from a couple pf 6 volt 14 Amphr sealed lead acids, no need for extra ballast with those babies on board, It all works fine and after a little refresh after a lay off she will behave very well. Even giving enough confidence to take a hand off to consume refreshment, liquid or solid!!
    Happy sailing

    Hi Colin
    Now that is interesting as it has set my mind off on a different thought path, model azipods. But that is a different story for a different thread another day.
    While it will do the same job, its design is different in that we are looking at putting the motor around the prop blades as opposed to motor in the centre. Thus mimicking the real world that RR and Voith market solutions for with their Tunnel Thrusters.
    I am guessing Doug is correct with his workshop capabilities and cost observations on the tunnel drive. Maybe one day when the kit is available....... Who knows what is possible?

    Not sure if this clip helps you or not, what ever it is worth a look.
    If there is not room for that, even if you lengthened the centre shaft to bring the outboard motors nearer the centre line. Then what about this thought. UK supplier Cornwall Model Boats and others do gear packs. If you can get 1:1 gear sets. mount between two perspex sheets with suitable bearings to form a dropped drive line with input and out put on the same side. Make two units and mount on port and starboard shafts with the motors aft, over the shafts. If you are short of width angle the gear sets inwards at the top to bring the motors closer. Then just mount the centre motor direct on the end of the centre shaft in the conventional way, With a bit of luck and good model engineering all three motors will be accessible through the same aperture. Just a thought for you. It of course could be totally wrong too!

    Hi Martin I have a similar folding trolley. It is great because it folds quite small and is Ok for one model. It is a challenge though when you have a 120cm plus model on it navigating around people to / from the pond.
    So Christmas came and a new platform trolley arrived as per the link. Models still overhang, but in the direction of travel. I tend to have a crate with all the essential bits at the bottom and then, depending on the day a couple of models on their stands lashed on top of the crate. Works very well even over a long grass walk at Model Boat Mayhem this year. Only about 75/80mm thick folded, the wheels tuck up inside the platform

    Sounds good to me John B, it is down to what point on the boats time line you select to model.
    But space is not a new problem. Take a look at our RNLI Trent Class Lifeboats. They have staggered engines, one is direct straight in line and the other is on a Vee Drive facing the other way round. Apparently there is not enough clearance between the engines side by side, and they started with a blank sheet of paper!!

    John and Martin Thank you for tolerating the slight deviation. You both make very sound valid arguments regarding the finer details of a boat.
    A very experienced warship builder I know often asks how far away you will be when examining a model. A foot, two foot or what ever. Then scale that up for say a 1/96 model destroyer and at 1 foot off you are viewing at 96 feet. After a tear or two of service and many coats of paint how many rivets can you see? There comes a point when scale accuracy just has to stop. My actual question was actually more aimed at the fact we were tied up in the detail of the finish, paint, and lights but there had been no comments that it only had one shaft and not two, or does that not matter as it is underwater?
    I guess I have talked this back to personal preference etc. Good Night all

    Martin. Spot on! Enjoyment is paramount. Did you meet your goal, for your skill set, and did it sail well? If it does that then it is a winner in my book. As I have some real one to one scale exposure I guess I have a leaning towards operations, can I mimic the real ship. If I am anywhere kind of close with a good looking, my opinion, boat the I have enjoyment It is a hobby after all.

    Going back a tad to the thread around i month ago when MaggieM and Robbob discussed planked or painted decks.
    Comments were made about a shinny RAF Fireboat at Warwick, which is a very good friends project. His is 93. What else is in the photo is 94 built by another good friend. Much has been made in this thread about scale models and correct paint, plus position of, and colour of stern lights on these boats.( and the research too)
    So there is an element of modellers licence or personal preference, which has been discussed in depth. The is fine!
    However I would like to ask you guys as to how far you go with "License" As while 93 is a great model and sails very well, it scares the hell out of us all with the wake at full throttle. There is a glaring deviation from prototype design! The model is only single screw, and not twin as per prototype! Before you ask there is a barn like space inside her so it is not a space issue. So if it is twin screw prototype should it be a twin screw model? Would you mark it down as a judge in a scale competition? Thoughts anyone, before I leave the country!!!.

    White it is then.

    As to it being on the centre line then that may be a little more obscure. It is all down to how the light is observed, its actual visible arc of light. Take a look at how many different positions the stern lights are on RNLI Tamar class lifeboats!!

    Hi I realise this is some what behind the thread, but I do wonder if the Towing Light is correct. It would be for today and possibly this millennium but back in the 1950's I wonder. There are 200 plus pages in the attached IMO link and not some much as a peep about Nav Lights, which seem to appear in the 1972 versions. The is if you wish to be a pedantically accurate scale modeller, your call. Do not forget to scale up the distance you are viewing a model at, so many have there nose stuck to he model, so at 1/24 you are 24 inches away for every inch you are away from the model. So a couple of foot becomes 48 real feet, Time for a rest now as that is all to hard for an average modeller

    Doug, yeah, leaving them in water to see if the VP will shrink is obviously a non starter. I guess you could nip down the road an hour or two and see if you can find a Swiss Watch Maker who could get it down to 30mm Dia. If you do find one, I will order a couple of 40mm for my tug and a further on for my trawler.
    As to the Magnetic Motors, for me its about space in the model to fit enough generation capacity to meet the full load requirements.
    Assuming the load current can be generated, a method of switching in or out the magnetic gen sets as the load varies will be required. I am assuming that you will need more than one unit.
    Then, as you say we need a direct reversing ESC that will handle both the load and the power from the magnetic get sets as opposed to the nice smooth supply from a battery.
    Big Boys Toys like ships and rail locos have a Thyristor Bridge to do it, We could use suitable transistors or high current power micro circuits to build a DIY one.
    Having said all this, is it a value solution to save the fitting of a battery? Loads of different views and issues to weigh up for each modeller to reach there own conclusion. For now I have to much invested in batteries, not only as power sources but also as ballast!

    Hi `Doug

    To be absolutely correct the ship I was on did not have Kort Nozels as it has a pair RR Azipulls, which have an inboard electric motor driving what is in effect a 360 deg rotating Schcttel Drive. The props aways face clean water as they face the direction of travel, un like a conventional shaft drive where they face aft and have loads of boat in the water flow.
    As with most electric ships 2 engines give normal cruising speeds of around 12 knots, for 15 you need another diesel on the line!
    It was interesting to see the actual controls. A knob about the size of a tennis ball with a small lever that moved through 90deg per Prop .Top dead centre was stop, all the way to horizontal was full power.
    The ship is MS Fram and she took us to 68deg 17 South !! An absolutely awesome voyage!! But this is maybe a tad off point for this thread.

    Hi Doug Nice advert spot as you say.

    When used as a Tunnel Thruster the argument you raise about foil shape and astern running may apply.
    However when fitted to a fully Azmuthing Pod, one that turns through 360 degrees the problem goes away as to go astern you just turn the pod the other way.
    Well that was how a Chief Engineer explained it to me a couple of years ago. The other point he made was the prop is always turning in it's optimum direction, you just turn the pod and therefore the thrust!
    The ship was very quiet indeed as all the power plants are Gen Sets on resilient sound deadening mounts, just a power station of 4 MaK straight six turbo charged diesels.

    Guys & Gals
    Having seen a number of You Tube Vids of some great model shows in Europe, mainly Germany, a number of us are wondering about organising a trip.
    So the questions
    1) Any recommendations. Where have you been, Was it good etc.
    2) Is the Nuremberg Toy Fair a modellers
    show. It reads like a Dealer /Trader show?
    thanks in advance
