    WPB 110 Island Class
    Model of the American Coast Guard WPB 110 Island class with a size of 95 cm. Equipped with two AC motors, two regulators, 2 x LiPol batteries 4000 mA, 7.4 V. Laminate construction and some ABS plastic parts. Since I have a 3D printer, I print some things like a mast, ventilation, etc. myself. The model will be completely illuminated according to the actual ship.
    BOBR
    It is a kit of a river tug of Czech production, which rode here on the river Elbe. Laminate hull, superstructure partially molded from ABS plastic. I fitted the engine with a MIG 600, lead-acid battery 6V, 10 A. Standard rudder servo. The rest of the accessories are resin castings and 3D printing. Tugs drove in 1970 and some still run in Hamburg. This is a fairly successful kit from Mr. Hýbek. The model is not finished yet, it is winter weather and I need to paint some parts before gluing. Unfortunately, I have to wait for spring😎😁
    BOJOVÁ LOĎ CB 90
    The model of the ship is from the TIGER models kit in 1/35 scale. I made the model in a civilian version as a medical ambulance. From China, I ordered 2 pieces of JET drives equipped with two motors with a size of 150 regulators, two pieces of 10 A and a two-cell Li-Ion battery 7.4V and 3000mA. I've only tested the boat so far in the bathtub at home, but it's pretty nimble. I can only state that this kit is really hilarious and a nice piece for brokers.
    ZIRKON
    Yacht ZIRKON all-fiberglass hull, which I bought at the bazaar. The yacht will be equipped with Z - drives 2pcs, with 450W AC motors. 2 pcs AC regulators60A. 2pcs LiPol battery 3 cells 5000 mA. Servo 2 pcs bend 7 kg. In the already prepared but I do not manage time, I have unfinished things.
    HMS TYNE

    WSP 9
    Police boat model by Vladyka.The whole building from ABS, engine MIG 400 water-cooled, reheater DSYS 18A, battery 2600mA LiPol. A very stable ship, even at higher speeds, maneuverable and comfortable.

    REWELL Kit 1:72, fitted with 3 MIG 280 DC motors, 3 DC controllers up to 20A, 1 LiPol battery 2200mA, 4 channel Turnigy receiver, one microswitch for two rudders. it is dyed with REWELL semi-matt colors in synthetic colors and at the end over decals and the whole ship three layers of glossy REWELL lacquer. The ship was imported with lead by the keel so that it did not curve on the opposite side in turns. Because I did not reach the four-bladed bolts, I modified three-blade brass. For the time being, the boat has only been tested in a bath at home due to winter weather in the Czech Republic. For its 64 cm it is designed for riding on a calm surface. if I can evaluate this kit it is excellent. I can only recommend. (Motor: MIG 280) (ESC: mini dc 20A - Czech rep) (8/10)

    Hi friends,
    I learned not to give more batteries for lighting. I use LEDs on almost all lighting and it is enough to connect a ballast resistor of 490 ohms and approx. 0.5 W to one pole of the battery at the output of the battery. This resistor will supply the saltpeter up to a voltage of 12 V without damaging it. Applies to all types of LEDs. This is a small guide on how to omit additional batteries in the boat and save weight. I basically put resistors below decks and from there only wires for the given lighting. I also use wires that you get from the anchor of a discarded small electric motor. So the wires are pretty thin and they are painted so that they are also insulated so that they can be put on top of poles, etc. I perform soldering on Acylpiryn or Superpyryn, which will also be available at home. It is great to solder tin on the tablet without having to remove the insulation varnish.

    πŸ“ EASY LiPo vybitΓ­ baterie
    2 months ago by Inkoust ( Midshipman)

    View All
    Hi, this is not how LiPol batteries are treated.
    I recommend using a cheap digital charger, which has a built-in balancer and the ability to discharge batteries. At the same time, it has a storage program in its menu, which will take care of charging the cells to about 60% after discharging.(charger from TURNIGY) This way, the articles can be saved for up to half a year. And they will not be damaged. I myself have 4000 mA twin cells, which are 5 years old and are still not inflated and have full capacity. Under no circumstances should LiPol batteries be stored in a discharged state - they will be damaged.
    Zdenek Czech Republic - Central EuropeπŸ‘ŽπŸ‘

    Don't know where my post has gone,?? but there is nothing wrong with discharging a LiPo like this. It is exactly the same as running a motor to discharge a battery you have charged but are not using, and want to discharge back to storage level. You will note that there is a cell monitor as well as a voltage alarm to show when the battery is nearing storage level. Then you discharge the battery using the discharge/balance/amp meter (you will need to buy one of these to do this) the rest of the way,- or you can put it on the balance charger to storage level I have been doing this for more than 10 years, have 15 planes and 6 boats,- all LiPo powered. I also use the same LiPos in camping lanterns. Never had a problem.

    JB

    Hello, yes, this is one of the options, but it is unnecessarily lengthy and requires constant control to avoid damaging the cells. What I wrote is just an easier way to treat the battery. By no means did I want to deny your procedure.
    ZdenΔ›k wishes much success in modeling.

    Hi, well, for the money, it could be better milled. I'd rather do this from laminate boards. I don't like to see wood on water. It is something else to make the hull, but the superstructures, unless the original in wood, prefer ABS plastic or laminate.
    I hope everything will suit you and I look forward to the result. Health ZdenekπŸ˜‰

    Hi ,
    nice work. I have a new 3D printer, but due to the fact that I can't print with that pen. What kind of program do you use to convert to G code? I use CURA Ultimaker, but always after a while of printing something goes wrong and the thread starts to curl. For some things, it's no problem, but some models don't go well. I use a 200 degree PLA and a table at 60. I have an ENDER 3 printer from Creality.

I have plans like the ones you published, but they are not very detailed, but you can build according to them. But when the right time comes and I finish the broken ships, I will probably start too, but so that it is at least 1 meter long. I am sending a greeting in the distance ZdenΔ›kπŸ˜‰

    Hi Doug, I know there's a lot more missing, but I didn't make a mock-up though it may be. There are a lot of things in the box and when I ride a boat, it is better for such a small boat so that there are not many details that then break off. So much to explain. Otherwise, the rear of the deck does not fit according to the civilian version and the difference is on the front deck where the machine guns are in the combat version. I didn't want to interfere so much with the original kit. But she's good. ZdenΔ›kπŸ˜‰

    Greetings and thank you, I tried to get as close to reality as possible. But there are only a few photos of civilian versions on the net, so I tried according to the pictures. There are still a lot of inconsistencies in the construction on board, when the combat has other components at the stern than the Ambulance. In any case, I'm happy with her and she did quite well.

    Hi Doug, I'm sorry for the middleman, it's really a kit from Tiger modell. The REWEL company makes lots of ship, aircraft and other plastic kits, which are commonly available in our country. I have 1:72 Herman Marwede from them and they ride amazingly. However, the CB 90 is a good kit and I cheated it a bit because I was worried about the weight of the model so that it would not be heavy. But the fact showed that I could put on the model far more details that were left in the box unused. I still had to load the model to draw water well into the JET nozzles. In the meantime, I'm slowly working on Tyne and still on a large modern yacht with "Z" drives. My left arm was paralyzed and I could do almost nothing. I just need two hands to build. Greetings ZdenekπŸ˜‰
