[Score: 10/10] 39" Eppleton Hall Capable of 3mph and a runtime of 60mins Geared to a 540 MFA 919D Powered by Lead Acid (12v) 2Amp/h Batteries Controlled Through VIPER Marine 25 ESC - Comments: I am in the process of building a 32nd scale model of the paddle tug "Eppleton Hall" from scratch, for the most part. The hull is complete now and ready for fiberglass. Stay tuned for progress updates... The hull has been fiberglassed with 2 oz. glass cloth, ZAP Z-POXY resin and Bondo Glazing and Spot Putty to fill in dings and low spots. It has been sanded many times with different grits of sandpaper, so now I have one final thin coat of Z-POXY resin to finish it. I also built a boat stand out of cedar for it.
[Score: 10/10] 39"/3500g Voyager II Capable of 12mph and a runtime of 120mins Powered by NiMH (4.8v) 4Amp/h Batteries Controlled Through N/A ESC - Comments: This is an "Almost Ready to Run" 1 M Cup Yacht made by Thunder Tiger and no longer in production. It is good for static display and outdoor sailing. It is simple to operate and handles very responsively. It is very good quality for the price and its strong construction should ensure a long service life.
[Score: 9/10] 22"/1400g Lobmaster Capable of 3mph and a runtime of 50mins Single Propellor (2 Blade S Type 30mm) Direct Drive to a 550 PJ6047 Thunder Tiger (2 Blade S Type) Powered by Lead Acid (6v) 5Amp/h Batteries Controlled Through Veloci Pro-R Thunder Tiger (50Amps) ESC - Comments: 1/24th scale Ready-to-Run European style fishing boat. Three (3) 'G' scale figures added and 1/24th scale welding rig from Phoenix Mobile Mechanic Series garage accessories. I also added some very subtle weathering (mostly rust) to the hull.
[Score: 8/10] 33"/3700g "Maureen Lee" Capable of 3mph and a runtime of 90mins Single Propellor (3 Blade 30mm) Direct Drive to a 550 type (3 Blade) Powered by NiMH (7.2v) 3Amp/h Batteries Controlled Through Unknown ESC - Comments: The “Maureen Lee” started out as a Bristol Bay ready-to-run semi-scale model of a typical European fishing cutter. Many modifications were made to her to make her look like an old, worn-out fishing boat. Factory-installed switchable work and navigation lighting means that she can even be operated at night. A 550-size electric motor and metal propeller allow for ample power. A Bristol Bay model is supplied practically fully assembled… you need only mount the two masts and install the batteries. Numerous robust details make this model look great at home or on the water! Technical specifications: Hull length: 850 mm Width: 220 mm Overall height: 737 mm Total weight: 3650 g
The Winnipeg Model Boat Club was formed in 1994 by a group of enthusiasts. We build model boats of various scales and subjects, both operational and static. While not specifically a radio control club, many of our members enjoy outfitting their boats for radio control operation. We are a noncompetitive club. On Sunday mornings and Wednesday evenings throughout the spring, summer and autumn, our members can be found sailing their boats at the Riley Family Duck Pond in Assiniboine Park. In winter, we meet monthly and talk about all things model boat-related as well as discuss current projects and plans. Our annual regatta is held in May at the Riley Family Duck Pond. We also take part in a number of public displays throughout the year at HMCS Chippawa, the Red River Exhibition and the Mega Train Show. For more information about the club or how to become a member, please contact us. We also proudly support: Naval Museum of Manitoba HMCS Chippawa 1 Navy Way, Winnipeg, MB Canada
