    ๐Ÿ“ Alvaston Pirates Model Boat Club Grand Opening Day
    5 years ago by John2059 ( Leading Seaman)
    Flag
    Awesome day at alvaston lake. Even the rain couldn't dampen the fun. Many members of the public could have a go with a specially designed boat. The area was well marked as well as a floating harbour for those manoeuvreing skills and also a large lighthouse to potter around. Other clubs were there displaying their awesome craft. I personally took my KG5 battleship made from steel and also a converted fast attack craft. The organisation was exceptional with all h&s in place. The event wad officially opened by the deputy Mayor of derby. One thing that did turn many heads was the full size radio controlled Dalek which is the Alvaston pirates appointed captain. All the kids as well as the adults loved this. Further to this there was also an excellent cafe called the Mad hatter which served excellent food and beverages. All in all an excellent day out. To all those that missed it or could not come down look out for their next show. You will not be disapppointed. Well done to the Alvaston pirates model boat club. May you have many more events. Excellent.

    HI everyone. Nearly finished superstructure. Flycatter dessie way is sound. Great tissue instruction that. I started but didnt like using it so I opted for sanding sealer. Great finish after a few coats. Tissue wud b stronger though. Oh just so you know I used a slec rudder as its fits perfect without having control wire on top of deck.

    Ooo great minds and all that. I have just finished the hull and started sanding a bit. Next like urself des I will be doping and tissue for extra strength and ultimately a bit o waterproofing. Gonna use some silicone sealant inside as well especially at join for underside at the keel.

    Yea I did have an issue but didnt take any off. I did fillthe gaps at front though. Transom was a git. Making sure it doesnt twist. Anyway its modelling. Glad I made it a bit wider though. More space to manoeuvre.> ๐Ÿ˜Ÿ

    Good call on the deck issue. I have started the build and nearly completed hull. Didnt use 3inch wide instead I used4. Hopefully this will Improve displacement a bit as I thought she looked a bit narrow. Ships sides were a bugger at bow. Lol.

    HI dessie,
    Sounds good. I had a look at the plan today and I might just build another one after following the original and try to sub the balsa superstructure for plasticard etc. wonder if there will be a weight prob. I.e. top heavy. Oh and I think I wil add a keel as well. We will see. Build the original first though. Good luck with the rest o it.
