I'm not sure how much use some of the plans would be, but worth a look... Here's the email address: http://oldboats.tk/

Kingfisher progress by jonbliss152 Sub-Lieutenant   Posted: 9 months ago
Hi all, Has anyone got info on where you can source the plans or a kit for a Kingfisher? I'd love to have a go a building one but don't seem to be able to find a scrap of information on the model. Cheers Jon

Thanks Haverlock, I had that thought myself.

Thanks Alan, I'm probably worrying about nothing but I just didn't fancy leaving it unattended and find I have an issue with it on the water. Thanks for your reply. Jon

Aerokits Fast Patrol Launch stern cover by jonbliss152 Sub-Lieutenant   Posted: 10 months ago
Thanks Alan, the cover I've built is quite a tight fit, I'm just a bit concerned that spray might wash over the cover and allow water to collect in the compartment.

Aerokits Fast Patrol Launch stern cover by jonbliss152 Sub-Lieutenant   Posted: 10 months ago
Hi can anyone lend advice on the issue im having. I'm currently building my first craft and need to work out how to secure the stern cover over the rudder steering gear? Thanks Jon

Aerokits Fast Patrol Boat by jonbliss152 Sub-Lieutenant   Posted: 11 months ago
Hi, I'm currently in the process of building my first model. It's one of my fathers that has been sat in the loft, kit form for 30 odd years. I have the decals to turn it into a fire boat but I'm struggling to find a suitable monitor to place on the coach house roof. Can you remember where yours came from?

Thanks Robert, I'll take a look at the site %uD83D%uDE0A

Aerokits Fast Patrol Launches by jonbliss152 Sub-Lieutenant   Posted: 1 year ago
Hi Kalamunda, How did you get round the issue of the hull Lettering/Numbering? I've been unable to source suitable decals to apply to my boat and was wondering if you could advise? Many thanks Jon

On the same subject can anyone offer any advice on the best primer to use for wooden hull construction? Many thanks Jon

Aerokits Sea Urchin Sea Nymph by jonbliss152 Sub-Lieutenant   Posted: 1 year ago
Hi Harleydream1, I like what you have done with the Sea Urchin, its hard to see in the image but are you operating the tiller steering with lines run forward to a servo? Many thanks Jon

Tarpon Build 01 by jonbliss152 Sub-Lieutenant   Posted: 1 year ago
I like to idea of your makeshift cutting tool, I take it you pilot drill a hole far enough in to guide the cutting tube into place? Cheers Jon

fast patrol launch project by jonbliss152 Sub-Lieutenant   Posted: 1 year ago
Thanks again for the info Boaty, I've decided to fit a Brushless 28/38mm 3500KV motor with a 35Amp ESC. The motor seems to have quite a bit of torque and runs at a high top speed, though its first sea trial will tell all. When I get it fully assembled I'll post a few images on the webpage. Thanks again for the help 😀 Regards Jon

Hi Boaty, thanks for replying to my post I'll take a look at the website you recommend. Many thanks Jon

Aerokits Fast Patrol Launches by jonbliss152 Sub-Lieutenant   Posted: 1 year ago
Hi Kalamunda, I'm currently building an FPL and have fitted a thin piece of silicone tube between the rudder shaft support tube and the tiller arm on the top of the rudder shaft, this seems to stop the ingress of water into the rear compartment. I hope this helps!! Jon

Hi , I'm currently building this Fast Patrol Launch myself, I was just interested to know what propulsion system you have in this one? Cheers Jon

Fireboat & Suction (pick-up) Hoses by jonbliss152 Sub-Lieutenant   Posted: 1 year ago
Hi, I like the design of your motor cooling, what tubing did you use to wrap around the motors? Jon
