Banckert by liamduck Sub-Lieutenant   Posted: 4 months ago
[Score: 8/10] 25" Banckert Single Propellor (3 Blade 25mm) Direct Drive to a 555 (3 Blade) Powered by NiMH (7.2v) 2Amp/h Batteries Controlled Through BDESC-S10E (10Amps) ESC - Comments: Built from a Billings kit I bought at Bury Metro open day. This is quite an old kit and needed careful handling due to it's age. I needed to reinforce the hull in places. Quite a reasonably easy kit to build, despite Billings (as usual) not providing any instructions, jus drawings to guide the builder.

Happy Hunter by liamduck Sub-Lieutenant   Posted: 6 months ago
[Score: 8/10] 44"/7300g Happy Hunter Twin Propellors (4 Blade 50mm) Direct Drive to a MFA Torpedo 800 (4 Blade) Powered by Lead Acid (12v) 7Amp/h Batteries Controlled Through Action P94 ESC - Comments: Found this kit on a well-known auction site and bought it for £100. It is the original Robbe kit and fittings included. There was no command module and so I have devised a way of having working anchors, tow, crane and warning beacon, bow thruster, nav lights and searchlight. It was a bit of a struggle to balance her properly and she needs quite a lot of ballast. A real handful, you might say but she looks really well on the pond.

A couple of pics.

happy hunter by liamduck Sub-Lieutenant   Posted: 10 months ago
Hi spitiresooty, on the starboard side there is a staircase from the bridge deck down to the fore deck near the crane. on the port side there is a ladder from the roof of the bridge down to the bridge deck. This ladder is fixed to the bridge wall in front of the portside funnel. Hope this helps.

happy hunter by liamduck Sub-Lieutenant   Posted: 10 months ago
Hi, I am in the process of building the Happy Hunter now. I have had it in my loft for some years until I got time to build it. I would be happy to post pics of the plans if that would help. the plans show details of sub assemblies too. Hope that helps.😊

Marchioness of Lorne by liamduck Sub-Lieutenant   Posted: 1 year ago
[Score: 8/10] 44"/2000g Marchioness of Lorne Capable of 4mph and a runtime of 15mins Belt Powered by NiMH (9.6v) Batteries Controlled Through twin 30A unbranded (10Amps) ESC - Comments: Model of a Scottish Lochs paddle boat with twin side-paddles. Bought as a renovate project and rewired and refurbished back to working order.

Felix by liamduck Sub-Lieutenant   Posted: 1 year ago
[Score: 5/10] 13"/600g Felix Capable of 6mph and a runtime of 40mins Single Propellor (3 Blade 20mm) Direct Drive Powered by LiPoly (7.4v) 2Amp/h Batteries - Comments: Felix model by Krick of a German harbour transport launch. Biult from a kit.

Blackpool Model Show by liamduck Sub-Lieutenant   Posted: 1 year ago
I saw that model garage. Absolutely marvellous and superb attention to detail, I was very impressed by his modeling skills.👍

Oh dear ! Can't make it. Wrong dates for me..........................I will be in sunny Spain then, Yayyyyy. 😎

Blackpool Model Boat Show by liamduck Sub-Lieutenant   Posted: 1 year ago
I had a look at Blackpool show on Saturday. Sadly, it is not nearly as good as it used to be and there appeared to be no new ideas about featuring the show. I did get a few bits 'n bobs that I needed but I could also have got them elsewhere without paying £6 for the privilege. I thought the lighting was reasonable, although slightly darker in some corners. All in all, I thought Haydock Park was better (but more expensive) and I prefer Ellesmere Port over both of these.😉

Largs Boat Club by liamduck Sub-Lieutenant   Posted: 1 year ago
I love visiting Scotland and Largs is on my list. Hopefully they might have a functioning pond when I get to visit. My next visit is planned for Newton Park near Ayr next Easter time.

[Score: 7/10] 30" Comtesse Powered by NiMH (6v) 2Amp/h Batteries - Comments: My first build. Built from a kit by Robbe.

I have been to the park this year and the model display is still taking place and is well supported too.😎
