Smoke Generator by martinsperring070558 Chief Petty Officer   Posted: 2 years ago
Okay, stability issue resolved I presume I could have one unit to service the two funnels?

I was looking on ebay (Model Boat Smoke Effect Unit V1 12v - Uses Water (No Oil / Smoke Fluid)

Many thanks for both replies, I was looking at the water version - I have been told the Glycol version leaves deposits on the superstructure. The real question was stability, if you have a full take of water - Possible irrelevant as the tank is small would it affect the stability of the ship?

As for my next build I am looking at HMS Devonshire, the first Royal Navy Guided Missile Destroyer. My last Build HMS Blake (See Post) has rotating Radar that was my limit. I would like to push the boat as to say and add some smoke from both funnels. I have seen some smoke generators on offer and was wondering about stability as the water evaporates up the funnel. I will be looking to rotate the two main Aerial on the ship and was wondering about moving turrets - Or would that be step to far this will be my four build.http://model-boats.com/sys_files/graphics/smileys/S09.gif

East Park, Hull they have drained it for the winter........

HMS Blake by martinsperring070558 Chief Petty Officer   Posted: 3 years ago
Bought from GT Sitek as the Running gear, yes she is heavy however I placed her in the water for the first time last month and she actually sits quite well in the water and needs no ballast - I am using two 12V 3700mAh SC NiMH Battery Pack. Will post some videos when they decide to put some water back in our pond. 😊

HMS Blake by martinsperring070558 Chief Petty Officer   Posted: 3 years ago
Yes, it has not been in the water as yet, the motors run and it is all fitted out with speed controllers and servo for the rudder. I need to test it for leaks and add some ballast if necessary. Then glue the forward deck, the quater deck and Flight deck: then I can add the fairleads to the upper deck. I am not sure if I have connected the motors correctly until I go to park. I am awaiting some final fittings from SIMAR (Sea King Helicopter, roller fairleads) then all will be completed. 😁

HMS Blake by martinsperring070558 Chief Petty Officer   Posted: 3 years ago
I decided to build from scratch HMS Blake, I used the Jecobin Plan for HMS Tiger 1/96 scale. This was the first ship I served on in the Royal Navy 1976 to 1979. The hull is supplied by Scalewarships.com, the fittings, Scalewarships.com, John Haynes Fittings and SIMAR; the running gear from GT Sitek. The build is nearing completion and now requires the guardrails and the decks fixing in place.

Well that is stupid place to build it...... 😁

Four Motors Wiring Advice by martinsperring070558 Chief Petty Officer   Posted: 3 years ago
The Model is to big for the bath, I will need to some how take it to park, I think it is to big for the car as well so it could be interesting. 😰

Four Motors Wiring Advice by martinsperring070558 Chief Petty Officer   Posted: 3 years ago
Yes, I have the Running set for HMS Blake from GT Siteck with LH/RH Props, I always put them on wrong and loose them. 😯

Four Motors Wiring Advice by martinsperring070558 Chief Petty Officer   Posted: 3 years ago
Okay will try that and switch my wiring around.

Four Motors Wiring Advice by martinsperring070558 Chief Petty Officer   Posted: 3 years ago
Just explain how I would do that?

Four Motors Wiring Advice by martinsperring070558 Chief Petty Officer   Posted: 3 years ago
Reversing? 💭

Four Motors Wiring Advice by martinsperring070558 Chief Petty Officer   Posted: 3 years ago
. 😀 Now sorted the servo was not working because it was set up incorrectly. Many thanks to all who posted.

Four Motors Wiring Advice by martinsperring070558 Chief Petty Officer   Posted: 3 years ago
Changed the wiring motors working although the starboard inner runs slow and is noisy, may have a bent shaft. Small problem the rudder servo is not working. I have connected this to channel 2 changed leads still not working Will try changing the channels on the receiver. 😟

Four Motors Wiring Advice by martinsperring070558 Chief Petty Officer   Posted: 3 years ago
VMT will change my configuration. 👍

Four Motors Wiring Advice by martinsperring070558 Chief Petty Officer   Posted: 3 years ago
Okay will give that a try. 👍

Four Motors Wiring Advice by martinsperring070558 Chief Petty Officer   Posted: 3 years ago
Just completing the build of HMS Blake 1/96 scale. Need some advice on wiring the four into the system. My set up is four MFA360 motors, one P102 Action Electronics, 2 x 20amp speed controllers, P103 parrell board for two batteries and two 12v 3700May MiNH Batteries. I have wired my type 23 for two motors,however I am struggling with four.

Hi, I am just completing my second build, 1/96 scale HMS Blake. The first HMS Montrose (Type 23) was completed some two years ago.
