    (Naval Ship) HMS Diamond D35 Destroyer
    Presently building this Destroyer why not check out my building blog? After some months of ill health I'm getting ready to restart this project and blog too. it's horrible when poor health prevents something but at least I'm screaming kicking and alive. More details to follow here. (Motor: X2 600) (ESC: TBC) (5/10)
    (Racing Boat) Mac1 Speed Boat
    Nice little speed boat and easy to build too. This was built with water cooling. Once again I lent the plans out so I can't provide plan details. (ESC: EnERG) (8/10)
    (Racing Boat) CACHALOT Speed Boat
    This little boat is easy to build and unfortunately I have lent out the plans and they have not been returned so I can't get all of the plan details. Look at the photos. I eventually called this MAC219 (8/10)
    (Other) RAF Range Safety Launch
    Designer: Vic Smeed A 1:12 scale model of a Thorneycroft RAF launch, length 43in., beam 12.5in Suitable for 2.5cc upwards. Excellent for R/C. Completely detailed on two large sheets. Myhobbystore uk. MM412 I built this Range Safty Launch two years ago and I am now changing the hull paintwork to also include a water line. I never got around to doing this for some reason. Range Saftey Launch I purchased the plans for this model after my late father passed away, he too was building this model but failed to finish it before he died. My father was an Ex RAF Patrol boat pilot, hence the design was appropriate. The plans (Two sheets) are really well presented and easy to use. Each of the sheets provide ample detail to construct the basic model and if you are an experienced builder then these should suffice. However, a little research may be required to put the final touches together for the completed model (If you are a perfectionist like me). These plans are suitable for a novice as a first time project. This being my first attempt at a scale model. The boat once completed sails really well. I fitted mine out with electric motors, speed controller etc and when on the water a few heads turned! Fantastic plans GO FOR IT! Roy McCluskey (Motor: German ) (ESC: Viper 50 Amp) (10/10)
    (Tug Boat) SAM Tug
    I built this in 2013 from a picture and one sheet drawing without any building guidance. It took me around three months to complete and the first sailing on Paddy Freeman boating lake was a great success. I called this tug SAM. A lovely model to sail (10/10)

    Hi

    I've just seen your post and not too sure of your name. However, there are no hard and fast rules of what to select for your first build. Common sense and experience is critical. if you feel that you are able to apply the necessary skills to your selected build then do it. The Kawkab sounds ideal.

    If it's any help My First build was a simple ply speed boat around 24" in length from plans. I cut all the necessary templates and then glued it all together. it taught me a lot about getting things square and aligned too.

    I then built an RAF range safety Launch 36" 10" beam with loads of different building techniques required but once again this was for me an easy build. You can view my RSL on my pages.

    Good luck with your build and don't forget to start a blog I would be very interested like others to see it.

    Kind regards
    Roy

    The deck colour looks fine Dave I must admit I'm trying to find paint for mine to no avail and I'm now considering having it mixed.

    Keep going and good luck with the bits and bobs there's lots of fiddly small items to scratch build.

    TIP: Build small portions of railings these are fragile and easily replaced if damaged in transit etc.

    Looking good

    I'm nearly ready to give the hull it's first coat of sea going paint. I'm pleased with the lines and shape. I must admit I have spent a little more time on this particular build than I have other projects for some reason and this is not a Difficult hull to construct.

    I'm still trying to locate a supplier for the light Admiralty Grey paint and I will visit a couple of my local Newcastle Model Shops this week.

    The inside of the hull has now been given it's final coat of varnish and I have decided to use micro servos throughout this build. A test set up proved successful today.

    I have made a start on the mast section today and I will post pictures later this week. There is a lot of work in this particular part of the build and, once again small parts all cut from brass sheet..... I'm Still trying to master cutting this stuff.

    PS if you're interested in my Railings Jig plans I can only send them via pdf format in an email.... Send a private message to me through the message pages with your email to enable me to get them to you.

    I spent some time today building (Soldering) the life raft shoot supports and once again at this scale it is tedious work. The pictures explain it all.....

    I just need to square and tidy the solder up with a file.

    I made some 0.5mm saw cuts in the block of hard wood used to allow the 1mm wire to sit in. I drilled small holes to feed retaining wire through to keep everything from moving around. it took around 15 mins to make one frame from cutting wire, positioning, fluxing and soldering.

    There are around ten of these and unfortunately three different sizes!

    Keep watching folks

    Amendment to jig

    The building jig for the 1/96th scale railings is working really well and I'm building one set of railings a day at the moment. Seemingly the more I do the better and easier it becomes.

    I've made one minor addition to the jig since my last post and that's a small swivel arm to keep the support block up while feeding and connecting the wire.

    I will be producing a detailed building sheet in AutoCAD soon so if anyone would like a copy please send me a private message.

    Continued from the last build blog....

    The first picture shows a piece of wood dowel pushed into a length of alloy tube 6mm in this case. I measured the post length I needed for the railing and positioned the dowel and once happy that the wire Imbedded at the correct depth I secured this with tape. Easy now just push the wire into the hole and cut off at end. You can make the posts very quickly.

    The second picture shows a small length of completed railing with the coins giving perspective. The jig described in my last post really does work very well.

    Incidentally, the alloy heat plate as I call it allows the hot solder to cure quickly allowing enough time to work.

    Building the 1/96th scale railings has been made a lot easier using my home brew building jig described here with enough information for others to use. incidentally this started off with a small prototype mentioned on these pages a few days ago.

    I started off with a length of hard wood around 20" x 4" 3/4" thick and marked out the guidelines for the railings. The actual length can be of your choice. I used hard wood because it will be a more tolerant in handling the heat. incidentally the pictures show some soft wood the length of the mid section which once wasted can be replace. This is used solely for guides.

    I purchased some guitar head screws x6 for around ยฃ5 on eBay which are used to tighten the very thin 0.5mm wire when soldering to the posts. The pictures show how I have set this up at the turnbuckle end. There are 3 copper pins to guide the wire and there are some shelf pin supports just to direct the wire in the correct path to the two outside turnbuckles.

    It may be worthwhile mentioning at this stage that I incorporated a small block across the wires at each end of the board with M6 bolts and wing nuts to ensure the the wire was pushed nice and flush with the alloy heat plate, and, to help the posts remain still too.

    The alloy heat plate requires groves for the post pins to sit in. I used a 'V' file this. This removable part can be constructed for different scale railings too.

    The other end (see picture) uses three shelf support pins guided by three copper pins and the wood block explained above which keeps the wire flush on the board. This end is the starting point when laying the thin wire. Just feed one at a time to the guitar screw and tighten (NOT TOO MUCH).

    Once you have them all in place you can position the pins. I made a thin slider which I used to lifted up the wire off the alloy heat plate enough to slide the posts to the stopper. it can take a while to position everything, but at least nothing moves once you have it all tight!

    The pictures should be enough to make one of these. Not very expensive and certainly a nice simple tool to construct and have available in the workshop.

    The next blog contains a very simple little too to cut the 1mm copper wire post all exactly the same length along with some completed railings using this jig.

    I hope this is useful.

    4 years ago by McCluskey ( Chief Petty Officer 2nd Class)
    Flag
    View All
    1/96 th Scale Railings this made me think how I was going to build these and therefore I came up with an idea that has assisted me enormously in making them.

    I made a simple jig (prototype) in order to build a small section of railings at the required scale. Marking out the railings on a piece of Hard wood first and then sawing a grove for each of the posts to sit in. This stops them from moving about (Incidentally these posts are NOT the correct thickness but used to test the jig..... The correct wire is on order). I also applied a little strip of tape along the lower section to help keep the in place.

    The jig uses tensioning at each end to ensure the 0.5mm wire does not bow/bend. I used elastic bands terminating on small pins. The master board I construct will be completed with a turnbuckle.

    Once the wire is in place a little flux helps the solder to bind to the copper wire. I expect I need to practise a little more but I'm pleased with the outcome. Please do watch this space for pictures of the finished jig.

    I've included a picture of the worm motors for Dave who was asking where to purchase them... I hope this helps you Dave.

    Well underway with the primer paint.

    There has been a slight delay in updating the blog here due to a horrid bout of flu which lasted some two weeks.

    So... Today has been the second day back in the workshop and I've nearly completed the two life boats and the small Whaler. I just need to add a bit more filler and a further coat of primer to these before I build the upper cabin detail.

    I have been experimenting with the worm motor electrics that will drive the gun turrets and the speed is just a tad too quick running 4.8 Volt. I can't post the video here so I will try and post it in the video section pages.

    The whole internal hull cavity has been varnished ready to start fitting power pack platforms etc. I'll post a wiring diagram in due course along with details of the motors, batteries, ESC and Radio Gear.

    The two pictures of the worm motor batteries are wired in Series. These are extremely light and sufficient for running two low drain motors. ๐Ÿ˜Š

    I have lost a week of my life with dreaded flu and after seven days I am just starting to feel a little more human. Perhaps I will be back in the building yard soon. in the mean time....

    I found this shot of the gun turrets and has provided me with a little more detail which isn't shown on the plan. The main bits for me are the ladder at rear and some side panel plates.

    The other photos are also handy for extracting some building information relating to the depth charges and torpedo-tubes.

    ๐Ÿ“ Connecting ESP ?

    HI there

    The light coloured wire needs to go to the top pin as you look down on your RX.

    Naturally the red and black are your power so you can try connecting the power lead to RX and observe which pins they use.

    Hope this helps you.

    Yes Dave I use these sometimes on miniature stuff like this easy to slide into place too.I want the cabin well open so Ill fit 1/32" ply then fill with balsa and sand down. The deck cabin will be built last but very fiddly.
