    I promise I will finish a boat project before I start another......Maybe.
    Members Harbour
    Pilot Boat.
    I have really enjoyed building this little boat. The painting, as always, I found a challenge. I am really pleased with the performance and the finished result. It has taken me around six months to build only being able to fit time in around a busy work schedule. Looking forward to the next one now.
    (Racing Boat) Genesis
    I bought this boat to give me some running time whilst I complete a major overhaul of my Patrol Torpedo Boat and build my Police Launch kit. I plan to try it for the first time next week in my local river. I would like to thank Doug (RNinMunich) for all his help to get the boat connected electrically as I have not used brushless before and needed to complete quickly. The boat is on it`s way Doug. Note. it is faster than 24km/h. Ran out of options. The instructions say 55km/h. (Motor: 3674 2074KV) (ESC: Hoddyking 125A Water Cooled) (9/10)
    (Naval Ship) Patrol Torpedo Boat
    I built the boat many years ago. I am about to embark on a full refurbishment. I intend to re-paint and add all new guns and deck items. (Motor: MFA Marlin) (ESC: Futaba) (6/10)

    This will not help too much but my current build, Dusseldorf, has four rudders and they are set to turn exactly the same together.

    Both you and Ed will be way ahead of me. I will not be home until 23rd August so I have to wait until then to have a go. I think you have made a good choice Steve. According to a mutual friend of Ed’s and mine, once we get the hang of printing, a print nozzleupgrade will be essential. Until then though,let the play commence.πŸ€ͺ

    I bought the Trumpeter Hood along with Deans 4 screw RC package. A tidy sum for both including this surcharge, but still cheaper than elsewhere. The kit they supply for the upgrade is generally ok, except for the motor mounts, which are very cheap vac forms, and the prop shafts. All of the other parts are from MPA And Roboesh and the like. The prop shafts were a rough piece of brass tube with a threaded coat hanger in the middle. Needless to say, three of the four were useless. Deans were far from helpful so I purchased new ones myself to save the heart ache. I will not buy from them again. They seriously need to improve their customer service.😏

    Hi Steve.
    The Creality Ender 3 is a very good starting printer which Ed has bought. He is having a lot of fun with it and started printing samples as soon as he had assembled it, which did not take him long. The cost is around Β£200 or less now as it has just been replaced with the V2 version which has a lot of updates done to it. I have just purchased this machine and expect its arrival soon. The V2 Ender 3 is around Β£250 but I think the extra would be worth paying now as some of the upgrades, such as a glass table, are essential.
    Peter.

    It must add another level of interest when building a model if there is real history behind it. Good luck with this one Nerys if you decide to continue.
    My surname is Vosper. You would have thought I would have nautical connections really but the nearest I get to it is the shower.πŸ˜€

    I will be following with great interest. I bought a 32 exercise Arduino starter pack some time ago which is still unused. Time to get cracking I think. I am in quarantine now so I should find some time to start.
    Thanks for all of your time you are giving us Jonathan. It is much appreciated.

    I am going to Hungary, just outside of Budapest. My wife is Hungarian so we are "going home". My cover picture is the bottom of the garden. Cannot wait. I have built a shipyard there. A 3M square shed.
    I will try and control the environment there. Humidity is usually quite low. Do you enjoy masking or is it just me that it drives mad. Does anybody like masking? Please can some kind soul tell me how to mask the deck close around the gunwales. It seems quite difficult. Next job on Dusseldorf.😁
    Ooops! Sorry, I meant Bulwark. Good job I wasn`t a sailor. I would be painting the wrong parts.😐

    Fantastic finish rob. I wish I had the patience to get these results. The atmosphere in the area that I paint is not perfect as it never sees the sun. Things will be a lot better when I move in to my retirement house next year. Loads of sun from March to November then.πŸ˜ŠπŸ‘
