    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)

    I think you have the same disease as me Joe.

    It`s not serious, but has a rather nasty side affect. Wifewantingtoknowwhenyouaregoingtotidyyourmessitis.
    This is much more serious and hard to find a cure.
    Good luck with all of those projects.

    Hi Steve.
    I bought the same. I was a little disappointed with some of the quality. Went all the way with motors and props but then faltered on prop tubes and shafts. Three shafts were bent. Deans said they would replace but I bought quality replacements myself as I did not want a repeat of the roughly cut off pieces of scrap they supplied.
    Peter.

    Hi Steve.
    I am sure I have seen this video on Youtube. Now I know who built it.
    I hope I can build something similar. Yours looks superb.
    I am pretty clumsy so I fear what you said about parts falling off. I will have to be careful.

    I plan to retire in the not too distant future so have purchased several projects whilst I still can. i also have a few on the go now.
    I am just about finishing the Krick Police Launch.
    I am half way through the Robbe Dusseldorf Fire Boat.
    I am half way through a Revell Gato Submarine conversion to RC. I am working on the Water Tight Compartment at the moment.
    I am refitting my first ever model I made 35 years ago of the Aerokits Patrol Torpedo boat.
    New models to start after retirement are the Model Slipways 1:16 scale Tamar Lifeboat, The Trumpeter 1:200 Hood conversion to RC with all upgrades, the Aero-naut Diva and the Vintage Model Works Crash Tender.
    I think all of these will keep me going for several years.πŸ‘

    My first little disaster, no casualties though, was the first and last trial of my Aerokits Patrol Torpedo boat. I built it over 30 years ago. Large MPA motor. Worked very well. Put it on the water. Chug, chug, chug, chug. Very disappointing. 1MPH. It has never run since. But soon. Nice powerful brushless going in soon. Probably hit something and sink.😁

    Hi Nerys.
    I think you would be ok but for a few funny looks but keep at least 2 M away from others.
    On a personal note though, I think most members would wish you to stay at home so that you do not put yourself at unnecessary risk. We want you both to stay well.
    Second thoughts, with your underlying condition, Stay At Home.
    Peter.

    UK is pretty much on lock-down from now. Essential services only and some workers who have no choice of working from home. Enforced by the Police but only officially after an emergency powers bill is passed in Parliament later this week. Shop only when necessary with all other shops closed from now. Pretty much the same as SA and NZ but from today.
    Keep well all.
    Peter.
