Elke HF 408 by Neil-S Seaman   Posted: 2 months ago
[Score: 5/10] 20"/600g Elke HF 408 Capable of 2mph Single Propellor (3 Blade) Direct Drive to a 6v (3 Blade) Powered by NiMH (7.2v) Batteries - Comments: This is a restoration project - my first radio control boat 'Elke', is a small fishing boat with plastic hull, a Graupner kit, purchased in Germany when I was serving in the Army there in 1974. I am restoring it for my grandson. It used to be a good runner with a 6v battery, small electric motor, two servos, one wired so it could move boat in reverse as well as forward. A good little sailor, light in weight and a good pond model. Had to be careful of wave height. Anyway, it has been in the garage for 40 years now so much to do. The inside is a bit of a mess and everything has a layer of dust. I will fit a speed controller and NiMH battery. But nothing too difficult so hope to have it finished for Christmas.

Duke of Cornwall by Neil-S Seaman   Posted: 6 months ago
[Score: 8/10] 51"/7000g Duke of Cornwall Capable of 4mph and a runtime of 30mins Twin Propellors (3 Blade 20mm) Direct Drive to a Torpedo x 2 (3 Blade) Powered by Lead Acid (12v) 6Amp/h Batteries Controlled Through Electrinize (5Amps) ESC - Comments: This was a static scratch built model constructed in 1970s. The boat is a model of the Lizard and Cadgwith lifeboat 'Duke of Cornwall' which saw service for 23 years (1962 - 1985) and saved 93 lives. Model runs very well on the water and achieves a good scale speed when both motors are at full power. 12 volt gel batteries, control by two Electronize speed controllers which plug in independently to receiver. She has a two tone siren. Steering (like the real thing) was rather sluggish, a single blade rudder but it improves by using the two engines. Recent work is to add 3 lifeboatmen (DK Models) and RNLI flag of the right age. I think she now looks ready for her first crewed outing! Hope you like (hint!) the internal pictures now added and close ups of the crew.
