Aeronaut Pilot Boat by onetenor Commander   Posted: 21 hours ago
Early in this thread I saw Depron mentioned as being the material of the build Was this so ? If so what glue was used in the build. UHU por or similar brand is usually recommended.Re Glueing metal to plastic good old Gorilla Glue is the one Much cheaper then those others and has good gap filling too.👍

Paint removal by onetenor Commander   Posted: 6 days ago
If the deck is also GRP the best bet is to plank it with fine veneer strips then varnish that. If it needs filler between the planks use a black one. Carbon black or similar added to the filler .Brown would also look smart.Artists powder paint could also be used and be cleaner to handle.Lite filler from B&Q is very good .Light and easy sanding and I believe slightly flexible so should not crack out.

How do I resolve my varnish problem? by onetenor Commander   Posted: 6 days ago
A layer of the lightest glass cloth applied with Ronseal water based floor varnish / sealer.Rubbed down between coats. /Use enough coats to fill the weave / grain of the cloth . . this should still show the grain through the coats and leave a brilliant shine. this can be polished with T/cut once thoroughly hard if so desired.

Sonar is right. Do not try to sand it ALL off as you risk damaging the gel coat of GRP Almost impossible to rectify .BE WARNED! John

Metal to metal noise on 2.4 mhz by onetenor Commander   Posted: 6 days ago
Is metal to metal noise a problem with 2.4mhz as it was on 3.5 ?

Re buying new crystals I don't think they are too dear. Last time i looked they averaged £ 6/ 7 For Sanwa and Futaba Xtals

Glue Applicator by onetenor Commander   Posted: 8 days ago
If not Bang Good try Gear Best LOL👍😁😁😁

Glue Applicator by onetenor Commander   Posted: 8 days ago
Not quite the same thing but something useful When using say a Bottle of Aliphatic or P.V.A. or similar glue it can get abit messy with lack of control of the flow. Bang good sell small plastic dispenser bottles which you can decant you glue into from your bigger bottle.Makes things a lot neater. Very cheap too

Thanks for all the advice boys but it looks as though it is not going to be needed now

Just a thought but have you got matching crystals.It is easy to look and say oh yes got crystals without checking for a match .Sorry if granny is already sucking eggs.👍😉😁

Couplings by onetenor Commander   Posted: 13 days ago
Talking of brushed motors I like the /Graupner 400's /600's/800' s Lovely motors. I think.

Couplings by onetenor Commander   Posted: 13 days ago
Yes I meant a permanent magnet motor ( Permag ) and know there are no field coils.Hence my puzzlement regarding reversing

Couplings by onetenor Commander   Posted: 14 days ago
Just thinking ! If C/V joints are available for model cars it may be possible to make up a coupling for a boat. Anyone know if these are available?

Couplings by onetenor Commander   Posted: 14 days ago
Those circuit pics are small How do you couple up to the field coils or with a premag motor?

Couplings by onetenor Commander   Posted: 14 days ago
Re those doughnut couplings for the Elan etc they now have a version done with two C/V joints and a solid bar between them.A pity there is nothing like it for model boats

Couplings by onetenor Commander   Posted: 14 days ago
On reflection it could have been two bolts making the coupling up🤓

Couplings by onetenor Commander   Posted: 14 days ago
Yep those leather couplings could also be rubber too. some were home made too. Relatively simple to do even with hand tools👍

You wouldn't catch me kissing the backstone of a toilet as that is what the Blarney stone really is.I know it is centuries since it last was used as such but I still don't fancy it Ta🤔

Counter Rotating Props by onetenor Commander   Posted: 15 days ago
Experiment is my suggestion to see which suits your boat best. Goodluck👍

What happened to the WEM paints?? by onetenor Commander   Posted: 15 days ago
I liked The Wizard too

Couplings by onetenor Commander   Posted: 15 days ago
Whatever happened to the couplings comprising two rubber discs with a bonded in coupling in the centre and 4 I think it was bolts joining the discs together?

Make what you can and buy what you have to by onetenor Commander   Posted: 1 month ago
If looking for good low cost ply log onto the Model Flying site and look for the thread by Enrico Eglasias I got a sample from him and it is really good stuff and low cost. Light and strong.A bit darker colour than pine ply but gives a nice colour when clear .varnished.I think the thread title is something like Plywood Supplies or samples. Different thicknesses available. Regards John👍

Fantastic Plastic by onetenor Commander   Posted: 1 month ago
B&Q stock all colours of paint and looking at their corporate colour I would be surprised if they didn't stock orange paint Humbrol do /did a lovely orange and a flourescent one too. If all else fails go to an angling shop as they stock it for float 👍😊makers

Marine Lake Rhyl by onetenor Commander   Posted: 2 months ago
Just a thought but have any of the N Wales lads /lasses tried using the Marine Lake in Rhyl?👍👍. I don't know about the legality etc but it could be useful
