Re soldering there are many tutorials on line showing all aspects of soldering but basically means clean surfaces correct fluxes and solder and above all sufficient heat.👍

Yes john you are right I didn't think of that. A dock diorama ? Wingco that might keep you busy for a while.😜

Trying to trace a boat by onetenor Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 7 days ago
I've got one in the style of a "Cigarette" racer Twin screw detachable cabin for access . The legend on Tx is super at top and RC Speed Ability across bottom It's white with red and blue stripes. Nimh cells for everything. 40 ,3 Meg it I recall.👍 This may help although full scale. https://www.google.com/search?q=cigarette+racing+boats+for+s... I hope you have the time to look through All of them. Find one you like then see if someone does a kit /plan whatever. Good hunting.😁 PS Just thought ! have a look at Bang Good and Gear Best sites under speedboats etc.🤓

Bismark by onetenor Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 7 days ago
Well is ANYONE going to do it? Bismark part work. I consider these part works the most expensive way to build a model there is.🤔👍 The die cast hull in sections I assume.👍

Folding Bulwark????! by onetenor Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 10 days ago
Sorry Toby I should have said scroll down to the forgotten books line. then when you click on that it automatically downloads in pdf. In my case in Adobe.A very useful file etc. Sorry for the mixup. when you open the file you should find some stuff.👍

vice suitable for Dremel Workstation by onetenor Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 11 days ago
I have the same problem but at present I'm using a pair of vice (Mole) grips clamped to my lap tray by G -Clamp on the stand base. Bit unwieldy but works 👍👍

https://www.google.com/search?ei=xc9gXPmHL9Kf1fAPmr6I8Ag&q=+... If you click on this one when it comes up you will get an immediate pdf download of very interesting stuff. I hope this helps.👍🤓 This also may help. https://archive.org/stream/shipsboatstheir00blocgoog/shipsbo... It mentions folding bulwarks and their stowage.👍

I've been given a very smart camera will do video as well as stills. Too clever for me by half. It has disc to load into my comp to enable all sorts of things like loading film from the camera. Also has a chip/ memory card. what i want to do is upload pics from the mem card without loading the disc? Is this possible?👍

Nice looks like it's at back of the old hangars.👍

Good buy from Lidl by onetenor Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 15 days ago
Good idea Colin but you don't get the discount offers on line. Re the discs left over stock is sold off for buttons. Keep your eyes open for them. Look on the reduced table(s)👍👍

Sea Queen - strakes by onetenor Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 15 days ago
I found when fitting spray rails to use triangular stock like trailing edge section for aircraft wings. It looks neat and bends more easily than square stock.Fitted thin edge up the right angled face forming the deflecting face. Filled and sanded it blends well into the hull. Maybe not true scale but looks nice. It comes in many sizes and suppliers.SLEC is one for starters and Hobbies is another. Balsa Cabin another. Just loads if you use uncle Google.👍

Folding Bulwark????! by onetenor Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 15 days ago
IIRC means If I Recall Correctly. No the hinges are vertical A La Park Gates The closing edges secured by a rod or bar dropped through holes in welded on overlapping plates with holes in them. The hinges are made likewise. Plates with holes in supported by round bars welded to plates welded to the side. Maybe to a rib or stanchion for strength. The "gates" opened outwards. I hope you can follow this and it helps.👍 P.S. Look VERY closely at BLUEBIRD'S photo. Click on it to enlarge it.🤓

The "OZONE" smell is as partner said ,at least in part. As they bed in they arc a little and burn off any oil on the commutator. Very common on model trains. It will settle down with use.👍

Folding Bulwark????! by onetenor Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 16 days ago
I've just remembered I have seen these folding bulwarks on cattle boats in Birkenhead.As I recall the hinges were simple hole and pin type like a gate hinge. Held closed by a rod through overlapping plates with holes in IIRC. I don't recall the rails though as I only saw them open.👍

What scale by onetenor Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 17 days ago
Which actual FPB is it?.We need to know that to find the length. At 1/2" to the foot 34" gives 68 feet for example👍👍

1950s sea commander refurb. by onetenor Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 17 days ago
One thing I have done which takes a bit of effort is to use card to make an approximate frame/ bulkhead as near as you can. Then trim and try until it fits as it should then trace onto wood of choice. Cut that out marginally oversize and sand/plane to fit and once happy glue in place. You should be able to work it out from the plans. Cut two sets and keep one for future reference.👍😤

Folding Bulwark????! by onetenor Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 18 days ago
It's a gangway access point I think👍

B&Q tester pots are a bit bigger and they mix to match. In fact i think they are called Match Pots.👍

I had one f these with a diesel in it .Great model and it looks like yours will be too. Good luck with it and I'll follow with interest. Wish my wife had joined me in the hobbies but she just called my models toys.👍

Rib Moulding by onetenor Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 27 days ago
I need to cast a new wing rib to replace one missing. Using remaining one as the form. They fit together. 👍Any ideas what to use?
