    Instead of making yourself the tubes, why not use Plastic tubing such as Evergreen. It comes in many different sizes and of course is light in weight.๐Ÿ˜Ž

    ๐Ÿ“ Spraying/hand painting
    3 years ago by overthesea ( Able Seaman)

    I have had the same problem, but to solve it, I stripped it all down and then used EzeKote and their micro fibre glass cloth. Super finish and I highly recommend it. You have to take the hull or whatever down to bare wood though or it will peel off. Will use the same method on all my modelss in future. Hopes this helps.

    HI Stephen. Thanks very much. Your answer helped me understand the formula. All those other people who told me to charge for 1.5 hours were obviously wrong. the batteries would of probably lasted for about five minutes or less. Again thanks very much. ๐Ÿ‘

    I have five D cells of 1.2volts each, and are 2800mA/h. Have wired them together to make a six volt pack. Can someone please tell me how long they need to be charged, If the charger Is set at 0.5ยฃ I have been told several different times by various people. Some say charge for 1.5 hours, others say for 5.6 hours. I know there Is a formula of how to work It out, but being as thick as I am I can't work It out. Someone please tell me the correct length of time on charge.
    Thank you.

    ๐Ÿ“ Fixture on Range Safety Launches.
    11 years ago by overthesea ( Able Seaman)
    Flag
    HI Peter,
    Many thanks for your reply. I looked at the website you suggested,and another link from that one. Scanning the pictures on those sites I have enough info to make a drawing and build the missing part. Once again thank you.
    overthesea. Hi Everyone,
    I have a couple of questions that I am hoping someone can help me with.
    About 36 years ago I built a 42 inch model of a range safety launch. The model has been gathering dust and cobwebs in my loft for the past 15 years. On moving house, when clearing the loft I found the poor thing. I've now washed and clean her up, and the motors run perfectly and the navigation lights still light up.Somewhere, (probably still in an unpacked box), are the plans but I cannot find them.
    The questions are about the fixture on the foremast.
    Can anyone tell me what it is? it is like a double ended basket, and can anyone help in a close up drawing or photo's of it. it appears to be the only bit missing from the model.
    Any help would be very much appreciated.
    Thank you.
    Overthesea.
