PS Enterprise by rcmodelboats Commander   Posted: 1 day ago
The boiler is coming along nicely and the deck is glued down. The chain rudder servo is in place.

boiler and struts by rcmodelboats Commander   Posted: 9 days ago
As this model will be Electric a mock boiler will be put in place for aesthetics as it can be seen clearly if you look directly front on, on the real ship. The struts that come out of the hull are for a extra piece of deck that then connects to the paddle boxes.

PS Enterprise by rcmodelboats Commander   Posted: 17 days ago
Hi Joe, paddle wheelers are very interesting such as the waverly but I chose the enterprise as she's pretty much a box and has lots of flat surfaces.

PS Enterprise by rcmodelboats Commander   Posted: 18 days ago
The lip so it is as water light as possible is now made and the motor assembly will be made look like a boiler when fully completed.

1/36 Ady Gil Trimaran Wave Piercer by rcmodelboats Commander   Posted: 22 days ago
Sorry for the late reply, yes I have attached a photo of the real Ady Gil

PS Enterprise by rcmodelboats Commander   Posted: 23 days ago
This model is intended to be used to carry camera such as a go pro. my current camera vessel is a barge and I can't turn the barge without it looking bad on video so I wanted a vessel that can move under its own power but not too fast. The model is 1/20 and will have 2 paddles wheels, one on each side. This particular vessel is currently in Canberra NSW but it used to operate in Uchuka NSW.

Ady Gil, trimaran by rcmodelboats Commander   Posted: 23 days ago
So far I've shaped the wings to the correct shape and water proofed the hull. The pictures of the boat in white were taken before the wing photos

Long Reef PT-50 by rcmodelboats Commander   Posted: 23 days ago
My father is currently building a 1/20 PT50 Rodriquez hydrofoil. It currently a plug mould with 2 fiberglass halves and a left over wooden plug.

One of friends owns this amazing 1/25 model of the Manu Wai PT20 before her exterior refit and a different friend of mine owns the real hydrofoil.

Ionia by rcmodelboats Commander   Posted: 23 days ago
My 1:48 Ionia. This was originally a bad 1980s kit and converted the kit into the Ionia as it resembled her alot.

MV Krait by rcmodelboats Commander   Posted: 23 days ago
[Score: 5/10] 27" MV Krait Single Propellor (3 Blade) - Comments: The MV Krait is a wooden-hulled vessel famous for its use during World War II by the Z Special Unit of Australia during the raid against Japanese ships anchored in Singapore Harbour. The raid was known as Operation Jaywick. The MV Krait is on display at the Australian National Maritime Museum.

1/36 Ady Gil Trimaran Wave Piercer by rcmodelboats Commander   Posted: 4 months ago
This build started out as a crap toy speed boat that resembled the New zealand wave piecer Ady Gil (ex- Earthrace) that was cut in two in 2010 by the illegal japanese whaling vessel Shonan Maru no2. The original speedboat toy was 22 inchs long and had straight wings that connected the pontoons, the wings and the pontoons have been changed and custom made onto the existing hull and the bow has been extended and sharpened (now 26in), the stern has been rounded. The hull has now been gel coated and i have started sanding it back.

Panther 707 by rcmodelboats Commander   Posted: 4 months ago
[Score: 5/10] 22" Panther 707 Single Propellor (2 Blade S Type) Geared - Comments: Panther is a $100 speed boat based on the around the world record holder Earthrace / Ady Gil and is what i am using to make my Ady Gil model.

Workers Hubertus Model Boat Club by rcmodelboats Commander   Posted: 8 months ago
The Hubertus Model Club started with 18 members in 2004. By 2010 we are an incorporated club with over 100 members including ladies and juniors. All are eligible to run boats on the lake. In 2015 the main club was taken over by the Blacktown Workers club with the name changed to Workers Hubertus Country Club and the boat group changed to Workers Hubertus Model Boat Club.

Ionia by rcmodelboats Commander   Posted: 1 year ago
It's not meant to be accurate and by no means a scale representation of Ionia but I agree about the starboard lean and will be corrected. Have a subwaterfilms on YouTube. The weight problem I don't think can be rectified but in future we will take this into account. Thank you for your feedback and merry Christmas Alex and Joe

Ionia by rcmodelboats Commander   Posted: 1 year ago
Battery can be shifted along the hull to vary centre of gravity.

MY Ady Gil by rcmodelboats Commander   Posted: 1 year ago
[Score: 6/10] 26" MY Ady Gil Twin Propellors (4 Blade 25mm) - Comments: This is my current model under construction and is built off a old toy speed boat. The old speed boat Panther had straight wings that connected the pontoons, these were cut off and it has taken lots of time to create the curved wings. I bought another panther to compare the 2.

Ionia by rcmodelboats Commander   Posted: 1 year ago
The model was bought off eBay as a barely started kit from the 80s and was called Ontario. It was a basic model with no detail and so we decided to make it into a tugboat it had a huge resemblance with called Ionia.👍👍👍😊
