    (Pleasure Craft) "Jessica" A Sea Scout renovation
    Originally built by my Dad in the early sixties, fitted then with a Taycol Target and two very wet lead acid accumulators. First renovation about 26 years ago for my daughter Jessica, fitted with a 6V Decaperm. Performance was VERY sedate. Perhaps fitting for a Broads Cruiser? The Taycol will now go into the Danish fish cutter I am currently renovating. First two pics show her condition, incl. engine room, last year after about 25 years in the cellar. Last three pictures show current condition after extensive renovation, see 'Build Blog Jessica' and refit. Video shows her Sea Trial end of May 2018 https://youtu.be/b0BWJ3duzDw Now just cockpit fit to do and suitable crew to find. Can't 'select' Speed here as she wasn't equipped with GPS! But quick! Now she planes well so I guess I've turned her into a Sport Fishing Boat!? Rating I also can't select for myself, that's something for you guys to do! ;-) (Motor: Propdrive 2830 1000kV) (ESC: Quicrun 16BL30 Hobbywing) (5/10) Update: Crew have reported for duty๐Ÿ˜‰
    (Naval Ship) HMS Belfast
    Performance not yet known, still in the fitting out dock. Power is actually 2 x 6V 4Ah. ESC will be Graupner Navy V30R. Maybe 2 for differential control to support rudder. I've left 'Number of Props' as Please Select cos Belfast has 4 and this ain't an option!! Long term plans for smoke (borrowed from model railway kit!) lighting and gun control. Have already bought magicians 'Flash Paper' for main battery gun flashes. Ignition using old 'out of work' glow-plugs? Any ideas welcome :-) Ship is Graupner Premium line. NOT IMPRESSED with quality of cast resin parts, lots of air bubble depressions :-/ Fair amount of rework / repaint necessary! (Motor: Speed 540 x 4) (ESC: Navy VR30 or Viper Marine. Trials on 40MHz then 2.4GHz DX6) (7/10)
    (Naval Ship) Graf Spee
    It's a Graupner premium line ATR! ;-/ Wanted some 'quick fun' while working on more complex constructions (HMS Hotspur H Class Destroyer 1936, 1:72 and Type IA U26 also 1936). Didn't work out that way! On first test of motors and ESC I discovered that the shafts were so badly fitted that they were binding ;-( So back in dry dock for some hull surgery! That's why some inputs are missing above. Plan is to gradually add functions and special effects; lighting, gun controls, magicians Flash Paper for gun flashes. Maybe fired using my old glow-plugs!!?? Now I'm freshly retired I have more time for this ;-), as long as Gisela doesn't drag me off around the world too often ;-) I also have HMS Belfast from the same series (approx 1:128) also awaiting fitting out. More soon - don't hold your breath please ;-) in the pipeline is some 'Plastic Magic' with Ark Royal, Hood and Bismark all to 350 scale ca 70-80cm. Sorry been in Munich for over 30 years don't think in inches any more (except when buying mag wheels for the chariot!) Cheers, and as my German boating friends say 'Immer ein Handbreite Wasser unterm Kiel!) = I wish you always a hand-widths water under your keel. I sail on the lake in the Ostpark near me in Munich. Very convenient, right next to the Biergarten! ๐Ÿ˜Ž (Motor: 600) (ESC: Graupner Navy V30R) (5/10)

    " if they have a computer to send a question, then, in my view, they have the means to find the answer for themselves. "

    Hi Martin,
    I also basically asked him for an explanation, and explained that we have 'few' rules as such - that we rely on our members good taste.
    Just all in German as he apparently lives in Berlin.
    And he didn't react to or query the first deletion.

    Cheers, Doug ๐Ÿ˜Ž

    Bill,
    I do hope your son is on the mend.
    Can understand what you are going through, had a similar experience with my daughter several years ago. Fortunately I recognised the symptoms and got her to the hospital just in time.

    My best wishes to you all.
    Doug.

    I thank you as well Rick ๐Ÿ‘
    and heartily agree with Martin, who is getting to know how it was for me for a few years before he came on board๐Ÿ˜‰ and probably also for Ed before I joined him.
    Meantime Ed seems to have drifted off to the 'Buggy Boys' ๐Ÿ˜ Hope he soon gets bored with that. I miss him.
    I also found that the computer was beginning to take over my life, sitting up most of the night doing research for folks all over the world (many of whom never bothered to respond or tell us if they ever did anything with the info, which can be disheartening) but my gratitude to all who did respond ๐Ÿ˜€ As Martin said, even if not logged in we tend to leave the Haunted Fish Tank 3.0 running just to keep an eye on what's happening on the site.๐Ÿค“
    "It's just something that we do" , coz we believe it is worth doing ๐Ÿ˜‰
    Carry on, and enjoy your modelling crew ๐Ÿ‘

    Hi Nerys,
    "there is a general shortage of some computer hardware etc. What do we blame, covid or Brexit?"
    Basically the answer is Covid ๐Ÿค”
    Main reason behind it is the Covid Lockdowns in various Chinese ports and elsewhere, no ship can/could enter or leave.
    Which has led to thousands of containers in the wrong place, not being able to unload/load.
    It's not just us, any industry which uses chips (without fish๐Ÿ˜); i.e. anything to do with computers in any shape or form (including mobile phones and RC gearโ˜น๏ธ), car makers (I pine for the days when I could check all my car electrics with a multimeter๐Ÿค”) is affected.
    Apparently charter prices for containers are going through the roof, as are freight costs due to containers having to be shuffled around the world empty!
    All this is going to raise prices of all sorts of stuffโ˜น๏ธ
    Sorry, this one we can't blame on Boris ๐Ÿ™„

    "so that i dose not suddenly part company from the rest of the boat."
    Coupla small neodymium magnets should fix that Martin.
    I used 5mm round ones to hold the cabin roof on my Sea Scout.
    Pretty sure that Rob and Sy also use them, amongst others.

    Or, since it's on the stern, you could use the Filler caps (got mine from Krick Riva fittings range), like I used on my Sea Scout to fix down the hatch over my rudder servo.
    https://www.krickshop.de/Accessories-Spare-Parts/Accessories...
    I drilled and tapped them for 3mm, inserted 3mm studs (cut from bolts๐Ÿ˜‰), and epoxy glued 3mm nuts into recesses in the flange.
    Forward edge is held down with two 5mm diam. magnets.
    I also put a very thin layer of silicon round the flanges.
    No leaks, even with a prolonged 'reverse gear' test ๐Ÿ˜€

    Ref 'nose down rear end up' ๐Ÿ˜ฎ
    Thought it reminded me of something-

    "All along the backwater,
    Through the rushes tall,
    Ducks are a-dabbling,
    Up tails all!๐Ÿ˜

    Ducksโ€™ tails, drakesโ€™ tails,
    Yellow feet a-quiver,
    Yellow bills all out of sight
    Busy in the river!

    Slushy green undergrowth
    Where the roach swimโ€”
    Here we keep our larder,
    Cool and full and dim.

    Everyone for what he likes!
    We like to be
    Heads down, tails up,
    Dabbling free!

    High in the blue above
    Swifts whirl and callโ€”
    We are down a-dabbling
    Up tails all!"

    Wind in the Willows, Kenneth Grahame.

    In this case I suspect it was the absence of an overweight bear at the tiller that shifted the CoG forward ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Good start Robert ๐Ÿ‘
    Take it slow, read the instructions (3 times๐Ÿ˜), and dry-fit twice, before you stick anything, and you'll be fine ๐Ÿคž
