Putty and sanding by Sakibian Lieutenant   Posted: 24 days ago
Did some putty job on both sides. Still a lot sanding to do. And put some white paint inside. It will make it look bit clean and also work as a layer. Will prevent the water reaching ply. Beside of it a small cabin cruiser.

Sports cruiser "ALI" by Sakibian Lieutenant   Posted: 24 days ago
I actually drop small amount first then i use my 120number sand paper on the joint to genarate some ply powder then put another drip on it. The powder works great. But i will try your idea 😎

Sports cruiser "ALI" by Sakibian Lieutenant   Posted: 25 days ago
Planking by 2mm pvc. Its not smooth. I normally use the paint putty,with cement powder. Its good and waterproof.

Sports cruiser "ALI" by Sakibian Lieutenant   Posted: 27 days ago
Did some planking by 2mm pvc. Port side done. Doesnt look very bad eh? 😄

Sports cruiser "ALI" by Sakibian Lieutenant   Posted: 27 days ago
Hey Joe! Thanks for your reply. I do agree with you here about the CA glue. We call it superglue here. I have a plan to cover the whole boat by painting. But i think pvc works great with CA glue. It gets stuck so fast that soetimes my fingers are stuck with it🤐 Some pictures when my younger cousin broke it. But i fixed it again. It was a pain in the butt thoug.

Sports cruiser "ALI" by Sakibian Lieutenant   Posted: 27 days ago
Started this sports cruiser 2 days ago. Here we dont have balsa so im using whats available. I hsed ply for my keel and bulkheads. Ply doesnt work great with ca glue, but its okay. I will use pvc for the planking. I hope i will get some ideas and you will fix me whereverim wrong.

Fairmile D 1/24 Scale Build by Sakibian Lieutenant   Posted: 29 days ago
Reilly Many thanks! Learning everyday. Normally i used to have smaller models. I do love small ones actuall, and i dont have a car so i build mobile ones. My plan is to build a 1:35 s boot. Doesnt have to be that accurate, im a noob so clsoe will be good enough. Haha. Cheeres!

Cabin structure by Sakibian Lieutenant   Posted: 30 days ago
looking great buddy! Keep it comin!

Fairmile D 1/24 Scale Build by Sakibian Lieutenant   Posted: 30 days ago
Hey o Reilly! Yep saw the plans! Can you help me with something? Should I print the plans then cut the cross section by myself? Or any other ideas? How did your friend built that one? Did he buy the kit or Scratch built? Regards and thanks!

Fairmile D 1/24 Scale Build by Sakibian Lieutenant   Posted: 30 days ago
Hello Reilly, Sorry for my late reply. The link you gave me, https://model-boats.com/sys_files/ajax/link_out?url=http%3A%... I think they sells kits. I'm afraid I would like to 0- 100% myself 😉. But still, thanks a lot. I can watch and learn to build one. I just fear schnellboote bcz the hull looks terrifying. The torpedo hols, aft deck etc. If it was flat would be much easier 🙄😭

Fairmile D 1/24 Scale Build by Sakibian Lieutenant   Posted: 1 month ago
The schnellboote looks stunning! Where did you get the criss section design? Would love to build one of them

March'71 by Sakibian Lieutenant   Posted: 1 month ago
Scratch Built patrol boat of BN. Cruises pretty smooth and nice. A bit heavy I guess, put a lot stuff there.

March'71 by Sakibian Lieutenant   Posted: 1 month ago
[Score: 8/10] 18"/500g March'71 Capable of 9mph and a runtime of 10mins Twin Propellors (3 Blade 25mm) Direct Drive to a 180 brushed motor (3 Blade) Powered by LiPoly (11.1v) 1Amp/h Batteries Controlled Through Hnadmade by arduino (30Amps) ESC - Comments: The BEST thing about this one is, she's very smooth on the run. Decent power, makes it more fun. When it turns with speed, gets down like a bike. So that's the time when it leaks a tiny amount of water. Bcz it's not waterproof on the deck. Can take 2s-3s Lipo. Bcz the motors are 3s rated only. Have a plan to change them into better Mabuchi ones.

Boat shaft connectors (which stuffs to use and which is good) by Sakibian Lieutenant   Posted: 3 months ago
Hey Dodgy, thanks for the idea number 3, I will surely try that! And I hope this will work insha allah! And those links will be very helpful. I hope those silicone are strong 💪💪

Boat shaft connectors (which stuffs to use and which is good) by Sakibian Lieutenant   Posted: 3 months ago
Thank you Ed! I will try better this time. This helped me a lòt, learned some great stuffs. I will show you when I do that!

Boat shaft connectors (which stuffs to use and which is good) by Sakibian Lieutenant   Posted: 3 months ago
Thank you dodgy!! I needed this. I was always telling myself that a slight misalignment is okay bcz I'm going to use flexible coupler, so it's okay. There I might have done something wrong! Can you please give me the link,of that silicone tube that your using? Or I mean what kind of tube they are, where they are used😊 And yes I ment a lot vibrations by earthquake. Sorry for that. At first I used some thin silicone tubes also, they weren't great.🤐

Boat shaft connectors (which stuffs to use and which is good) by Sakibian Lieutenant   Posted: 3 months ago
This is the boat I was trying to finish, Ed! I'm not very accurate at these so I face this problems. I'm quite young so when I build, I do hurry sometimes. I think this is my biggest fault when I do modeling. The motor shaft is 2mm and the drive shaft is 3mm. Thank you for the link ! Can you help me a bit more to know which size they Are? I can't find anything about the hole size they are having🤔

Boat shaft connectors (which stuffs to use and which is good) by Sakibian Lieutenant   Posted: 3 months ago
Are those fuel pipe? And you must have used something to make the motor shaft thick so it matches the tube, right ? I had these but no fun. They are like earthquakes

Boat shaft connectors (which stuffs to use and which is good) by Sakibian Lieutenant   Posted: 3 months ago
These are the latex tube I bought from Ali express.kind of flexible rubber tubes,strong but not extreamly string. Used them on some places , fast spinning motors doesn't match. But my tug works well. The problem is where I live, there's no hobby shop here. The closest is China. Think that! I live in Bangladesh 😊

Boat shaft connectors (which stuffs to use and which is good) by Sakibian Lieutenant   Posted: 3 months ago
Hello all! I have been modeling for some time now. It's been quite fantastic everywhere but this one spot I really suffer. First times when I was kid I used pens and drilled them as shaft connectors. Then I found out about latex rubber tubes. They works good . But when I use latex in fast boats they are ripped. I used some uni joints from Ali express and they are not that good. They are shaky and after sometimes the joints gets loose. The materials ain't that good. Normally I do build small boats. Between 50-30 cm . Here I need help, what else is good as joints and where can I get bad ass universal joints ?😭

March'71 by Sakibian Lieutenant   Posted: 3 months ago
165footer job from Bangladesh navy. Armed with 1 37mm Chinese naval cannon (which I replaced with type 76F variant), 2 orlicons. Actually used to patrol costal area here , also used in coast guard. The class name is padma class patrol vessel, designed and made by BN. Tried to make its rc version in 1:110th scale(I'm not great like you guys so please help me do better and suggest me where I can do better). Length 45cm, beam 7cm. Powered with dual 180. The only thing I'm suffering is motor shaft connectoŕ. Those two universal joints I bought are not good enough for smooth rotation. They vibrates. So I used silicone tubes. Now I'm using latex rubber tubes . Any suggestions or plan what I can use in peace!😆

Ashes by Sakibian Lieutenant   Posted: 4 months ago
[Score: 5/10] 15"/500g Ashes Capable of 10mph and a runtime of 10mins Single Propellor (3 Blade 30mm) Direct Drive to a 180 20000rpm 7.4v motor (3 Blade) Powered by LiPoly (7.4v) Batteries Controlled Through 20A w/brake brushed esc (20Amps) ESC - Comments: 3d printed hull, makes it a bit heavy but that's good when it runs fast. It's actually too fast for the scale. Can't run it on full speed. It literally stands up on full speed. Medium throttle is enough to make your face shine. The boats small. Can't take more than 2s 600mah but can 1s 1000 can be used.

What did you use as rail stands? Those looks really beautiful!😍😍

Ashes the scratch built MTB by Sakibian Lieutenant   Posted: 4 months ago
Happy that you liked the video , will try to post more videos. And please don't call me sir haha? I'm still 23. About the harbour , when I registered here I didn't find my country (Bangladesh), can you please do something while your an Admiral 😛

Ashes the scratch built Motor Torpedo Boat by Sakibian Lieutenant   Posted: 4 months ago
I found this hull at thingiverse last year. I printed the hull from a local shop and rest was handmade. Firstly I bought a 2426 4200kv brushless 2-3s which was too powerful and too heavy for the boat size. The length is 38cm. And the 30Amp esc was also too big for it's size. After that I tried small 180 brushed motor with 20A brushed esc w/brake. It was perfect (still it's heavy😂). The bridge and deck is made by 1.75mm pvc,torpedos are made of wooden pencil. Small battery space takes a 2s 500mah lipo. 30mm 3blade propeller. YouTube video link is here: https://youtu.be/KZdmZ8_Z0IE

Wonderful stuffs. What's the pump to flow waters faster?

USCG POINT GLAS by Sakibian Lieutenant   Posted: 4 months ago
Superb work. 🤗🤗 running both the motors by a single esc?

MAS 562 update by Sakibian Lieutenant   Posted: 4 months ago
Great crafting. Did you make the hull all by yourself or you had a plan sheet😁

SHERSCHEN P206 by Sakibian Lieutenant   Posted: 4 months ago
Woah that's pretty!! Do you have the plan sheet?
