    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. (Motor: 180 brushed motor) (ESC: Hnadmade by arduino) (8/10)

    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. (Motor: 180 20000rpm 7.4v motor) (ESC: 20A w/brake brushed esc) (5/10)

    Hello Stephan,

    I guess you're asking about the plank color.
    I just varnished it several times till i love the color on the boat. When it becomes red, i sprayed clear coat. Just these 2.

    Hello,mturpin013.
    It takes time to print a boat in 3d printer. If you take this boat,it has a 2mm thick hull. Took 2 days approx.
    And if you build a fiberglass hull thats very rigid. Wooden hulls also. But a 3d printed hull aint that strong. I put a layer of fiberglass in it. And the part's were together using CA glue.

    I'm currently building a 610mm sports fisherman. The front part takes 14 hours to print. Will try to make a blog with it. Wish me luck!

    Scratch built motor gun boat from Bangladesh.
    Tried my best to upgrade it into a brushless one. First attempt was brushed and it was kind of a pain in the ass.
    It runs far better now.

    Hello everyone,this is my gentleman's cruiser.
    3d printed hull, supposed to be a motor launch. I moved away the enclosed bridge space and kept it open with front windshield only.
    Did a planking job with balsa wood of 1mm. 2300KV flash hobby motor with 30A brushless ESC.
    Normally use a lipo of 850maH for a 10minutes run.
    It has also a 2cell 2000mah Li-ion setup inside.
    Ask me anything if you want to know.
    Thank you, everyone!

    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.

    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 😎

    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.

    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 πŸ˜‰. 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 πŸ™„πŸ˜­

    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.🀐

    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 havingπŸ€”

    Are those fuel pipe? And you must have used something to make the motor shaft thick so it matches the tube, right ?

    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 😊

    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 ?😭

    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 connectoΕ•. 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!πŸ˜†
