Glue guns by Tall Paul Lieutenant   Posted: 5 months ago
Hi folks, Any one had experience of using glue guns ... Are they OK for glueing wood, plastic and metal to same and to each different material ... Are joints water proof ? Thanks.

Sad News by Tall Paul Lieutenant   Posted: 6 months ago
Hi Ed, You mentioned water ingress, I carry to boating pond a number of bits and tools, one of which is a > 100 ml Syringe ... There is one on Amazon with a tube to reach into difficult to access areas. The advice about glue for plastic to pastic seems helpful, I had similar problem of trying to obtain water proof join of plastic and wood. Best of luck, Paul.

International Model Boat Show by Tall Paul Lieutenant   Posted: 10 months ago
Dreadful rain Sat morning but the 2 hr journey was worth it. Some fantastic models on show, way above my skill level. Found planet Rx which was lucky as they may not be making anymore ! Product for someone else to manufacture on licence ? What we need is an exhibition like this on the south Coast say Southampton ... Would be in reach for Cornwall and Kent

46" RAF Crash Tender new kit by Tall Paul Lieutenant   Posted: 11 months ago
Hi Mike, You mention that you gave a 900 what voltage and type of prop do you have as I have 900 also running with 12 v and two blade prop but do not get the speed ... Hope you can help.

34" AEROKITS FIRE/CRASH TENDER by Tall Paul Lieutenant   Posted: 11 months ago
Hi, I have 46" fire boat also and sail not far away at Highbridge Farm. Perhaps we'll meet up next year ...

Rigging wanted by Tall Paul Lieutenant   Posted: 12 months ago
Many thanks for your help folks, Chicks, cletes, Clovis, cotter pins, sewage studs, turnbuckle, bottle screws etc who'd have thought that there were so many parts to rigging .... I've still to identify the part that fixes the boom to the main mast .... someone suggested to just use two eyepins .... Need to work out sizes next before purchase ... Thanks again folks ... Shows the value of this forum

Rigging wanted by Tall Paul Lieutenant   Posted: 12 months ago
Hope someone can help me source some rigging bits for my Clyde Puffer. I need at least two rig to mast, maybe 5 tightening adjusts, mast and boom swivel connector ...Going to use some kind of elasticated cord ... Shirring elastic ... Need nautical names for these parts to help searches ... Link to Picture with part names would help

San Pedro Push Boat by Tall Paul Lieutenant   Posted: 12 months ago
Hi, I searched for info about rudder throttle mixer and found some useful info, many thanks for that advice. Many thanks also for taking the time to attach the picture. I can see that a sub frame is needed to accomodate two motors, two esc, mixer, Rx, battery and on/off switch It looks like i will need some special glue to glue wood to plastic, any advice ?

Push tug by Tall Paul Lieutenant   Posted: 12 months ago
Thanks figTree7nts, The link took me to a circuit diagram which shows what connections I need to make. Instead of connecting esc to Rx each motor connects to its own esc and each esc connects to the mixer which then connects to two channels of Rx. Not sure yet how Rx picks up its own power supply which it normally does from the esc .... Will be finding out Wednesday so could report back then.

Push tug by Tall Paul Lieutenant   Posted: 12 months ago
Anyone have a layout drawing for the two motors, two esc, battery and mixer please ? Also any link to build instructions would be a great help as I do not know how to build the internals nor how to arrange for top to come off hull for access and then back on for boating. Grateful for any help.

San Pedro Push Boat by Tall Paul Lieutenant   Posted: 12 months ago
Great looking model. Any chance please of a photo of internal layout of motors etc. ? Many thanks.

Naval pinnace or Picket boat completed by Tall Paul Lieutenant   Posted: 1 year ago
It looks a fine quality model. Did you know that a full size one has been built local to our model boat club, in fact a member's model was so well researched they used it for details on the real one it may be seen in Portsmouth.

Is westbournemodel@ co serious? by Tall Paul Lieutenant   Posted: 1 year ago
If these stories are true then I think a complaint should be registered with trading standards, perhaps with list of complainants. Unless someone lodges an official complaint nothing will change. I use Cromwell Model boat ... Excellent customer service.

South West Ship Show by Tall Paul Lieutenant   Posted: 1 year ago
Many thanks for the car parking advice. Plan to go.

South West Ship Show by Tall Paul Lieutenant   Posted: 1 year ago
Sounds great event. As travelling some distance has anyone advice please about where to park as it sounds like it will be quite busy ?

Transmitters by Tall Paul Lieutenant   Posted: 2 years ago
Pmdent, People here have advised going for more than the basic 2 channels, as price is not that much different this could be a good move if you are planning to steal the water cannons etc. Yes you can use a single transmitter with any number of receivers but just one at a time.

Open event? by Tall Paul Lieutenant   Posted: 2 years ago
Many thanks Andy, Your info helped me find the lake on a google map so I should be able to find you maybe on a Sunday. Regards Paul.

Submarine by Tall Paul Lieutenant   Posted: 4 years ago
HI peanut 667, I notice that there has not been a reply to your question. May I suggest that you find where your nearest model boat club meet and have a chat with them - they are usually quite helpful - my own lot have given me advice about my building a Clyde Puffer. There are some who have working submarines at Stoke Park Pond, Guildford - 10 am Sunday morning - If near to you do come and have a chat - help with plans, Ideas etc ... best of luck. Tall Paul.
