    I drilled out the corners, and gnawed the straight edges out using a utility knife.

    Soldering I am usually at about 600Β°
    I clean the parts, place some flux, and put a bit of
    solder on the iron tip, then touch it to the joint and let solder flow into place.
    I use silver solder for major components, and electrical solder for small quick joints.

    The decals are Micromark Paper. Arial font.
    I took a large brand stripe off the USCG website, and copied it, and
    placed and reversed the logo for each side of the boat.

    We had a fleet at the time.
    This was a scale model combat fleet, so the patches that you see in
    one photo were laquered in place after attempting a landing on one of the islands.
    We were hoping to push all the target tanks off the edge and claim tonnage points.😁
    But the range of the rc tanks was too limited.

    For the most part I use variable temperature soldering station.
    Where you see flat plates attached to the mast, there
    I used an old resistance soldering unit that was picked up in a surplus store for $60

    This is where I started, removed the top hatch, relight, and
    added the roof windows on each side. 😊

    I created all the extra parts, and made molds and cast the number I needed.
    Most people making this conversion, so far, have used my parts, and decals.
    The railing and the mast I don't provide, and are all custom brass.
    The mast base is made to fit the Harbor Models working radar.

    Here is mine also. 😊

    I used "glazing & spot putty" by bondo for filler, no hardener required.

    How do you power your life boats? Direct or gear drive, 6/12 volts
    propeller size? More info would be great. 😊

    We Lost...New pumps for next year though. - - - 1/36 scale model uses twin graupner voith schneider drives, and twin ESC. Main power is 12volts for the drives, and auxillary pump, and one 6v for the main monitor pump.

    πŸ“ electric problems
    12 years ago by Umi Ryuzuki ( Master Seaman)

    How long does it run before it stops?

    It may be heating up, and popping the breaker in the ESC.
    If this is the case, maybe a smaller propeller, or gearing the drive down to 1.5:1 or more might help.

    if you have a good set of plans or pictures, you should be able to solder one up on your own. Or make one up out of wood sticks or hardwood dowels.
