Bella by vosper Lieutenant   Posted: 2 months ago
[Score: 8/10] 34" Bella - Comments: I reinforced the keel with a sandwitch of fiberglass, I also covered the inside with fiberglass. The materials do not look sturdy enough but once finished she looks good. Sails very well, this was my first ever attempt at sailing and I really enjoyed it and found it to be relaxing.

German ww2 type V11 sub by vosper Lieutenant   Posted: 2 months ago
[Score: 10/10] 36" German ww2 type V11 sub Twin Propellors (2 Blade X Type) Powered by Lead Acid (6v) Batteries Controlled Through mtroniks ESC - Comments: Revelle model converted to r/c. A little bit fiddly to convert to r/c due to shortage of space in hull. Looks good on the water.

Compass Rose by vosper Lieutenant   Posted: 2 months ago
[Score: 10/10] 36" Compass Rose Single Propellor (3 Blade) Powered by Lead Acid (6v) Batteries Controlled Through mtroniks ESC - Comments: Revelle model converted to R/C, a little bit fiddly to build and convert but not difficult, looks good on the water.

VOSPER by vosper Lieutenant   Posted: 2 months ago
[Score: 10/10] 34" VOSPER Capable of 5mph and a runtime of 40mins Single Propellor (3 Blade) Direct Drive Powered by Lead Acid (6v) Batteries Controlled Through mtroniks ESC - Comments: This is a great model to build

Need to slow down on my build log by vosper Lieutenant   Posted: 1 year ago
Glad that you are enjoying building this model, hopefully your blog will inspire me to get started on mine.

raf crash tender 3ft by vosper Lieutenant   Posted: 2 years ago
I think that the 3 foot model is 1/16 scale

raf crash tender 3ft by vosper Lieutenant   Posted: 2 years ago
Hi, try Cornwall model Boats, they are an excellent company to deal with. http://www.cornwallmodelboats.co.uk/acatalog/becc_fire_tende...

Impressive

New Lake at Colwyn? by vosper Lieutenant   Posted: 2 years ago
Good news about the new lake. What is access like and can non club members use the lake with their r/c boats ?

The wheelhouse navigation light. by vosper Lieutenant   Posted: 2 years ago
Thanks, looking forward to the next instalment, more of a near miss for my head on the block, phew !

The wheelhouse navigation light. by vosper Lieutenant   Posted: 2 years ago
Hi Rob, Can you give some advice about switches for navigation lights as I nearly had a disaster on the lounge table due to a short circuit ?

Epoxy coating the hull by vosper Lieutenant   Posted: 2 years ago
Looks lovely, I`m really enjoying your build.

Chine strakes by vosper Lieutenant   Posted: 2 years ago
Hi Rob, can you tell me approximately how long were the skins and strakes in the steam chamber for ? Thanks

Fitting the bottom skins. by vosper Lieutenant   Posted: 2 years ago
Good job Rob, by showing the process of building your boat you are a great help to people like me. 👍

Propshaft by vosper Lieutenant   Posted: 2 years ago
Are you on the night shift ? Carry on the good work, great job. 👍

Chine stringers. by vosper Lieutenant   Posted: 2 years ago
Thats right Rob. I wish that I had tried to steam the skins on my boat before trying to fit them but due to the tight curve I ended up cutting the skins on the bow sections into three parts and reinforcing both inside and out of the hull with fibreglass. My wife is already asking what I want for Christmas, I quite fancy the Aerokits Sea Commander. Guess I`m hooked now.

Chine stringers. by vosper Lieutenant   Posted: 2 years ago
I am enjoying your build and I am especially looking forward to seeing how you will fit the bow sections. I am in the process of painting my 34 inch fireboat. She is the first wooden model that I have built and I have thoroughly enjoyed the process.

Westbourne Model Centre by vosper Lieutenant   Posted: 2 years ago
Westbourne Models are useless, hopefuly you paid by credit card which means that you can reclaim your money through your bank. Personally I can highly reccomend Cornwall Model Boats.

WESTBOURNE MODEL CO. by vosper Lieutenant   Posted: 3 years ago
Maybe it is time for all model boat clubs to join together to warn their members about this company. The magazines that accept their adverts should be involved as well. I know how infuriating it is to try to deal with these people. They took my money quickly enough but ignored several emails and telephone messages when I tried to get them to resolve my problem. If anyone still has problems post it on their facebook page.

WESTBOURNE MODEL CO. by vosper Lieutenant   Posted: 3 years ago
After several emails and telephone messages the only way that I managed to get a response from them was by posting my problems on their facebook page, otherwise, hopefully, you paid with your credit card and if so you are covered by section 75 of the consumer credit act, contact your bank. How those clowns are still in business beats me ?
