80' Elco PT Boat by Zdenek Chief Petty Officer   Posted: 1 month ago
[Score: 7/10] 30"/1600g 80' Elco PT Boat Single Propellor (2 Blade X Type 40mm) Direct Drive to a Turnigy Typhoon 500 Heli (2 Blade X Type) Powered by LiPoly (7.4v) 5Amp/h Batteries Controlled Through Turnigy Marine 60 Amp (60Amps) ESC - Comments: A scratch-built stand-off model based on Model Boats free plan (design by GG). Material mainly balsa wood (hull) and plastic (styrene) on superstructure. Propulsion unit differs from the original design. This is a second set up, not really tested yet. Original set up was Speed 700 Turbo, 12 V NiMh battery pack 4100 mAh, it was 500 g overweight. The only "special feature" are working position lights. It was a pleasure to built and it is pleasure to sail her.

Engine question by Zdenek Chief Petty Officer   Posted: 1 month ago
What I know about fishing boats of this type, they usually use diesel engines (approximately since WW II). Zdenek

huntsman plan by Zdenek Chief Petty Officer   Posted: 1 month ago
Tony, according to my latest "investigation", there is also a possibility of purchasing a modellers set of plans form The Fairey Owners’ Club. The plan is at a scale of 1:12 and it is a copy of the original Fairey drawings. Two sheets show the plan, long section and cross sections. The contact is Charles Lawrence, email: czczcz@me.com Zdenek

huntsman plan by Zdenek Chief Petty Officer   Posted: 1 month ago
Hi Guys! Both plans are available there: https://www.sarikhobbies.com/product/fairey-huntsman-mm680/ and there: https://www.sarikhobbies.com/product/fairey-huntsman-mm2111/ As far as the articles in MB 2016 are concerned, they were "just" a support for those who decide to buy the plan or an attraction for those interested in. As mentioned above, the article is very helpful. I have decided to for a build as well, when I've read the articles. I had a chance to enlarge the original by 1,5, approximately. I did it because my intention was to use and modify a plastic hull I've had at home. It's dimensions were the scale factor... After some work I've realized the enormous extent of changes necesary and switched to a scratch build... Being very slow builder, it is still in progress, hull almost ready, waiting for the deck, spray rails and started the preparation of parts for the cabin.

NAXOS - Fishing Boat by Zdenek Chief Petty Officer   Posted: 1 month ago
And one more: http://www.shipmodell.com/index_files/0PLAN4A.html It is possible to download the plan and some lictures from the build. There are also frames, the keel and some parts, re-drawn so that you can print them on A4. It is a little unusual way of downloading but it is possible.

NAXOS - Fishing Boat by Zdenek Chief Petty Officer   Posted: 1 month ago
The plan is from the era of "Czechoslovakia" and the design was inspired by an Italian fishing boat "Susanna". It is not a true-scale modell. Try to look there: http://www.rcrevue.cz/objednejte-si/planky-modelar&page=60&p... It is in the Czech language but there are pictures of the plans ... In my opinion, the build would not be much simpler than Artur but there is one advantage: All parts are on plan, they are numbered and you can identify them on the general arrangement. Good luck!

Fishingboat ARTUR by Zdenek Chief Petty Officer   Posted: 2 months ago
Hi Doug, I didn't know at the time of posting but I received the info from Dave. I will keep that in mind, in the future. Zdenek

Fishingboat ARTUR by Zdenek Chief Petty Officer   Posted: 2 months ago
It is OK, Harold. Artur is an iconic model boat here, in the Czech Republic, so there is a lot of models of this boat and thank to that, there is a lot of information available. I have the scan of the plans, so it was not any big problem. I have gone through my "archives" and found something which could be of your interest. I think, I should have copies of the printed plywood sheets from the kit. Should I find them, I wil make scans and will pass them to you, if you want. It could be of help, I believe.

Fishingboat ARTUR by Zdenek Chief Petty Officer   Posted: 2 months ago
Hi hercowell, As I am from the Czech Republic, I have made the translation for you. I am affraid that "uncle Google" is not very good in translation from Czech language, as per my experience, especially when the "specialized" dictionary is concerned. Hope it wil be of help.

Fishingboat ARTUR by Zdenek Chief Petty Officer   Posted: 2 months ago
Hi, I am affraid that translation from Norwegian will not help you much, should you intend to build the boat according to the plan you put there. This plan is in Czech language. It becomes from a kit produced in 80-90ties (last century) in Czechoslovakia. It was a plank-on-frame-construction and, originally, it was not intended for RC, so some adjustments of frames and internal layout will be necessary. I wish you good luck and paitience enough!
