I bought an action camera from Aldi forn £50 and it seems to to be a bargain. Just had to try it out mounted on my Perkasa

Very tidy boat and nice Captain's POV 👍 Next step cam rotation? Limit switches or servo with travel extension ? After that telemetry with video back to base ?? Some sets have a good 5.8Gig back channel for this.
I recently bought the Toshiba Sport camera, with a waterproof case, so I might try it on my 107cm 1:72 Type IIA U26 ! Plug in mount instead of the 88 on the foredeck. For rescue I have the Tug Southampton, bought RTR and modified slightly so I can at least push home. Not easy with long thin ships like my destroyer so thinking of a steel plate on the bow and a neodym magnet on the tugs winch 😎
Response by Dave M on the 2 days ago
Neodym magnets are excellent for holding hatches, decks etc in place.
I have just sourced a selection from ebay and bought two 10x10mm. www.web-magnets.co.uk.I had not considered using as a rescue aid but these magnets are exceptionally strong and once attached are very difficult to remove so certainly up to rescuing a model. We sail many yachts and it can be difficult to find a safe attachment without causing damage.
I do hope you keep us posted on the automation of you features. On water shots are always good especially if they capture other models on the water.

Response by RNinMunich on the 2 days ago
Thanks Dave, since I just retired I have more time to realise some of these dreams. 😉 I already have the parts, will keep you posted on success or 'back to the drawing board'. Cheers Doug

Very nice paddle steamer it has scaled speed, and also crabs to port and starboard which I've seen in real life.
Thanks for sharing your video.

The British Power Boat MGB 449 belongs to a good friend. The Vosper 73' Type I MTB is scratch-built in 2016 and took 6 months. Both boats are 1/24 scale. The location is Albert Park lake in Melbourne, Australia

Schnellboot & Fairmile D - Posted: 2 months ago by reilly4

Both boats are 1/24 scale The E boat belongs to a good friend. It has just had a new camouflage pattern added. The Fairmile D is scratch-built, it took nearly 4 years to build, launched in 2011. The sound effects were added for fun. The location is Albert Park lake in Melbourne, Australia
Response by manyboats on the 2 months ago
Thought it didn't look like UK, but more like Perth WA foreshore!
Response by andyhynes on the 10 days ago
Excellent boats. i have scratch built a vosper 510 1/24 scale known as the long boat. Im also building a 73" vosper 379 which has become a bit of a project? Its a bit big and i am not looking for trying to sail it in my local pond. last time i tried it i nearly chucked myself in the pond to the delight of some onlookers.
Response by reilly4 on the 10 days ago
Thank-you. We use car drive belts to assist with launch and retrieval of the boats. They are easy to carry about, maintain their shape in the water and don't slip from under the hulls. these belts are about 900mm long so you won't have to bend far when launching.
