Victoria - Posted: 4 years ago by Nickthesteam
mdlbt.com/15422   >> Permalink
This Is Victoria, she was built from a Krick kit about 4 years ago, steam powered with a Maccsteam boiler and an SVS 10mm bore x 11mm stroke oscillator. She Is currently taking a well earned rest after 3 years hard work, out 3 days a week, weather permitting. Undergoing boiler cleaning, engine overhaul and a bit of patching up of the woodwork.

Clyde Puffer Libby (Model Slipways kit) - Posted: 5 years ago by CapnJim
mdlbt.com/12961   >> Permalink
See forum and my harbour (CapnJim) for more details.
Just some footage of my weathered Model Slipways Puffer - now some years old but still cruisin'. Still appreciating the model and Is one of my favourites. One day I'll build a puffer at 1/32nd. but for now this does very well.
Easy build but lots of opportunities to add detail. This has all the bells and whistles (well 'steam' whistle, smoke generator and puffer engine sound at least). Would fit In a briefcase but still able to stay afloat against the wash of bigger boats or blustery winds. Surprisingly, steers well when going astern. Speed with supplied motor about 2mph ' but this Is faster than scale by a margin.
Clip prepared for YouTube resolution so best not viewed full screen.

Love the puffer,lived In Argyll when puffers were still working boats,have one to build,next project.Enjoyed your video,boat looks to bevery well built!

Wacker Quaker II Liverpool DUKW - Posted: 5 years ago by 4clubs
mdlbt.com/12705   >> Permalink
This model of the tourist attraction In Liverpool a few years ago.Sadly after a couple of mishaps all four have been withdrawn from service. The model however survives. It was scratch built from photos and site visits by myself (Max Ferrie).There were no plans available. It Is about 28inches long and roughly 1/12 scale.It was built almost entirely from plywood. As you will see from video It operates on land and water. It Is six wheel drive using differentials on all wheels. When In water It Is prop drive. It has two small electric motors for power, the wheel drive being very low gearing (too low really It goes very slow on ground). It was completed In 2010, and Is filmed sailing at the portable pond at Toys For Boys In Waterloo In 2010. It has sailed at Hoylake MBC also.
It Is powered by two 6volt 4AH batteries In series to give 12volts.

I've only seen them on the television, great job on the model!
Response by 4clubs on the 3 years ago
Many thanks. I made two of these, both are now sold. The models still survive but the real things have been withdrawn from service.

Wannabe Police Launch - Posted: 5 years ago by Mzee

My own design deep "V" hull with upper-works loosely to 1:15 scale replica of the Mitchell 31 boats previously used by various Hampshire constabularies In and around the Solent. The Intention Is to fit this model with a working, rotating, radar scanner using the servo motor and gearbox from an old video camera lens system; working lights Including flashing blue police lights and a sound-alike "wee-wah" siren - just for the hell of It (and because I can)! Technical details: Hull length: 867mm. Construction: GRP layup with 1.5 and 3mm ply and balsa deck, cabin etc. Motor: MFA Torpedo 850. Propeller: X50mm plastic. Battery: 2 x three cell LiPo pack In parallel. Speed controller: Mtroniks Viper 25Amp. Radio: Hobby King 2.4GHz.
Response by Mzee on the 5 years ago
My son says this Is way off a replica of the Solent police launches of that time: a) It moves too fast, b) It's not billowing black smoke, c) It's not making enough engine noise, and d) It's not towing half the Solent behind! 😀
Response by don83000 on the 4 years ago
Looks nice and goes well for a brushed motor.

Tabletop Waterway - literally! - Posted: 6 years ago by CapnJim
mdlbt.com/9774   >> Permalink
Built out of house guttering to a scale equivalent to model railways HO the layout Is approx. 4 x 3 ft. Mounted In a wooden frame and provided with a protective see through cover It fits Into the car and can go anywhere. It has been an on-going project to build RC boats to suit. Those used at present are commercial products (loa 5" (125mm)) with simple two channel two prop drives - not proportional but with forward and reverse and by operating one or both props plus reverse steering Is OK. Battery life limited to 6-8 minutes with similar recharge time. Built largely from scrap and odds and ends the project cost well under £80. The Idea Is/was to have several units and link them together to make a large layout!
Response by Othello on the 6 years ago
Good job. Looks like the boat need some side bumpers :-) but perfect Idea for slow river boats.
Response by james1102 on the 5 years ago
Unique Idea. Love It

RTR minI electric speed boat with proportional 2CH RC. 280mm loa (11")

Good boat and fast. Watercooled brushed motor. Normal problem with commercial mini-boats Is lack of proportional RC but this Is fine. Battery life about ten minutes - low freeboard and takes on water but electrics/RC have proven resistant to regular swamping!
Response by blackgold on the 6 years ago
I liked your boat. I also have an 11 Inch boat with an extended exterior rudder that brings the length to 13 Inches. Mabe the exterior ruder helps to keep water out of the boat this sort of rudder Is seen on gas boats In usa.
