A couple of interesting images of a 1:1 Armidale underside showing the direction of rotation of the props.



I have removed the first picture as the site seemed to contain links to other innapropriate sites.  Please ensure this does not happen again.  Thanks for your understanding BB

Does anyone have any idea why the ACPB was on the back of that truck & where was it going?

Hi Steve
When I said I wanted the big one I meant 1:50 not 1:1
Brian
p.s.
I am not sure if Australia Post have enough stamps.

It looks as if the props turn away from the keel rather than towards it.   Port anticlockwise and stbd. clockwise unlike Peters.
So where does that leave our discussion?

Ha, Ha, Ha. I'm glad that you only want a 1:50th scale hull as I think that a 1:1 hull might be just a bit too big to fit on my workbench.

Hi Ken
It's an interesting thought, but if Peters props are turning in towards the keel then would not the water be moving down the rudder shaft?

Regards
Brian B6

Hello again.

Don't forget the boat is moving forwards and the prop wash will be directed horizontally at the moment they leave the blades because of the pressure of the water below,  straight into the leading edge of the rudder.

If the props are turning the other way, the water will rise into the air above the water line and look pretty in the sunlight and flow over the top of the rudder in a plume.  You might even see a rainbow.    :}

Mind you, I could be wrong.    ;)

Laszlo,  great work.  Pictures look good.  Those tabs are great.  Makes me think it may be possible to have working rams??

spenyo ....in image 1723 it appears that the cylinder barrel couplings are left & right hand threaded like a turn buckle :-))......is this the case or do my eyes deceive me %%

So from this will you adjust the trim tabs after the vessel is complete & fully ballasted?.......Derek

Hi Spenyo
Glad to see you back.  O0
I have sent you an email.
Have you decided what to call your Armidale?   There is a list names of 1:50 boats, built or building in the:- "Armidale Class Patrol Boat - Names Register" topic, that you might like to add to.

Hi Guys,

We are working on two boats in same time. "Launcheston" will be mine and the "Armidale" will be my friend's boat.
Derek, you could see well that the trimm cylinder barrel couplings are left & right hand threaded and the plan is when finished the boat we try to trimm it for best speed. After this connect to them two-two black "tube" which look like the hidraulic tubes.

Hi All,

I have finished the first crane. It needs some refinement, but mainly done.
Have anybody got picture(s) the whole crane unit ? I had to use the model's plan, a half picture - thanks Peter - and my fantasy to finish it.

Hi for All,

I had a little time and can work with Launcheston. I have built in the bowtrushter and the stairs on the back side.
Here are some pictures about it.
Need some tubes for hidraulic imitation, but it looks like the real.

She is coming along nicely.  O0
What material have you used for the trim tabs and rudders?
It is interesting to see  models of the older Hungarian warships from your club.

I recall about thirty years ago, whe I was starting out modeling, I learnt to put steel wool in water for a few days, and then use the rusty water for detailing the decks etc to look 'used'.

There appears to be a fair amount of coffee stain on the decks of that boat. ;-)

Thats because the crews drink mugs and mugs of coffee  O0 O0 which invariably gets spilt on the decks in rough seas.
