Title: Hello from Paris
Post by: Calimero on May 27, 2014, 02:33:57 pm
Hi everyone,




I live near Paris and I'm going back to model boats after a few years off. I've resumed work on a Robbe Odin kit I also have a Proboat Blackjack 29 fast-electric cat. And a small springer tug.


I'm also a member on modeltugforum.com (same nick). I'll re-post the build logs for my Odin and my springer here.


Trying to get my springer ready by Saturday. There's the "Bateaux en fête" event ("Boat fest" ?  {-) ) in Massy, 20km from Paris this weekend. And my springer is missing a wheelhouse. One is being 3D printed as we speak. I hope it will turn out better than my previous print. ABS is very tricky to print.

Hello Caliméro


Nice to see you here.  I'm looking forward this week-end to meet you at Massy, your springer and my new toy for tug should be friend !

I've just upgraded the prop on my springer to be ready for you tow. More blade surface, slightly larger diameter but same pitch (actually a tiny bit less pitch).


My 3D printer experienced some parts breakage. I'm working on an interim wheelhouse with previous "prototype" wheelhouses leftovers.


And quickly put together a new hatch to hold the Gopro in order to film stuff at the pond.

Will film onboard with a GoPro and I'll take my tripod and camera. The night sail should look nice.
