Fitted my ACTion bits today, the P94 Dual escape/mixer, P92 Power distribution board and the P95/2 Twin indicator fuse board.

They worked - a miracle with my electrical knowledge.

Just got to wait for nipper to give me a hand with the test pool so I can see how it floats or if.

Then I need some fine weather for the maiden voyage.

Looking good there, Dicky. Don't wait for the weather. it's on the turn, I hear. Don't forget your camera.

Cheers

well Richard my friend, what you have to bear in mind, is, when you are the lake withyour better half and all the other modellers are running for cover, complaining about the wind being too strong and the waves being too big and they are afraid to sail their models, in case they get swamped and sunk - you know you built the Sentinel so well and to such a good high standard - that I could tip it right on its side and it still righted itself.   When we looked how much water there was inside, there wasnt a great deal of water in the inside  :-))

So me trying to sink it, did prove one think - yeeel never sink it Dicky  :embarrassed: :-)) %% %% {-)

so Howway man, let's hoy this one in the lake.  :((

only joking, honest
aye

Model Slipway kits are great to do. You get decent materials, good instructions and drawings, a website full of photos reviews and hints and tips and wonderful customer service where nothing is to much trouble. The only thing you have to get used to is their weird opening hours.
I would recommend them for beginners any time. :-))

Not bad, wonder if I will get anything off my Maggie M for that recommendation. {:-{

Hi Richard

The opening times are 7am until 3pm that is when Lawrie is in the workshops and can answer technical queries; there is usually someone in until 4pm, and sometimes later. If not the answerphone is on and we return the calls the next day. 

Re Maggie M. I was expecting a delivery of hulls on Friday but it did not turn up. I should have some this coming week.

I know I have emailed from here in the states in the pm and have received an answer the same night when I know it's in the am in the UK. You can't beat that. I would have been happy with an answer when they opened and had the first cup of coffee let alone when I know they're long closed.  :-))

Hi Richard,
your Al Khubar looks great on the water, congratulations., well done (as usual). I also like your wiring job, very professional. I am still working on my Graupner "Adolph Bermpohl." If the weather cooperates I can do a little more painting on the hull this week. By the way, after looking for more than a year for an unbuilt kit of the Gry Maritha, I finally found one.

All the Best

Hi,
I know this is an old topic but I just picked up an Al Khubar kit and read through this thread.
What did you use to glue all the styrene together?  Also looking at cutting out the freeing ports, what dremel attachment did you use for that?  was thinking of drilling a row of holes and filing to get it straight and opened up.


Thanks

 I'm just doing a Model Slipways kit and I'm using Testor's liquid cement. You may want to use a finer brush for the application than is supplied in the bottle.

Good evening everyone, sorry to resurrect this rather old thread. This is my first post on this forum, i have been reading from the wings for quite some time.

Im currently working as a farm manager for 6months in Uganda and keenly planning my first full build when i return (Al Khubar). Funnily enough i have sailed alot of mine and my late grandfather's (Tom Griffin) models on Setley pond.

Anyway heres to the point.
Could i fit these steerable Korts from Mike's Model Bits for the ASD harbour tug on Al Khubar?, they are 45mm, what size is Al Khubar fixed korts?

I would like to finish by saying how much i have enjoyed reading the various threads on this forum.

Many thanks

James
