My Italeri S-100 Schnellboot
« on: September 25, 2010, 03:59:07 PM »

Here are a few pictures of my Italeri 1/35th scale S-boot S-204 "Lang". I've used propellers from George Sitek, 3mm propeller shafts from Raboesch, three Deans Marine Navy geared mini motors, a single ni-mh 7.2v battery pack for power and a single Mtroniks Viper Marine 40 esc. More pictures to follow.

A few more pictures. The skull cap and 40mm gun shield are Cammett replacements, I also have some Cammett canvas dodgers to add.

The dinghy is also from Cammett!  :embarrassed: I've really enjoyed this build and would recommend this kit to anyone. I've only tested it in the bath so far, but it certainly shifts a lot of water on full throttle.  %)

Thanks Richard. I was impressed with your Javelin and am going to have a crack at a Deans Solebay as my next project.  :-))

Hi RSM,

really impressed with the pics of your build, but a bit baffled in the internals pic [2] what are the items attached to the rudder arms.

i can see the steering servo, but on each side there is a blue ?servo?micro switch?? connected to the rudder arms.

is this to reduce power to, or shut off altogether, the motor on that side when turning hard ?

sorry if this is a silly question, but it doesn't take much to baffle me these days !

cheers

Nice clean boat, but i am too baffled, by your rudder set up, and you say you have only had it in the bath, i know for myself putting a boat in the bath is nothing like seeing her sailing on the water of a boating lake, when i did mine i had all three tiller arms contacted but only one metal rod to the servo,
Have you sealed the whole of the rear deck down, but left some type of access hatch so you can get at the rudders if you need to!
 hope you can post few photos of her on the water!

Sorry Guys not trying to confuse you. I tried linking all three rudders together so one servo operates all three, but I couldn't get it to work satisfactorily so each rudder now has it's own servo connected by "Y" leads to the receiver. A standard servo for the large centre rudder and a micro servo for each of the two small rudders. A bit unorthodox but it seems to work a treat. The model is still not quite finished so I haven't had it out on the lake yet, but I will post some pictures when I do.

Hi Roger,
Nice build.  :-)) :-))
Are you able to say what size props and shafts you have fitted.
Any chance some close ups, such as rudder area.
Noted that you have used kit rudders.
Looking forward to updates after sea trials.  O0 O0

The propellers are made in brass by George Sitek (www.gsitek-props.co.uk) and are based on the kit ones (ie 32mm diameter). The propeller shafts are from Raboesch (3mm by 270mm). The rudders are the kit ones, I have made the shafts and tubes for them just from brass tube and rod from the model shop. I will add some close-ups later, got to nip out shopping with the wife now.  :-))

The propeller shafts are available here:

http://www.deansmarine.co.uk/shop/product_info.php/cPath/35_46/products_id/2368

The propellers were made to order by George Sitek (http://www.gsitek-props.co.uk/) and are 32mm in diameter and threaded to take a 3mm shaft.

The boat has a good, to scale, turn of speed (no rooster tails!!!) and a fairly large turning circle flat out, but this improves a bit at slower speeds.

Regards.

I really enjoyed the build. I'll try and throw some images tonight. I also have the Italeri MTB 77 which I will be doing "brushless", nowhere near making a start apart from getting the components.  :-))

How did you get on with the dodgers, were they difficult to fit!
I am presently waiting for the mines set from Master Casters  (ex-Cammett moulds)

The canvas dodgers were quite time consuming to fit, but not too difficult. They were just threaded on to the existing railings using thin wire. I didn't use the edging strips just the main dodgers.

Excellent work  :-)) :-))  I'm definitely going to add this boat to my Christmas list  :}  Would be nice to see some pictures or a video of her in action. Keep up the good work Dan.
