Loyal Supporter Build
« on: November 08, 2010, 11:30:26 PM »

sep 30th .

Oki So i finally got round to ordering my Loyal class from model slipway last week and thanks to the fast delivery i received it after 3 days  ..

before i started any work i read though the instructions and done some history, i decided that instead of doing everything at once id slow down and take my time.

  Following your thread with interest. I rather like that vessel. It'll be interesting to see how you make out and what you think of the kit.

8th november ,

just relised in my last 2 post's i put november . lol silly me . i should have put October.

anyway today i got the prop shaft it .. had a small problem with the prop shaft because i managed to drill the hole on an angle, its oki now but the hole is a tad big and will need to be filled in ......



the rudder went on better, just a slight between the hull and the cast metal fitting for the rudder. yet again nothing some filler wont fix .





i also managed to cut the hole out for at the front of the hull . i was hoping to do the others but i need to double check my measurements





if anyone can spot where i can improve or if any of you have any advice , please say because im always open to advice, :) thanks guys . more to come tomorrow once i get to Antics to get some wood for the servo shelf, and the stand for the power distribution panel :D

Hi John . the kits fantastic.... like tbh its good for me cuz its HUGE lol and from my past models i dont do well with small models , i tend to lose parts and break parts, however the parts on this kit are ideal for me as they are bigger .

i also found the models by design have a kit for 1/48 scale, i hope after this kit i can get the 1/48 kit and paint it in the yellow buff .

dan if you are close to bristol docks there is a full sized one moored there most weeks , it out of mod service but seems to be used for private charter and sea cadet trips , she is painted in light grey , may be good for some close up photos ? sorry cant remember her name , maybe contacting the local harbour masters office they can put you in touch with its owner ? jon

Yes jon that is my plan for tomorrow as a matter of fact. i live in kingwood . so antics is just a sort ride, i tend to stop by the docks on the way and get a few snap's .
the pride of bristol is and interesting vessel . i remember taking a tour of it as a young boy in the harbour festival .
i have the website of the owners and i am trying to get hold of them . just so i can find out some info on the engine, and maybe gain some inside snaps .

Howdy, Dan2010, and welcome to the Loyal "club."  I am about 90-95% complete with mine, painted in the yellow of the RMAS.  Here are a couple of threads where others have built Loyal models (I have not put up a build log yet, as I have been slo-o-ow at it.)  It's a very nice kit, and MS gives great support to me over here in Washington State, US, by e-mail and quick shipment of a few parts I have broken.

There may still be other build logs, like on RCGroups.com, and on the MS website.

CGAux26 yeah i know what you mean . i got my boat on the 22nd sept and i opened it up and i ordered the brass prop , thing is the brass prop needs a 5mm prop shaft where as the white metal one only needs a 4mm.... anyway i opened it up and tried to screw the prop on and it wouldnt go .. i emailed MS and to be honest i wasnt expecting a reply for days because i know they popular and tbh i didnt really need the shaft for a few weeks.... anyway i checked my email to find something and to my surprise they'd sent me an email. must have been within half hour to an hour,
anyway i received the new shaft within days and i can only thank them for their help ... anyone wanting a model boat should go to model slipway ..
 CGAux26 would be cool if you posted some pictures with some info ....
if you want ill give you my e-mail and we can exchange info

Dan  :-) :-))

hi dan , your right there used to be a pair of them , the other one used to have a black hull and grey superstructure , although ive not noticed it for a while (bristol is my home city ) it may be worth asking over at the office at underfall yard as they may know of its whereabouts ? it wont be any further up river as its to tall to get under bristol bridge ! , bathurst basin i think is mostly a cruising club ? , although it may be down at portishead  ? maybe a google sat map will show its location , its cheaper than gallons of petrol searching !

heres the pic's of the motor mount




Okay i know what you guys are thinking " what the jiminy cricket's is that"

well thats why attempt of a motor mount . dont worry i have spare wood for any mod's

what i intend to do is add 4 screws to the side frame and hold the motor on with elastic bands . not sure if it will work but ive seen pics .. lol 
 :D
 because of all the added stuff im putting in the boat im going to need a power distribution panel ... i hope to make a stand that will enable me to take the top off so i can get to the motor for any reason's

im hoping to make a start on the servo shelf tomorrow . so will add pics as i go . :)

thanks guys
