Flying Phantom
« on: May 18, 2007, 07:23:19 PM »

Can anyone help? I have recently started work on Phantom and wondered if anyone has fitted her out with working monitors and if so which ones did you use, i have some graupner ones in the spares box but they seem a little small. I have been very impressed with the quality of this kit especially with the glassfibre mouldings, i have never used TYNE MODELS before now but after this maybe the new tug Maylene.

Hello
Have taken a few photo's of the build so far motor in, a  large Bosch blower motor, both water pumps, speed control, jjc sound module and speaker battery box in plus box to hold jjc old smokey, and have just made a start on the sub decks, loads of work to do yet and may be a long build as work won't slow down. In the background a two previous builds, my barge Doyouthinkesaurus, and Rosalie one of models by designs boats still working on her but could'nt wait any longer to start on Phantom. In the bottom corner of the workshop is the Model Slipway kit Vliestrom which i was offered for silly money and may never build i can't resist a bargain.

Dave,

I made my own monitors on the lathe and so can't help you there but it is a nice work in progress. The prop shaft coupling looks unusual - is it some type of slipping clutch in case of overload?

Cheers,

Hello BarryM
The propshaft coupling is a flexi rubber one more commonly used on i c boats, the motor shaft is a hefty 8mm diameter and i had a lot of trouble getting the right size, unfortunately i don't have a lathe as yet.

Hello DickyD
Flying Phantom is 1/32nd scale and is about 46 1/2 inches long, which makes it expensive as i've had to change the car

Westbournes do the working monitors for the Graupner Tito Neri and The Parat which are both 1:33 scale.

Looks a nice job, looking forward to the finsihed model. One of my easier plans to draw as had a lot of detail from the builders and my photos.
