Hello all. just joined the forum, my name is steve and im an engineer from surrey. I have built 3 boats so far, a springer style tug an ep speedboat and my latest build, also the biggest.  A Fairmile D in 1/24 scale. this took 4 months of evenings and weekends, so I didn't get out much {-) . hopefully , everything will go ok on launch day next week.   Steve.

Hi Steve and welcome to Mayhem.    :-))

Several of us are building the Fairmile and would be interested in your pictures.  Could you post some bigger ones, with a gap between lines so that we may see then in better detail please.

Cheers

 Is the Fairmile a kit build?

Simple as Steps 1234

Photobucket will AUTOMATICALLY resise the pics for you,after pasting 1st pic simply leave a space underneath it and then put next pic up etc etc.......The handy thing about Photobucket is that it doesnt take up server space on the Mayhem server

Heres a run down of the build of my fairmile D.   The hull is a Kingston moulding , propshafts are from G sitec and the props are 38mm raboesh.  Power is from 4  Johnson 600, 12v motors though 2 viper 40 esc that have been linked to the rudders via a mixer for better turning. Guns and some of the other fittings, ie torpedo tubes,turrets etc, are battlecraft items, bought to save time on the build.  The superstructure is 2mm plasticard, also the oerlicon mount.   All the guns rotate 180 degrees except the turret guns which move 90 degrees, The port holes and nav lights all  light up.  There is a working smokescreen unit at the stern and working depth charges which fire out and detonate .   Main power is from 2   7.4v  11amp nimh packs.  There are 4 different sound units operated by the right tx stick, through 2 mini servos and 4 micro switches.  Ships siren,   machine guns,  anti aircraft gun,  and 6 pound gun  , they use 4 mylar speakers in the superstructure and sound pretty good.
