ASD hull from MMB
« on: July 24, 2014, 10:23:35 PM »

Picked up an ASD tug hull from Mark's Model Bit's this morning.


Really nice hull and very, very strong. I am well impressed.


Spent a bit of time chatting to Mark - a really helpful and friendly chap.

Cuppa,
 
Bought a semi kit from Mark last year (he no longer carries it  :(( ), was very easy to deal with, had no problem shipping to the states.

Have been getting the hull prepped for the build and sorting shaft, kort, motor, coupling and prop.


will post some pictures when it reaches the 'interesting' stage if anyone is interested (I know builds on this hull have already been posted by others far more skilled than I am).


The ASD is a great hull and excellent value for money. I just hope I can do it justice.............

please do post pics of your build mate. Every build is different and every one does them different
Will you be using standard props and shafts with steerable kortz nozzles. Or will you be using steerable asd units from graupner ?

Remember Mark showing the prototype at Wick steed  2010
It danced around the pond :-))
Not sure what running gear it had but it was impressive.

Its still on my top five of models to make before crossing the bar.

OK - here is the first picture. 60mm kort and the 5mm propshaft. Not bonded in yet as I have to get a P frame to support the shaft - I don't fancy hanging a 60mm brass prop on the end of the propshaft without it having some support.

Thanks for the tip Ian - so a plywood fillet between the propshaft and the hull would be the best bet?


Cheers

postman has just delivered the 755 motor from Action Electronics - man that is one big motor! It is the motor that Mark recommended for a large single kort installation for the ASD hull. Next job is to make up a motor mount then solder some wires and capacitors on to the motor and then run it in.

Ooh. Just a thought too. Don't know if you can see on my picture. But I havn't used the bits that you got to stick to the kort nozzle for the rudder post to fit in to because I found that the angle of the prop shaft was too great

Your help is much appreciated. I am now busy trying to reduce the propshaft angle as much as possible,

Slight change of plan in the propulsion system area. I have decided to use a fixed kort and rudder - just a system I prefer so am going ahead and modifying the kort to make it fixed.

Hiya Cuppa,

I was thinking of fitting a Kort as well but my Propeller has rounded tips  !!    Am I correct in saying the ends have to be flat, just missing the wall of the Kort tube.  ?

Cheers
