Another "IMARA"
« on: April 25, 2019, 10:37:48 PM »


Hello Mayhemers,
maybe some of you remember me from some time ago.
A little more than half a year ago I started with my "IMARA" project and she is now almost finished. I am waiting only for some rigging parts from the UK.
I took a few pictures today and hope you enjoy them. The model is equipped with two electric motors (720BB), ESC's and a mixer as well as working interior and navigation lights and a pretty elaborate sound system (ShockWave II). My special thanks go to Dominick Tafelspitz who provided me with all the 3D printed door hinges.


Kind Regards
Wilhelm

Excellent build & images Wilhelm  :-))


That view [Imara_03] looking on the propellers is lifelike & looks like an 0300 shot from the floor of the Drydock O0 


In the real vessel [or the model] where is access large enough to lower those 205 litre [44 gallon] drums of BP  lubricating oil down to the engine room?

I do like a nice Imara, and that certainly is one of them. Excellent build

I'll just give up modelling for Today then - not going to beat quality like that. {-)  Stunning to see.

Awesome work, Wilhelm. She's a real beauty and you did a stunning job!
Love the pictures and I'm sure I will use some of them as reference for my own build.

Hi,
the IMARA is done (will add a few more figurines), all that is left is the maiden voyage. I took a few extra pictures and I hope you like them.


Kind Regards

Your surfaces are so smooth and crisp, painting is so neat and tidy, no brush lines or stray glue blobs.  Hate you, just hate you.

Not really Willhelm!  Inspirational more-like.  Absolutely superb job :-))   Sea trials should be fine.

Wilhelm, great to see you on again.  You're still doing superb work. This is the first Ive been on for a while, so I'm late with a post back to you.I've got the same kit, but no time to get it built, and no room to store it. I did do a Tsekoa though.Hope you're keeping wellJohn Vincent

@B.B, thanks for your comment. I thought the boat was all finished, but I did add a crew and tire fenders.


Thanks again.
Wilhelm


@ Hello Vincent, great to hear from you again and I hope you are doing well. T
ime is going by faster the older one gets.



Thanks for the compliment. I hope you will find the time to built your IMARA.


All the Best

Wilhelm,


I got a bunch of tire fenders ready and prepared, but no idea how to mount them to the boat. Any tips and hints for me?

Hi Dom,

I did use small eyebolts with rings. Here are two pictures to show you how I did it.

Brilliant, thanks! These eyebolts intrigue me. Where did you get them?

Hi Dom,
I did order them from "Cornwall Modell Boats" in the UK. The little brass rings are fairly delicate and I soldered them to the eyebolts. I made a small template in order to drill all the 1mm mounting holes ( for the eyebolts) exact 3mm below the lower edge of the handrail.


I hope this helps.
