« on: October 11, 2018, 06:25:50 PM »

Speedline Tamar Lester 1/12

now I'm a proud owner of the kit in 1/12 ..
au man is the big .. lol ..
I'm really looking forward to building that .. !!!!!!!!

It will still take some time until I am in the cellar of the new apartment electricity and light but until then I am diligently gathering information and worrying about how I can later realize my wishes in the reality .. it should then in my model like that much like me is possible to move and work as well as the big model ..

as soon as it starts I will share my progress with you here ..

I hope that it works with the pictures ..

Hoi Mick ..

I was only surprised by the size .. Although I have used a ruler when ordering .. but he does not show the true dimensions .. lol ..

but now I'm happy about it ..

my first work will be the grinding of the hull .. from the bow tip extends over the keel to the heel seams .. below the tailgate are also seams and at the transition from the hull to the deck are almost all around smaller dents and corners ..

they have to get away so that the hull is perfect too ..

the actual work with the keels begins ..

drive search ..

by Adrian and some others, the emax 4030 is recommended .. but after intense search, I find him not .. he will probably no longer manufactured ..
by a note from Taranis I came across the Turnigy Aerodrive SK3 - 4250-410KV ..

and that will probably be my drive setup ..

I recommend you buy a programming card as well .....  https://hobbyking.com/de_de/hobbyking-boat-esc-programming-card.html
My Tamar never needed higher than 25 amp fuses with similar motors.
Many are using the same motors with the Speedline Shannon and have found the Turnigy ESCs to be a better product.... 

https://hobbyking.com/de_de/catalogsearch/result/?cat=&q=+9261000054-0 ( 50 amp )  or https://hobbyking.com/de_de/catalogsearch/result/?cat=&q=9261000056-0  ( 90 amp )

plus the card to match...  https://hobbyking.com/de_de/catalogsearch/result/?cat=&q=9261000059-0

I agree with Alan and I use the 50amp Turnigy marine ESC too. Despite numerous thrashings they won't take out a 25 amp fuse  :-))  I no longer fit fuses and rely on the ESC to protect itself.


They are on the lower equipment shelf with servos and pumps.


A different boat yes and we use 1185kv 35-42 which may not be suitable for the Tamar so I would stick to the tried and tested.






An out of date picture without upper shelf and fuses now scrapped

After a long break, I now report back .. Meanwhile, the heart of Tamar has arrived and I have started to drill the rudder blades .. and although I have bored very slowly is partially way the half millimeter from the edge melted as I think .. but if I embed the 4 mm stainless steel rod, the holes are filled again .. after grinding the rudder shape and painting it will be nothing to see ..

Hoi Ginger

I let them have 3D print from the company ..

https://www.3dnetzwerk.com/zeitdruck/

but surely there is someone near you who can print them for you .. I have a drawing with the measurements from the article here by OVL - TAMAR Speedline 1/12 - made page 2 and sent to the company ..

greetings Holger

yes Taranis ..

they look great .. I am now only on the superior if I leave them in color as the color is already very close to the original color approach ..

Did you get an STL file from the 3D printing company, or did you send them one?

Neither Lance nor .. I have sent him a drawing with the measurements .. he then gave me a picture of the model if it is ok for me or if I may have change requests .. he has then changed something .. me again then sent a picture again and I then gave my ok to print .. but you will surely find someone near you or on the island .. from here, too, the shipping would be very expensive ..

now it goes slowly forward .. first I would like to prepare the hull for painting and then drill everything .. grind .. this should also come to the two water inlets on the rear fuselage bottom .. but since they are not shown in the plans I need now necessarily the dimensions for the right position ..

It would be great if someone could help because they belong to the boat and 2. I would like to use them to cool the two controllers.

Thank you, Holger says

Hi Holger,


If the location is not shown on the drawings, you can always use photos to find the location. I found this one on the net which may assist you. Water Inlet is circled.

This is what I let into the hull, they’re commercial aluminium inlets.


The centre of the block is 145mm from the stern and 38mm from the chine. They’ll have the oval grills added when I’Ve made some.
