My late great grandfathers boat we used to sail together. Hasent be sailed since he died 10 years ago.
Hoping to take it out soon. Its really old. I cant remember if he made in in 1992 or 1982?
It's a billings boat kit. Its twin prop and runs on a 6v sealed battery, the radio gear runs on crystals.
..... huge sentimental value.

My Deans "Wacht am Rhein"
I started the build at the start of Lockdown, she took 18 month to finish and was a joy to build, as you can see she look great on the water.

A recent ebay purchase, cleaned, straightened out, a few parts made and kitted out.
First sailing was good, bit more detailing to do but very pleased. First boat in 20 odd years. - David Trelfer

Hi Martin,
                  Some photo`s of my Tamar Lifeboat that won First in the kit class at Haydock Park 2015.
                  It has a Model Boats magazine on the dashboard,

                  " So it is a model of a real Tamar Lifeboat with an article in Model Boats magazine
                   of how to build a model of a Tamar Lifeboat."

                      Regards,
                       Bryan.

Mayhem's Photo of the Month

May  2022




As I was looking through my archives, I thought about asking if the attached photograph would be good enough for photograph of the month posting.

Photo 1 is a repeat of what was posted in the forum thread
Photo 2 is a higher resolution photograph of the tug after it was converted to electric and the paddle box vents were modified to fan pattern.
Photos 3, 4, 5 and 6 are just other selected from the archive.
Photo 6 shows the wash produced by the paddle tug.
Thanks,
 Tony52

June 2022


I just enjoyed a kind of scale realism on the water of my Snowberry moored at buoys as seen below.
It was calm ,sometime windy on the water today and a pair of mooring buoys did a nice job as expected even under windy time. :-))
Using these buoys,I could enjoy model boating only seeing the ship,while I take a rest on a chair with a cup of tea.
I think it is much interesting to moor the ships not in operation rather than to get them on the boat cradle on the land. %%
Therefore, I intend to carry them whenever I go for model boating from now on.!! :-))
Boating site and test of mooring for today are as follows;
 
I was impressed with two dogs together with a young couple of boaters and the dogs were sitting on the boats very seriously beside their masters!! It was a happy day today as usual.!! :-))   -  Backerther
