Hi warspite;


I thank you so much for your detailed information about the specs and experience of your Snowberry as well as many pics,which are all so informative to me for my winter project of HMCS Snowberry.
 Can I see some pics of your Snowberry on the water,if you still have some?

Unfortunately, I never went to the water with a camera and photo's obviously never taken, but if I get my finger out I will need to refit her and get her out on the wet stuff again, she needs a good cleaning and some equipment modifications etc.

Hi all;


Some progress were made concerning steering system as in the pics below.
I used this time some parts for RC airplane application to my HMCS Snowberry as I still have lots of RC airplane parts. O0 %)
1;A rudder horn was set like this.
2:And I made this detachable plug to seal the hole in the rudder post,by which I am able to clean the inside of the rudder post in case something like the rust or other foreign matters should stay there. %)
3;I installed the plug onto the rudder post top.
4;Steering linkage was made like this using the parts originally sold for RC airplane purpose.
5;Then I set the deck to see if it should sit on properly.
6;Well then, setting was over with this,neutral position.
7;To the right
8;To the left
9;The deck hatch was set like this and all over with this process this time. %%  (^^♪~♬~♫

Hi all;


The next goes to the bath test to see if the cooling water could be sucked up through a rudder pipe smoothly and drained statically from the holes on the hull sides,unlike the dynamic draining scene of a fast boat... %)
1;Cooling water pipe was fixed with a glue gun.
2;And a cord as well.
3;A switch for driving a micro vane pump.
4;And tested on the water of bathtub...yes, water was coming through the hole down to the surface very slowly with a 1.5V dry-cell battery.!!
5;This shows a screw prop was running...
6;This kind of powerful drainage is not appropriate for a slow-moving ship like HMCS Snowberry ,isn't it? O0 {-) %)
7;A switch for smoking device coordinated with a throttle stick
8;T-type junction to blow an air for pressing the water out in a tube after sailing.
9;Latest layout..possibly will be final layout unless any problems would be found even in the future.. %%

Hi all;
Some more progress were made around battery compartment and general layout is possibly done finally like these in the pics.
This model ship will be a regular scale model ship to be used for sailing regularly on the water as she is small enough to carry
with and comparatively high hull sides in case the weather is fine and calm, needless to say.
1/2;Batteries fixed and connected in the compartment.
3;Battries disconnected like this.
4;Final layout...All around the decks are to be fixed with screws.
5/6;Normal service hatch is foredeck mainly to change the batteries.
7;The superstructure is to be detached when necessary like changing a battery and checking the main motor,etc every time just after each run.So this is fixed to the deck with two roller catches for easy detaching.

I found that I couldn't work out how to disconnect the communication lines from the mast to the rear gun platform, so opted to lift the whole lot off, i now know better and intend to separate the rear deck and extend the drive shaft and rudder servo to be under the main bridge area, with ballast to the rear area and as low as possible under the new motor position etc.

Hi all;


A very little progress for today which is like a snail's speed slower than a turtle.. {-)
1;An enclosure was complete.
2;Two roller catches were also fixed.
3;The deck was reinforced.
4;The superstructure was neatly adjusted to fit.
5;Temporarily decks were put in the hull..So and so.. {-)
6;Usually these two space are used for maintenance.

Enjoying this but wondering why the cooling for the motor as would not think this model would be run to warrant it ?.


Just Curious.

Hi Chris;
I did not know of your health conditions at all so far..I thought you must have been so busy with your Tiger build..
Please take a sufficient time to recover your good health for your Tiger.

Hi TheLongBuild;


Thank you so much for your comment.
It is tooo much understandable and natural for you to have a curious impression on my water cooling system for my Snowberry. EVEN I am suspicious of the system about an absolute necessity.
On the contrary, it is a fact that the ship became warm on the water tank even at slow run in the bathtub test for a minute or so. If this ship should run in the mid-summer,the 540 class motor and water tank might get warm or hot...
Anyhow,I think it's better to have it than not.I regard this system as this level. %%


Moreover,I added this water cooling to expect and simulate scale realism rather than actual effect to cool the motor as I had mentioned before.


Moreover,this small ship is a bit large for a motor,an ESC, a receiver,a steering servo,a battery to look lonely in the hull.
And she therefore has  still a lot of buoyancy for which I have to load more gears to get an adequate water line not by lead ballast,but by some meaningful gears to get them actually work in the hull. :(( %% O0

Hi Chris;


Yes,it's really easy to build a plastic model ship unlike scratch-build model ships and authentic wood model ships posted on here. :-))
Mine goes comparatively smooth to proceed to the next step to build as you know. {-)
I wish to sail this corvette in coming spring,April...on a calm water...like this tugboat on the water.

Even with the top of my corvette being 'LOOSE', she handled waves similar to the screen shots from the cruel sea, although not at the same speed - a lot quicker as the wind whipped the lake up with white horses atop of the waves. Being light she rode the waves rather than crashing through them. So you should not have any concerns about her being able to take a bit of wave, she will be quite capable.

Hi Chris;
 Your cam switch is interesting and did a good job.!!
I suppose it must have been so difficult to make the sensitive shape of cam as well as to set it against 5 micro switches. O0
It is well contrived and your craftsmanship is stunning !!


The following pics are my 3 way switch with 2 micro switches installed in 1/24 Japan Army Type 90 tank.
Micro servo works right switch on ,both switches on,left switch on.

Hi warspite;


Thank you so much for your pic with so dynamic scene as well as encouragement.!
I like this kind of scenes and I sometimes encounter such fierce waves on my local lake when boating regardless of my expectations... {:-{ :(( <:(


She is not a water jumper nor fond of jumping and striking into the water,needless to say.!! {-) O0
Splashed and drenched and splashed and drenched.....Though actually no water in the cabin except some water drops as she is a cabin cruiser not a runabout.

So the flower class corvette will handle that and heavier waves, as she will be slower as well, she is not a race horse by any means

Hi warspite;


Yes,I'm intending to sail this Snowberry with a scale like speed to simulate the full scale one on a calm water if possible, as seen in the following video of a tugboat. Otherwise,this Snowberry will be suitable to sail on a rather rough water like in the Atlantic Ocean in the winter..??? {-) %) ;)

Hi all;
A little progress for today is to apply water resistant seals around the deck.
I used a buffer rubber for a sliding door which I found DIY shop at the cost of ¥54/m,and got it at 1m. O0 {-)
This corvette is rather high water line so that I think it necessary to prudently seal the edge around the deck as much as possible.
To make the matter worse,our local lake is windy that causes a rough surface frequently throughout a year... {:-{ :((
"It is or must be better to have it than not."is my style.
1;54yen/m buffer rubber for a sliding door.
2;Cut it into two by which 2m seal rubbers could be available.The section is D shape with a sticky tape.!! :-))
3/4;Fore hull
5;After hull
6/7;All around the hull done!
8;I do want our boating lake to be like this water surface whenever I sail a scale war ship model {:-{ :(( [size=78%]...[/size]
