Watcha trying to say Eddie?


I've got mine blushlaugh

Yeah, keep going Ray frown, I do have an oscillating engine part built and makings for a boiler and a 1/96th tanker should be big enough for live steam, but I guess we'll need a cruiser or two as well, oh and a fleet carrier, 3 or 4 corvettes....... ummm am I missing anything? laugh

Hi Eddie et al, I am getting better slowly, I felt well enough to go to a club auction today for a deceased members lifetimes collection of workshop stuff, quite sad really. Came back with a carload to be sorted.

That's a good way of doing it, I did mine the other way but used some roof sealing compound that remains flexible to seal it all, Coated the bottom and sides then dropped the lid on with a thick coat on and that's never going to leak. I plan to glass the hull and deck then red oxide all of it and the matt black for the hull, not sure for the deck though.

HMCS Haida, last remaining Tribal class destroyer preserved at Hamilton Ontario.

Anyone want to pay for me to go and take photos for the good of the Cossack group build???? wink

Tim C, Bigger workshop = more space = room for a Cossack smiley

You know it makes sense laugh


30/06/2019 14:11:43

Hmmm yes current count including repairs/upgrades = 7!, oh plus the Cossack but does include the Veron Damen Stan tug freebie I collected last week, feeling frustrated crying and evil devil as I can't stand up.

That's looking good Eddie, you've overtaken mesad, it's difficult to judge the foam right so it fills the space but not overflow too much. Can't make out whch bit that is though?

Ooer it's a bit empty in here, kinda echoey. I'm up for it but you mentioned enlarging to 1/96th and I'm not very good at that kind of thing so will there be help offered?

You could put your own slant on it - rich git buys off navy and converts it as a play toy, de-gunned of course surprise

HMS Cossack was one of the destroyers I built as a young impressionable teenager, did a good job of it as well. smiley my problem is if I build a warship it has to be to 1/96 th scale, this would give me the latitude for the kind of electronics I would want to equip it with. That would probably mean going to cruiser class with it's wide beam or something similar, got to be WW2 though.

But still Vic's might be good practise.... and fun laugh, who's up for it?

We should consider a Mass boat Build as the R,C,M&E runs via the Model Flying website ?I

We could build a battle group wink


28/06/2019 18:59:42

Tim R..... so rude laugh

Eddie, cheers, if I was a boat they would say broke it's back but as I'm hoooman (allegedly) I will get better.....ish.

Ray, Hi, due to the above, not, but will be working on the hull as soon as I can.smiley

I have now got a small forge for casting parts via the ceramic shell process, will prove useful, I hope. wink

'Ere we go, first signs of good weather and I stuff my back up, crying. I didn't even make it out of the bedroom, and no I wasn't doing any kind of exercise, cheekydevil, just bent over to tidy my pillow and now I'm stuffed for at least a week..... buggersad

Ah well, books, youtube and computery things I guess!!!


23/06/2019 22:21:53

Hi Ray,

He'll be fine, receiving counselling at the moment wink. The trigger stuck on so all I could do was keep the foam where it was, I hadn't fixed the deck on yet so I'll slice off the excess tomorrow once it's hardened.

Make your own contribution to the Website

We welcome well written contributions from Website members on almost any aspect of Model Boating with a particular emphasis on practical hints, tips, experience and builds.

In order to maintain a consistent standard and format, all suggestions should first be sent to me by Personal Message for approval in principle. Only a very limited amount of time is available for editing contributions into a suitable format for placing on the website so it is important that the material is well presented, lucid and free from obvious spelling errors. I think it goes without saying that contributions should be illustrated by appropriate photos. I shall be happy to give advice on this.

The Member Contribution area offers space for short informative mini articles which would not normally find a place in Model Boats magazine. It is an opportunity for Website Members to freely share their  expertise and experience but I am afraid that virtue is its own reward as there is no budget to offer more material recompense!

I look forward to receiving your suggestions.

Colin Bishop - Website Editor
