Help!!!!

I would like to attempt to build a Tupolev G5 MTB but my searches on the internet have provided meagre results. Does anyone have any plans for this boat ( I would like to build in 1/24 scale if possible) or could point me in the right direction? Equally, any good websites you may know of?

 Could swap for plans of Schnellboot  (1/24) or Fairmile D?

Thanks

Hi Stuart,

Couple of long shoots for you.

Latest Model boats mag has a pic of G5 Russian Torpedo boat at Mannanan model boat festival, Isle of Man. Built by visiting modeller George Barnes. It looks to be built to a high standard. It may be possible to make contact with through this forum or dare I mention it http://www.modelboatmayhem.co.uk/forum/

I'm sure I've seen this boat before (got some pics somewhere - pre digital days  ) If I remember correctly I think it was on the stand of Scale Warship Association. http://www.warships.org.uk/SWA%20about%20us.htm

Hope the above can get you on track

Regards Kevin

Hi Stuart,

Found those pics I refered to. I have posted these in my gallery.

In the second pic there is a reference book titled 'Soviet Naval Power. G5 Class MTB by Przemyslaw Budzson.

Might be worth seeing if you can get a copy  perhaps from the libary

Regards Kevin

I attached in my gallery some pictures from russian Web pages.

The book of Armia I think is out of print, because I tryed to buy it some times, in some differents russian book stores in the Web (I know russian language), and I coud not do it. I even asked for it to www.aviapress.com twice, but, as I expalined, I could not buy it.

For that, I posted some days ago a chinese web page where is possible to find it, but it was deleted from the forum.

Stuart, Am curious if you've located the plans for the G5. I'm planning to build a BK1125 later this year using a new kit due out, but & would like to follow with the G5. Chuck

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.
