  1. Hello all, I am going to step away from sails for this build and build a boat I’ve wanted to build for a long time. When I started modeling boats I was in an RC boat club in Indianapolis. We sailed One Meters in the summer and in the winter we ran scale RC boats in indoor swimming pools. That’s when I saw a picture of a fire boat called “The City of Oakland”. I wanted to build it 25” long (1:48 scale) with working water pump and monitors. That was about ten years ago. Since then I have been searching the web for all I could find. And what I found changed my mind as
  2. Introduction : This project has been completed already in the years 1984 / 1985, when I was still a young man. I had the intension of building my own designed steam engine for a model ship. A regular steam engine with crosshead-guides and Stephenson reversing control device, was too complicated to build, in lack of neighther lathe nor milling machine (still do`nt have….). So I decided to design a steam-motor with a minimum on moving parts, and yet powerful enough to propell an appr. 1100 mm long RC controlled ship model. And the driving challenge was also to see if I could do it
  3. Akbar was designed by Sam Crocker as the harbor work boat for the boatyard in Manchester MA. Designed in 1951, the boat was used until the early 2000's when it was replaced by her sister ship Masconomo II. I chose to build this boat as it was great to see such a small tug moving about the harbor. I also really liked the look of the mast and gaff tackle. I have built a number of plank on bulkhead models and wanted the challenge of building the curved stern transom. ( I had looked at doing a draketail, but figured I would try this first) I am sorry I joined this grou
  4. The Wattle was built in Australia 1933 I didnt start taking pictures of the initial start of building as it had not crossed my mind at the time to do a build log its the first time and I am a bit shaky as to how to go on, so here are some of the first pictures, after final layer of glass tissue and propeller tube and shaft fitted sorry about the poor picture, this was quite a big jump to fitting the rudder and the sponson another leap in time whilst the resin was curing I built other parts whee
  5. I wanted to try a tug, but smaller than the 800mm or so of the kits I could find - I like the look of the Occre Ulises, but not the size! I found some plans for the Hermes, a German tug of 1923. I've reduced them to 1/150 approx, which gives a length of 285mm. There will be some modifications: She'll be single-screw not twin, for a couple of reasons: I just think it looks better, and for the machinery space. Which leads to the second mod: she has two cutouts on deck as you can see, and she'll have lift-off deckhouses to show interior detail. The aft space is
  6. Hi friends, I came across a book that might be of interest to those who are interested in old steamships, tugs and other port vessels, or simply in ice-breaking itself. Documentation is rare. Here's the review: M. Görz und M. Buchheister Das Eisbrechwesen im Deutschen Reich Reprint der Ausgabe von 1900 (Icebreaking in the German Reich) (Reprint of the book from 1900) This book is a most complete documentation of the ice-breaking business in imperial Germany. Authored by M. Görz and M. Buchheister, both were directors of waterway administration in imperial Germany and
