Now I want to come up with one of my photographs from my smallest R/C
model I have built. It`s the HMS Velox, scale 1:100 which gives her just a
length of about 64 cm and a weight of 0,38 kilogram. Hope you will like
it. - Yes we do! Mayhem

PT Boat from 1916
another boat of mine- a P-Boat from 1916. This was made also scale 1:100,
the hull is GRP out of a pattern. My major interest is the British Navy
WW1. Even about the plans and sources to make it happen in it's appearance
"as build" is a story of it's own. The basic plan was a fragment from John
Lambert. My friends of the SWA supported me with additional photographs so
I have redrawn the plan and lead all the single chips together to make a
complete one of it. ( SWA = Surface Warship Association -
Scale 1:100 means in that case: 74cm length and a "draught" of 0,68
Kilograms. This looks very small, anyway it gives a good performance on
the pond, even if some waves are coming along (as long as you go "Full
ahead"). I beg your pardon, if some used terms or descriptions in my
English are wrong- it's been a while since I left school and I don't have
too much opportunities to improve it. Living in the southwest of Germany
it is pretty hard to meet up with my lads from the SWA or to speak
I am sorry that the
Modelboats-Forum went down.... ( Long Live the new Forum! - Mayhem )......
Probably some regular visitors remember, that last year in summer I was on
the search about information on a 70`CMB. Meanwhile I have made my first
trials and have to say, it really runs like hell. Attached a photograph
taken on the 5th of April, with my model of this CMB scale 1:24, going
full ahead. It's appearance you just can call...... "spectacular"! Now
there is just all the small bits and pieces to do, to get it ready.
The scale is 1:24
which means the dimensions are about 91x18cm, total weight 2,7 Kilograms.
It is powered by two Graupner Speed600BB Turbo-Motors, with 10 cells NIMH.
This configuration gives about 25 minutes of full ahead.
Hope you will like it, ... by the way, we have made two of them (CMB102MT
+103MT), Number 3 is already under construction.... :-))
