The Coast Guard Lifeboat is a Midwest kit of the USCG's newest 47' lifeboat manufactured by Textron. It's about 36" long, powered by two 05 motors.

Well done job on the Midwest Cutter Leroy.

I just got the LST to first paint today and thought I would post a "latest" pic. I did forget to sand and paint the stack though.

Rough Day

The INS Alfredo Oriani, like much of the Axis Fleet took a lot of damage during the last combat over Memorial Day Weekend. But we dished out a lot more than we recieved. Here you see the Oriani limping back into port after a twilight battle. Listing heavily to starboard with the aft gun blown off and the foreward gun reduced to only the firing barrel. A lot of damage, but usual for this type of combat.

I just found these message boards today and read through all theposts in the scale boat section. There is some great talent and advice here, I'm glad I found it. I will try to post a couple of photos of my boat, if notheing shows up. maybe someone can email me and tell me how to post photos.

This is my first RC boat and it is the Pono semi kit from Harbor Models. It is 1:24 scale, 40 inches long, and it has 3 12volt batteries powering 2 Pittman 3700 motors. They are reduced by a 2.5 to 1 belt drive to 3.5 inch 4 blade props. The motors are independent and I used Electronize FR30HX speed controllers. I'm very happy with the quality, price and service from Electronize. There are still many details left to be added to my tug but it is operational so I can play with it at the pond.

Tachikaze - what on earth is that? I think if I did see it, I'd try and chop it in half by ramming it. It looks like something you don't argue with.

The only thing it resembles is some type of fast torpedo boat?

INS Alfredo Oriani

Tonyo,
That is the light Italian destroyer INS Alfredo Oriani. This is how she looked after a days worth of combat at the end of a twilight battle.
You will note that the forward section of the bridge deck house has been pierced and that several sections of the weather deck are now gone. The forward gun has been reduced to just the operational barrel and the aft scale gun is completely missing.
This ship is armed with two 3/16" CO2 powered cannon, one fore and one aft. She also carries mines and counter measures.
This is an example of what a day in the life of a R/C Combat Warship looks like.

No, sorry, I didn't make myself clear - it was the previous pic I meant - the DKM S-38 one.

DKM S-38

Tonyo,
The DKM S-38 is a Schnelleboote. German fast attack torpedo boat, called an E-Boat by the allied navies.
It runs on two automatic camera rewind motors with a 6.2V battery pack. It fires two metal rods, 2 1/4" long and 1/4" in diameter. It is 17 1/2" long. It has navigational lights for night combat and can lay down a smoke screen.

Thanks - didn't recognise it from that angle. I actually built one about 35 years ago - the brain's going, I think!

Sea trials are successful. After 3 weeks of construction, the LST has completed her sea trials and successfully deployed a w/72nd scale r/c tank.

More Of my Boats

I was rummaging around for pics of a Whaleback Freighter for Antonio and ran across some more of mine, and since it is raining and I can't go boating I will bore you with a few more of my fleet.
The first 5 are my river tow and barges.
The barge on the right fetures an operating hard hat diver, who carries a super Bright LED lantern that will shine about 5 feet out into the water and is capable of 150 foot dives.

This is a model of a steam powered pile driving barge used by the railroads from about 1890's until 1920's.
