There was a wonderful R/C model show in Tewksbury Massachusetts this weekend. Some wickedly terrific Airplanes and boats on display. The largest there was a 1/2 scale Fokker DVIII WOW!...Continue Reading

Just three of my choppers I have, the latest is the Kalt Baron 20 Nitro powered one in the rear. I'm considering converting it to brushless electric.

Any tips on that, let me know!

A severe ice storm ripped in to end the boating season. This one was a mess and took my power for 33 hours. Thank you Honda generator!

Enclosed are some pics that make this B***h look almost heavenly

Found this one not too far from where Dora 9 and I go shooting. Has definate possibilities especially considering it has a nice sandy beach, and I just purchased a rubber rescue boat. Need to go and float a few with Charlie Eaton before the ice comes in.

Well finally got an internet connection here in Scotland, and here is the first of a few photos from my trip to the RAF Leuchars airshow in St. Andrews Scotland.

Started working on the Equipage Florida 80 the other night, and though it has gotten some bad press I believe it mostly was the older versions and not the current version. What a beautiful boat though, and I decided to make a mahogany rear deck for it for a change of having the upholstered cushions back there. One thing you DO have to do is lay a coat of resin over the wood innards of the hull. Though the outer hull does have a thin coat of fiberglass, the inside wood is bare, and could use a coat of something to waterproof it.

Well there have been many postings of the refit of the 24" Dickie Tug-Harbor-workboat, but I found this new one at my local Tugboat place, and after much searching, found no one had posted anything on it. YIPPEE! first on the block.

Well this is another Dickie Harbor tug. But it is 10" shorter, and with differing superstructures, and lines on the hull. Cool, Well lets look at what we have here, and what kind of trouble I can make for myself.

OK, had the great luck at picking this hull up at the local boat club swap meet. It's the BIG Dumas Shelley Foss fiberglass hull. Dimensions 45" long by 14.5 inches wide. This is probably the nicest looking fiberglass hull I've seen.

Only issue is that it's only the hull. If anyone has fittings and such that their not gonna use, let me know.

Will post more photos as the project progresses.

This will be an ongoing log of the build of the 22" Midwest Lobster Boat. It's supposed to be a static display boat, but you all know the modeller in all of us... I'm making it R/C with the advice of my bud Charlie Eaton.
