Re: Glen-L Party Boat

That is really cool. Very reminiscent of the Skeeter Sweet Thing featured in Woody Boater. The 3D pictures sure bring out the appeal of the Party Boat. Well done!! http://www.woodyboater.com/blog/2017/11/15/1974-skeeter-yeah-its-a-sweet-thing-no-really-thats-the-model-name-really/ Roberta :D :D :D :D

Thanks, Denzel!! You and your beautiful boat helped encourage me. This forum and the people on it are the best.

Re: Torpedo X 0.16

I think I will be able to handle the flip by myself for this one. :lol: :lol: :lol: Nice 7A slider. Here is the 7A tip up I built.

Re: Torpedo X 0.16

I agree, Carl. It will probably need some ballast weight anyway, so I will be building in some access points and places to add lead weights. I also do model RC aircraft. Did that before getting into full scale aircraft and recently got back into it with electric power. Rich and I have a small 24&quo...

Re: Torpedo X 0.16

Today I trued up the frames and cut the notches for the harpin, shears, chines, and keel. Everything is fitting up on the build form very much like the full size boat did. I'm debating on cutting the frames out to light the bow. The battery and electric motor will weight down the stern somewhat and ...

Re: Aluminum Barrelback

Might be kinda cool!! Maybe anodize the AL in different colors for an interesting effect.

Re: Torpedo X 0.16

Started working on the model this week. I cut the frames and other parts and set up a build form. I used a reference mark on the scale drawings to establish where the dowels, I will be using in place of motor stringers, will support the frames as I build up the structure. Holes were drilled in the f...

Re: No limit to the jet squirt!

Pretty Cool!!! I also think the trimming of the nozzle is the best way, if doable. If you are maxed out on trim already (assuming you have that) just crank it out a bit more for the higher speeds. Lower speeds won't be bothered that much by a little extra bow down trim. But a small boat like the Squ...

Re: Torpedo X 0.16

That looks Great!! Several other builders(VuPilot, for one) have done this, too. Not up to another big project, but this will keep me busy.

Re: Torpedo X 0.16

Great idea to have a scale truck and trailer for it. I'm laughing about the idea of me trying to build a 1/6 scale Expedition. I think a cradle for transport in the big Expedition will do. I'll have enough to do just trying to build the boat. :lol: :lol: :lol: You have to remember I need a lot of ti...

Re: Torpedo X 0.16

True! I probably need to build a 1/6th scale trailer and an RC Expedition. :lol:

Torpedo X 0.16

I started making scale plans for the Torpedo today. Not much to show yet. Just blew the 1" to 1' drawings of the loft lines for frame sections, the knee and the stem to 200%. That will make a 1/6th scale model which will be about 37" long with about a 14" beam. I plan on building it u...
