    Sea Star

    Hi there,

    Brand new Scaleboat builder has arrived. As you can see that some areas on this boat are empty. I have been thinking and looking arround for suggestions to fill the empty spaces with something, but I dont know what or where to find webshops etc.

    Pls help me to find radars, mast, chimney etc that would be suitable for this boat.

    I have also bought this:

    LED kit
    Port&starboard LED
    2 x Graupner Speed 400 engines.

    But as I said, need to fill up the spaces on roff etc.

    THX
    Jamie

    Thinking of this kind of setup:
    It will probably be best to scratch build the mast & funnel. This way you can better control the scale size to look natural on the ship.

    RE: Sea Star

    If you wanted to add a crew to this vessel, these 1:50 figures would probably work well;

    http://shop.construction-toys.com/6-...e-figures.html

    With a little bit of paint and some minor alterations, these figures could be transformed from construction workers into deckhands on a commercial ship, or revelers on pleasure vessel.

    I’ve altered and transformed many figures for use on my 1:64 scale railroad and continue altering them for use on my model boats. This is definitely possible and not that difficult to do. If you need any help, I’d be glad to offer it.

    That sounds interseting, but this is at Trawler Yacht and I am looking for soffas, benches. Everthing that is suitable for this kind of vessel. I am also having problems finding a way to power on/off LED light using the Control, I am using a 3 channel Futaba and what to be able to use this control for functions. Or is there another solution? what kind of power source is needed to power all 8-12 LED light and led stripes?

    RE: Sea Star

    Use a 12 volt Sealed Lead Acid battery or SLA. Motorbike batteries have liquid electrolyte which will do a lot of damage inside a small enclosed space like a model boat if the battery tips enough some of the acid will come out.. There's no place for it to go except to stay inside the boat, which is bad. An SLA can be operated or charged in any position. In an SLA the electrolyte is contained in either a gel or in a fiberglass mat so it will not leak out unless the battery becomes physicall damaged.

    RE: Sea Star

    for your on and off for the lites, use a Demension Engineering latching relay made to plug into your 3rd channel. Then its one psuh to turn it on and then the next push of channel 3 turns it off....assuming a pistol grip controler. If it is a stick arrangement xmtr then the relay just changes position with each movement of channel 3.
