Very nice, Craig! The G5 is an interesting subject & its good to see one being built in the States, especially one this size. There is another G5 build ongoing over at ModelBoatMayhem as well that I've been following.

I can't get into any details at this point but can say that a well-respected manufacturer is currently developing RC kits for both the G5 Tupolev & Bronkater BK1125, the later from Steve Neill's masters in addition to several other noteworthy subjects. 2009 should be an exciting year for the model boat enthusiast.

Hi Craig,
looks superbly.... scale 1/10 makes her a real beast on the water. I`m doing the same scale 1/20 at the moment. The trouble is, that I can`t care too much as I have to many jobs parallel on the workbench and it`s bloody cold outside at the moment.

Which engine do you want to use to power her?

What a unique machine, I can't say I have ever even heard of one before. You are definately deep into the detailing of it, be watching for wet pics!

Hi Craig,
well... that`s impressive! What I`m not sure either is, as they have used rivets? I thought that they had been welded...
Brilliant job anyway. Can`t get on with mine as it is lousy cold in the workshop, still hanging on that (word not allowed) cold winter.

Now I know why we havent seen a update on the 72 inch LCAT.

Very nice work. I dont think I would have the patience for all those rivets.

Default RE: g-5 russian torpedo boat

a message from a dutch guy, found this thread by a very long search. For my next project I want to build the G5 torpedo boat, so far I could not find any plans what s ever. I have just a russian booklet with photo's and drawings, but no plans.

Can somebody hear help finding the plans...?

Currently I work on th German S100 1/35 torpedo schnellboot from Italeri

look at the dutch forum at:

http://www.modelbouwforum.nl/forums/...ml#post1165626

Or for pictures of the build at my personal photo site

www.puffin.smugmug.com

You find it in hobby projects

Greetings

Try Taubman / Loyalhanna in the US. Loyalhanna is going to release a G5 kit in 1/20 sometime this year if you don't want to scratch build.

No idea at this point but it will be out along with a 1/20 Bronkater & some new 1/100 IJN & USN subjects.

Here the dutch guy,

Did some rechearch on the G5 and I found conflicting info. It looks like the boats are from wood till the waterline, and metal above.
The puzzle is that most of the metal is welded plates, not rivited, only major ornaments such as the drive house. Most models and drawings are with rivits, but the photo's I found show no rivits. Whats up...any ideas??

I am currently working on the G-5 in 1/72nd scale. Working up the hull at this stage for vacume forming to make an R/C version.

At this point I am still trying to get the frames cut out. Our planes did not reduce well.
My original plan was for an R/C 1/72nd scale made from styrene. But, since I am doing that, might as well do a resin kit also. 桷せんせい will be helpful in getting that done. I will be doing both projects together. I am not sure what I will use for the rivets, I will consult with 桷せんせい about that, perhaps cut and finished styrene rods.

For rivets, you might consider [link=http://www.archertransfers.com]Archers Transfers[/link]. They offer a variety of surface detail sheets in 1/35, HO & N scale which might work. They're in demand now with the Italeri S-100 builders who want more accurate detail than the kit offers.

Herrmill,
Have you tried those rivet thingies? Do they peel off and stick on and then you detail over them?
