After hearing what Dumas is doing, (or not doing), kind of makes you wonder if Ebay will have more listings of these popular kits. Did ours just go up in value? dry.gif Not that I would sell mine, but I bet someone out there will see what they can get for these discontinued kits.sad.gif

what kind of radio control system thinggy do you use with your model boats? I have an extry system I used for one of my airplane, is it the same kind. can i use it

As long as you use the correct frequency range for your model. If you have a radio with a (Aircraft freq), you should convert your transmitter and reciever to a (surface freq.)

Radio Frequencies

Aircraft Use Only (72 MHz)
(72 megahertz, Channels 11 - 60): This is the most popular choice for flying models. Most radios designed for model aircraft and helicopters will be available on these channels.

Surface Use Only (75 MHz)

All Uses (27 & 50 MHz)
(27 megahertz, Channels A1-A6 and 50 megahertz, Channels 00-09) While legal for air or surface use, we recommend that 27MHz be used only for surface models. A pilot and driver broadcasting on the same 27MHz frequency would cause interference and could cause a crash. 50MHz channels can be used for R/C, but require the user to attain a Technician-class amateur radio license from the FCC.

Having a solid base for your hull to sit on during construction is important, which tends me to ask the question:

How did you make your stand?
What materials did you use?
Is it used to transport the model to the lake?

I realize there many ways this can be accomplished. I personally, have used PVC pipe for my other projects.
Building the Mister Darby, which when completed will weigh in around 60 lbs., I think I will incorporate this stand into a pull wagon from my son’s younger days. This way, getting her to the shore will not be too much trouble.
How about you?

Hey Roger,

Looking at the pics of your first Darby, where did you place the battery? It seems to me that somewhere in the middle of the hull, but looking at the blueprints, it does not seem clear. Also, did you use additional ballast? huh.gif

Just some thoughts…..

It seems to me that when you start a project like the Mister Darby or any other model, you really need to plan where all of the electrical and mechanical devices will be mounted in the hull. Everyone has their own ways of finishing a ship and that might require the modeler to go beyond the printed instructions and make alterations to fit their needs. For me, looking at the plans that came with the Darby, they really don't give you a good layout for items such as the main battery. This is where the experience of the modeler comes in. This might require modifying the deck openings, whether making them larger for better access or adding one for things like a bow thruster. Saying this, I believe that you need to obtain most of these items before construction begins. You may have to alter the construction to fit your desired results. Taking your time and proper planning will result in a model you can be proud to show off at the lake. cool.gif

I think with some creative ingenuity, this could work. But, you’re right. The size might be a problem for some narrower ships.

I think you have convinced me. wink.gif And I like the idea of speeding up the construction. Not only that, but I like the idea of the steel planking effect. biggrin.gif

Well, my first boat was the Dumas SkDaddle. It wasn't a scale craft, just a flat bottom mono hull. It was 1972 and I was 14 years old. It took almost a year to complete, but I still remember the first time I took it out with my father. smile.gif In fact, I still have this boat. It is 34 years old and believe it or not, it is still sea worthy. I used 3 hour epoxy. cool.gif

This is a nice little tug! Being that I live in "The Great Lake State", I do have a lot of opportunities to go down to the Detroit river and see what is going by. Mostly freighters, but still very interesting. wink.gif

This might serve as a nice project for my son. cool.gif Thanks for sharing the info.

Ran across this a few months ago. Looks like it might work for adding your custom sounds to any compact flash card. not a direct fit, but with some ingenuity and a few switches, this might turn out to be a winner:P

Dave @ Harbor Models stocks many kits. He has lots of kits from such manufactures as Model Slipway, Billing Boats, Dumas, Kyosho, Micoglass and Midwest on hand. He is also the source for brass props and he has a large selection of fittings. He also stocks Robbe items and the Robbe F-14 Radio. He has alot of items for those who are into scale tug and work boats. And soon he will be getting into the Scale warships. wink.gif



Harbor Models is work a look cool.gif

I agree. Harbor Models is THE place to go for the Darby or any other ship for that matter. Running hardware, deck fittings, radio's, etc. tongue.gif

Hey Jim, you said you pulled out the blueprints for Mister Darby again. Have you decided to build it exactly like Dumas calls for or are you gonna add a little imagination to your work of art? Jens sent me more pictures of his Darby under construction that you will want to see. ohmy.gif
Jim, let us know what you plan to do. wink.gif


Roger,

When I purchased the Darby, it has been my intensions to customize it as far as: adding sounds and lights.
Although, building her will be a feat in itself, she still could use some improvements. Have you any thoughts on the new glass superstructure kit from Harbor? I'm wondering if this will speed up construction or more importantly, make a better looking tug? huh.gif

For the past week I have been looking over the carcass of my previous Mister Darby project. A couple of years ago the Mister Darby was damaged (dropped) when I moved to another house. This Mister Darby has been in storage over two years. Now after looking at the plans and thinking of the problems I ran into during assembly, I think I will take a different path on my next Mister Darby. The picture below shows some of the damage to my first Mister Darby. The damage is far more severe than it looks in the picture below. NOTE the masking tape holding the decks together. I am embarrassed to even post this picture! ohmy.gif



One of the features I will have on my new Darby is the use of the Harbor Models Power Distribution Panel. I located it under the wenches. In order to do this, I had to make the wench house roof removable. Then I mounted the wenches on a hatch and then mounted the power distribution panel on a bracket that supported it. I do plan to change the bracket design and add ventilation holes on the bottom of the bracket. The pictures below were taken BEFORE my Mister Darby was damaged. I also plan NOT to use the switches that were mounted on the outside on the post side. (You can see these switches through the stairwell on the port side in the picture)









More updates soon. smile.gif


Hey Roger,

Good to be back on the forums. Like the new look. smile.gif Anyway, any picture of a Darby is welcomed, damaged or not. Mine? It has been "dry-docked" for some time now. Hopefully construction will commence soon.

I have one of these radios that I ordered from Harbor Models with the Navy Twin Stick. Looking at the radio after I got it and all of the extras, looks like this is a quality set. Anyone have anything to add? biggrin.gif



Robbe F-14 Navy Marine Radio


That radio is in my sights as well. Seems like it has all the features whether standard or optional to control your scale craft without any compromises.cool.gif
