Here started everything !
Large hull and flight deck for my tiny hobby room!  Overall length is 162cm when completed.
20 on-board fighters"Sea fires"are already ready  to take off whenever their mother ship
is ready!!??

Hi, Karlgalster;

Thank you so much for your kind comment.
I attache another image taken in a trial run soon after launched last year.
This image showed HMS Fencer made a "Port the helm"turn ,leaving
two clear wakes after bow and stern.

Hi all;
Today, I 'd like to display starboard images of HMS Fencer,apart fromt those in trial run.
As you see,an aircraft carrier's sides are  most "show place" for many kinds of fittings
installed, unlike other kinds of warships.

Hi all,
Four images below were ,of course,taken in the past.
No.1;shows a display of digital volt-meter which is indispensable for me to enjoy
      sailing on the large lake. This is ,so to speak,a fuel gauge itself.
No.2;shows the status when power is off.Nothing can be  seen.

Re: HMS Fencer 1/96 in smoking from a funnel
« Reply #20 on: 03 July 2019, 09:56:06 »
Hi all;
Here you see are images of smoking systems for HMS Fencer 1/96 and their effect in sailing
on the water ,which images were taken in her trial run on the launching day of last summer.
Smoking is made from both sides of funnels of the ship currently.

No1;shows smoking unit
No2;shows testing the unit just before installing aboard the ship
No3;shows testing the unit just after installing aboard the ship in my tiny hobby room
      where was smoky immediately!!
No4 & 5;show actual scenes of smoking HMS Fencer 1/96 sailing on the water.

I felt that smoking was effective to add more realism to RC model ship on the water.

Re: HMS Fencer 1/96 smoking system details
« Reply #22 on: 04 July 2019, 05:20:30 »
Hi;

Thank you so much for kind comment and compliment as well.
Here's some details of my smoking system.
 
No1;shows a smoke generator itself.A blue part is for induction of smoke,converted from a cap of Bath   
      coke.
No2;shows a blower fan to drive an enough air into the generator,powered by 12volt battery.
No3;shows  two major units put on the platform.
No4;shows a servo- motor for switching the unit when a drive motor starts revolving,it is ON.
No5;shows simple piping to the funnel,which I hollowed out for scale realism as well as for smoking.
No6;shows a final test in my hobby room to confirm an enough smoking that needs on the water sailing,
      as the smoke will be thinner by the wind and ship speed on the water.

Sailing  RC ships on the water are really enjoyable as well as building them.!!

Re: HMS Fencer generating engine sound on the water
« Reply #23 on: 08 July 2019, 06:44:12 »
Hi all;
Here you see is a video of HMS Fencer sailing with generating simulated engine sound
in a trial run after launched last summer.
Currently, meaningless sound parts have been eliminated.

Re: HMS Fencer equipped with bilge pump
« Reply #25 on: 09 July 2019, 08:04:52 »
Hi all;
Here you see are images of bilge pump installed  aboard the HMS Fencer
to avoid a submergence on the large lake where I normally enjoy sailing.

No1;shows a powerful pump powered with 12Vdc battery.
No2;shows a senser of submeged water.
No3;shows a pair of water inlets
No4;shows a bilge pump installed.
No5;shows a pump test in the basin.
No6;shows a alarm lamp turned ON with red as it has  sensed the water. Right after this alarm...
No7;shows a water started to drain out when testing,soon flooded on my work desk !!!

Re: HMS Fencer,the main structure of bridge
« Reply #26 on: 12 July 2019, 05:22:46 »
Hi, all RC ship modellers
Here you see are the images of the main structure of bridge almost completed.
It was very very troublesome to go 0.3mm brass wire through the holes of stanchions.
The diameter of U-shaped layout of stanchions is around 25mm which is so small to bend
the wire neatly around delicate stanchions.

Re: HMS Fencer,radar platform
« Reply #27 on: 14 July 2019, 02:29:57 »
Hi,all Rc ship modellers;
Here you see today are the images of radar platform.
This structure is mainly made of  delicate brass etching parts.
Normally,assembly of  this kind of brass parts may perhaps be done
by soldering,but I did it by CA and epoxy.
The reason is so simple,i.e.easy to assemble,able to assemble neatly and precisely.
This structure is so comlicated to solder  neatly for my poor skill.

Re: HMS Fencer,assembly of brass etched mast
« Reply #28 on: 16 July 2019, 02:33:40 »
Hi, all;

Here you see are the pics of the mast made mainly of brass etched parts.
I built this structure with CA and epoxy as well as radar platform.
This structure is very important because of eye -catching location standing high on the bridge.
Therefore,I spent lots of time for assmbly.
