Apr 03, 2015Bertram 38 Convertible - inspired "Dirty Deeds"Right after finishing up my previous vessel Berrinche, I embarked in this project in preparation to this boating season.
These RC model boats are based on an easy-to-build 15-inch long hard chine hull mostly constructed from balsa. Being a planing hull the speed is high enough not to be boring, but not so fast it would easily get out of control. Generally, the balsa sheet should be relatively light-weight and soft, but most importantly, straight grain and even density.
Tools are often a matter of personal choice as there is often more ways than one to skin a cat. How much will it cost for a 63 inch including shipping to the UK and how much for a 47 inch boat including shipping to the UK. In preparing the RC boat hull for the next step, you can now carefully remove the structure from the building board. Also, we're done with the hull alignment template that was placed under the wax paper to guide component placement and alignment. After you remove the hull frame from the building board, remove any wax paper remnants if any.
Place the hull frame on top and position the raised part of the transom inbetween the "legs" of the deck.
Trim away the area of the keel where the propeller will pass through it, thus creating a tunnel for ditto. Now peel away the template (make sure all bulkhead locations are transferred first!) and place it on a flat surface with the attached doubler facing down. Propeller shaft tunnel finished - note faint pencil marks for bulkhead #4 just to the left of the doublers. Transom and keel transition - note how the keel is lined up to the center line of the transom and flush at the rear. A square corner of a balsa sheet is held against the hull at each station and the edge of chine shelf and keel is marked on the balsa.
Lay the sheet down on your cutting surface and lay a straight-edge between the two tick marks and cut with a razor blade or X-acto knife.
Now the hull frame is ready for sanding to smooth out the shape some and to give the skin more edge to hold onto. Here you'll see the latest updates and additions to the site with the most recent addition first. These projects are perfect for beginners and those looking for a cheap, easy, simple and fast build.


These boats would make great introductions to both scratch building and RC boating.You may wonder why I keep referring to this project in plural. For propeller I've come to use one plundered from a toy (I'll get into more detail later in the build log).For propeller shaft, stuffing tube, rudder etc. There is no reason a more commercial RC battery pack couldn't be used.The propeller is "on loan" from a Tamiya Submarine Motor (#70153). However, if your building board is really dark, or just ugly, you can lay the template upside down under a fresh sheet of wax paper. Give the deck side of the structure a light sanding with 120 grit sandpaper backed with a flat sanding block. However, when it comes to installing a propeller shaft most of those builders would be scratching their heads trying to get a propeller shaft tunnel aligned correctly.
Do as follows:On the keel, we need to stay clear of the bulkhead #4 location, so make sure the keel is well marked in that area. Prop up either extreme of the keel with scraps of material until level and clamp or place weights on top.
The purpose is to provide a temporary landing and support for the next step in fitting the lower triangular parts of the bulkheads.When I built the prototype it took me a while to figure this out, so they may be missing in some of the pictures below. Just like when the deck was attached, keeping the keel perpendicular and centered is more important than locating front to back.
With the other hand, with a sharp pencil, mark the edge where the keel and chine shelf intersect (see picture below).
You can save a little time by using the first triangle at each station as a template for the opposite side. I strongly recommend that you don't substitute the materials recommended here.Below is a list of material needed for this RC boat hull and approximate quantities. Even if the wax paper looks clean and comes right off, I'd opt to replace it for the next step.
It will provide a light, neutral background when you build that makes it easier to spot things that are out of the norm or things you drop or spill. Go easy as the only purpose is to take down any obvious high spots.Put the hull frame aside while we focus on the two deck halves (item "B" on the plans).
Don't expect them all to line up perfectly, but it will give you a good idea of how close to ideal you are at this point.Also check and make sure the frame is making contact with the deck along the deck stringers, transom, bulkheads and the stem piece.
It would require a jig, extra long drill and some luck to get it right.We're going to take much of the tool requirements out of it and stop relying on luck for success, here is how.
Next, lay the keel (template down) on a flat surface and glue one doubler to the back side of the keel just ahead of the #4 bulkhead location and line it up parallell with the bottom of the keel.If you're off by a few millimeters from either that's fine. Try hard not to cut into the doubler.The prototype used a 4mm outer diameter stuffing tube, so that's the size marked on the drawing and template. Glue the second doubler in place and weigh or clamp to the assembly.Same rules apply as far as location - stay clear of bulkhead #4 location etc.


The easiest and best way to locate the keel front to back is to sand the front-most part of the chine shelf flush to the angle of the stem piece.
If you are not comfortable using the tools listed further down on this page, at the very least, ask someone for help. After a few boat projects you'll be a balsa expert.For the balsa strips I'd go for a harder quality than the sheets (if available). It's not hard to do if you've got some basic tools and the means and skill to solder with a basic solder iron. Align them at the pinnacle of the stem and check alignment at the rear edge where they join.
If care has been taken so far in cutting out the parts and aligning, nothing should be too far out of alignment.When things look good place drops of thin CA along stem piece, bulkheads and deck stringers. Try not to have the doubler extend passed the bottom of the keel, it's better if you err on the other side. This way you'll have an edge that should correspond with the front-most edge on the keel.As you can see on the picture below, I didn't do it this way, but it would have made things a little easier.
I like to work from the center and towards each end so it adds some well needed stability to the keel. These strips will be used as structural stringers and for deck coaming, so there are no bends or anything to consider. At this point, place a piece of tape over the joint to temporarily hold them together and flip the deck over with the tape facing down. Instead I eye-balled it in by looking at the profile and having the curved part of the keel tangent the angle of the stem. These strips could be substituted for basswood or spruce if available in a pinch.I've had mixed luck with basswood strips. Pin or weigh the deck down on the building board.Mark the bulkhead locations across the same way as you did on the chine shelf. I order most of my wood online and thin basswood strips often has the grain run out the side of the strip causing it to split when bending. This is part two where the hull frame is finished and getting ready for planking.Continue reading "Build an RC Boat Hull - Part Two"Aug 31, 2012RC Model Boats - An Introduction to Building Your OwnLearn to build RC model boats the easy and inexpensive way.
