The sinking of Titanic caused the deaths of more than 1,500 people in one of the deadliest peacetime maritime disasters in modern history.

The RMS Titanic was the largest ship afloat at the time it entered service. Titanic was the second of three Olympic class ocean liners operated by the White Star Line, and was built by the Harland and Wolff shipyard in Belfast with Thomas Andrews as her naval architect. Andrews was among those lost during the sinking. On her maiden voyage, she carried 2,224 passengers and crew.

Occre San Ildefonso

In 1784 Work on the construction of the ship San Ildefonso began in Cartagena, based on a design by José Romero de Landa, who had been asked to build a 74-gun ship that would serve as a prototype for the future vessels of the Spanish Royal Navy, and under his direction.

Following favourable reports from her sea trials, she was adopted as the model for another seven ships that were built over the coming years, and which came to be known as the "Ildefonsinos".

After seeing action on numerous occasions, both in the Mediterranean Squadron and the Ocean Squadron, she took part in the battles of Cape St. Vincent, in 1797, and Trafalgar, in 1805. At Trafalgar, under Commodore Don José Vargas, and forming a part of the combined fleet's observation squadron, she was one of the fastest in the fleet. 34 of her crew members were killed and another 148 wounded.

Occre HMS Bounty with Cutaway Hull Section

Occre HMS Bounty with Cutaway Hull Section

Occre introduce another new kit. The Bounty features a cutaway in the hull which allows the internals to be seen.

Built in 1783 as a cargo ship, in 1787 she was purchased by the Royal Navy for the transporting of breadfruit from Tahiti to the Caribbean. The breadfruit was supposed to serve as cheap food for the slaves that worked in the sugar cane plantations.

She set sail from England on 23rd December 1787, under the captaincy of Captain William Bligh. After a 10 month voyage she finally arrived in Tahiti, later than planned. As a result of this delay they then had to wait 5 months before setting sail for the Caribbean, her final destination. During this voyage there was a mutiny on board the ship, led by Fletcher Christian. The mutineers then ordered Captain Bligh, along with 18 loyal seamen, aboard the ship’s launch and cast them adrift. Bligh managed the heroic exploit of reaching the island of Timor, after 41 days at sea.

Robbe Dusseldorf - Almost Ready to Run model boat kit

The full-size vessel
The Düsseldorf fire-fighting boat was developed and built by Rheinwerft GmbH & Co., based in Mainz-Mombach, for use in the Ruhr region of Germany. Equipped to cope with catastrophic events - whether it is a ship on fire, escaped oil or a harbour system in danger of explosion - the vessel's fire monitors can hurl water or foam a distance of up to 95 m, and a height of 45 m, operating at a pressure of 10.5 bar. The two twelve-cylinder V-engines generate a total power of 930 kW (1260 BHP), giving the vessel a maximum speed of around 37 km/hr.

The model
The model is pre-fabricated to such an extent that the only remaining work is the installation of a few fittings and the receiving system components. It is possible to complete the Düsseldorf in just a few hours, even if you have no prior modelling experience. The model is finished in a multi-colour paint scheme applied to a superb standard. The glazing panels consists of tinted plastic, and are fitted individually together with the window frames.

Introducing the Master Blaster...

... the unfeasibly small portable amp and speaker combo designed to give 100% authentic AUTO-LOOPING sound effects wherever you want them – ideal for model railways, boats – even dolls' houses.

•This unit runs for around three hours per charge and is LOUD (if you want it to be).
•The custom sounds are natural and do not sound digitised because they are not.

Occre Nuestra Senora del Pilar

The construction of this ship, based on plans and regulations established by José Antonio de Gaztaneta, took place in the Port of Cavite, in the Philippines, along with that of Nuestra. Sra. de Covadonga. Work began in 1731 and she was finally launched two years later in 1733. She had two bridges and a displacement of 1,000 tons, was fitted with 50 cannon as well as 10 swivel guns, mounted on quarter deck and forecastle. For twenty years she plied the route from Mexico to Manila and in 1750 underwent a complete refit in the Port of Cavite. In 1750, on her last voyage, she set sail from Manila bound for Acapulco. Despite being overloaded, and contrary to the opinion of both pilots and Master, her Captain insisted on weighing anchor at the beginning of September. En route for the Mariana Islands, in the Pacific, they began to have difficulties, after sailing into a heavy storm, and she sank taking all of her crew down with her.

Billing Boats HMS Warrior

Billing Boats HMS Warrior

Warrior was designed and built in response to an aggressive French shipbuilding programme which saw the introduction of the first iron-clad warship La Gloire designed by the brilliant naval architect Stanislas Charles Henri Dupuy de Lome. Determined to see off this challenge to the supremacy of the Royal Navy the then First Lord of the Admiralty, Sir John Somerset Pakington, determined to build a ship so superior in terms of quality, speed, size, armament and armour that it would be inconceivable to France that she could take Britain on in a sea battle. When commissioned by Captain the Hon. Arthur Auckland Leopold Pedro Cochrane, on August 1st 1861, Warrior was the largest warship in the world, at 9,210 tons displacement she was fully 60% larger than La Gloire. The ship underwent minor modifications after a sea trial. In June 1862, she started active service in the Channel Squadron, patrolling coastal waters and sailing to Lisbon and Gibraltar. Having introduced a revolution in naval architecture, by 1864 Warrior was superseded by faster designs, with bigger guns and thicker armour. By 1871 she was no longer regarded as the crack ship she had once been, and her roles were downgraded to Coastguard and reserve services. In May of 1883 her fore and main masts were found to be rotten, and not considered worth the cost of repair, Warrior was placed in the reserve, eventually converted to a floating school for the Navy and re-named Vernon III in 1904. Put up for sale as scrap in 1924, no buyer could be found, and so, in March 1929 she left Portsmouth to be taken to Pembroke Dock and converted into a floating oil pontoon, re-named again as Oil Fuel Hulk C77. By 1978, she was the only surviving example of the 'Black Battlefleet' - the 45 iron hulls built for the Royal Navy between 1861 and 1877.

Aeronaut Ramborator - Springer Tug

Aeronaut Ramborator - Springer Tug

Springer Tugs operate as push boats on American rivers, where they are employed for transport tasks and manoeuvring other vessels. They are of very simple design, and can be produced quickly. These vessels can also be built as very simple models, with the result that Springer Tug matches developed in England and America with these models. The rules are simple, and only define the actual hull, power system and rudder, with the aim of ensuring close competition. A few years ago the same wave made its way over to Germany.

These boats are a good choice for tests of skill, but they are also used to play team games of “waterball”. The models are always fitted out with simple equipment, and our version satisfies these requirements. The boat can be ready for the water after just a few hours of building.

The kit includes a fittings set which helps to produce a semi-scale model of attractive appearance.

The kit contains:
All plywood parts required to build the model, tabbed for accurate glued joints. The kit also includes strip material, propeller shaft and rudder, and a fittings set. The full-colour instructions include many stage drawings.

OcCre Dennis B-Type Bus

B-type buses were built in Walthamstow and replaced the previous X-type buses. The B-type had a seating capacity for 34 persons, 16 inside and 18 on the uncovered top deck and is considered to have been the first mass produced bus. The first of these buses began to carry passengers in 1911. By 1913 around 2500 had entered into service. This model was designed by Frank Searle, who was chief engineer at the LGOC. It had a wooden frame, steel wheels a worm drive and chain gearbox. It had a top speed of 16 mph, which was above the legal speed limit at that time of 12 mph; however some of these buses could reach speeds of around 30-35 mph in the right conditions. A total of 900 B-type buses were used to move troops behind the lines during the First World War. The Imperial War Museum still conserves one of these buses, B 43, which was affectionately know as Ole Bill after the contemporary cartoon character. The original B 340 is still conserved at the London Transport Museum in Covent Garden, and has been restored.

Planet 5 2.4 Ghz 5 Channel RC Combo Sets

Planet 5 2.4 Ghz 5 Channel RC Combo Sets

Planet has been carefully and ergonomically designed with a new twin hand grip system that enables easy and safe handling of your radio, and at £45.95 they represent great value for money

Now available as a Transmitter, Receiver and Combo Pack so you can install this system to replace your old 27mHz or 35mHz set with ease at a very affordable price.

The Planet T5 transmitter and receiver feature Advanced 2.4GHz control. 2.4GHz is a worldwide frequency that has many applications and uses. 2.4Ghz technology creates the advantage for a ‘bound’ relationship between the Transmitter and Receiver. The setting up of this relationship is known as ‘binding’. In a ‘bound’ transmitter/receiver relationship the receiver is exclusively bound to your transmitter and can only respond to signals received from your transmitter. It will not respond or receive signals from any other device or transmitter transmitting on the 2.4GHz frequency band. Binding is done at the factory. Once a transmitter is bound to it’s receiver, re-binding of transmitter and receiver is not normally required.
