here is a photo build log of a new IOM i did for Simon robinson based on my VISION design
It;s been a while since I last posted’ a lot of stuff has been happening this year.
Firstly a 3D printed design have started to appear in America, Australia and the UK. this is the visionary IOM and can be purchased from Zachary Chan.
Secondly work has started on the Visionary RG65, this is also available as a 3D model and hopefully in the new year a Carbon moulded version will be available once trials have been done.
thirdly, an old design has been resurrected and is now complete and sailing. this is the VIPER design that has been revamped with a new deck and radio installation
Fourthly, RED5 is being developed in chile for production later this year, here are some pictures on the test boat
i would like to announce that the Visionary IOM is ready!!!
Visionary is modeled based on Dave Creed and Craig Smith Keel and rudder.
Custom servo box drop in for Hitec HS-5086wp direct drive.
This has proved quite popular this year with the lockdown as shown
Here are some photos of the vision rg65. This prototype was built in the UK
Here are some pictures and videos of a new rg65. This was created to see how thin the rg65 class could go.
Been a while since I posted any updates. Since then I have taken delivery of a new Malteser from mxcomponents and a KMR from ARS composites. This design is looking good on the water and is showing promise.
Also in collaboration with Zachary Chan I have created 3 models for 3d printing. Shown in the images. This will be available to buy and print at home
Firstly something OLD.
I have started to scan all of my fathers designs from the 1960s and 1970s, this will be hopefully completed by the new year.
Something BLUE and NEW
this year I have launched a new IOM called KMR (don’t ask). This was designed at the request of a client. The prototype has been moulded and will be on the water soon and this will be in production in the new year.
Thought it was time I updated this blog with what has been happening this year.
The Malteser is in production with a hull now in the UK, Holland, USA
The Wedge IOM continues to progress with now 28 boats been moulded and posted to owners in Thailand, USA, UK, New Zealand, Turkey, Belgium and Germany.
The Sledge RG65 has had new hulls built and sent out to their owners
The Sith RG65 has started production this year with boats being sold to France, Uk, USA, Germany, Holland and Georgia.
A New IOM Design – KMR (chimera) has been commisioned and finished for a Client in Germany, this is being CNC machined for manufacture later this year
Another Design in the process of being built is the Vision RG65
here are a couple of pictures from les robins showing somethings old and something new
the planked IOM is a “sleek” design and the blue boat is a SLICK RM. the white hull is a malteser IOM home build
