Welcome to my website - John's fettling pages, Lockdown Projects, Free Steam Engine Plans, RC Aircraft and Boat Plans and RC Flying, Fishing, Long Tail Hydroplane Power Boat Racing and other events in Thailand

This site will be updated and increase in size as more interesting projects are found.

The information contained in this site has been collected over the years of building and flying various aircraft models and building working model steam and jet engines. Most engine projects can be completed with a mini lathe (mini lathe) and drill press and for ease, I have used a mini CNC mill on some projects. Aircraft projects need a fair amount of skill to produce an flyable aircraft - have a go and then you will know. I have included free steam engine plans, free RC ship and boat plans including a Clyde Puffer and Deep Sea Tug projects, Steam train and RC Tank information and reference material, even an RC Duck and Steam Powered Helicopter- There is a new updated section on Longtail Hydroplane Racing, RC Power Boat Racing with articles on Brushless motors and 26cc Zenoah Powered Deep V racing with videos and photographs.

The other pages are a general look at RC in Thailand with reviews of airfields, various unique sporting events that occur in Thailand like Long tail boat racing and some that I find interesting like paintball and BB combat. A new section has been added on Fishing in Thailand - See photos of the Giant Mekong Catfish - Fly Fishing in Thailand - check out the Scuba Diving in Thailand Page - Don't forget my For Sale Page A section on full size hovercraft is also included - a passion of mine for a long time, with free hovercraft plans along with radio controlled hovercraft plans and videos.
