    having figured out where to pit the battery i am going to power it with a NIMH battery in the middle of the ship and fit the speed controller and radio in the mid hold area, I don't want to tidy it up to much as its charm is the Heres one some some one knocked up look i found a date of 1958 scribbled on the mid deck and Mexico so I can assume it was made aboard a boat then
