    πŸ“ Slow going ...

    After building the mine laying rails I then purchased scale German mines , only to find out that they are 4mm wider than the rails on the boat, ...what to do , cut the mines (8) down and rework the base and wheels to fit the boats rails or move the rails wider ..... moving the rails ... slow going , found that the motors I have are more aircraft/drone use per the esc, , no reverse .... Hobbyking does have esc that will work , still need a couple of servos and a radio , just not sure if a 6 Chanel land/ boat radio or get a large channel stick radio would be better ... as always $$$$ is an issue .
    Work on the messy table as I fit cut and replace fittings and supports ...
    Smooth sailing to all...

    Not much progress of late , taking care of life matters and a limited cash flow has all but stopped forward movement. Hope to get a bit of free time soon to paint details , she will never be close to what is viewed here but it will be the best I can do ......stay tuned

    Happy Cruising All

    After a long time I am back trying to get a boat in the water, I have an old 32nd Parallel kit in mothballs unfinished. So to take an easier route I am converting an S 100 Italeria Schnellboot . Very slow going as there is little to no support locally so with out the net all would be lost......Given my current disability, this will be a 90/90 build , she will look good at 90 feet or 90 mph which ever works best....

    Coming along nicely , I have done the conversation of this kit myself some years ago when it first came out . I had to make the propshafts myself as the conversion kit wasn't available then but I found that it handled better using only one prop rather than the intended 3 props plus the lack of space inside the hull for the rest of the electrics.

    Hi Ron, did you ever try 3 props for comparison?
    If yours is the 1:35 italeri I don't see any problem with space for 3 shafts.
    I have an approx 1:35 MTB currently with 2 shafts, 'as seen and bought' next season I propose to fit a 3rd motor and shaft: port and starboard for cruising, switch-in centre motor for "All ahead flank"!

    BTW: I have a couple of kits for the S100 "Schnellboot, otherwise known as E Boat, E for EnemyπŸ˜‰, one Airfix and one Revell, both 1:72.
    I intend to fit them with 3 motors as well - 'Plastic Magic' 😁
    Motors already sourced from X-Drive, shafts will be home brew from silver steel and brass tube with sintered phosphor bronze bearings.
    "Nothing is impossible", I drive a Toyota πŸ˜‰πŸ˜‰
    Cheers Doug 😎

    I have a liking for italeri kits myself. Built the Vosper MTB in 2011 then the PT 109 a few years later. They really perform well either with single or triple props.

    Both of mine have 480 brushed motors, single props, and 2s Lipo 2200mAh. ideal for small ponds where you can maintain scale speeds and if easy on the throttle you can have a decent endurance before the battery goes flat.

    I am doing a lot of reading of posts online many back when this kit was new to the market.... as to my motor choice I winged it as I am not sure of what the motor sizes list here (300,500... etc etc) but did read a rule of thumb in that props should be equal to or better yet less than the diameter of said motor , so with brut strength and ignorance I have 3 Hobbyking ST3007, 1100KV that and a goal of keeping it light , thou I think I have read that 3.3 kg was ideal for scale ?....Again a 90/90 build , having lost all feelings in both hands from spinal stenosis I must accept what I can do now to what I once did or able to do with just a little more effort... Thank You All for your posts and help , and posting of videos online they bring me great pleasure and enjoyment ....Thank You
