    πŸ“ Wheelhouse

    Hi All
    Cracking on with the wheelhouse and playing with the LED lights.
    I drop the wheelhouse lights from 4.5 to 3 volts which made them look a bit more yellowish.

    πŸ“ Decking

    Hi All
    Installed the deck and filled around the edges.
    Gave the hull a quick run and it handle very well.
    Good turning circle and at 50% throttle still over scale speed.
    3/4 throttle looks about right.
    About to start planking.

    Hi All
    Installed the rudder with oiler, also installed the 60 turn motor with metal joint from banggood.
    Installed the 4.5KG servo with linkage to the rudder.
    First coat of Matt 37 which showed up a few spots that require a bit of filling.

    Impressive work CanabusπŸ‘
    Construction is very similar to the Billing Danish fish cutter I am slowly restoring and converting from static to RC so picked up some useful tips from your photos. Thanks 😊
    Cheers, Doug 😎
