    Just static Colin thanks. The hook is from some straps from a 1/10 RC 4WD.

    Thanks Rick

    Well done, it looks great, does the crane operate or just a static feature. Is the hook from a piece of jewellery as it looks like the one on my wife's necklace.
    Cheers Colin.

    Best I can do with only one pair of hands.
    Things established today.
    At full steam no water comes up the anchor chain ways.
    Steering is much easier without using the steerable drives.
    My chosen car ESC’s do not need cooling

    Yes and I’ve a lot of practice and fine tuning ahead but it’s very promising. So little rpm is needed. πŸ‘

    That is always a problem especially with separate throttles and tank steering πŸ˜‚

    It’s showing the potential for rain ☹️

    A bath of water doesn't figure in the bigger picture of 10 months work and well over a grand in materials and parts 😎
    The UK has just experienced the wettest May on record so the plants are fed up πŸ˜‚

    What is the length of the tub? 4’ save the water my wife will say. She would use it to water plants in the garden, though you’ve probably pulled the plug by now, eh.
