    3000mah 6 cell lipo's
    Selling as part of estate, These are Turnigy 3000mah 20-30c discharge 6 cell packs.. All are in storage mode and have been well cared for. Β£15 each is a bargain, there is one with damaged heatshrink, cells are fine, no puffing, but that is Β£10 due to damage, or Β£60 for all of them in one go! posting lipos is very difficult, if you want them posting I will do it at cost, but if the package is opened, and they are destroyed, its your risk, no refunds, collection preferred. If you are going to Hooton show, Im not far away north Wirral

    8000mah 6 cell lipo as new
    Selling as part of estate,. This is a 6 cell Turnigy Nano-tech massive 8000mah! 25 to 50c discharge. As you can see, the tag is still on the leads, its well cared for, no puffing, and is in storage mode, The plane this was for was never flown and was unfinished, so I doubt this has ever been used. These are very expensive, well over Β£60 each plus postage, Ill offer this for Β£30 ono. Posting lipos is very difficult, I can use my hermes at cost which would be confirmed but its approx Β£6.00 due to weight, but it the package is opened, and the lipo is destroyed its your risk, as you are not supposed to post lipos, so collection is preferred.

    boat building jig
    Hi all, for the second time, Im disposing of a deceased estate. The chap was rc planes and helis, but, he was also building a boat for his wife as a present. I have taken on finishing the boat, but this appeared, I found the details here https://www.alwayshobbies.com/tools/workshop-organisers/hobbyzone-professional-building-slip-for-model-ships So based on the price of Β£50 plus postage new, I would offer this for Β£20. Its a very comprehensive jig, so must be worth that, and I need to sell it quick. Proceeds are returned to the widow. I live North Wirral, so if you are going to the Hooton show its not far to pick up. I can post at cost, but the base board is heavy so collection is preferred. Cash or paypal, but if you want it saving for a few weeks then I must ask for payment in full immediately.

    HMS Cottesmore
    I just thought I would post some photos of my HMS Cottesmore. She is still a work in progress. I have been working on her for about three years now.(in between other projects) I purchased the hull And running gear from Fleetscale. Everything else has been made by myself using odds and ends, bits and pieces including yogurt pots and a lot of LED's I have a few more years work to do before she is completed, lots more bits to make.

    Old Swordsman or Huntsman ?
    Purchased many moons ago in a sorry state, the wiring was a bit of rats nest, I tided it up and and ran it for a while then forgot about it. I have now restored it to its currant state but have not sailed it yet. Not sure if its a Swordsman or Huntsman and have no idea whose kit it is, I did have an Aerokits RAF Fire Tender and it seems to be the same sort of kit or maybe Veron? Fitted with MFA torpedo 850 and two 2200 mah lipos.
