Complete overhaul to date Wheelhouse completed with working lights and radar not to be confused with the one on Mayham. Hull started Motors,Bowthuster,Props Rudders and corts done so far More next year
Built one of these a few years ago. Great for tug towing and rescue work. Had an Action mixer at one time and with two separate 6v batteries worked great. I could literally spin in the spot. Moved to twin motor control as I used to fly model planes and was used to using all four stick axis. Not sure a bow thruster will work well on this model as it is so manouverable. Makes into a nice realistic model and I wish I had kept mine. If I were to make another I would make a better seal of the rear deck, it leaks like mad in it's designed fit. I eventually made a raised coaming round the opening. Coming along nicely.
Yes but the centre part of back deck on the Al Khubar is removable so you can get to the rudders and motor couplings. The instructions suggest a close fitting sheet of plasticard will suffice. Didn't for me as the deck get very wet even in calm waters. Hope you have better luck than me.
