    Hi Doogle.
    Looking good.
    Always a scratch the head moment when you first start a new project getting it lined up and true.
    I am sure you have it in mind but are you going to put at least one prop shaft support bulkhead across the beam so that you donโ€™t get any prop/prop shaft whip/vibration?.
    I would suggest one at the motor end where shaft enters tube and one on the plastic bulkhead former.
    The running gear is quite a length from point of entry in the hull to each motor.
    Just my thoughts.
    Regards Bill ๐Ÿ‘
    Never give up.It will come right in the end.

    Not had much time at the moment, managed to get a bit more progress this evening.
    Dry fit of the prop shafts to see where I need to put the motor's, got a pair of 340 brushed which were in my spare box. I'm trying out my homemade mounts and will see how they work rudder tube in place after I'd relocated it. The hole produced by Trumpeter was off the mark. A dry fit with the rudder before any adaptation showed the rudder fitting at an alarming angle. Hey ho, hopefully I can have more time tomorrow ๐Ÿ™ƒ
