    Thanks Colin, l think when the Canute first came out the hull was built in two sections, the later kits it changed to a one hull build. However l did have a problem with the stern planking which l switched to balsa blocks, not ideal l know.
    Good luck with the build and would be interested in some photos as you progress.
    Cheers for now

    Thanks for that Richard, the motor you have is similar to the one I am going to fit. If anything is missing from the kit I'll have to live with it and fabricate the parts myself. One problem is that the kit is 20 years old and the wood is very brittle if I soak it to bend it it disintegrates so I am now treating the wood before using it, nice little lockdown project.

    Hello Colin, l have been building the St Canute over the last two years, for me it’s been a challenge l have to admit but l am getting there, if you look under Richard7 l have posted a few pictures of the build, if you cannot find them let me know and l will post them again. Unfortunately for Billing Boats it’s not uncommon to find pieces missing, l had two brass parts missing on the forward winch fortunately l had purchased the model through Cornwall Model Boats so they acted on my behalf to obtain these parts which too about 12 weeks. I have attached a picture of the winch and motor that l am fitting.
    All the best
    Richard

    I have been given a billings model kit of the steam tug St Canute, this model was started about 20years ago by a friend of mines' husband, who had just about assembled the frames before he ran out of interest or was too busy at work, so it ended up in his loft. I have now ended up with it, my question is; " has anybody built a r/c model of St Canute and if so what motor did they put in it?" I do have a couple of spare 555's so I could use one of those if suitable. Anybody got any ideas.
