hi im new to these forums, i have a nordkap trawler by billings, and found the plans not very good, does anyone know how to fit up radio gear and mounting, what ballast do i need etc, as it does not explain any in plans, is there anyone out there that can send me pics of hot to do it please,, colin:thinks
Hi Colin Welcome to the forum. Are you a complete novice regarding RC? We will be able to help but it is useful if we know what level of detail you require. There is a section on this site All things RC which will help with the basics. I see you are located in Queensland, Australia so if any of your country men are reading they may be able to offer local help. If you have a local club that could be a starting point. Radio gear is used in all the modelling types so it doesn't need to be a model boat club. I am attaching a picture of a friends Norcap so when you respond to this post I can get some detail pics of the details you require Dave 😀
hi dave merry xmas mate, no im not a novice i have built a couple of times before but the billings plans are not very detailed, and does not show what ballast to use, where to mount radio gear, i justed wanted to know if anyone had pics of mounting gear in the hull, also what is best filler to make the hull water proof. colin
Hi Colin Merry Christmas to you too. I will get some pics of Malcs model interior in the near future and post details online. I usually cover my hulls in fibre cloth and resin but tissue paper and sanding sealer will also seal the hull. More to follow Dave
