The stuffing box is packed with axle grease; the rudder is mounted awaiting control arm; motor mount is secured as is the motor. The motor had to be moved causing some redesigning issues ( for the purest) this could cause some questions, but I think with some planning the outcome will be respectable.

Hi Ron
You seem to be progressing well. I doubt if the motor placement will cause a problem as there is plenty of room to place the battery aft to obtain the correct waterline. You may need to consider opening a hole in the middle former to allow the battery to fit at the optimum position. I suggest you do a quick test float to see where your battery needs to fit.
If the wood is still untreated you could wrap the hull in cling film whilst testing

Hi all,

Has anyone got info on where you can source the plans or a kit for a Kingfisher? I'd love to have a go a building one but don't seem to be able to find a scrap of information on the model.

Cheers Jon
