Hello everyone,

My name is David Rogers, and I am the current Chairman of the HMS Illustrious Association and I am looking you your help.

We were recently contacted by someone who had over some 10 years, built a remote controlled model of the Aircraft carrier HMS Illustrious. (It's about 6 ft long) and they asked us if we would like to take possession of it. We Gladly accepted.

After collecting the model (On a Trailer), we believe that it requires some TLC. This is to say, that there are many of the features that were installed, may not work anymore, and or they are all different voltages etc. We were just wondering if there was anyone on here that would be interested in assisting us with a project, of getting her 'Ship Shape'.

If anyone could assist, please email us at:

Thanks in advance for your assistance in this.

David Rogers
HMS Illustrious Association
