    It's a Graupner premium line ARTR! ;-/ Wanted some 'quick fun' while working on more complex constructions (HMS Hotspur H Class Destroyer 1936, 1:72 and Type IA U26 also 1936).
    Didn't work out that way! On first test of motors and ESC I discovered that the shafts were so badly fitted that they were binding ;-( So back in dry dock for some hull surgery! That's why some inputs are missing above. Plan is to gradually add functions and special effects; lighting, gun controls, magicians Flash Paper for gun flashes. Maybe fired using my old glow-plugs!!??
    Now I'm freshly retired I have more time for this ;-), as long as Gisela doesn't drag me off around the world too often ;-) I also have HMS Belfast from the same series (approx 1:128) also awaiting fitting out. More soon - don't hold your breath please ;-) in the pipeline is some 'Plastic Magic' with Ark Royal, Hood and Bismark all to 350 scale ca 70-80cm. Sorry been in Munich for over 30 years don't think in inches any more (except when buying mag wheels for the chariot!)
    Cheers, and as my German boating friends say 'Immer ein Handbreite Wasser unterm Kiel!) = I wish you always a hand-widths water under your keel.
    I sail on the lake in the Ostpark near me in Munich. Very convenient, right next to the Biergarten! ๐Ÿ˜Ž (Motor: 600) (ESC: Graupner Navy V30R) (5/10)

    Beautiful battleship Doug, nice creation, congratulations.

    I wanted to ask you some questions:
    What do you think (I mean pros and cons, drawbacks, quality, etc. etc.) of the engine 600 engine and the Graupner Navy V30R?
    What is the total weight of the vessel.

    I ask for a friend:
    How did you go about accessing the RC part (motor, axis, esc, receiver, servo, batteries, etc. etc.) of the ship?
    Where did you cut the lid?

    Do you have videos of navigation and viewing the opening to access the hold?

    I hope the text is understandable.

    Handsome, but too large for me. I really admire the skill and workmanship in producing a model like this. Good luck ๐Ÿ˜‰
