    Hi.
    Not scratch built,and not quite finished yet but from the italeri 1.35 Plastic kit.Sails really well, and has a good turning circle even using the three rudders provided with the kit.I have fitted all three shafts but only connected two at this time.Centre shaft is running free but I am able to connect a third motor if I wish.
    Customised to suit my likes and NOT exactly to real time paint scheme.
    Front and rear guns rotate on separate servo systems from a six channel Futaba system.Also has an engine noise generator coupled in with forward/reverse.
    Really nice addition to the fleet on the water.
    On a separate note the video clip is of a smoke generator just fitted to my Corvett and not connected to the Schnellboot.Just a tester. (Motor: MFA Torpedo 400 x 2) (ESC: Mtroniks Viper) (8/10)

    That video is of your Flower class HMS Bluebell.
    Perhaps you should of put it on Bluebells harbour log ?
    Love the smoke affect.

    Hi Pete.
    Thank you.
    The smoke generator is made by a chap called Colin Graham.
    (I attach a photo of his leaflet that came with it)I think the telephone number is now incorrect)
    I bought it from EBay and he still sells them on there.
    The one I have was an early model and he has upgraded them a lot since.
    They are very good as you can see from the video.
    I have bought another from him,but must be honest that have also bought the components and made one up myself.
    Take care.
    Bill
