    Wow!๐Ÿ˜ฎ
    Why bother with RC?
    Get in and drive her yourself!๐Ÿ˜€
    Seriously though!
    Looking forward to seeing how you equip her, not to mention how you launch her!
    Plenty of scope for special functions and pyrotechnics in a hull that size.๐Ÿ‘
    Keep us informed please.
    Good luck, cheers, Doug ๐Ÿ˜Ž

    It must have been back in the '70's I remember seeing a fleet of model warships that could be sat in and operated. There was a frigate. an aircraft carrier and a submarine. I saw them at a waterways rally on a canal somewhere but don't know the location of their home dockyard. Then there are the ones used in the Scarborough battle re-enactments.

    Cheers, Nerys.

    I remember something very similar operated buy the RN based on narrowboat hulls around 50 or 60 foot long. I have memories of these attending Lincoln Water Festival on the Brayford Pool in the centre of Lincoln in the late 70's too.

    Carlos Have faith my friend it will float!!

    I agree Ian๐Ÿ‘
    First thing to do would be to check for obvious cracks / holes, then float her and load to the waterline to find out what she can carry as equipment plus ballast.

    Lovely looking model. A few more pictures would be appreciated if you have them. I am considering adding RC to the Trumpeter Hood at 1.2M long.๐Ÿ˜Š
