    This is my latest build and is from the Caldercraft range. It has taken me 3 months during the Covid 'lock down' period. It was challenging at times due to the poor information in the so called instruction book and not to scale drawing. The parts list in areas bore little resemblance to what was included in the contents however it makes up to be a very good model and it does help if you have your own stash of materials that you can substitute or make the parts you need or replace.
    I used an MFA geared motor at 2.5:1 ratio and a Viper 15 Amp ESC. I installed an electronic switch for the navigation lights and it should give a good effect during the darker afternoons/evening later in the year. In all it was a very satisfying build.

    A very nice looking boat.
    Well done.
    Always good to overcome unwanted problems in design faults.
    Be nice to see some below deck shots of your handy work.
    Bill.

    Beautiful build. Did you have any other drawings or photos of the real Milford Star to work to in your kit modification?

    In any event, it surely looks like you did a great job!

    Thanks Bill for your comments. A few photos attached of the 'workings below deck' as you asked.

    Thanks Peejay. There were a couple of other build blogs on the web that I looked at for clarification or their interpretation of the build. I managed to find 2 old photos of Milford Star which were good from a historical viewpoint but that was all. As I said, I am pleased with the finished article - a fellow Club member gave me some old sail material at our lake last Sunday so that is complete now.
