Did you finish putting your spot light in place for your Krick Atlas Crane?
Response by saintsalvio on the 1st May 2016
I made an auxiliary cabin on the sovrastructure that contains circuits and point the search light toward the crane action space I posted some pics before
Response by figtree7nts on the 1st May 2016

Original 2 channel Sanwa radio fitted and working fine. Lights, working radar, water canon, winch, horn and bow thruster all of the 2 channel by using the trims and micro switches.

lucky find - Posted: 3 years ago by paulsmith
This boat was pulled up from our local pond by one of the fishermen .No one has a clue how long it has been down there but must have been a very long time .So I was set a challenge to sort it out I got one of the servos working and the speed controller working OK just shows no matter how long something has been under water it can work.
I did get the motor running but as you see not wise to use.So I have put some pics on of my progress up to now to have a look at.

😊 Excellent job, I have just restored a tugboat that was covered in bird muck and had been sitting outside for sometime, so I know how hard it can be. But how satisfying when complete 😊

Revell 1/144 Fair Play Tug Boat - Posted: 3 years ago by saintsalvio
I love this Tug since I saw a you tube outbound Hamburg video so I checked a kit and finally realized it, If I had the skill I would have micromotorized it but I'm not capable of, sorry!

Response by Colin H. on the 27th Sep 2015
My wife has 2 dolls houses which take up a space 9feet long 6feet high and 3 feet deep. Twice the space of 8 of my largest models, but I can take mine to shows and the sailing venues. She got jealous and got her own boats now, and between us we have 31, and now I have to takeher with me, ITS GREAT working on models together and sailing together.
Keep collecting and sailing, the Zwarte Zee looks great lucky begger.
