Very nice job Mike,👍👍
Hope the Danish fish cutter I'm currently renovating / rebuilding and converting from static to RC will turn out half as well as that! 😉
Can you 'sail' her as well as motoring?
Cheers, Doug 😎

Response by Glyn on the 20th Aug 2018
You've really done a good job of the American Scout - very inspirational. What did you make the railings out of? I also have a Scout (which was given to me many, many years ago in a semi-complete state) that I'm currently restoring, but not sure how best to tackle these particular items. Yours look pretty good, so I'd value your advice. Best regards, Glyn
Response by Mikep on the 21st Aug 2018
Thanks for the kind words Glyn, Railings are straight pins cut to length and horizontal railing are Thread.
Response by Glyn on the 24th Aug 2018
Got it - they certainly look the part. Best regards,
Glyn

Hi Jugge, all you need to do is fit a 'lighting board' like these-

to block the light going aft 👍
All the best, Doug 😎
Response by jugge on the 13th Mar 2018
Hi Doug
I have look at those light but its only 3 v and i need 6v
thanks anyway
// Jugge
Response by RNinMunich on the 13th Mar 2018
Hi Jugge, I didn't mean you should buy these lamps, just make some Light-boards, like in the pics, to add to your own lamps! 😉
Thin brass strip does the job and is dead easy to solder. 👍

OR; buy those complete lamps and simply wire them in series across your 6V supply: 3V + 3V = 6V 😊
Whatever; have fun doing it, cheers Doug 😎
