[Score: 8/10] Twin Propellors (4 Blade) Direct Drive to a 2-550 motors (4 Blade) Powered by Lead Acid (6v) 10Amp/h Batteries Controlled Through 50amp ESC - Comments: This is a Graupner Premium Line.I wasn't happy with the universals and plastic 3 bladed props.Replaced the universals and changed props to 4 bladed brass.Also changed the prop shaft to a threaded 4mm shaft which I happened to have in my spares.She runs a lot better now with these changes.Still to come is lighting and sound.

Amsterdam Tug renovation/converstion by PMBDTCentral Sub-Lieutenant   Posted: 3 months ago
Picked up a rather battered wooden hulled Amsterdam tug last Thursday. The intention is to give it some much needed TLC and convert it to one of the French Tenace Class tugs. It will be used as my clubs camera / rescue boat so accuracy and detail will come second to the functionality of its role. Currently I have stripped out everything except the motor so I can fit some strengthening and improve the watertightness of the hull

Hi Colin, looks like Humbrol / Revell Deck Green to me. As used e.g. on RN WW2 ships in the North Atlantic. Did my HMS Hotspur with this. Cheers Doug 😎 Hi Jugge: congratulations your Amsterdam is a super job 👍👍👍 Do not apologise for your English - you do not want to hear my attempts at Swedish! 😲😡

Amsterdam by jarvo Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 3 months ago
I see that you have modified her to her later state, no lifeboats and the large towing winch on the rear deck. What motor does yours have? Mine is running a 24v motor with a 90mm brass prop. Mark
