The first event for model boats at an air show at Biggin Hill. As It Is an air show there are no tickets on the gate (the event Is sold out) but you can still get a pass to show models so please contact me asap
I'm pleased with the results so far, working lights fitted so far:lower cabin,main mast,towing rear mast companion ways and 3 home-made deck flood lights (all led's) and I have test run the model on 6volt lead acid batteries and like the amount of grunt the large prop gives
When I first got hold of this sorry state the back had been cut out so the first job was to fill the gap with plasticard and then use fibre glass filler. The rubber strip that came with It was properly fitted around the hull and the hull and superstructure sprayed, a 65mm Kort nozzle with a 60mm prop and shaft was fitted and a 2 1/2 to 1 MFA 540 motor attached
This will be a scratch build @ 1/72nd scale based on a Fleetscale Hull, so far I have fitted the deck supports and fitted the front deck. I am using the running gear also from fleetscale and will be fitting a pair of brushless motors. These will run off of a 12 volt system, which will also run all the lights on the vessel.
