    I have planked the hull but am trying to improve the results by painting, rubbing down, filling and repeating until satisfied. and the lights are controlled by radio and multi switch to separate the running lights from the room lights

    just to let you know my latest build (Finnmarken blog) has in excess of 100 lights ( i am experimenting with the wiring) and at present they are in parallel with a resistor on each deck(5 plus running lights) and are working OK. I would not run in series because if 1 fails I would have a major problem finding the faulty light!

    My sailing was dinghy racing and I know the button on top of mast is the highest point, the crows nest is just below the button as the person in the crows nest has to hold onto something!

    all the receivers (5)I have got are only 6volts, so suggest try again with receivers getting 6volt supply ( I always have wiring problems but am supported by members of this club)

    my sympathy goes to Martins family and a sad loss to this club. His knowledge and help to other club members will be sorely missed. He spent a lot of time on Skype helping me sorting some of the problems I had with my models!

    Dave,
    if I read this correctly, this is what you want. I have a graupner mc 26 and I have a duo switch so that I can switch my LED running lights and 109 LEDs for lighting!
    I enclose the wiring diagram

    Peter,
    Just remembered!. when you do water test make sure hose from keel to pump is connected(or outlet above water level) when I did mine I found I had buggered the pump and was waiting for replacement and forgot about the pipe and when I did my water test I notice it started to get sluggish and on investigation found at least 1/2 inch of water in the hull, I had just tucked the hose in the hull!!!!!!๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚

    Well done peter, quality puts mine to shame, hope you enjoy it when in water as it has great speed and manoeuvrability. Put some other boats in the water and do a slalom between them(only kidding)!

    After experimenting on where the electrics go, I have decided to put the battery in the front hold And made up an open ended box for it!The rear end contains the ESC, servo for the rudder and a fuse. As there will not any access between the two ends I have inserted two short tubes( see Photos) through the cutouts of the hull framework for the wires so the wiring can easily accessed if there is any problems. the receiver will be in a space on the first floor deck as will the on/off switches. I have checked the system and can operate the propeller and the rudder, I will be putting in a duo switch so will be able to operate the running lights and lighting separately.
    I am now in the process of planking the hull below the side panels(never done this before as previous boats had plastic of fibreglass hulls) and enclose photoโ€™s of first attempt, I carefully built the bow up not only shaped where it fitted but also had to chamfer the cuts to get a close fit, minor errors will be covered before final painting.
