    Not had much time for this recently, but recently discovered a "slimline "ESC which will give me a little bit more room to play with and so back to the drawing board so to speak ๐Ÿ˜€. As previously stated, it's a fun project which hopefully will have it's maiden voyage soon ๐Ÿ˜€

    380 motor x 2 arrived this afternoon, prop shafts and rudders installed ๐Ÿ˜€.
    Sometimes it feels like an old mfi cupboard to build, instructions are not the greatest, almost like you look at the illustrations and then make your own mind up as to which part is the correct one๐Ÿคฃ. Going to be a long build with work commitments etc, hey ho ๐Ÿ˜€

    Good morning IanL.1, thanks for your message - just trying to catch up. In short, the answer to your question is no. This was a kit from TRUMPETรˆER which my stepson bought and then couldn't take on so my wife bought it from him for me. I wish I was that talented in the scratch build department, however - God willing, health and eyesight withstanding I might get there as plenty of encouragement from everyone on this site. All the best with regards to 3d printing, again something I'm interested in but no room in the inn so to speak ๐Ÿ˜Š

    Well as mentioned earlier on in the week, after I'd posed the question regarding commerations at work; HMS NELSON went to work and the response was excellent. Had a couple of responses via the HR team, one had a relative who was on the landing craft and another who was 17 at the time and was serving on Nelson's sister ship Rodney.
    Very happy with the positive feedback and glad that I posed the question.

    Nice looking boat, unfortunately not enough experience to offer any advice on this; however, I'm sure there's plenty of help on this site from other members. Don't worry- we don't bite ๐Ÿ˜

    Managed to cut out the main body in 2 halves plus the floats. The body shell is pretty basic and no interior as such, so I'll be getting my thinking cap on to see what I can make.

    Posed the question at work regarding 6th June and as nothing happening, so I said would it be OK to bring in HMS NELSON for the day and create a display as such. Given the thumbs-up ๐Ÿ‘ so did a little bit of "tarting up" the carrying case to use as a backdrop and following up with a print out to display regarding "her " involvement in the Normandy landings.

    Finally managed to get a start on the Calypso, glass and portholes installed in the forward observation chamber and the submersible is made. Had to order two propellers from Cornwall model boat supplies, as the original ones were missing. Next to order the motors so that they can be installed along with the rest of the running gear, then to ballast etc. Bit of a 'mare sorting out so many small pieces as the blister packs not labeled and the accompanying photos of parts in the instructions is not the greatest; shouldn't grumble as this kit is over 20 years old and not in a rush ๐Ÿ˜€
