    hI guys
    about the dusseldorf I would follow the advice about bonding the deck just to be safe from water entering and safe gaurding the electrics I will bee installing mine on a self made ledge on the upper deck just beneth the cabin its a bit messy but once the cabins back on it will look ok
    ive got all the switch and sound modual "dont wanna get those wet lol" just got to figure out the battery arrange ments for the cran and anchor now I was going to use the main motor batteries which I have two of @6v each but worried about run time on the model its self any ideas ????? lets me know

    hI steve
    yep will go with the halfords enamels they seem to be the best suited for the job I did my pt 15 with them and it turned out ok with a coiple of coats of clear laquer like you suggested got justabout all the bits for the boat now "its cost a fortune" with all the robbe radio gear and electrics but the next boat I will source alternatives which having browsed the net are very easily obtainable I think Im going to do a vosper by nautical marines looks a great kit.
    well I hope to attend the next funday there only two waters around here one is shared with boaters and another is club membership so I guess Ill join them Im new to the boat thing mainly done helis,tanks,trucks and cars but I seem to enjoy the boat thing more "getting old I guess"anyway thanks for responding see you sometime

    hI gregory thanks for comments on my pt 15 I am just starting my dusseldorf boat and I think I will scrap the crane thats in the kit and get a more realistic one I dont find some of the instructions nor parts on this kit very good considering the price so I will do a bit of adjusting to make it look a bit better I hope.
    I hope to complete it in time for the fun day in sept "fingers crossed"
