    I know the hms Agincourt I was on it in uk a couple of times in 1966 when we did a NATO cruise hit Plymouth, liverpool and then did rest of Europe n sea exercises with Agincourt Iโ€™m not sure what that type was I think I have a pic or two. F25? Iโ€™m guessing it had open gun mount n bridge was not like ours. They had rum we had Coca Cola a little swapping worked well.

    My DE in 1:96 for rails ordered from Tomโ€™s model works. I 3D the doors, guns, ASROC, bits, anchors, small boats, heli deck nets and side fins. I found sailors on some kids n did eBay sailors too. There is so much out there pay or free for 3D. Once you have a file you can adjust its scale Or play with it. I would try to find online free stuff. The printer is about $300-$600 and reels are $25-$30. I tried 3D rails but they didnโ€™t work I used brass or plastic rod as rail support as t is very fragile. Loved doing the 3D I used my grandsons printer he loaned me.

    You have a nice powerful engine n esc. If hooked up n it runs backwards just swap one of the 3 wired to motor. It will make a cool outboard running on a 1200 ma or 2000 ma battery all u need is a servo to move engine left ir right otherwise rudder is needed.

    I bashed mine back to its original ship MSCO minesweeper Mine is msco 49 Lorikeet I spent 4 years on it for weekends. I worked over one weekend doing overhaul. I was helmsmanโ€™s and radar tech. My uncleโ€™s the navigator n signalman, my boss. I knew every inch of that ship here are done pics. Mainly the bow had to be changed and pilot house.

    RNinMunich your right except we are being invaded in the name of that religion. It isnโ€™t Isreal it is the western world! In USA we have millions that crossed the border n not vetted if health checked. Almost all makes of military age. We feed, cloth, give then cash cards, free laundry in the hotels n all benefits each state offered. Meanwhile our vets n homeless are on streets. They go in groups n kick or hit with sticks the citizens. All they knew was chaos n now cause it here. It is worse in Europe, Japan and Australia. It isnโ€™t against one religion itโ€™s against all who are not them. They have come to west illegally for benefits and a larger number for religion. If your not of them your an infidels and will be taken out. I agree we wonโ€™t be here to see but our family will. Iโ€™m buying more kits befire they get outlawed n our ponds taken over. Our parks have been here in Massachusetts already. Stay safe all you model ship sailors n vigilant. Hobby shops closing, paint supplies dwindle as well as materials like Balsa. Sorry to put this out there but it does effect our hobby!

    I had sane problem after a dozen years in Puerto Rico I became accustomed to weather. Moved back to Massachusetts n I freeze in summer.

    Iโ€™m just about done with my DE1040 Garcia 5 foot ship. I have printed the side stabilizer paddles n will put on next. A few paint touch ups n itโ€™s finally done. I need to build the DASH drone as final part.

    It looks beautiful. I sold last year a boiler made here in Massachusetts. It worked on AC power. I thought I could convert it to using stereo to heat it. I decided to just sell it off. It was made in early 1900. It worked n had a piston motor n flywheel.

    Iโ€™m not sure what you have but check on Exosomes. They are a stem cell derivative for regenerative medical. It can rejuvenate a lot of things like organs, skin, muscle, bone. In USA a process called PrP can make it from your blood. Overseas you can get it from a few places as rules easier. There is one company that has fda approved drug master file approval. It has no dna or live cells n is the only one you can use in USA. It has been shipped overseas to a few countries and they export licenses. I have friends who used it with good results. One fixed his knee so he didnโ€™t need knee replacement. It worked very fast. Read up on it Google exosones therapy for ( fill in whatever you have as problem) your born with exosomes t birth but they slow down after about 50 yrs. I would look at the injectable form for best results. It is real n the newest medical field rejuvenation of inflammation of cells. It has as a side effect nothing except it wonโ€™t fix disease your born with in some cases. Do some research on Google sorry to hear of your situation.

    I served aboard USN Lorikeet MSCO-49 in early 60โ€™s. My uncle served too aboard and was my boss as navigator. I was helmsman. It was parked next to the Colgate clock sign in NJ side of Hudson River in NYC. I wanted to build a model but my uncle told me Calypso was made from a MSCO. I got that kit for a few hundred on eBay. I started with the hull. Had to redo the bow. Did the deck. I redid with wood n plastic card the wheelhouse and engine room. After that just did detailing. I also did kit bash of a smaller model years back but the calypso really went well just went backwards in time. Hope this could help I still have pics of the real one but there is a lot online. The mine sweeping gear I know n used to set up. I knew every inch of that ship.

    Do you still have the hammock STL file? I was going to move from my DE 1040 to the constitution. The big Revell kit. I got free from hobby shop that closed in Dec. the basic hull was built n some mast parts. I have a Flashforge 3D printer. Your ship is magnificent way past my patience level.

    Had house fire with Lipos too in 2006 I wasnโ€™t allowed them in house for a long time. A battery manufacturer gave me lion to test A123 batteries bought out by Sony then LG. They are as you stated heavier n diff voltage. With better chargers n taking care I went back to Lipos. Still have Lions around. I donโ€™t do any big battery packs like before tho. 2 n 3 cell 600 mah to 2300 mah. Iโ€™m more carful n use a ceramic jar to store them. Iโ€™m using dry cells in my sailboats n Nicaea in transmitter. My house burning cost $500,000 in repairs n rebuilding. Did rebuild in 6 months. I still have new nicad pacs around too but they are just in a storage box

    When in Hollywood a few weeks ago for Grammys I passed by Warner brothers. It was totally flat, all this section was gone. This area housed the back lots that were investor movies. All gone. By the time I was leaving 2 months passed and they had started building foundations. Nobody knows if itโ€™s studios or just offices or a shopping mall. The main warners area with the water tower is still intact. When I got home to MA where two houses were now stands an apartment complex almost built. It seems you can only rent not own houses anymore. Houses are bought up n rented or turn down to add multi family buildings. Lakes we used to float boats now are part of private complexes. Only a town owned park n lake are left near me. Model plane airfields are also fast going away. I have one club field and school yards to fly in. My uncle is 95 n builds ships. He is in NY. No place to run them there. Our town flying field was lost years ago. It became a soccer field for private club. Iโ€™ll just keep building but Iโ€™m running out of places to store them. I liked the bad landing n crashes it made space. Iโ€™m making a trip Friday to another state to go to a hobby shop n stock up. Cheers keep the building hobby alive

    So far Iโ€™m almost done. After lot of 3D printing n parts buying I think itโ€™s almost done. I have rails n helo safety nets ready to paint. Last will be repairing n touch ups here are pics of the 1040 DEcGarcia. I also have pucks of the 1052 it was given to me before our local hobby shop closed for good in December. I added 3D guns n ASROC. Call added few more details. I also got when shop closed a Cutty Sark n Constitution large sized plastic. Constitution is located here in Boston MA. I had been aboard a few times. Both are partially started kits. Plenty to do. Now back from Hollywood where I built a few plastic ships and went to Grammys. Here are some pics
