    Very nice static model that has been converted to power, now all I have to do is finish her build.
    My first model "PRIDE OF FIFE"
    Built her a few years ago after buying the hull at a car boot sale. Great learning curve for my introduction to model boats.

    Picked this up via my local club "for sale" notices, in need of a good refit, will go nicely with the one I have just started.๐Ÿ‘

    Ah! Great minds think alike. I have acquired several abandoned projects by advertising, and have a few kits I purchased new for my retirement, having completed a few I am currently having a time-out and doing a canvas painting of a ww11 spitfire but will soon be back in the saddle and on with the build of the AZIZ tug I started a while back. Do any of you guys suffer with the curse of mentally planning your build in the middle of the night?โ›ต
    Good luck in YOUR retirement

    Holy-moly! that's great work. Iv'e recently had my first go at a plank on frame, a clinker built "Nantucket" whaleboat, I got it completed, including harpoons, lances, oars etc. but never did make and fit the the knees as we were packing to move home. Thanks to your post, I am now inspired to return to the build and finish it properly ๐Ÿ‘

    This being my first serious foray into Rx-tx, I am having some difficulty in binding.
    My question is, do I need a specific brand/type of reciever to be compatible with my spectrum dx6i transmitter?
    If so, can anyone recommend which one I need to source and where I may purchase one?
