    Many thanks for both replies, I was looking at the water version - I have been told the Glycol version leaves deposits on the superstructure. The real question was stability, if you have a full take of water - Possible irrelevant as the tank is small would it affect the stability of the ship?

    As for my next build I am looking at HMS Devonshire, the first Royal Navy Guided Missile Destroyer. My last Build HMS Blake (See Post) has rotating Radar that was my limit. I would like to push the boat as to say and add some smoke from both funnels. I have seen some smoke generators on offer and was wondering about stability as the water evaporates up the funnel.

    I will be looking to rotate the two main Aerial on the ship and was wondering about moving turrets - Or would that be step to far this will be my four build.http://model-boats.com/sys_files/graphics/smileys/S09.gif

    Bought from GT Sitek as the Running gear, yes she is heavy however I placed her in the water for the first time last month and she actually sits quite well in the water and needs no ballast - I am using two 12V 3700mAh SC NiMH Battery Pack.

    Will post some videos when they decide to put some water back in our pond.

    Yes, it has not been in the water as yet, the motors run and it is all fitted out with speed controllers and servo for the rudder. I need to test it for leaks and add some ballast if necessary. Then glue the forward deck, the quater deck and Flight deck: then I can add the fairleads to the upper deck.

    I am not sure if I have connected the motors correctly until I go to park. I am awaiting some final fittings from SIMAR (Sea King Helicopter, roller fairleads) then all will be completed.

    I decided to build from scratch HMS Blake, I used the Jecobin Plan for HMS Tiger 1/96 scale. This was the first ship I served on in the Royal Navy 1976 to 1979. The hull is supplied by Scalewarships.com, the fittings, Scalewarships.com, John Haynes Fittings and SIMAR; the running gear from GT Sitek.

    The build is nearing completion and now requires the guardrails and the decks fixing in place.

    Changed the wiring motors working although the starboard inner runs slow and is noisy, may have a bent shaft. Small problem the rudder servo is not working. I have connected this to channel 2 changed leads still not working
    Will try changing the channels on the receiver.

    Just completing the build of HMS Blake 1/96 scale. Need some advice on wiring the four into the system. My set up is four MFA360 motors, one P102 Action Electronics, 2 x 20amp speed controllers, P103 parrell board for two batteries and two 12v 3700May MiNH Batteries.

    I have wired my type 23 for two motors,however I am struggling with four.
