    How odd,that's exactly what happened to me, and I can't change it either. I'm waiting now for the 'fish man' to say we've pinched his pic.

    Thanks Doug, however, I didn't put the picture in, as I don't know the person in the picture, that's the strange part, I've never seen the picture before.
    I've tried to change the picture in my account where it says 'change' but the picture I select to change it with fails to alter the existing one. Don't know what to do to get rid of the existing photo?

    I have just posted an inquiry regarding a Tornado ESC, and notice that
    a photo of someone holding a fish has appeared, I've tried to change it but the odd pic stays there. How do I get rid of it please??

    I have been given a new Tornado 50 amp Marine ESC and although it says on it for use with nicad or NIMH batteries, I'm told that it can be used with a 2s lipo. Is this correct, as I prefer to be safe than sorry?
    Thanks in advanceπŸ™„

    I now know that other than the navigation lights, that stern and mast lights would be white, however, this particular model has 2 vertical sliding mast lights on the port side, can I assume that these are white also? I can find no reference to these on the internet, and why were they sliding? I look forward to replies, thanks, Ross

    I am refurbishing a Mountfleet C642 Admiralty Coaster, circa 1946.
    Could someone tell me what colour the mast and stern lights would be please, I don't want to get them wrong and I can't find a picture that shows the models lights other than port and starboard of course.
    Thank you in anticipation.

    I have recently bought a used Mountfleet C642 admiralty coaster, and I want to add 1/32nd figures. As the ship was launched in 1946, would it have had naval or civilian crew?
    Thanks in advance.

    I'm hoping someone may be able to tell me why it is that on the Mtronics website, the only ESC suitable for a lipo battery is the 'TIO', yet two friends of mine are curently running lipo's with normal 25 and 40 amp Mtronics ESC's with no problems. My question therefor is....Can I or can I not run lipo's with these ESC's. I await any replies with interest. Thanks in advance

    I have recently bought an old Model Slipway, 1/20th Vosper Kawkab class patrol boat, and I've been trying to find suitable figures to fit without success, I assume they should be approx 80-90mm. Any ideas please?
    Thanks in advance.

    I have a rather nice Pro Boat 44" USS Arleigh Burke destroyer.It has the accessories that could be bought separately and comes complete with a new 50amp ESC. A 7.2 NIMH battery will be included, so all you will need is a receiver and away you go. These are becoming quite rare now as they are no longer produced. Its had little use, and sails superbly. I'm open to offers as it has to go due to space required.
    Collection only from Stroud in Gloucestershire, 4 miles from Jnc 13 of the M5. May be able to meet within 50 miles. Feel free to call me on 01453752333
