Sorry if this has Hijacked your thread but still a lightship.. If any member wants to try building a card or paper one best of luck and here is the link. http://www.shipmodell.com/index_files/0PLAN7.html Three across and 8 down. Lightship
Wet and dry sandpaper and lots of washing up liquid go down through the grades of paper til 320 grit The word thing you can do it try to send it all back Better to send and get a good base to start again with spray paint
The esc stuff is all working now. So i have just hooked up a LM2577 Voltage Booster input 3.5 - 30V, output up to 30V adjustable The idea is to have 24 volts battery input and the output stays at 12 volts. Having just said that it has come from action electronics and does not work .....Again. So I will have to stick with 12 volts .... so far as electronize esc,s go there heavy duty and also used so I have been told on the robots used in robot wars..
I have now just arrived two FR15 Series Microprocessor Speed Controllers. with BEC ? So I had in the past had a mixer and distribution board . But now decided just to omit the bow thruster and only wire in TWO motors.. @ 12 volts each.. So with 2 x 12 volt motors 1 x 12 volt lead sealed battery. 2 x esc,s 1 x reciver And a single rudder servo. and two y joiners for the servo. and the paperwork that came with the esc,s Being totally thick is there a drawing somewhere I can download So as to wire this in ? Also each esc has wires for a bec ? No idea where they go
What size are the motor mounting screws ? to fit the 850 to the motor bracket. I have not got mine yet so have nothing to try the hole sizes with yet.. In fact I don,t have any engine mounts yet thought I may be able to make some

Well I have yet another old hull in the shed I have decided I will have to do something with. So Thinking maybe some sort of cargo ship. Or what ever it finally turns out to be... This time with all the superstructure at the stern.. The hull is an English type So could get away with the hull of a cargo ship anyway. So started the superstructure again using free plastic . and this is as Far as I have got to date.
