Hi guys you may be wondering why I have not posted any updates on this build and the Missouri plus the Whitehall. I have been laid up with a bad infection which has knocked me for six. Normal service will resume hopefully next week.

Update on this build. It is a very typical moulding from who knows when. It fits were it fits and misses were it misses I have had to fit timber braces into  the hull to bring it back in line and I have joined the main deck sections together making a one piece main deck. Timber braces have been fitted to take out the bounce of the deck sections. The decks will be held in place using magnets.

Will the magnets give a good seal and will you be using a rubber gasket at hull to deck seam?  Nice work sir.  Cheers... Dennis

HI Dennis yes the magnets will pull down the deck into the hull. I terms of sealing the deck I will not be fitting any seal. Built this model many years ago when the decks were screwed down and it took very little water. After all these are static models and were never made for R C operation. Hope this helps.

Hi all update on the build. Gell cell battery confined to the redundant shelf not enough power to the motors. Mixer also removed going back to tank steering power to be supplied from a 7.4 volt lipo. Magnets removed from second deck section due to poor fit. This section will now be glued in place more to follow.

Sunday morning a cold wind blowing down the lake  not ideal for a plastic model. After removing the mixer and the gel cell battery  and fitting a 7.4 volt lipo performance was much better. I have fitted the old radio that was used on the first build way back in 1992 and I intend to use the old Electronize controllers that came in kit form many years ago. Just one picture from this morning sorry about the glare on the picture.

just a few pictures from today. I have decided to fit the original 40 FM radio that was fitted in my first build of this model. The radio system was supplied in kit form when the T/X and R/X  had been constructed it was sent back to Micron for calibration. Even now it works a treat. I know you will all be thinking what ugly looking thing but after all these years it is still doing its job. You may also see a battery change gone over to a lipo cell  much better than the gel cell.

Hi Stan


Good thread and real nice build, appreciated the advice from you on my tug build which I'm still awaiting the power board to be looked at as just sent it back to Action., soon be on the water Also have a Revell corvette 1:72 I;m on with as well just got all bracing in place and electric layout. sorted, built a static one years ago which I'm just transferring all the superstructure over to a new hull I built and refurbishing.
Anyways been looking at a big ship and the trumpeter models and converting to RC, seeing your already on with one will hopefully be able to pick your brains on the running gear and how to set up 4 props. Seen a few as in bismark and Hood but come across the USS hornet aircraft carrier and all around 4foot long must be impressive on the water. Good to see a thread on these conversions and hopefully will have a model sorted next month.


Cheers Steve

Hi Stan great thread.  I have a slightly newer Micron set, mine came with the RF cct already calibrated, I enjoyed building the set as well, not used it for a while but I also run a Futaba Tx on 27 Mhtz FM and I favour the Micron rx's every time.  I changed my rx's over to modern connectors a while ago.  I have a few 27Mhtz FM crystals, do you have a source?
best regards,
 Roy

With the fishing boat 99.99% complete I have started work again on this model  but already I have hit problems. The build book states the plastic is ABS. I have tried solvent glues with no effect so I am now using superglue and UHU Acrylit for construction. The mouldings must be all  types of plastic the funnel glued with solvent weld no problem. Pictures to follow or it may end up in the bin.

Hi Stan
Is this a trumpeter kit, have been looking to purchase one to convert as seen deans marine do a hood model, would you not recommend if that is the case, looks like you have all the hard work done installing the RC kit as well.
