At first glance it looks like the bow on the Maltby plug  has been stoven in  :o
Second look shows its the reflection from the house  %% {-)


Looking forward to seeing your efforts bear fruit.

I will be making a pair of schottels for her once the hull is ready I did think about buying the schottels but at 550 each I changed my mind {-) I ordered two 80mm props from Simon at Protean Design today ready for the project

That certainly is a great finish on the plug Chip  :-)) ....camera angles and reflections can play tricks on our minds...


BTW, I like the low profile wide racing style tires on the Trolley er' Table..... O0

Just received the bevel gears I ordered for the shottels, starting to get the bits together ready for the build. They are not cheap at 27.50 a pair but they are very good quality.

What motors  will you be using to drive the Schottles

Jason
I haven't given the motors much thought to be honest Jason, I might have a look at the ones sold by mobile marine models

Hi Taranis, as i have said i haven't given the motors a lot of thought, after looking at the Mobile Marine Model motors, they will be to slow as i will be gearing the drives  :-))

Jason, preview your text before posting, or click "modify" immediately after posting and if the small text occurs again highlight the affected text then select a 10pt font from the drop down box marked "font size". It has happened to me, and others, several times.

Hi Jason the two schottels that i am going to make will be the same as the one in the link (hopefully LOL) These schottels look very good but unfortunately the cost is to much for me. I am keeping a check on what it costs me to build the units.
