Speedline Tamar Lester 1/12

now I'm a proud owner of the kit in 1/12 ..
au man is the big .. lol ..
I'm really looking forward to building that .. !!!!!!!!

It will still take some time until I am in the cellar of the new apartment electricity and light but until then I am diligently gathering information and worrying about how I can later realize my wishes in the reality .. it should then in my model like that much like me is possible to move and work as well as the big model ..

as soon as it starts I will share my progress with you here ..

I hope that it works with the pictures ..

Hoi Mick ..

I was only surprised by the size .. Although I have used a ruler when ordering .. but he does not show the true dimensions .. lol ..

but now I'm happy about it ..

my first work will be the grinding of the hull .. from the bow tip extends over the keel to the heel seams .. below the tailgate are also seams and at the transition from the hull to the deck are almost all around smaller dents and corners ..

they have to get away so that the hull is perfect too ..

the actual work with the keels begins ..

drive search ..

by Adrian and some others, the emax 4030 is recommended .. but after intense search, I find him not .. he will probably no longer manufactured ..
by a note from Taranis I came across the Turnigy Aerodrive SK3 - 4250-410KV ..

and that will probably be my drive setup ..

I recommend you buy a programming card as well .....  https://hobbyking.com/de_de/hobbyking-boat-esc-programming-card.html
My Tamar never needed higher than 25 amp fuses with similar motors.
Many are using the same motors with the Speedline Shannon and have found the Turnigy ESCs to be a better product.... 

https://hobbyking.com/de_de/catalogsearch/result/?cat=&q=+9261000054-0 ( 50 amp )  or https://hobbyking.com/de_de/catalogsearch/result/?cat=&q=9261000056-0  ( 90 amp )

plus the card to match...  https://hobbyking.com/de_de/catalogsearch/result/?cat=&q=9261000059-0

I agree with Alan and I use the 50amp Turnigy marine ESC too. Despite numerous thrashings they won't take out a 25 amp fuse  :-))  I no longer fit fuses and rely on the ESC to protect itself.


They are on the lower equipment shelf with servos and pumps.


A different boat yes and we use 1185kv 35-42 which may not be suitable for the Tamar so I would stick to the tried and tested.






An out of date picture without upper shelf and fuses now scrapped
