Hi the front axel is 1/12 crawler axal there's two prop shafts through hull one for drive to diff one for propeller .Two motors two servo one to steer wheels one for rudder front wheel arches had to be made wider so you can turn wheels .Two speed controllers  also the lights work .Hull made water tight .Top deck lifts off so you can full access goes very well not cheap to make the front axel cost 65 so you can guess what the rest cost in the process of building another cheers John V
