The battery pack weighs 89 g, so once I remove the excess servo holder, I will need to create the keel for attaching the ballast to, I also need to fit the main deck and masts to work out the ballast for this and see where she sits in the water.

Due to stress at work (we have 5 days in and 3 days of where each 5 day stint can range from 45 to 51 hours, but each 'week' is just over or under 40 hours) went to LidL, spent on food and pigged out, mainly 2 apple turnovers and now they sell pretzels, so 2 of them as well, and several tins of 'sweet st' travel sweets (ooohhh they are addictive)  >>:-( <*< :embarrassed:

A unique scratch built model of the Stena Line HSS.  Built mainly of thin ply with the hulls clad in GRP.  42 " overall length.

Powered by two Graupner Speed 700 motors driving Graupner water jet drives.

Very little used but getting a little tatty through being stored in the garage and could do with a some TLC.

Probably worth the price for the motors and jet drives alone

If only North Wales was a little closer to Hampshire.  {:-{   Looks like a huge bargain for somebody.

Came across this today while looking for something else.  That looks a very impressive feat, and they have obviously learnt some lessons along the way.  Anyone here tried something similar (on a slightly smaller scale of course)?

A Scratch built model of an American long keel ketch rigged motor sailor.

GRP hull, wood superstructure and decks. Its a motor sailor so has a motor fitted. Goes well under sail or motor ( or both together).

The Pwllheli Lifeboat. Grp hull and superstructure. Good condition but had a lot of use . One motor could do with replacing as its power is down compared to the other. 38 inches long  ( Built from Metcalfe ? mouldings - memory failing !)

Yes some of us do they are great for small boats, I have a few left for more models.  They seem to last forever.  Expensive but very good.  There is a tiny 10 amp esc from Bang good at about 4.50 that suits them very well, no pause needed for reverse.
