I need to extend/connect up a couple of 2S or 3S lipos -
what wiring size do people use, or would recommend? -

I cannot for the life of me figure out the AWG system!

This is more than vandalism. The level of destruction is manic but I am sure that they are such nice boys who love their mother & their brothers & sisters who wouldn't hurt a fly and just had a mad moment caused by the stress of being 15.  <*< <*< <*< <*< .

I would start with castration to make sure the little buggers didn't reproduce.

I feel so sorry for the modellers. We all know that the insurance payout will neither compensate nor remove the very bitter taste that this causes.

I live in a "safe" village but when we have had events with "valuable" exhibits we have had a couple of people sleep in the show room. I think this might change a few thoughts on security.

That is so *****  >>:-( <*<

Just looked at the video.  The louts didn't just trash the exhibits, they piecemeal destroyed every bit.
I very much doubt if they will receive any real punishment.   <:(

I had intended to visit this show but was told by a family member that a report of vandalism had been published and that the show was cancelled.  I chose not to travel as I thought the organisers would have enough on their hands without well meaning members of the public turning up and trying to help !!   


I attach a link to an article in the local press with some photos of the damage.  Hopefully the link will work.

Sadly, I have to agree with the comments that these youths will not be punished in any meaningful way. Furthermore, the bleeding heart liberals, that run what is jokingly referred to as the Criminal Justice System, would never allow the punishments suggested in some of the posts no matter richly they are deserved.

The sad part of this type of vandalism is that no amount of punishment will undo the destruction that's been wrought. Insurance may cover some of the cost, but the hundreds, perhaps even thousands of hours invested in the models can never be given back. I can only try to imagine how I would feel if it were to happen to me, I'd be devastated and disheartened to say the least. My commiserations to those affected.

I very much the insurance will cover it. As most modlers do not value the cost of the model at full comerical rebuild.
From now on when I go to model shows were boats have to stay over night I will be using a comerical rebuild value so not longer about 1000 more like 25000.
Yes the two little 15 will not be name due to there age and get a token punshment.  This is what is wrong with both the CPS and judges and the courts

Very nice job on your build.   These old J boats are the most graceful boats on the water.

Well, it started with Samuel.......[Samuel Plimsoll (1824 1898) was an English politician and social reformer]

Of course, his work was valued for human life, however ''do gooders" jumped on the Band Wagon and now some 125 years later this is what we get...

zero respect [from a mixed age generation] for anything ....law, society, environment ...etc...etc

Alex Grover  assistant curator plans and photos at  the NMM  was more than helpful and  made sure that each plan was appropriate for my requirements . There is a builders model of Hood 1889  housed at Chatham and this  is available  for  inspection . Alas no half black  or shell expansion drawing  for  identifying the line of plates  :(( .
