ideal motor for this pup would be an MFA385 or similar 5 pole low revving motor, utilizing a 7.2v 6 cell battery.

to ballast take about 1.2kg of lead,
ESC - Mtroniks viper 15,

servo - Futaba S3003 or similar.

Hi More Coffee,

What's amateurish about that? Besides, we all were amateurs at one time, some of us still are!!
Nice looking ship.

By the way, welcome.

weathering is a fine art, you can labour for hours and come out with a fantastic result, on the other side you can labour for hours and ruin it.  keep it subtle.

Hi More Coffee,

The tires are really very old, used far to long. The entire profile is gone :o :o >>:-(
