Hi to all!
« on: May 10, 2009, 10:15:59 PM »

Hi to all!

I'm Roberto, I write from Italy, near to Turin, I love RC model ferry ship... %%

Now I'm building my first model the M/S Athara (a big RoRo/Pax ship of Tirrenia navigation company) in 1/87 scale (2,5 meters long)... RC... with all functions of the real one... motors, rudders, bow thrusters, anchors, mooring wires, lights, stabilizers, stern ramps (reproduction of a big part of main car deck with really Roll-on and Roll-off model trucks of the famous Faller Car System). At the moment I'm drawing the various parts (keel, frames, etc.) with CAD program in order to cut them by laser (my friend has that machine at work)... It's a long work... but the results will be in high precision! :-))

the only bad thing (I think that it is for all) is the free time... I haven't so much...  <:(

I'm also a model railway lover and I play drums since 1997...

I'm an electric designer.

Best regards!

Roberto.
