Depending where you live don't forget about the toys that you get from the kids bubble gum machine that have small toys in those little plastic containers. One side of them would also make a great dome as well. I have also used some ping pong balls as well.

Thanks for that me3, they look good, but at 13 euro for a 15mm dia one - think I will persevere with my own.

Anyway, I found a couple of cedar mothballs just the right diameter, 2 coats of sanding sealer, chamfered the inside of a bit of plastic pipe, stuck em together, chucked a bit of filler at them, sanded and painted, and voila....

Then I moved onto the rudders, just for a change, started with a brass plate, soldered to a brass rod, cut a groove in 2 pieces of balsa and glued them to the spade, sanded a profile on the rudder and glued a bit of thin ply on the top and bottom of the rudder, and voila...

These will be covered with thin glass cloth and epoxy at some time in the future...

I have also progressed the superstructure a bit.

Took lots of time to clean up the superstructure, adding filler and sanding off.

Cut out a deck piece and fitted the control room deck in  a cutout, then had to make lots of fiddly adjustments to get the outer piece to fit on it.

If I may, another technique for producing ovoid domes.
You take an egg that you cut the mini disc drill. You resins inside, then you add any base that you paste. A few chews to join. After painting, the effect is guaranteed.
Advantage, following the animal, you have several egg sizes. It'll just go to the corner grocer provided with your Caliper to find the egg that has the proper diameter. Beware the grocer may take you for a fool ... %% {:-{

KÚnavo, Philippe!

I have been working on the driveline at the moment.

These will use 50mm MMM nozzles, and home made shafts and bushes.

Pictures show, in order, the slot for the mounting drilled ready for cutting and opening up the slots.

Next shows a wooden wedge I made to sit between the hull and mounting to align the nozzle properly, then with the mounting dry fitted in the hull.

Then we have a side and end view of the nozzle and shaft dry fitted. You will see I use a plastic disc in the nozzle to align it all.

Then we move on to the prop shaft components. The bushes are made from leaded bronze, the tube is brass.

I haven't finished the 'P' brackets yet, as I need to get the props in place to determine the angles I need to fit the bracket.

Finally we have the tube with oiling tube fitted. To do this, I silver soldered a 25mm length of tube to the prop tube, then drilled a hole in the main tube and cleaned it all out. I used a 25mm length because it allowed me to get a drill down to drill the prop tube. I then slid a longer piece of tube over the first length and soldered it in place. At this point, I used a lower temp solder so as not to melt the first soldered joint.

This tube length was cut to bring the end above the water line. Finally, I turned a small aluminium plug to push fit in the oiler tube just.

Thanks for the comments, Aydemir.

Forgive me if you already know about led's and resistors required, but, just in case, here is a useful LED circuit calculator:

Nathanbint,

Sorry, my misunderstanding, here is a link to the software you need, its free, powerful but takes quite a lot of work to get the best out of it.

http://www.delftship.net/

There is a basic tutorial here to get you started.

Today I have been fiddling with the drivelines, the pics show how I set up the shafts parallel. Everything is loose fitted at the moment while the wooden wedges between the hull and korts dry.

Today, I made two motor/shaft alignment tools. In the past I did alignment my eye and short ruler. This time I thought I would be a little more technical about it. The tool is simply a length of brass, drilled each end for a push fit on prop shaft and motor shaft.

The next job will be to glue in place the shaft tubes.
