Hi Vosper, you are getting on well with your build,
 but is there enough room to get your torpedo,s down the side of the wheelhouse?
the deck seems very narrow on the picture.

hi
maybe not enough room it is all guess work, i can not find any diemensions of torpedo's to help work out size, was just going to put empty racks and extra fuel tanks on plus the guns.

There is no gap between the torpedos/racks and the superstructure on the Brave, more or less butt up....

If you need a copy of the plans in 1/24 scale i have a set i can copy and send..

hi
thanks
well i only have an 8.4v battery for it so i don't think it will fast, trying to save for 12v battery then hopfully it should go better then, not been on open water yet.
the motors were very cheap so not sure how good they will be they were .99p each.
