« on: December 13, 2011, 02:01:57 PM »

Good Evening all of my Friends and Colleagues..Wish you all Merry Christmas and Happy New Year....this is my new fishing trawler, and i consider it as the Model of Christmas, who brings happiness and prosperity to all...all of the efforts that i took to make this model, is dedicated to all of my Friends and Colleagues, to be graced in this Christmas and New year month..God bless us all...I am thanking you all, for suggesting the name for this craft, and a million thanks for my doubts about some device used in this craft...

as usual, i started with thermocol..she spans in to 2.5 feet, and 8 inches beam extreme. she is fully equipped, even with an MP3 player.

i fixed a RS 380 motor at first but it proved disastrous..so i rewound it in to 7.2 volts specs, and keeping a tip in mind, that, torque instead of RPM, so doing well..and this motor is heavily brushed, for long time operations..it drops only about 170 mAmps, so with a simple 2200 mA/H Li Poly battery, she runs for hours..

can see the cooling tubes over motor, is a simple solution for long time run..this tube is taken from, deep freezer tubing..
