Larger pictures of the SDM would be nice.
Maybe 800 pixels wide, or  11 inches wide.
Then we could see the details and work you put into the Salvador
Dali.

I think,... Paint the base and tops of your lamps white, then black them out.
Love the solar panels.

As for towing, SDM tugs tow beautifully.

Hi All,
The Salvador dali is 1/32 scale approximatly 30in in length with a beam of 19in (including fenders). Its fantastic at towing and can tow in any direction as well as manouver easily.
When I get a bit more practise on the TX i may be able to make it dance. Comments from club members were that they hope I would not be entering the steering competion as I would have an unfair advantage.

P.s I will post some more pictures of my loging tug build shortly.

HI Ray.
About a weeks time, just testing motors etc before I put the deck on. Also I need to stick on the fendering and a few bits & bobs ( deck clutter and it's finished.
