Some pictures from the lake on the Fluela pass in Switzerland. Wonderful place to let the CM into the water and enyoy a few hours of her on this wonderful lake.

Thanks a lot. I am very proud and I am very happy to have taken the time to drive 2h to this wonderful lake. I've never done such nice pics of a lake. Sometimes it sparkled like it was covered with diamonds. ok2

Changed the motors again ... back to the 12V ones .... the 7.2V ones didn't match the new props very well.

Careful you don't get carried away ! There is a point when the attempt at looking like reality might go too far and -10 deg C could well be it !  O0 :D

The CM got rammed by a tug on the lake ... the event was in the swiss mountains. Lake Dosso in San Bernadino.

No damage ....  :-)) :-)) :-)) :-))
I've built the CM to the highest security standards in the model world .... planking is 4mm + 2mm plywood .... I should try out if an iceberg can do some damage ....  {-)

So glad to hear that Danielle, on that second shot when the CM was heeled over I had visions of taking on water via the hatches. I trust you had some choice Alaskan Fishermen's words for the driver of the tug !

Ps I've tried pushing the white stuff around full size in the Baltic and I would leave the idea of doing it with the C M to the imagination !

But still a nice picture Dougal99
