Is a whim cheaper than a credit card?

Would gladly help where I can Howard  O0
 
When we built ours, we used 0.7mm thick liteply to skin the hull and decks and styrene sheet for the superstructure, but all the internal ribs and structure is the original card. To allow the ship to take the weight of the lead ballast (removable) there is a plate of 0.7mm liteply sitting on the top of the 'double bottom' structure and to give it strength in the longitudinal axis (fore and aft) two ali box sections were glassed to it. This prevents the ship from bending fore and aft. The motor is a 'Jubilee' 7 pole from Model Motors Direct and is beautifully smooth and slow.
 
Any questions Howard, I will gladly try to answer them.
All the best,
Carl

Howard - you will need the patience of a Saint when you build it O0 .
Be warned: the parts are entirely hand drawn (no CAD) and so will be slightly 'off'. My advice: study the parts very closely (here I am thinking of all the double-bottom frames) and choose one as a 'standard' (for overall width and height) and cut all the others to match.
 
Lay in a bulk supply of X-Acto blades - the manilla card is very unforgiving and will blunt them very quickly.
 
As for glue - we found the Loctite All Purpose variety to be best - again you will need a bulk order of around 35 tubes!!!
 
Looking forward to your setting up a build log for this one - that way we wont clutter up Martin's thread!!!  %%
 
All the best,
Carl
