Thanks for sharing the information and I enjoyed, perhaps a bit more, the conversion of the Schnellboot. I want to see how that one runs as the kit props leave a lot to be desired--the pitch on the screws is woefully too steep and un-scale but they might just do for basic propulsion. I've got one of those waiting in the wings somewhere as well. Delightful kit that I purchased to spite the fans of the larger 1/35 version by Italeri.  ok2 Why take the easy (and expensive) way out? Go 1/72!

Your 'Smasher' is done up right. That's probably the best of the RTRs as it is a near perfect representation of a Russian Sovremenny destroyer. I think it is on or about 1/200 scale or 1/144. Just needs a bit of paint to dispense with the oem toylike appearance.

Thanks Harquebus. The E Boat goes like stink. The only tricky part was the prop shafts and couplings.I will try to post a vid on YouTube.
