Really, really, REALLY good, I liked picture 7, really menacing , did I say it was really good.  :embarrassed:
If I get chance I will photo the carrier I built for mine, need to build another for a larger vessel, but to be used for storage purposes. There are tool trays that are large enough to carry all the bits to the waterside but a bit impracticle for storing the boat though.

Thnx mate! If you look close you can see that the mast and the roof are "elsewhere" :embarrassed:  In the middle of the pond in fact.. Hmm.. that Stanley tool carrying tray look just perfect for my tiny wessels! Iīll keep my eyes wide open next time in the hardware store.

Took some proper pictures of the carrier after remembering where it was, the oldest bedroom atop of the built wardrobe.
the photos are of front - rear - right side - left side (note very little clearance) - top, insides of the boat (just to answer the previous request for what running gear, it's like a snail on prozac) and finally in it's role as a place to sit without damaging the prop and rudder. hope it helps.

Wow! Thatīs a really snug fit! Iīll construct something similar before next season. I like your version of the deck as well. My version with only the middle part liftable is somewhat narrow.. Seems like your schnellboot will outpower mine. How big is that engine? Have you experienced that leaning inwards at full speed? ( I mean the boat of course, not that leaning way of walking that we tend to walk now and then, especially on saturdays..) :}

as said earlier, the scratches when repaired give her the weathered look  {-)
 
close yes - needed yes - have you seen the potholes around here - no  {-)
 
the motors big, but as the amount of weight and power required is greater - she moves very slowly - mind you not tried here out for a while, looking for a suitable water to try her on again, originally fitted with a small motor and a centreboard / weight, that was replace  in the last refit, need to look at an alternative power plant. {:-{

Been too busy with double jobs,and moving to a new house. Anyway this is nearly completed, but every single time I run it, it brokes. It still is a great deal of fun for little money, so a couple of damaged details dosenīt bug me that much.. ok2

its still better looking than mine - and at least it is being run, mines languishing in the cupboard until I find time to start looking at refitting some vessels.  :((

Right now I'm really up for the 1/35 Italeri S-boot. Maybe I can get my local dealer to give me discount. And he can have it on display when I'm not runnin' it... Saw one member who used soidiets instead of the regular crew. Looked amazingly good!

Happy days! Winter is coming and itīs time for a build or two. Stashed up in the working table are a half-completed Robbe S130 with an unsolved fordeck issue. (Nightmare), Revells 1:72 sub planned to be a surface RC model, (Nice) and I couldnīt resist an offer on Italeris 1:35 Schnellboot for approx 95 Euros ( Nicer!). Iīll think that the last one is the first one in my shipyard lineup. The gameplan is a battleworn late-war S-boot with lot of airbrushing  and a crew in relaxed poses. Planning on a full RC with three engines and full rudder function, I really like the way you can turn them with only machine power. Iīve done that manoveour on real size wessels with landing crafts in the Marines. ( Combat Boat 90H) Hmm... maybe one should consider a 90H? Nope; first things first- schnellboot it is! Have noticed that a small company named SHG models have a complete running gear for Italeris S-boot, anyone who have dealt with that kit?

I recall seeing a Submarine support vessel based on an S Boote that had a 'Kugelblitz' turret on the stern. How many were built I do not know, but it looks like a cool conversion to an S boote.

I have recentle build the AirFix E-boat to and convert it to RC. I'm using two Graupner Speed engines on 4 AA Nicd batteries.

See for the building report photos:

Last Year we have build Revell's S-100 and convert it also to RC.

Looking good! Really like 1/72s, they're much easier to handle and transport. What kind of Graupners did you use? I've looked at their ESC named Navy V15R, range from 6 volts. Haven't found any suitable motor yet for my next build- Revells type VIIc 1/72.

Have you checked out Norbert Bruggens Conversion kit

Wow! That's a really neat build! I think I'll contact him, I'm building mine as a surfacer, I do not trust myself enough to build a thing which is supposed to drown itself in the Gulf of Bothnia :-))

His conversion kit really is very well thought out and executed to almost perfection.
I have not got past playing with the parts yet as I need to finish the myriad other projects before I start this one

The Graupners are the Micro Speed together with 1 Robbe Rokraft 50 and 1 mini servo for the rudder.
I don't no of Graupner stil have those Micro Speed.

yes a complete system, though as far as I am aware, they still only run forward - no reverse, was thinking of getting one for another mtb, but work is getting in the way and way to many other projects to build/refit before contemplating that.

They released a forward/reverse set some time back (they posted details here at the time)  though this requires you to already have a suitable DSM2 transmitter
