Thank you for your help John,
 It's hard to complete  a F14 or F16 Futaba remote control, because it is nearly impossible to find a multiswitch on internet.
 So, let's back to the paint. It's finish, I will nearly order "Brittany ferries" inscription. In few day, I will follow "the sea" trial.




Hi
your paint looks great. Try Ebay.DE (Germany ) normal a fair bit on there. Use the words F14 Robbe

Hello everybody,
I found these ladders on hobby lobby modelbau website, they possess holes on each side. I bend stalks of plastics strips of 0.3 mm which I stick with cyanoacrylate. I present you photos of the front of the ship.

Hello,
I used many plasticard profiles to make the mast. In order to curve some piece, I took an hair dryer.

Hello,
Last week end, for a second time, The Mont Saint Michel sailed but in a small pool. The two bowthrusters worked together, and gave a good  manoeuvrability. I need to add more lead in the hull front. For once, Bretagne and Mont Saint Michel was on water in the same time. Now, I'm improving the lorry garage by sticking more LED'S, and changing the lorry moving. More photos are coming.

Hello


 :-))  Great job - Then she will be like a piece of the old days - the Mont Saint Michel received now a third funnel between the two originals.
