Hi, Ken,
Thanks for the help, yes I'm using an iPad . But all the past posting have been made using the same iPad.
As we don't own a normal computer , it looks as I may not be posting any picture.



Any I Pad  users out there that can help please

Some picture of the bridge.




My plan is to fully detail the bridge , with lights, consoles back lighted by fibre optic.


And before the question is asked, the "D" plug in front of the bridge is so the superstructure can be disconnected from the main hull wiring ( Female connector is still to be fitted).


The second picture is of the generator housing just I front of the main mast.

Hi All,
This is a picture of the controll box which has the receiver and bothe speed controllers , All the power connection are plugged in at the bow end and All the radio is at the stern. The idea of this is so can use this control box for All my models, as it can be remove in seconds , by unplugging the power and two radio plugs.
Also this mean I wire All my models the same way ,  even if it's only using one motore and a couple of the channel available .

Hi Dave looking impressive as usual, what battery are you using in yours, I'm using a 12volt 7amh sla. I had spare, I'll use a diode to drop the voltage for the bow thruster, glad you got the photo thing sorted.  :-))

Hi Joe,


The same with your build, looking good.


I'm using 6 volt 10amh, thruster on micro switches, but I may be changing the current thruster out, as I believe the Hunts have the same thruster configuration as the Batch 2 Sandown's.

The bow thruster on micro switches ? That's something I never thought of, I was going to run mine on it's own ESC. But I suppose you only need to pulse the thruster to achieve the movement, I may rethink this, cheers Dave.  :-))

Joe,


I know still, takes a channel but it saves on the cost of a ESC

Just completed the wire under the superstructure, all that need to be finished off is the fibre optics

As you say Dave they do give a very good scale light, as I've seen on your Clyde, I won't be going quite that far on Brocklesby I'll most Likely stick to nav. Lights and wheelhouse using nano chips.  :o
