2.13 amps in the water at 7.2v. That is causing me to rethink a few things. It is fitted with a 6V 10 Amp Gel battery at the moment, but I could easily get a 2 hour run, and a bit more speed from a 7.2V 5300mAh NiMh...we shall see.


Anyway, final little gift today....RE380 motor under a Tufnol deck, I will let you work that one out for now!

Work has continued apace, just photos have been a bit lacking.
Railings and signal lamps now fitted to the charthouse deck. Much respect to stanchion installers the world over, I got into a right sweary mess with these! However, once painted, most of the sins are obscured..
Funnel is now fitted as are some of the deck details. Primer has revealed one or two areas which will need a little fettling with filler, but nothing serious. My crooked port fwd gun tub is now levelled up. I try not to worry how easily I was able to remove it though.. Brass mast also now assembled, with the crowsnest fashioned from a bit of 22mm copper pipe.
And the rear motor device..not working yet..curses.

That is a huge amount of work you have been doing there UBN! I recall when you were hacking stuff off to rebuild it.


Looking great  :-))

Never one to rush a project :}
Rebuilt the tanker for this season as well, it's a wonder anything gets finished really!
Anyway, Snowflake had a day out last weekend at Bucklers Hard as part of the D-Day 75 events. Much Blutac was in use for this outing!! Also in attendance, U-37, lurking up the Beaulieu River...must put a new pump in it and get it back under the water %)
