That is becoming a fine Tug hull Andy. Do you make many paxolin 'coins' at work?

Re boat stands, two suggestions I have read here and in Model Boats are:

1: Plasticine strip stuck onto the hull (wipe any grease from plasticine off hull before painting) then removed and used as template to draw around.

2: Flexiruler for similar results.

3: Profile gauge for similar results.

4: Using offcuts from relevant wooden frames as templates.

Ok, that's four suggestions  %) But three of them are similar  %%

Fore deck fits but not the least bit symmetrical
I guess it's not so noticeable unless you flip it the other way  :o

Those two stringers form the length of the revised access hatch otherwise servicing the motors and couplings would be impossible

Looking very nice, can I ask what material do you use to mount your electrics on?

Very handy to have a source from work  :-)) I've just bought a small quantity to start with from the link you gave, if you need any bearings at any time miniatures/thrust bearings etc... anything bearing wise I can help you with that I was a car mechanic, but for the last 12 years I'm now a bearing consultant

Sounds perfect, do you drill it and use nuts bolts? Or can you screw directly to it with a pilot hole?

Drill & tap it. I superglue 4mm SS nuts between it and circuit boards purely as a spacer. I fix with M3 SS allen screws.

I've got screws, washers and nut's & bolts coming out my ears down here, I've probably got enough to last me a lifetime I used to buy loads from my 1/8th car racing days and it's cheaper to buy in baulk but I buy most of mine from a company called seascrew in Eastbourne he's an good friend of mine that I've known for many years
