I see what you were describing last week Stan. Not a lot of wriggle room eh?  Looking good though.

I never realised that the props had different number of blades on them. Unless I'm being a bit thick!

Very nice Stan.......I toured BB63 when she was in Sydney for our 75th Naval Centenary in 1986. She was without a doubt the most overwhelming vessel I have ever walked upon

I understood the outboard turbines differed [ahead only?] to the inboard pair, however it appears all four are out-by rotation

What you are doing sir, to bring these fine fighting ship models to life is truly amazing... the wiring alone blows my feeble mind :o .  1/200 is a good scale to work with and Trumpeter is a good kit maker.   Keep up the great work and am anxious to see when you sail them.  Best, Dennis

The rudder connections are now finished and tested hoping for some dry weather on Sunday  to try both models out.

Model taken to our home water this morning  for first sea trials sadly not the best conditions. The weather was cold wet and lots of leaves in the water. Only on trial carried out model lacked power due to cavitation problems need to change the props also me thinks.

Sea  trials done this morning mixer removed lipo fitted much better performance. Sorry about the glare on the water.
