Hi Jason I haven't been doing much with the models for a while, just starting to progress a bit.

Just stunning Brian! 
Love those props! 
I've got an Artic hull on my slipway which will probably be my next build, but I'm not setting up another build thread - couldn't compete %%

Pleased you like the progress Butts. Im getting back into the build slowly, I agree with what your saying about starting another build thread on the same model.

I am going to rotate the schottels using nylon cogs direct from the servo's, the photo's show the way I made the mounts.

After a lot of thought I have decided to give brushless motors a go, I don't know much about them but its the only way to find out LOL.
I have one fitted but not quite finished yet.

Not a lot done over the last couple of days, I decided to test the drives in the bath (while the good lady was shopping LOL) I was quite impressed with the way she performed, she certainly has some power. It took 14.131kg to get her to her water line plus the weight of the two schottels.

Hi all its been a while since I have done much on this build as I was not happy with the bow plus i have a few projects on the go.
At the moment I am in the process of making a plug for a Pelagic Trawler I will start a build thread on this later on. I also have a nice hull I purchased of a shelter deck trawler so I have plenty to keep me occupied.


Back to the Arctic build, as I have said I did not like the bow so decided to do a little modification LOL
