Thanks again for the comments,
Gingyer why have you lost the inspiration to get on with your Clyde and how far have you got.
I made a start on the superstructure gangway lights and flight deck lights today very fiddly pictures soon.

I donít really know....
I actually have the first kit made but for some reason I start working on it and then just run out of energy on the superstructure is nearly all done. I was last painting the hull especially the quarter deck to fit the deck.


Sometimes I just think of selling it, other times I want to finish it.....

These lights are taking some time I'm about half way, each one made individually think they look ok.

Been trying to think were to put the main switch so decided to put it under the brake water as this can be removed. also have connected a volt meter so I can see how much battery life I have with out taking off the superstructure.

Excellent detail work as usual! Photoshop a sky and a bit of sea into the last photo and it would look like the real ship.

HI Stuart ive just looked right through your whole build an im very impressed with your work on this model NOW a question what R/C will you be useing ?


 as at the moment ive got a big model type 23 frigate  an i have fitted in 2.4 gig R/C a  FUTABA 6 CHA an i have been havin trouble with the model running wild as it lost siganal  an i did not think id have this prob but i have an now with other help ive found out the R/C has got its own failsafe built in on chan 3
so im gonna try this today to see if it works ok as in the instuchtions its all a bit vauge an as i like to have my throttle on channell 2 with channel 1 for rudders control as i have not got very good hand cordernation so for me its the main controlls on cha 1 an 2  but today im gonna find out if i can get a seperate failsafe unit to fit in between the R/X AN THE MOTORS  AS THATS WHAT I REALLY NEED
all best
chris

2.4GHz sets tend not to work with separate failsafe units. These units rely on the receiver completely dropping the signal to the servos when it loses the signal from the transmitter. This is normal behaviour for 27MHz and 40MHz sets but not for most 2.4GHz. If the 2.4GHz has its own failsafe built in then it will continue sending a signal to the servos, the throttle will go to the failsafe position while the remaining servos will hold their position. As far as a separate failsafe unit is concerned the receiver is still receiving a signal so will not do anything.If the failsafe is not on the channel you use as throttle you could try swapping the connections to the sticks, these tend to be plugged into the main circuit board on modern sets. So swapping the plugs for 2 and 3 will give you failsafe on your throttle.

Hi Chris glad you have got some answers to your question as I have not a clue sorry, all I am using is 2.4 7channel radio and action electronics as I had some I needed to use I have found them to be ok for me I used them in my Komet and never lost a signal but you never know.
I have not done much to the Clyde just having a rest, started to paint the figures that will be on her. just having a go on one to see how I do I will get some pictures on soon.
