Mine are the first issue
The trim tabs have been revised after my intervention and are being posted to me in time for end of my holiday. This is covered in the thread for the jet drives in R&D section

Also the later motor mount has four fixing points and is connected to the base intake housing
This does not concern me that I have the first issue as I already saw the weaknesses and have thought out my own way to achieve a solid installation
This will of course be shared in the R&D thread  :-))

As per previous page regarding sticking the deck on.
This is the product I will use






Tomorrow we will leave Grantown on Spey for Edinburgh Caravan site and hope I will establish where HMS Prince of Wales is now anchored. I believe she went through the sea gate yesterday out of Rosyth dock.

This is more build related so posting in this thread.I've now completed the battery tray all from 6mm Paxolin. The batteries pictured previously are discontinued but these are exactly the same spec and still from Turnigy so I've ordered 2 to make up the four

Ordered a pair of these also

Hi Andy

Are you running the batteries in parallel. Two each ESC?

This is my method for bow channel


4 layers of masking tape to create an edge
Fusion adhesive built up in layers (extremely hard to shape once hard) so don't overdo it.


The brass channel is deeper than I intended but I'll sand it back with ropes in place. It's is temporarily fixed with 1.4mm screws tapped into the GRP





An unusual shot while in progress. Still waiting for trim tabs but the radio is all set up ready  :-))

Very effective method and won't chip like the resin of the other model when hitting debris in the water.

I've found a bit of an issue with the hull towards the bow. The chine below the deck line should follow the bottom edge of the fender. The fender becomes less in depth for the last 300mm towards the bow but the chine remains constant. I feel this will cause me problems in the end when fitting the yellow and red lines so I'd rather reshape it now before any paintwork.





There is enough material to do this but I will add to the inside skin


More progress on bow channel and Stem head

I don't know anything about lifeboats - so what does the cable on the bow do on the full size version?
