thank you T888 for your help.
I would like to have the same knowledge as you about some good web sites. As you can see, i did not display chain anchor because I'm not very sure about the size of a link. Research continues

Thank you for for help T888.
I'm nearly close to to finish the mast. I've used a 0.02 mm elastic thread to represent shrouds. I'd like to represent my sandown class mine hunter in operation on french coast with another NATO boats. So, I would like to add the NATO and French courtesy pavilion in the mast. But which size? Is there any particular label (with balls and triangle) when they hunt mine ? And in a same time, I would like to order the white british royal navy flag for the back of the boat, but which size ?

Use BECC flag size calculator http://www.becc.co.uk/contents/en-uk/d50.html you then order the correct flag from Cornwall models.


She looking a good build. :-))

Hello,
Theses are my latest photos. For the moment, I try to give the best diection for electric and servo wires, but it is not so easy in a smal boat.

Hello,
After checking a part of electric wires, it's time to see if light in the front ship is working.

Thank you Hama for your coments,
I've just checked the light system at back of the model. It looks OK. So 15 LED's  light the boat as real as it could

Looking really sharp & clear, and whilst it's of no consequence now, you appear to be getting bleed thru of the navigation light [possibility light colour plastic?] to areas 22.5 degrees more than aft of the lights axis....which is a no-no


For the future, you may want to check the Rules, but is a bulkhead wall mounted downward facing flood light [facing @ 90 degrees to FWD] allowed to be illunimated if so close to a navigation light?

Looking very nice.


If you are still wondering, the day shape for minesweeping ops is 3 black balls in a triangle = 3 green lights in a triangle at night (If memory serves me correctly)

Thank you for your help,
A small shop not so far away from my house, made my letters and insign for 4£50, which is not so expensive.
After putting the boat vinyl  letters, I've added few varnish edges with an air spray.
