as for livery, not decided yet, though her bridge pannels will be orange.  Blackpool show, motor, new stainless shaft, 35mm prop, with a UJ.  esc - Proboat Tornado 50 servos will be by Futaba.

speaking about spray jobs, I have to paint the hull on the ship along with the main deck.

The hull Im gonna have white and red, the deck is going to be Matt green.  Adding lights should be easy as well, the hull is just a BIG void. having a front bulkhead also means that seperation of gear is also possible, so add a battery up the front and a battery back aft, along with some lead to trim.  Im planning on using 6v 4.5ah battries on her

it HAS been sugested :) and at the show Im going to look into the feasibility of it.

I think I will need a LONG servo arm, probably off a yacht, and a sail winch.  then on the skip-lift at the stern, a small servo linkage.  should be fun to do

by playing around with EPA I think I may be able to adjust the travel of the arm to a fully IN and fully OUT position, rx for that will be the one in Espirit.  the sail winch will probably be assigned to ch6, thats IF i animate it
