That is a good practice even when sailing in smaller lakes.

Hi all;
The report for today is many depth charges and some are loaded in the projectors built as per the kit instructions as usual.
The depth charges are very simple and tiny to see,but it took comparatively much time to complete beyond my previous imagination. {-) %%
With this work,I have come up to the page 38 of the kit instructions.
1/2/3;Depth charges set on the both sides as per the instructions.
4/5/6;Overall impressions up to page 38


My winter project appears to be likely over by late March completely if the work should go on as it is...♬~♩~(^^♪
From April is the very sailing season for my RC boats and ships now in fundamentally sleeping...?? {-) {-)

What you need to do is pick a rough weather day and take your corvette out for a REAL North Atlantic adventure! Those days were the most fun for me when I was still running my corvette. Don't forget to film it though I for one would enjoy seeing it as well. Your lake is a very nice sailing location.

With the life rafts in place - how do you access the engine room space, assuming this section is removable for getting to the rudder and other items etc?

Hi warspite;
You put a natural and good question on the point.!
Yes,hull side of the supports of the racks are not fixed,just snap-in to the hull side.

Nicely done. The life raft platforms are one of the harder items when building for RC. Getting closer and closer to launch day!

Yes,I am going to the terminal stage as for the assembly of the plastic model ship,though I am scheduled to review the whole
RC system after the plastic model assembly should be  fundamentally complete.
By the way,works for today are minimum and tiny add-on works to the life cutters.
As you see in the pics below, the kit furnished parts are soooo simple and humble to set on the deck that I couldn't help add keels, stringers,etc to the inside of the cutters to have them looked more realistic than the kit designed ones at least.
1;Tooo simple and humble to use as it is at least even for me.. <:( {:-{
2;I remade like this..
3;Cutters as per the kit instruction basis and modified ones.
4;Both cutters were modified.
5/6;Complete after painting.

Nice work Kiyo


I was unhappy with the simplicity of my boats years ago also but just covered the tops with "canvas" as I felt that would have been the way they would have been carried much of the time anyway.

Hi number-1;
Thanks a lot for your comment on my remade life boats.!


Hi Lou;
As a whole,it is rather easy to assemble the plastic model ships than other styles of making model ships using other materials and experienced skills. Therefore,it is not so interesting for me not to remake and refit some humble parts which should find to be modified to get them looked more realistic....

Hi all;
I added the rudders and helms to the lifeboats today,though I have been building this Snowberry as a working model.
In this sense,I feel there is no need to detail the boats up with such small parts ,but I couldn't help modifying this
humble boat furnished in the kit. :(( >>:-( {-) O0
1/2;Added furthermore tiny parts to the boats
3/4;Painted them
5;Kit parts..  terrible!! <:( >>:-(

Hi all;
I have finished the lifeboats up with the appearance in the pics below,as this is just a working plastic model, not a static model.! %) O0
Other details will possibly done some time in the future if I should think it necessary to do so for a RC working model. O0
1;Materials to add a final detailing
2;Rope latches are attached around the hull.
3;and painted roughly.
4/5/6/7/8;Final profiles attache with ropes.
9;Even I don't accept this poor boat..perhaps the worst parts as well as 40mm pompom gun in this kit.!! >>:-( {-) %% :-))

Very nice Kiyo


As a reminder, you may note the six "cans" that sit in the two baskets on the rails sitting upright. These are not depth charges as indicated in the plans they are smoke canisters and would not normally actually look like or have the same color as the charges.
