sea trials not good the motors move it but far to slow had to do sum modifications motors now she still has 4 but the 2 outside ones are 280tis from Grupner so if sum of you out there are going my way i an sorry but I did say it was an experiment The reason there is no vid was the whether not there long enough to get sum. Now for the modifications as I stated the 2 outer motors are now 280tis to get them in I had to cut sum of the supports on the port and starboard you can see this in the photos because this may weaken the hull put extra supports in to the side Putting the new motors in the problem was to connect them to the shafts this was done with sum tubing made for the job you can get it and the motors from http://www.alwayshobbies.com [/url] Putting the new motors in the problem was to connect them to the shafts this was done with sum tubing made for the job you can get it and the motors from http://www.alwayshobbies.com The weather was bad snow and windy not a good combo for filming but now the mod’s are dun will try again. Once more sorry to if you have dun it with the small motors the conversion is not hard to do as the 280tis will fit with out having to move the shafts but it must be the 2 outside motors

BigGrin Hi Jinx thanks for photos coming along very nicely

Cool put motors on hold until i can get rough idea of weight of model
local model shop man can do a calculation for motor & gear ratio (like trying to start driving off in a car in 5th gear if wrong ones used)based on weight/size etc of model

Hello back again with a bit more of my build first a lot of the first time builders will be looking at the cable drums and scratching of the head so this is my way ( Other ways are available ) first to clean the flat inside get a peace of wet and dry around 4” by 4” and stick it to a flat board This will give you a good flat surface you can smooth and clean the inside of the drum ends lay the end flat side down and with your finger slid it back and forwards 3 or 4 times on more as you could round of the ends. The drums a good set of tweezers and the file supplied in issue 1 my tweezers are a locking type pick up the drum and hold firm on a flat surface and gently flatten the ends with file Now for the putting them together, for this you need to make a gig 2 scrap bits of wood as long as they can be put together to form a right angle on dubbed sided sticky backed plastic Stand one end in to the gig stick the drum free hand to a side plate with S/Glue when dry fix to side in gig this should give you a cable drum that will sit flat on the deck. Still fiddly but better than trying to do them free but get a good set of tweezes and the job will be a lot essayer a few shots of build so far the guns on deck ar not fixt yet riging probely teching my grand mum to suck eggs but when doing the rigging do it aganst aligth back ground the tweezers cum in handy again for thisas well not uesed the coard sent but ten pound fishing line black
