Thanks for the comments Ken..........I cannot say it was a pleasure to build, until I put that last flag on her..................but it was interesting, taught me a lot about planning, and that, unlike my lifeboats where I am totally in my comfort zone, this was something that needed a lot of concentration to do...............in the end I am happy with the finished model.............and look forward to plopping her in the water................but it'll be the kids paddling pool first, as it's so b****y heavy, I have a feeling it's going to be renamed HMS Trafalgar, after the Trident class submarine affraid affraid affraid lol! lol!

I know mate.......never taken that long to finish one...........and talking of endurance.....

now, THIS really is an endurance, lol......................inflating the "test tank"......my kids paddling pool when they were 8/10 respectively and now 18/20 lol.........it takes about 2 hours to pump up and 3 hours to fill............so as I only started about 30 minutes ago........it's going to be another late night............wish I'd fitted lights to the model now.

but will test it out tomorrow, if the sunny weather holds........but sadly forecast for rain and wind........so might hold off lol...........don't like getting my boats wet.

tested this morning.......just had to swap over the leads on the rear motor as they were working in opposing directions, and have the motors running forward when I pull the stick back towards me instead of pushing forward........but minor matters.........just need to read my instructions on reversing the switches................but she has bags of ummmph.....even at half stick..........she'll be doing 40 - 50 knots on full stick lol.


since posting this earlier, I had a think about the job.........the rear motor was running in a FORWARD  movement on forward control originally whilst the bow motor was running astern............so I changed the rear motor as to how it was originally plugged in and just swapped the terminal leads on the bow motor over................it now goes forward on forward stick n vise versa.........job done.
