Plans arrived today

So now time to aquire the lumber and work out a plan of action, size is looking like around 9 feet long and 13.5 inches wide at the widest point.

I think i will be going for twin screws as opposed to the quaddruple on the real thing, for simplicity really


I own a computer shop and will be using dead hard drives as ballast when the time arrives!

Next project Will be HMS Renown WW2 Battlecruiser, plans are on the way and she will be the same scale as my laker which will make her just under 9' long and not sure on this yet but maybe 16" wide

scale is 1/87 which i think is also 00/HO as in the railroad scale

The wiring diagrams on this site will be extremly helpful as i try and get independant fuction of each motor
The plan is to have her ready for sea trials in late April 2010, when all the ice and snow has finally gone
Once again dead office lazer jet printers will provide motors and wiring etc
