Hi Dan

Thank you for the nice words and I really appreciate you taking the time to post to share the extensive experience you have with these models. I am completely in the dark when it comes to the "RC" functions of these ship models but have given much thought to the level of detail I would like to try and achieve. I understand there may need to be some compromises (scale vs. functionality etc) and do intend to sail it.

The good news is that there is a lot of time to think about the set up under the deck before I get to glueing it on. Once I get closer to that point, I will explore the posts on your threads and try and decide then. I have seen them but will give them a good reading when I get to that bridge. Also need to re-look at how you set up your tiller and control of the rudder as I will not have the quarter deck on mine either. It will be an open deck. Sure does't seem to be much room under the deck at the rudder post for a control horn. More fun stuff to figure out. : )

Thanks again for any and all input. It is much needed and appreciated.

Kindest regards
Tim
