USCGC 1313 Edisto, 110 ft Island class cutter

I want open independent build log just for this ship. All pictures will be here. This new ship-1313 Edisto, is 1:25 scale 110 ft Isand class USCG cutter. Lenght is 140 cm, it is based as always on fiberglass hull from my production. Available is fiberglass hull in 1:25, 1:35 scale.If anybody interested. I had this scale ship builded some years ago, but this was sold. So building new one, for scale competitions. Hull is epoxy fiberglass, deck and superstructure will be fiberglass too. Fittings are from poyurethane resin.

but the labels on the motors say 1100rpm/v (yes i am a smart ...) regardless, i am just happy to see someone building a really nice looking boat with a really nice looking set of brushless motors

Do not worry about this 300 rpm/V I had unpacked this motors for different ship, so I just use them as a pattern, motor with 1400 and 1100 rpm is exactly same size.But motors with 1400 rpm/V will be installed after pain will be done on the hull.
No, for now I do not any videos. I can make video from one meter size, but right now I have ice on all lakes around
