Stern and Bow Thrusters - Scratch built

Hi everyone,

I am in the planning and research phase for my next build. It looks like I will need thruster(s) with rather small diameter pipes.

It is looking more and more like I will have to scratch build my own thrusters.

I kinow that there was a thread on this forum some time back. I was weondering if any of the expert techies out there have any ideas or successes that they might like to share.

Thanks in advance.
