Hippo, Are you wanting to add more pic's to an existing post,?? You do that in edit mode but you also must use the "advanced" setting button to do so. If you just want to add pic's to a post you are replying to in your own thread simply scroll down your current reply and add them the same way you did the first ones here before you submit it, other wise then you can do it by the method I just tried to explain in edit "Go Advanced" mode. If this helps , If not PM me n I'll get you my ph # n talk you through it together next time you want to add some pic's.! Tim aka Cap'n Hax P.S> just remember too there is a size limit here on each post. If you have a lot of pic's sometimes you have to add them by making back to back posts so they will follow as a series.

Hi Jeno, it will take a long time before I will be able to do a video. For now, you can see the real thing here

Fabrication of cabins and bridge

This is the 3rd attempt with the red colour. Tamiya X-7 red was too dark. The one in the picture is from Michaels. It would be nice if all the paints had a RGB reference numbers instead of the fancy names - e.g. True red.

Looking great. I like the videos as well. Nice looking crew, the ship is not bad either.

Making a flag 10x20 mm

I have tried a permanent red marker, but it was bleeding through the threads too much. WHat seemed to work fairly well was acrylic through a packing tape stencil.

Stuffing Box

I have done the "stuffing boxes" as shown in the attached picture. I was reading yesterday about some folks running brass shaft in a brass sleeve. I would not recommend the brass-brass combination, it is better to run two dissimilar metals. There is fairly good selection of good quality bushings for RC cars, one just have to find a suitable K&S brass tube diameter.
