Scratchbuilt R/C Ship


New design

I set aside my first unstarted build and made a new one. Bigger, wider, heavier so it can handle choppy waters and catch fish of about 2kgs. Bait & hook will be loaded to a floating oil rig and pulled by this vessel.. Now i need some experts advice here about the propulsion and stability of this build.

Scale of 1/52
Design is from damen multi purpose vessel
Dimension 47 x 10 inches
Weight 15kgs

I finally learned how to export the images but having a hard time printing the plans on A3 size because the printing shop wants a pdf file so instead i ended up drawing every single frame on paper
