Hi all the RC ship captains;
Today's photos are the rear flagstaff set on a handmade chock.

2;Started making a chock to begin with.
3;Completed as shown.
4/5;The flagstaff was built on the chock as shown.
6;The white ensign was raised up.!

  flying proudly.... ;D :D

Re: HMS Fencer in mothballs released for saling

Hi all the RC ship captains;
She has beeeen put in mothballs for nearly 9 months on her bed,partly because gigantic typhoons
and partly because new corona virus. 8) >:( >:D
From this month,we are allowed to go outside,especially to be able to go far beyond the prefectural
borders.This is because I have started to prepare for sailing of HMS Fencer sleeping deeply on her bed
for 9 months.!!! Moreover,it is already entering the best season in a year for sailing a model ship/! :-[
The photos are the conditions of checking the Fencer after drawing her from the bed.
1;She has been  sleeping silently for 9 months. ;)
2;Then she was drawn on to the work desk.
3/4/5;She receives a check on the hull and flight deck briefly.

Re: HMS Fencer like an USN attack carrier

Hi all the RC ship captains;
Today's photos are HMS Fencer loaded and placed with 20 Sea fires like an USN largescale attack carrier. ;D
According to my own information on real HMS Fencer,fully loaded number of planes are 21 though I loaded
20 fighters this time,another 1 Sea fire not assembled yet. ;)
Of course,I will not load the 20 planes when actually sailing,as it will surely be troublesome to operate
her on the site.  ;)

Hi all the Rc ship captains;
I have checked her the inside of hull if she works normally as done in last September,
as she has beeeen sleeeping for such a long time on the bed proper to her,due to corona virus and typhoons. 8)
The result is OK with the simulated engine sound and smoke genaration. :grin1: :-
1;Opened the deck hatches for checking the inside
2;Both main motor and bilge pump motor worked well.
3;Rudder linkage operated normally.
4;Various ballasts ,grey ones are the basic ballasts and the rest for minor adjustment
   depending on the wave conditions and so forth.Basic ballasts are 9.6kgs
5;Inside of hull lookig to the stern direction.Right silicon tube is for a drain from the bilge pump.
6;The same as above looking to the bow direction.The ballasts are put on the platform about
   5 cms below the planned waterline.
7;Switch on and digital volt meter is diplayed as shown which is clearly seen from "the captain" at
some meters away from her when passing closely. :D
8;And switch off with everything done as expected with success. ::DD

Hi Ron;
Thank you so much for a complimentary comment on my work of HMS Fencer. :grin1:
This kit of the large hull is so awesome that a modeller could do anything on her if he should  intend
to do so depending on his ideas, passion and time.
However,the weather is out of our control,,,, :-X :-\
Surely, a model ship is largely dependent on the weather. :-\
