Il kit è arrivato puntuale per Natale.
Premetto che, da un primo esame ,lo scafo è in vetroresina molto ben rifinito. I materiali sono di  ottima fattura, i tagli laser perfetti e senza sbavature. Gli accessori sono in metallo,inoltre è fornito di timoneria ed astucci porta elica.
Il kit è corredato da un  manuale passo passo con immagini dei vari passaggi.

 Alla prossima col cantiere

In English: The kit arrived in time for Christmas.
I have to say that after a first check the glassfibre hull is excellent quality. The materials are very well made, the laser cuts are perfect without burrs. The accessories are made from white metal and the kit also provides the rudder and the propshaft. The kit comes with step by step instructions and pictures of the various stages of the build.
Next time will show the build

Buon giorno a tutti, ecco le prime immagini di questo cantiere.
premetto che ho studiato a lungo le due navi e sono ancora indeciso quale fare, per ora mi dedico alla motorizzazione e lo scafo.
 Ho iniziato praticando i fori per il passaggio degli astucci porta asse eliche e timone, ho solo cambiato ,provvisoriamente, le eliche.
Alla prossima

In English: Hi to all, here are the first photos of this build. I have spent a lot of time to study the history of both ships and I still do not know which one to build, so meanwhile I am working at the motors and the hull. I started drilling the holes for the propshafts and rudder and made a dry fit of the propellers.
Kind regards

Ben ritrovati,
lentamente i lavori procedono e dopo qualche difficoltà con il timone(ho allungato l'astuccio)ed il supporto del servo (ho messo un rialzo al posto delle due assicelle) ho montato la motorizzazione.
Ora devo solo riallineare il ponte.
Alla prossima

In English: Hi all, slowly the build is progressing and after some difficulties with the rudder (I have extended the rudder tube) and the servo support (I have replaced the wooden strips by uprights) I have installed the running gear.
Now I only have to realign the bridge.
Kind regards

Purtroppo il timone mi sta facendo impazzire e non riesco a trovare una soluzione,di conseguenza non posso fissare il primo ponte perché il cavetto che va dal servo al timone urta contro.Ho pensato di alzare ancora il ponte, qualcuno che ha fatto il modello mi può suggerire come fare ?
Grazie ed alla prossima

In English: Unfortunately I think I might go crazy as I do not find a proper solution to fix the rudder. As a consequence I cannot fix the deck as the servo arm would hit this. I have been thinking to put the deck higher, can please someone help me who has built this model?
Thanks and kind regards

Hi
 trim the top of the tube down it only has to be  over the waterline by 3/4mm
 the top of the rudder fits in to the small hatch over the rear so you can access the tiller if you need
pics of my one
 hope this helps
