I asked Deans Marine to post the pictures because I am having trouble with the size of my pictures off my iPhone.
Thank you for your encouraging words.

The ship has full RC system, Steam ship engine sounds timed with the prop. Full Navel ship sounds. The ship also has steam for the funnel.
The sound system is divided in two with separate speakers.
The ship is running on 2 large batteries. One drives the RC and one the accessories. I have installed a power converter to drop the voltage for the lights to be installed in the ship. Red for the wheel house and Running lights and lights on the super structure.  The ship has a automatic bilge pump to save the ship. The ship has been dived into water tight compartments with the water able to run under the electronics back to the
bilge.
Water tested she floats just above her fully laddened line.
When I am done I think a RC German Uboat is calling my name.  Lol
The ship will be super detailed.  I plan on not only using it for RC, but also on my train layout in the harbor. 
I plan on laying her on pexy glass and then detailing a full deep harbor
under her.
This is my first ship. I am at the one year mark, however I had to take 6 months off to move and have started in again.
As soon as I can figure out how to down load pictures I have detailed pictures of every step.

It has been a while, but I just finished all the hand rails.  What a tedious project.
I started at the beginning of summer and I just finished today.  The wire if you even look at it would bend.   I can't tell you how many times I just had to walk away and start over later.  I had to work the wire to get it so straight.  I am working of a 1942 Dodge Command car at the same time and the difference in touch is extreme to say the least. I really recommend anyone doing rails, if it isn't going good or you are just about to finish a section and the last piece screws it all up.  STOP and get away,  I had to learn it... lol
Now on to life boats and fun stuff... :smiley1:

I realized that the pictures I posted where to far away to see the detail.
Please see enclosed attachments.
I am going to have to give the structures one more final spray after I get everything else on.
Then I will go back and do the super detail  painting by hand.
Sorry for the far away pictures, I forget that you can't take your fingers and widen the picture.

I have rounded the corner on the build.
I should be done by the end of April.  I added lights to the ship.  The wheel house is in red lights and the super structure is white light and the galley and stern gun are in white light.   The lights are controlled by individual switches.  The port holes were left open to allow air to get into the hull for the smoke generator for the funnel and keep the electronics cooler.  The wheel house has been glazed however.
I went and got heavy duty sowing thread to use a cable material.  I find the thread gives a great cable look. 
Look for a second reply if my file with the pictures is to large I will send the rest in a second reply.
