  1. Don’t know how I missed this one, but I’m pulling up a seat now. What a marvellous tutorial this will be. Such a privilege to watch a real master at work and to be able to read your explanations of both the “how” and the “why” of everything you are doing here. Thank you for sharing with us.
  2. Kevin, The brass will tarnish over time (I’m sure you remember polishing lots of it in your early Naval career!). If you don’t want to polish it now that it is in place, a coat of clear finish will prevent it from tarnishing further as it will seal it and prevent oxygen getting at it. You should be able to apply the clear coat with the brass in situ.
  3. Perhaps before leaping in with this advice, you might do me the courtesy of a little more research. Here are two examples of actual cars with wooden dash panels. Whether they were “as built” or added later by subsequent owners I have no idea. But they do exist and I chose to make such a modification to my model. It is not for you to tell me otherwise.
  4. My wife and I keep the spark alive by watching spousal murder shows together and criticising the idiots who get caught.
  5. I’m not familiar with this particular boat set-up but I imagine it would need something similar to my Dumas Chris Craft. For that, I use a 2.4GHz radio controller (which all the modern ones seem to be). I opted for a handset that is the same as that often used for RC cars - the “trigger” type. It is much easier to use with a simpler learning curve than the “two stick” types. These also have a third channel, which I used to control the lighting (navigation and cockpit lights). The other thing I did was to use LiPo batteries in the boat - lighter and greater endurance. Lou is right i
  6. Congratulations on your purchase Ron, you will not be disappointed! "Quality is remembered long after price is forgotten"
  7. With the greatest respect to everyone here, perhaps there is a more appropriate thread to discuss food and recipes? Let’s get back to sharing those great jokes instead - I always look forward to starting my day with some of those.
