Just in addition to the above... the running gear I've had from here has always been top quality products and well worth the money.
Cheers,

Nige last time had spoke to George he had not fully retired but would be doing a few parts for some of his regular customers, but it does
take longer to contact him nowadays and probably longer for the parts to be made, but they are still to the same quality.
I suggest you all order in plenty of time.

Apologies.

Did not take many pictures through the build and now she is substantially complete.

Pics herewith. I have to say the detail available from the standard kit is stunning. With the additional etched brass stuff available now she would be a show stopper but practicality for a working model will mean damage would no doubt occurr a lot !!!

Let me know what you think

Working features built in are turnable main turrets. Turnable secodary turrets. Lights in the superstructure only, none in the hull

Looks like a very nice job Nige and a lot of work well done.
what type of servos did you use for the main and secondary armament and did you doctor them for complete rotation

Used micro servos for the turrets but dont know how to modify them for full rotation so they turn to one side only. The secondary turrets are all linked to 1 servo.

Micro servos were £9.99 for 3 on EBAY
