    Hello Everyone

    My name is George. My interests are in 1/16 R.C Tanks / Armour, R.C scale Military ships and R.C Static diving submarines.
    Been collecting lots of kits but not actually assembling them due to recovering from two motor vehicle accidents and combined health issues afterwards.
    After seeing Richard, the Admin. here post on his X-craft I looked at mine and decided it`s time for it to be started, once it gets warmer here in Canada. Only place to work is in our garage and it`s COLD and full of dad`s car, a garage queen.

    I will MOST LIKELY be posting LOTS of questions in Richard`s build post and I appreciate ALL the help I can get.

    Thanks

    George

    Welcome George and hope you fully recover.
    Richard is a great inspiration and very generous person.
    Please posts some images of your RC models and tell us what components you will be using in your models.

    You've got r/c experience, so the likelihood of success with your X-Craft is high. Just keep this first effort simply -- concentrate on keeping the water out, and getting the sub-systems to work correctly every time!

    Stern plane, rudder, throttle, ballast. That's all you do on this first-sub. Don't worry about scale, details (the kit you got can only be described, charitably, as 'stand-off scale', anyway), and the paint job. Just make it work in the water to your satisfaction. Make it pretty later, at your leisure, during the following winter months.

    Hi George, and welcome to our little corner of the interweb thingie.

    As David said, the X craft is nothing like a scale boat, but once it's working, you can make it look a bit more scale like. I've decided I have enough scale detail on mine now...you can get carried away making a silk purse out of a pig's ear.
