    I've been feeling somewhat better these last two days, and so as our womenfolk often mention, a spot of retail therapy was called for.

    New Trumpeter Kilo kit located and bought.
    New and unused Futaba T7CP computer radio bought from Paul Holman.
    Two new HobbyKing micro servos bought.
    Tube for wtc located and bought.

    New Mabuchi 380 motor located in my cupboard.
    New 6volt 3700a/h nimhs pack located in my cupboard.
    Material for equipment tray located in my cupboard.
    Prop shaft, couplings and stuffing box located...yep, in my cupboard.
    Koge mini air pump and solenoid located...not in my cupboard, but in a box in my bookshelf.

    Still to buy...esc and a scale prop.

    Our beloved Chairman Nigel has volunteered to make the end caps for the wtc and get it all sorted for me and adopted daughter's partner has been volunteered to spray the boat when it's done.

    And so...let the games begin.

    Well, that's not bad...new sub kit ordered yesterday afternoon from an eBay seller...arrived this morning at 0940hrs.

    Thank you to TPR Models for the rapid posting...and big thanks to the Post Office for the ultra rapid delivery.
