|Hull Material:||Scratch Built using Plank
on Frame technique
( see My Hull Building Page )
|Model Length:||982 mm (approx- 39")|
|Build Time:||Still under construction|
|Progress:||Hull started December 2002|
|Propulsion:||Main Propellers (2), Bow Tunnel Thruster (1), Stern Tunnel Thruster (1), Drop Down Azimuthing Bow Thruster (1) & High Lift Rudders (2).|
|Electrics:||2 Electric main motors, Electronic speed controller's for motors & thruster's.|
Originally I had intended using Electronize speed controls, which I have always used with no problems, but due to a restriction of space, I am going to use fully Electronic speed controls which are a lot smaller.
Working Bow and Stern Tunnel Thruster's, working Bow Azimuthing Thruster.
As I am now able to produce metal items on a lathe and mill, I intend to have all three thrusters and the high lift rudders working.
