Hello all, my father in law bougth me an excellant little project over christmas but i need help with some things,
Ive been given the elco 80 torpedo pt 596 model from italeri (1:35 scale) but have absolutely no idea what i need with regards to r/c conversion, building and painting etc is no problem but creating a shopping list of parts is proving tricky
im wanting to keep 3 props and 3 rudders to keep it looking original!
other than that im unsure, i have checked websites etc and you can see some lovely versions of this model but none of them say what r/c you need
any help would be grately appreciated!!
cheers guys

Hi Daniel,
I suggest you give SHG a call. I belive they do a complete conversion set i.e. props, shafts, rudders etc.

Make your own contribution to the Website

We welcome well written contributions from Website members on almost any aspect of Model Boating with a particular emphasis on practical hints, tips, experience and builds.

In order to maintain a consistent standard and format, all suggestions should first be sent to me by Personal Message for approval in principle. Only a very limited amount of time is available for editing contributions into a suitable format for placing on the website so it is important that the material is well presented, lucid and free from obvious spelling errors. I think it goes without saying that contributions should be illustrated by appropriate photos. I shall be happy to give advice on this.

The Member Contribution area offers space for short informative mini articles which would not normally find a place in Model Boats magazine. It is an opportunity for Website Members to freely share their  expertise and experience but I am afraid that virtue is its own reward as there is no budget to offer more material recompense!

I look forward to receiving your suggestions.

Colin Bishop - Website Editor
