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!!

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

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.
