Having a solid base for your hull to sit on during construction is important, which tends me to ask the question:

How did you make your stand?
What materials did you use?
Is it used to transport the model to the lake?

I realize there many ways this can be accomplished. I personally, have used PVC pipe for my other projects.
Building the Mister Darby, which when completed will weigh in around 60 lbs., I think I will incorporate this stand into a pull wagon from my son’s younger days. This way, getting her to the shore will not be too much trouble.
How about you?

Just some thoughts…..

It seems to me that when you start a project like the Mister Darby or any other model, you really need to plan where all of the electrical and mechanical devices will be mounted in the hull. Everyone has their own ways of finishing a ship and that might require the modeler to go beyond the printed instructions and make alterations to fit their needs. For me, looking at the plans that came with the Darby, they really don't give you a good layout for items such as the main battery. This is where the experience of the modeler comes in. This might require modifying the deck openings, whether making them larger for better access or adding one for things like a bow thruster. Saying this, I believe that you need to obtain most of these items before construction begins. You may have to alter the construction to fit your desired results. Taking your time and proper planning will result in a model you can be proud to show off at the lake. cool.gif

Ran across this a few months ago. Looks like it might work for adding your custom sounds to any compact flash card. not a direct fit, but with some ingenuity and a few switches, this might turn out to be a winner:P
