The 10 quid trawler bits from the Tip.

Postby maximus2012 » Sat Mar 22, 2014 7:13 pm

All it needs now is ballast speed controller receiver and batteries and a few bits of rigging and touch up paint. All the super/structure is removable as well. The Lifeboat is swung outboards and not covered as it would be in wartime.Time to shift it, because I don't do Radio control. So not to bad for a tenner with having the extra hull in the box witch I could shift on ebay for 37.00. :dance: With partworks dragging there feet :o I have to think about something else to do. Happy weekend to all of you. :dance:

It is on Fleabay (ebay) starting price off 59.99. Will make a profit on top of what I got for the other hull I picked up from the tip and sold on to a good home. :dance:Took it off ebay, added a few more bits to it, to lewis guns and 4 depth charge throwers. It is back on again and looking even better. :dance:

Sold it on fleabay for a bit over hundred quit, so not bad for a tenner for 2 hulls and a few bits, made a handsome profit of over 150 quid. :dance: and it kept me busy for a few weeks. :D
