Playmobil 3551 RC conversion

I have started the installation of the motor, shaft and rudder. Everything it attached with wood sticks and glued with epoxy glue. I also turned a small aluminium oil tank for shaft lubrication. The propeller is made of brass from Raboesh p/n: 147-10, 30mm diameter but it can also take a max of 35mm propeller. I made the prop look old using ''Blacken-it'' and ''Patina-it'', those are chemicals specially made for metal/brass weathering. The hull color is Humbrol Crimson No. 20 spray can.
