PT-15 deck modifications

Tamiya PT-15 Japan MTBPosted by xilsoe Nov 17, 2014 20:20:46
To make access to the battery and electronics easier I have modified the deck of the PT-15. The piece of deck that goes across under the superstructure was removed so it will be easier to access the electronics. To reduce water ingress I have put an edge around the front part of the hole in the deck so the water won't automatically enter the hull. I shot some pictures before painting the edge. I thought that would make the changes more visible in the pictures.

The deck is still not fixed in place. I would like to try out the electronics before dong that. I also need to find a way to keep the superstructure in place so I won't loose it. Loosing the superstructure would be too bad.
