One nice thing is when you find a ship under the Christmas tree. This year I found a Revell 1/72 S-100 Schnellboot with the Flak 38 At first sight it seems like a very nice kit and I naturally started looking around the web for build logs. I found a video at YouTube that seems very informative:
From the video it looks like he is using a Robbe roxxy 1820/16 brushless outrunner for motor. There is lots of other neat details on that boat so I may contact the builder when I get to do this kit.
I also found a place where better decals can be acquired: http://www.condordecals.com.ar/condordecals/cp_productos.php?pageNum_rsProductos=1&totalRows_rsProductos=30&rubroID=11&subrubroID=10
Here is a build description: http://www.ptboatworld.com/PT_Boat_Models/Schnellboot.htm
The build description points to a very good site for flags: http://www.modelflags.com/acatalog/D51_German_Naval_Ensign_1933_-_1945.html. The S-100 will definitely need a different flag as it is to be an RC model.
