Default .12 hydro

Here's a few pics of mine I put together last fall, sadly not in time to get it in the water. Very soon though!! I still have to buy the motor for it, I think I'm gonna go with the Novarossi. My buddy has one too and he was thinking of going brushless but not enough room in the hull for batteries.
