    Recommending a motor and propeller for LV-112 (Nantucket Lightship) 1:96

    Earlier today, I finally got the chance to install the propeller shaft stuffing box in my 1:96 scale model(s) of LV-112 (,the USS Kearsarge, and the SS Phoenix) and plan to install the rudder stuffing box next weekend.

    Iā€™m rather concerned about managing the weight on this model and was wondering if any of you could suggest an engine for this model that would be light, and able to move this ship at scale speeds.

    Also, the propeller that comes with this kit is not hydrodynamic, as it has no discernable pitch, and I was wondering if any of you could recommend a replacement propeller. The propeller is a four blader, measuring an inch in diameter, that is intended to impart power more than speed.

    Thank you in advance.
