Default Billing WSP 10 WIP

I bought a Billing WSP 10 at my hobby store last week been working like crazy on it. It's my first "real" build. I've done a lot of other stuff and have a lot of building experience in general but this is my first "pretty" build. I used to be into the model warship combat but sort of fallen out of it. I'm doing my own paint theme not really making it a police boat like the original. I will be going to Rick Hobby Farm in Wisconsin in a few weeks if any of you are around there.

I added a tiny bilge pump I made into here. It's for emergencies and I guess a little of the combat warship side of me demands it in here even though 99% sure never going to use it lol.

I got a 6 channel radio on the way from "HobbyPartz.com" they are very cheap and have good reviews there. 2.4GhZ for 35$..... I plan to modify the radio and add a little wooden steering wheel and a throttle level to make it a bit more realistic, I did some google searching and could not find anything similar. Has no one else done that?

Got it finished up tonight, only drove it around twice so need to fix some cooling issues on the motors still. Already thinking of what to build next lol. It turned out looking like some form of fireboat. Not really happy with the flag but I just used one it came with. I wanted more of a generic flag not really a country one.

I made the radio box sit above the deck its not really water proof, more like splash and drip proof. The heat sinks on both of the ESC's are exposed out of the bottom of the radio box to keep them cool.
