This site is  under construction but halfway ready.

It is about a model ship, the French battleship “Richelieu”, serviced at the Second World War.

I built a 1:100 scale model, fully operating.

The ship is controlled from a laptop computer. In the ship is also a computer that communicates with the laptop by a wifi connection. With this two-way communication a camera, GPS, Compass and sensors on board are available at the laptop.

Control hardware in the ship mainly based on Phidgets, On the laptop I built a control panel from which I can control the ships movements and special functions. Programming is in python.

For  suggestions and questions see the contact page.
