    Swamp Dawg Camera Boat
    Quick and simple solution to save those action moments - Pair phone or tablet with GoPro camera app, or simply record with remote via wifi.
    Model Products - Patrol Boat
    Built from a Rhodesian kit - kit produced for Model Products by a friend Mervyn Ward in Salisbury. Made from 'mugongo' a very light weight pale yellow somewhat dry dusty wood - meant as a replacement for balsa because of sanctions (looks like Jelutong but very much lighter in weight) Uses a 480 type Overland BB motor and a Graupner P30 prop with 4mm commercial propshaft. Much modified over the years - built in the 80's . Has sailed in France (Normandy,Brittany) UK (New Forest , Beale Park and a few other places)and many waters in SA. Currently under repair . Hull etc cribbed from Les Rowells Aerokits Patrol Boat but slightly different superstructure which lifts off entirely
    BC Seiner
    I was lucky enough to acquire this vessel from Weston Jenkins. It was scratch built by his father( Jim Jenkins) in Sooke in '84. Beautifully done. A real craftsman. Note all the fittings including winches etc. all electric. She has some hull damage, but nothing that cannot be repaired. I will probably be messing around with her for over a year just to slowly get her back in shape. At that point I would like to RC her. Enjoy the pics... And a special thank you to Jim Jenkins.
    Skipjack Class - Submarine
    Christmas present to myself, one Revell - Skipjack 1/72 scale, to be converted to RC. Needed to purchase second hand transmitter 36mghz JR unit....ordering WTC from Nautilus Drydocks in the states...going to be a slow process...but rewarding. Have already built a smaller version of the Skipjack Class.
    Mr Rat
    I had it about 2 years then started the build it was a bit of a squeeze to get every in the rat and near the end i decided to put red led lights in the eyes and the kids love it .
    This is a narrowboat made from plans including internal fittings. The scale is at 1:24. It is based on a 65ft hull. The hull construction is 3mm ply. The plans were purchased from WWW.SCALEMODELDIY.COM
    Norstar Wave Rider
    She has no motor as yet, she's empty at he present time except for a old prop shaft. That will need to come out. I will probably put in a small brushless after cleaning her up and repainting.
