Martin, many thanks for sharing this - so white it is for the cabin tops !
Only the RAF could be such perfectionists in their specs !
Cheers - Peter

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

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.

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.
