    These two ("little") beauties were given to me on the understanding they would go back in the water. I have started stripping them down to look at the hulls and repair as needed. Barbra 2 is 5ft 7inch in length and 15 inch wide, she originally had a 25cc petol enging (that I was also given) that I may put back in if it checks out OK, but I may swap out for electric, but Iam not sure what suit her. She will also need some heavy duty radio kit again not sure what. The other is a model of the Empire Orwell a German built ship as a hospital ship. She was captured by the british and use served as The Empier Doon, under the Orient Line untill 1950 when she was converted into a troop ship and renamed the Empire Orwell. !n 1958 she was agin sold this time to the Blue Funnel Line as the Gunung Djaiti, sailing as a pilgrim ship between Indonesia and Djeddah. She was finally sold to the Indonesian navy as the troop ship Tanjung Pandan untill being scraped in 1987. She is as a model agian just over 5Ft long and is in need of a bit of TLC, she has two electric motors, that I will get check out and she will needd radio kit. I have built RC boats before a long time ago , but never to this scale and hope to be asking some advice as I go along, one bit of advice being , How to make them lighter and more easy to handle. I hope I have put this blog in the correct page! And I will post the progress as I go along. I am looking forward to seeing back in the water.

    The Barbra is a nice looking model, Iโ€™m sure you will get the advice you need to get her back in the water
    Iโ€™m no expert but initial search for a 25cc petrol to a comparable brushless motor came up with a 5020 400KV brushless Iโ€™ve no doubt others will come up with an exact match
    Good look
