Gibraltar Squadron's two Scimitar-class boats are the smallest commissioned vessel
s in the Royal Navy.
was to produce a fun semi scale racing boat
, I have always liked the Archer class boats cabin
design. So after finding a suitable hull, an old 'Models by Design' GRP moulding I was away with the rest of the build
Striped out all old fittings
and remnants removed excess glue.
Added strakes to the hull to add lift for planning and control.
Produced a semi scale deck and cabin
from light ply.
Thanks for your interest
