    Using bits from a cheap self driven hoover bought by a friend from Wish.
    Total useless as a hoover but bits great for radar , flashing leds and battery.

    ๐Ÿ“ Props removed

    i had the props when i saw a build using jet drives.
    Wow , more like the real thing. Found them on ebay from china at a good price.
    removed the props and rudders, patched up the holes and fitted the jet drives using the motors i was going to use for the project.
    Had a few problems with leaks however now fixed.
    Bath test looks promising.
    Paint job as per Malaysian Police.
    A bit different.

    I started this quite a while ago, ideas came from model boats mag.
    A fun boat for my grandson.
    With no plans had to scale , etc from photographs.
    Build was using plywood from an old wardrobe ( this is built out of the best of birch ply of various thicknesses.
    I fitted twin prop and rudders (not shown) however changed direction after viewing a different configuration.
    More info later

    Hi,

    I like it!
    It looks very different!

    Will you be making the canon for the front?

    Cheers, Ed

    Hi Hillro, I was looking at a Swedish version about a year ago (after watching a YouTube vid about some guys exploring an old abandoned mk1 version in a fijord) which is built in a similar style. Quite an interesting concept for fast deployment, (split foredeck opens and ramp deploys). Be interested to see what you have done. What size are your jet units and how are they looking for thrust etc, ? (I've got a 26mm one coming for my Hartley cabin boat project, and it looks the same type as yours) Are you going to have a crack at making reversing buckets?
