    I built this in four weeks working every day. Originally a static display kit I have converted the build suitable for RC.
    I've used a Raboesch sealed prop shaft, a 2836 brushless motor and a Hobbywing car ESC.
    I decided due to lack of time to leave this in clear coat and it seems to go down well with observers. I added many extra details that are not a part of the kit. I've posted a link to the full photo gallery in chronological order.
    Questions are welcome.

    How about obsolete classics? I built a Midwest Boothbay 30" Lobster boat not that long ago. Problem is you just cannot get them anymore (apart from the 2 unbuilt kits I have in my locker) ๐Ÿคฃ Looks absolutely to die for but not much help when you can't buy one.

    EDIT re quality thank you. I do have over 45 yrs as an electrical/engineering craftsman so I know how to use tools

    Hi T33,
    "I didn't know there was a harbour ๐Ÿค”. How much room is there ?๐Ÿ˜‚"
    There are guys here with around twenty boats/ships in their Harbours.
    So you needn't start worrying - yet ๐Ÿ˜‰
    At an average of one boat every 5 weeks I reckon you're OK for about two years yet ๐Ÿ˜€
    Your building rate makes me quite breathless.
    Slow down, you're embarrassing some of us ๐Ÿ˜ฎ๐Ÿค”
    Cheers, Doug ๐Ÿ˜

    Hi T33,
    You can edit as long and as often as you want.
    We look forward to that ๐Ÿ˜€
    Really great work ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘
    I'm converting a Billing Fish Cutter, Gina 2, from static to RC.
    But I got mine already built - very badly - which complicates matters fitting the running gear ๐Ÿค”
    Cheers, Doug

    I've just added one of many but I'm unsure how long the editing time is. Is it something I can edit indefinitely? as I progress.

    That is a question that i don't know the answer to.
    All i can say is just keep adding to it and then we will see if we need to do something about it.

    Very nice.
    You should put all your models in your Harbour.
