On the water Corvett - Posted: 18th Jul 2018
Realigned motor to shaft painted hull add waterline and ballast and K40 runs well on 7.2 to 12v
A nice model to have a good size and attractive on window sill.

Rebuild Flower Class Corvette - Posted: 24th Jun 2018
Brought this completed 72nd scale Revell kit (normally around £125-150 new) second-hand in a local shop for £30 as per photos, no transmitter.

changed 400 motor for a geared 540.
changed ESC as control was poor acted like an on off switch.
foamed bow area and added some plastic supports to the hull as shown, modify battery box.

Looks like a real bargain.

Great when you have a model to sail and also display on your window sill.

I built an Italeri PT 109 six years ago and this is the same.

Its very rewarding when you motorise a plastic kit as when at the lakeside people come up and say did you really build that.

Plastic magic never fails.
