    Krick Felix
    Hi y’all..this is my Krick Felix. I built her about 2 years ago. This was my first scale or scale-like boat build. She’s powered by a long can Speed 400 type motor, has a Hobbyking Quicrun 1060 for an ESC, Frysky rx and tx. Has RAM nav lights, those are switched on and off with an old Zagi esc. I usually run a 6 cell nimh pack, but the esc will handle both nimh and li-po, so I sometimes run her with a 3800 mah lipo, which gives impressive run time. I don’t take her out much as I would like to, but hopefully she’ll see more water this year.
    Possible Tid Tug.
    Acquired as a Freebe at the local model club monthly meeting last Monday, possibly a Tid Tug only the stern is not quit right. Will spend some time restoring it our the next few weeks.
    Occre Ulises
    this one nearly finished.
    Ollie "G"
    Based on the kit Ayton Cross by Mobile Marine and dedicated to my two grandsons. I have added a working winch for towing aft, two working radars off the mast , running/ navigation, towing , wheelhouse and deck lights. Raboesch 19x22 bow thruster and sound system from Component Shop representing twin deisels. The two main 15amp ESC's are Electronize (unfortunately out of business now). The hull is GRP with wooden superstructure.
    Formidable, LT100.
    Wooden Drifter Trawler, Formidable, LT100. Scale 1:24th. Long term build. Work boat built first
    RO-Marin Neptun
    Christmas present last year, built over a couple of months of weeknights and days off. I’m real pleased with her, the kit was well thought out and the instructions and documentation were more than adequate to get her built. Krick has done a fine job of resurrecting the old Robbe line. I need to add ballast to the stern and rig/flag the mast, but for all intents and purposes she’s done, ready to play.
    Royal Daffodil ex OVERCHURCH
    After a complete refurb the Overchurch was renamed the Royal Daffodil. My model depicted here is scratch built on fiberglass hull to 1/48 scale. She now rests in my workshop next to the original Daffodil circa 1918 after she gained the "Royal" status for her role in the raid on Zebruggee in WW1 1918 together with her sister ship the Iris. The current Royal Daffodil rests in Vittoria Dock Birkenhead laid up and will not again see any service again.
    PT 109
    Scratch build from photos and old Elco plans. working spot and port, starboard lights. everything made except from people which was a racing car pit crew team.
