    The colour scheme of the RTTL that we had running in our club back in the early 1960's had a black hull with red undersides, grey superstructures with white cabin tops - just like the colours used on the Aerokits fire and rescue launches.

    I have no idea what colour scheme's were used on these launches (in real life) over the years, but no doubt there would have been some changes.

    We had one of these Vic Smeed RTTL launches in our local club back in the early 1960's and it was powered by a Gannet 15cc petrol motor. Not overly fast but it look really good and sounded nice too!

    hi there

    The actual photograph that Sarik used is actually of the Vosper I built. It is built plank on frame and somewhere on Mayhem Forum - there is a build of my model which I put on there. If you can source the magazine The Model Maker 1958. It was a Christmas special. The plans were inside that mag. I believe it ran over 2 months - the original build by Vic Smeed

    That last post is not about Sarik. I hope those props have fairly slow rotation.
    So many ships . . . and so little time . . .

    I am thinking about building the RTTL 36” I think.
    Is it a difficult model to build?
    Is there a pre made hull available?

    Any help and advice thank fully received.
