Hi all,
I have a pal who has come through a bad illness, he needs purpose, he loves rc boats, especially military, but doesnt own what I call a proper model.
If anybody has a refurb, in Merseyside, Wirral, Cheshire, can I have it? Very limited funds, so free to next to nothing please!
I will do the rebuild with him, its not for resale or profit,

Hi Paul. I know what you mean about needing a purpose around illness or disability, as I have a degenerative spinal problem which I use models to give me a sense of purpose. I'm just sorry I cant help with a model, but I hope someone else on the site may be able to help out.
Best wishes to you and your mate,

Hi Dave,
I took him out for a couple of hours today, he has a small "shop bought" boat that he converted to a gun boat. I had my 3 foot fireboat, and we got talking, he would love a pt, mtb, Fireboat or similar, so I've got to find a "in need of big repair" project!

thanks for links, unfortunately they are too small, he would find them too fiddly, so really 3 feet or bigger
