In case anyone has been looking for one of these, I have a VS-8 Hydrofoil basic kit, by 32nd parallel up for sale... $600.00 US, buyer pays shipping. I've added a pic of what this will look like when finished...
Very interesting model. But I fear not a lot of use on here as this is a United Kingdom based model boat forum. And I think shipping to the UK will put it out of the reach of many (If the price hasn't already £525 over here). Best of luck with your sale on eBay. Kindest regards, Dave W 😊
Hello to all; I've just tested the link and it works from my end. If you can't get it to work go to ebay, toys and hobbys, radio control vehicles and kits and then boats and ships. Should be able to locate it that way. I did reference with someone with interest in Germany and the shipping would work out to @ $70 U.S. I think this is the only one I've seen up for around 5+ years, and while it will take some dedicated work, definately will be a one of a kind RC model at yor local site.... Thanks for all the replys spunky52
Oh and by the way; I should mention to everyone, if they haven't gone to look at the listing, that this is the basic kit, new in the box, but the picture shown was from a long ago issue of a scale ship modellers' review article... just thought to add that... spunky52
I think the company closed back in the late 80's but I don't have any real info on that.... Somewhere I read they didn't sell many of these, as their kits, (this and submarines), were on the high price side way back then... all hand laid up items...
Hi Spunky, I assume that you are kidboatguy from Kent City Michigan? (I'm a 'Man of Kent' from UK!) Having done some research I could be seriously interested at $500 + shipping. So if it's not gone by Saturday (I note there is only 4 days left on the auction) send me a private message. Cheers Doug 😎

Hi; Thanks for your consideration on the kit. I will keep your offer in mind, but I do feel that it is a bit low considering the cool factor and complete rareness of this item. I see you really like my avatar as well😁 I'm from Kent County...thanks
