    Thanks for the info on your model, Dave. I thoroughly agree that the 50/60's models of the 'RAF Navy' vessels have a lot going for them. There's nothing nicer than a planing hull and two hot brushless!

    Hi wunwinlo
    This was built by another club member and sold on when he finished sailing models so we do not have the plan. It is a model of a Sea Plane tender and was probably built in the 1960's. It could have been a kit from the Maycraft stable or even Veron but also possibly built from a plan in Model Boats or its predecessors. Doug replaced the brushed 550 motors with two 2028 brushless arounf 1000Kv with scale 3 blade brass props and 11.1v LiPo 2200Ma. Models from this period are very nostalgic and I look forward to seeing your model some time in the future,
    Cheers

    hI, I like your model. Is it from the old Precision Models kit for the High Speed Patrol Launch? It looks very similar. I bought a similar model at auction two month'ago. I am giving it a refit and upgrade. The huge old brushed motor is coming out, replaced by two brushless, all the windows will be glazed and the lights reconnected. Got a lot on at the moment, so it might be an while, so don't hold your breath! If it is t he Precision Models kit and you have a copy of the draaeing, Iwould very much like a copy. Naturally, I will fully reimburse you

    At first I was surprised to see you with boats on open water in Canada.
    This week we finally have open water in Central MN, but it was just on the news that there is still 18" of ice on the lakes in northern MN.
    THEN, I looked at a map and realized that you are considerably south of me. Basically as far south as the MN Iowa border.
    OK, I'm jealous! I want to be able to play on the lake with my toy boats too!

    My mtb's of mtb 389. Built 40 odd years ago and left in the loft where it collected dust and soot. When I retired I brought it down, fitted a Graupner 700 motor in and ran it on 14.4v. It plains very realistic. Thanks for the video...๐Ÿ‘

    ๐Ÿ“ท Sterling models Chris Craft 63' LOA 40 inches.
    3 months ago by Brightwork ( Lieutenant)
    Flag
    Update on my Sterling Chris Craft 63'
    Well.... I redid the windows. Added new curtains and after adding the headliner to the wheelhouse, I realized I had not added the spot and anchor lights topside. So, I took it all out and built a new mast with light and drilled out the solid spot light and added a lens. I sanded and filled the imperfections on both cabin tops and repainted them. I wired everything to an external switch. LED are all 3 volt. I also noted that the stations that hold the aft roof extension were not to original Chris Craft pics, so I made new ones. Aft ones now rake in line with the wheelhouse windows. Looks more like they grew there. The photos do not do her justice. Quite happy with her. Enjoy

    Exploring the possibilities of a new sleeker look to the Wee Nips that I have built previously , - I created the "Slim Nip" just as a development from the original classic Graham Bantock design.
    Length - 720mm
    Beam - 166mm
    Keel depth - 290mm
    Mast height - 1130mm above the deck.
    Maintaining the simplicity and convenience of a Uni rig , easy to transport , easy to rig , & no guys .
    Result was : - a new look, light wind, high aspect ratio - "Slim Nip".
