    This Higgins PT boat was built and sailed by a good friend of mine. it is scratch-built. it uses a single Turnigy 3639 1100kV brushless motor and LiPo battery. it is pretty new and has not had its number painted on as yet. its performance is excellent.

    Good to see a model of the Higgins PT Boat and a scratch built one at that. I had a Revell 1.72nd one back in 1961 when I was 9 but these became eclipsed the following year when the PT 109 film was released.

    Love the background music and your sailing water in Albert Park. The boat looks so realistic and you've now got me thinking of building one.

    Never yet seen a model of a Huckins P.T boat. is there anyone out there who has built one?

    Long live the plywood dream.

    Both great looking models. Where did you get your little men for the boat ? For my ninth birthday (1959) my parents bought me a 34" Crash Tender and my father (RIP) and I built it over several months and for Christmas that year they bought me an ED HUnter 3.46cc engine. As you said R/C back then was too expensive. We used to go out with it to the nearest pond it was about a mile and a half walk and use it there. Blackheath pond south London. it was either do a straight line to each other and then round in circles until it run out of fuel and the wait until it drifted back in with the breeze. When we built it my dad used to bring home old tea chests broken down in pieces and would use a fret saw to out out more pieces to build a second one at the same time. He said this was so that we didn't do anything incorrectly to the original one. That other one was given to my younger brother and they bought a Taycol Standard and put that in it for him. They were great fun in all we built seven of them 6 were out of tea chests and old orange boxes. He gave them away, I know one of them went to our milkman one to a work mate if his can't remember where the others went. When I left home when I was 20 I left mine there and I never found out where that one went. I have a 46" from the Vintage Model Workshop people and a 34" that I purchased in 1994 on the 50th anniversary when they made a limited run 50 of them, in my shed still in the boxes unmade. I drew round all the parts onto paper and on the Epson printer/scanner I reduced the parts and have built a smaller one I think she is 28 inches long. it is virtually all balsa wood the only parts that are not are the side stringers they are Obeeche strips and the two bottom skins where I done a second skin of 1/64th ply to strengthen it in case of any mishaps on the pond edges. I have not finished that one yet. She did have a trial run on water but due to a too larger 4 bladed prop and too big rudder and maybe the wrong motor she was a bit of a disaster I lost heart for a while after that. I had a bit of a mental brake down due to a serious work problem and gave up on her. That was about 6 years ago now and she is sitting on top of a cupboard in the living room . I will get round to finishing her one day, now I'm retired and back to good mental health.

    Some of my boats during a last weekend outing. Boats are at My Harbour. The blue boat (Fishfully Thinking") is based upon American-made Chris Craft 30 Tournament Fisherman, Stamas 32 sedan, and Bertram 28 boats. The yellow boat ("Cheapskate") is partially based upon a Bertram 31 sedan. The white vessel ("Juyilanga") was inspired on now defunct company's Uniflite 28-footer "Salty Dog" sport fisherman. Last but not least, the pink boat ("Pinkey Pie") belongs to my daughter and was built using an old Graupner kit inspired on a Chris Craft Roamer of the mid 60s. 😁

    Hello Doug! Actually, not in Juyilanga but in Fishfull Thinking. I took a line here and there from our plan for the superstructure. I utilized ABS plastic instead of wood. No need to mess with fiberglassing and no cracking on the Alpine cold waters. Notice that I used the same type of hull on these two boats. Happens that Fishfull Thinking was originally another boat I had, but not happy with the superstructure, I rebuilt the whole thing but kept its fiberglass hull almost intact. Both hulls were home made by a guy in California. 😁

    A short selection of the flower class corvettes of the Portsmouth Model Boat Display Team. All made from the same 1/48 hull mould, they are not exact replicas - more designed to look 'good' on the water. Finely detailed models do not tend to remain finely detailed for long with the abuse the Team puts them through!
    I am going through the photo collection and having a good sort out and reorganisation (thanks to my old laptop crashing) amd will post more as I can.

    Zoom 1 (Interceptor) Mono boat.
    Built from a Glassfibre hull, brought on Ebay for Β£35 the hull is a slim mono racing type with a self-righting side cabin it runs a 1400W 14V 2958 4200KV Brushless Motor and 29-S Water Cooling Jacket with additional air cooling fan.
    I did not want to use a flexi drive as high maintenance and prone to failure so the shaft runs via two universal joint one at each end. the propeller is a 38mm copper alloy
    The ESC is a 200W and water cooled the twin rudders supply separate water one for the motor and one for the ESC.
    The rudder are positioned to reduce prop-walk and are hinged to prevent damage if you hit a object in the water and also for ride adjustment.

    Turn fins and trim tabs for ride adjustment were provided by a spares kit for another boat. also foamed and added an inner sealed hatch, a rubber bump strip and safety loop.

    Hi Jugge, love the lightingπŸ‘
    Small tipπŸ˜‰ the red & green Port / Starboard lights should only be visible from ahead and up to maximum 90Β° to either side. This is so that others can see if the ship is coming towards them or going away. Happy sailing, all the best Doug 😎

    Hi Jugge, all you need to do is fit a 'lighting board' like these-

    Hi Jugge, I didn't mean you should buy these lamps, just make some Light-boards, like in the pics, to add to your own lamps! πŸ˜‰
    Thin brass strip does the job and is dead easy to solder. πŸ‘

    OR; buy those complete lamps and simply wire them in series across your 6V supply: 3V + 3V = 6V 😊
    Whatever; have fun doing it, cheers Doug 😎
