    Original Aerokits restored. Fitted with brushless (750kv) and ESC with water cooling. Motor mounted on aluminium block drilled for water cooling. PropShop prop.
    Speed is scale and full throttle takes the majority of the boat out of the water. I had to add about 1 kilo of lead in the bow and stern to bring to the waterline. (Motor: Propdrive 42-38) (ESC: Brushless Marine 80 Amp Forward & Reverse Generic Prestwich Models) (10/10)

    Thanks Martin
    Yes, reduced to the ranks ☹️and I will change, immediately.
    The model really flies and I added spray rails to keep the water out of the cockpit. She is now crewed by some of the Starship Enterprise crew with Uhura at the wheel. Perhaps I should name her Enterprise Explorer? I will update the pic when the repairs and flag correction are complete.

    Thanks Colin. I have always liked the Airfix models and have the small crash tender and a couple of the 48" versions in wood and fibreglass to finish at some time. I am just repairing the keel on the Sea Queen with cloth and epoxy as the ply had delaminated. I have replaced the original ESC as it was forwards only and as our lake has the odd floating weed I needed reverse to escapeπŸ˜€. Hopefully will have finished so I can sail it on Monday.

    Very nice Dave,

    Great refurbishment
    Nice old boat and modern motor.
    I bet she runs really good with the brushless motor.
    Well done.
    Please look at the orientation of your flag.

    Martin555.
