    Scratch built from an enlarged early MM plan for an 18" runabout for diesel or electric power. Twin high power (8-18v) brushed internal fan cooled 540 motors, twin fan cooled high power ESCs (3s-4s LiPos), twin 3000mah LiPos, water pump, forced air (air pump) smoke/water/ exhaust system (own design, refined working with Graham 93), lights, GT Power sound module, BT/SD/FDr player stereo (with IR remote,- radio using aux BT player.) Hull is f/glassed balsa with a ply deck and mahogany veneer transom.

    Most of the deck fittings (vents, fairleads,) are my own resin cast fittings, with some brass hand made fittings as well (wheel, rails cleats etc). Trailer is a work in progress

    Thanks Bob, - re the colour, saw a pic of a Chris Craft that colour, and took a punt on it. Turned out better than expected. A bit different to the usual all mahogany look.

    Well what can i say JB,
    From a modified drawing to a really beautiful scratched built boat.
    Excellent workmanship and a boat to be proud of.
    Well done sir.

    That is a very nice model JB, and I like the red and black colour scheme too.
    I have used red and black (with white cabin tops) on my restored Rapier and the colour choice always gets a lot of positive comments as being very "distinctive" (or "dramatic"), but either way - it always gets noticed! ๐Ÿ˜Ž
