I got this boat off of a model boat club member for my son about 15 years ago, he used it about six time the put it on the shelf in the garage and that's where it has sat ever since. so the other day lifted it down and looked at it, dusted it off and going to see if I can get it working, if so happy days I'll play with it till I can get something of my own.

Bought many years ago from Martin Models at E Port spring show. Swapped with a friend who built the model. Now back in my possession following his death. Uses three internal tanks for water ballast plus about 1lb lead to bring to waterline. Has a Tomahawk smoke unit and smells like the real thing. Very stable on the water and looks the part.

My first attempt at building a plastic hull proved difficult due to the bends and curves but the final result was satisfactory. The lighting system/circuit also proved a challenge but she looked well at a recent illuminated regatta. All in all I am quite pleased with the final result

Elco 32 Built from Model Boat Plan by GG, circa 1999 ish.. Very lively even with a 400 class motor direct drive. An excellent project for the newcomer, very easy build and a good stand-off scale appearance. Deck armament was from plastic kits, very close in scale for the finishing touch.

My 1st foray in boat building, a Kitshack RTTL. Since its first build the motors have been upgunned from JP480's to the brushless it currently has along gradually increasing battery performance from NiMH to 11.1 Lipos. Twin props and rudder give this craft superb control on a straight run or cornering, no digging in, no torque roll and boy does it plane

This is my first working RC build but here goes. A bit vauqe about the fiqures because we are still on the slipway. It is scratch built from the Phil Thomas drawing "Shell Pioneer" Twin prop with Kort nozzle steering, bow thruster, working fire monitors and lights. Throtle & steering control via Action Electronics P40E mixer. 2x 2S25C4000mA lipoly's. 6 Ch radio (4 used). draws around 4.5A hope to get 30min run time minimum. Third ESC for bow thruster.
