    I made this about 30 years ago.
    Unfortunately the photos are of photos as we did not have digital cameras in those days.

    My (Perkasa class) Hanalan P152 was also built about 30 years ago.
    It was my 1st kit, and was produced by Precedent, had fibreglass hull and rest was wood about 35in long.

    Martin have you still got your boat?

    Regards
    Roy

    Hi Roy,
    That is a very nicely made model.
    Well done.

    I don't know what happened to mine, i think it got left behind when moving house many years ago.

    Hi Martin and jbkiwi,
    Yes I still give it a run once in a blue moon, last time the centre prop-shaft had ceased up (saltwater) but got it moving again, currently runs with port and starboard motors = 2x Graupner 600 7.2v and centre motor is a 700 type motor, 3 shafts run 3x 35mm propellers and it has two rudders.
    Not quite the same as the 3 jet turbines in the real thing!
    The guns are remote controlled (Please note the stern/rear gun is not accurate and is just a copy of the forward gun Bofors 40mm and not the 20mm Oerlikon.
    Search lights, radar, running lights all work, the 3x ESCs are a cheap China ones that do the job but need to go to neutral before going in reverse, just use self centring joy sticks on the transmitter.
    I must admit it is a very stable hull even in poor conditions.

    Hi Jb,
    I think it was a case of who packed it for the move.
    I thought she did and she thought i did, Unfortunately it was not noticed for quite some time after.

    But i will still accept "IDIOT" LOL!!!!
