I bought this yacht via a well known auction website. It was owned by an old gent who had passed away and was covered in dust and the ABS white hull had yellowed with age. I cleaned the yacht up, rubbed the timber decks down and varnished them, re-painted the superstructure, rubbed down the hull and spayed the hull a grey/brown colour. It came complete with auxiliary motor, batteries, sail winch servo, ESC and navigation light switching unit. The yacht sails perfectly and looks great on the water. A real bargain buy.

She handles very well on the water, great on turns it's like she is stuck to the water. Hardly any roll at all. But then like an idiot I ran her up the side of the pond and now need a new prop and prop shaft fitted.

The boat is an ARTR, you have to fit your own receiver and battery and use your own transmitter. I will be using Spektrum™ 2.4GHz DX2E marine radio system and the MR210 marine receiver. I have fitted in the receiver but up to now I haven't run this yet, but looking at online video it should be quite fast. Well that's what I am hoping. The transmitter I am using is the one that came with my Proboat Miss Geico. But the receiver is a newly purchased one.

Like many clubs we suffer from weed problems at times. Airboats skim over the weed so can be sailed when the weed is prolific. Mobile Marine provide the hulls and top so construction is quick. Ken is at the controls at present but Barbie is throwing a hissy fit so will be strapped on in his place soon.

Hi. Not scratch built,and not quite finished yet but from the Italeri 1.35 Plastic kit.Sails really well, and has a good turning circle even using the three rudders provided with the kit.I have fitted all three shafts but only connected two at this time.Centre shaft is running free but I am able to connect a third motor if I wish. Customised to suit my likes and NOT exactly to real time paint scheme. Front and rear guns rotate on separate servo systems from a six channel Futaba system.Also has an engine noise generator coupled in with forward/reverse. Really nice addition to the fleet on the water. On a separate note the video clip is of a smoke generator just fitted to my Corvett and not connected to the Schnellboot.Just a tester.

This is a sailing Yawl base on the yacht Argyll. The hull is 41" long with a full keel. There is a single drum winch servo that controls all the sails. In the static display mode she has 2 head sails as per the real boat. When rigged for radio control sailing the 2 head sails are replaced for a single head sail. The radio control equipment is an older Spektrum D6 with a Spektrum receiver. The hull is an epoxy construction and was given to me by a club member an that was down-sizing. The sailing rig was all made by myself.

I made this boat when I was 16. My Dad brought two pieces of wood home from the sawmill that he worked at that he had shaped roughly. I added the keel, bildges and shaped the hull. Wheelhouse is made of card and this is the current one ( I think there has been 4 different designs!). Gantry is made of brass. No power, she sails on the wind! Pulled back to shore by a line! Based on one or two of the inshore beach boats at Dungeness in Kent at the time. Pictures here are from two years ago when I dusted her off, put the flags on and reminisced!

I ordered a Cygnus wheelhouse from Models by Design. Windows and door cut out. I have constructed the interior out of 2.5mm PVA board which I will paint to replicate wood. I will be adding a sink and a small cooker to the galley on the aft wall. I have cut the cooker area out but still have to cut the sink.
