Don't know how fast it is but straight from the box, nylon prop and 14.8 5000 mAh battery she is pretty fast. Turns on full lock of rudder at flat out. Great fun. Would recomend.

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.

I acquired the boat as an unfinished project, consisting of a decked unpainted hull and basic superstructure. Early replacement of lead acids with Lipos increased the speed and I think she looks really good on the water. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uwOalFnRjPw

Scale model of the American Marines PCF Fast river and estuary gun boat as used in the Vietnam war. Little bite about history of boat: also known as Swift Boats, were all-aluminum, 50-foot (15 m) long, shallow-draft vessels operated by the United States Navy, initially to patrol the coastal areas and later for work in the interior waterways as part of the brown-water navy to interdict Vietcong movement of arms and munitions, transport Vietnamese forces and insert SEAL teams for counterinsurgency (COIN) operations during the Vietnam War.
