    Model of the American Coast Guard WPB 110 Island class with a size of 95 cm. Equipped with two AC motors, two regulators, 2 x LiPol batteries 4000 mA, 7.4 V. Laminate construction and some ABS plastic parts. Since I have a 3D printer, I print some things like a mast, ventilation, etc. myself. The model will be completely illuminated according to the actual ship.

    Inkoust,
    I am impressed. A very clean build. The superstructure is thin fiberglass, yes? She should move right along nicely. We have several of that class on our coast and it is not rare to see them operating.

    Mine is totally scratch built Bruce as normal with my other boats no plans. I got in touch with the USCG in Florida and they kindly sent me the photos so I could work out what size model I wanted to construct. I have the habit of building "big". The radio/radar mast is made from wire coat-hangers and parts of the crane and stern rail also from plastic c/hangers. Mostly built from various thickness of plastic sheet, a cheap vessel to make.

    Nicely done Inkoust, here is one I constructed a few years ago. Length is 142 cm. Power is 2 Ford Fiesta car heater motors 12v or 6 v salvaged from a scrapyard running on two props. If on 12 volts the speed is much too fast. Both radars work one being halfway up the mast. The scale is 1/23.
