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.

Purchased this hull from Prelived for £35 and intend to create a fishing boat capable of trawling and netting. Scale will be 1:12 The black plastic is 2.5mm thick and has been used to give the gunnels some depth. There will be a layer of fibre glass applied. Updates as the build continues...

Purchased to sail when the wind is too strong for my J Class boats, this little plastic yacht has only one fault - The Cabin leaks if you don't tape it up - other than that it is a great little boat and lots of fun - how many yachts go as fast backwards as they do forwards?

She is a model of the original boat which was lost with skipper March 23rd 1983 off Portland. I had been building the static model since she was launched in March 1981 then ceased build when the tragedy took place and took my friend, the skipper. I recently moved to Burnham on Sea and joined Sedgemoor Model Boat Club and I was inspired to proceed with the build as an RC Model. Wish me luck !!!👍😊 The original boat was a Cygnus GM32. The hull and wheelhouse mouldings were supplied by Cygnus Marine Newlyn, Cornwall, as was the hull for the model. The boat was self built in Dartmouth by the owner/skipper as a Crab Potter. On completion she fished the waters off Dartmouth Devon during the summer months and then off Weymouth during the winter where she was subsequently lost en route for Dartmouth loaded with pots to transfer fishing activities back to home waters. She was a marvellous little sea boat and performed well in rough conditions. It is still a mystery until this day why she floundered. I hope her memory and the Skippers will live on through my model.

This little guy was built about 40 years ago. It is based on a ABS hull that was part of a Sterling kit made many years ago. I used the hull and just made up the rest. Originally it had a hedge clipper motor now it has a robbe motor and runs on 8 2/3 aa batteries. It is one of my favorites runners because it is little and really fast and maneuverable. Generally runs rings around other boats Currently it is on it third refit.

Scratch built Orca from movie "Jaws" Built from one 2 x 4! " We're gonna need a bugger boat" seeing my models people often ask if its a kit, and how much does it cost. Here I am holding the kit, one piece of wood, price $1.85 Here is the Orca in its carrying case. I found that this kind of carrier works well for me. It allows me to carry the boat in one hand leaving the other free to open doors, etc .It also makes it easy to put the boat down and pick it up again and protects it during transport.
