What a little gem. Looks superb on the water. 😀 I hope you have Sweet Pea well mounted on the fore deck, but with Popeye as skipper what could go wrong 😉 No Spinach? Did you make the figures yourself?
You'll have to do Bluto next In a suitable mean looking vessel 😊
Really brightened my day In spite of the wet weather (again!)
Well done 😀
Response by Mallory on the 10th Jul 2012
HI Dave, the figures were purchased of eBay as a set. I have Bluto but as of yet have not decided what to do with him ❓
Response by circle43nautical on the 11th Dec 2017
BRAVO ZULU! The boats great & the figures ice the cake!
BTW- POPEYE IS A US COAST GUARDSMAN-
SEMPER PARATUS/PARATUS GERERE
HAVE A SAFE RC BOATING DAY!
GOD BLESS AMERICA

SEA SCOUT - Posted: 6 years ago by Colin H.
Here are a few pics of my Scout which wwas originally built In 1958, but left In my parents loft when I left home In 1966, but thankfully still there when my Mum asked me to clear the attic for Insulation Installers last year.
So far have cleaned It and fitted a MabuchI Brushed motor of unknown power, but appears to work well at 6Volts running a 2 blade plastic prop 30mm 'S' type.
Havent got round to fitting radio gear yet, so have done tests as a free sailer, setting rudder on a slow arc and watching as I walk round pond.Will update as soon as next stage Is complete.

Thanks and no restoration work yet, but may have to coat hull as some seepage at joints.Will hopefully be able to keep model Integraty without too much trouble.

I've enjoyed the various pictures of your Sea Queen Larry and It's always been one of my favourites- ever since I was about thirteen when one was completely out of my reach. I'm hoping to start one ( a Jotika kit) as soon as my present restoration- a Wavemaster- Is complete.
By the way I loved the Bobby- I've built two of those In my time, both gone west I'm afraid.
How's Lulonga coming along?

Ian

I am In theb process of restoring a similar model, also of bthe 1950/60s era. one thing about, they were well made. It's nice to be able to pick up a model without It being fragile!!!
To start, get motived, and once you start, It will carry on from there. Piles of wet and dry, and somewhere to putbit bso that sanding becomes almost(!) a pleasure.Once the fisrt coats go on, tou will be pleased to It take shape again.

good luck:
Response by jelley_baby on the 3rd Dec 2012
HI I to have restored one, once you get started Its well worth It, they sail really well and with modern electric power will run for a reasonable time when being used.

😊 Good luck with the rebuild. 😊
Response by cakfilth on the 4th Dec 2012
Thanks,
I think It will be a good winter project.

sea commander - Posted: 7 years ago by markh
I built this boat was built as a tribute to my dad who built an original Sea Commander for my brother and myself In the 1960s, and Is called Lady Kathryn after my other half.
The pleasure I had building and sailing this model has Inspired me to to look for my next aerokit project.
Hopefully that will be the Sea nymph this was my first attempt at building.
