Yes It Is a 1950s Aerokits fast patrol boat. But I have got to make some parts which was missing when bought at the Antiques fair. You can still get reprints to build Aerokits . Try lesro models or ebay ? or this forum . A prestney

My father built me one of these In the 1960's, but alas It Is no more, but It was a lovely boat then and yours looks really good today, still quite modern looking. Graham (jelley_baby)
Response by aprestney on the 12th Nov 2011

Sea Queen Refurb - Posted: 8 years ago by loz
HI fellow model boat people,just a couple of photos showing a rescued aerokits sea queen circa late 50s.
This was In poor condition, work was started mid January to strip down the various parts that required to be remade, deck/superstructure/roof panels/windows etc.
The hull needed stripping back to give a good surface for the finished paint work.
Completion of the basic boat Is now getting near, and ready for fitting out with motor radio etc.
Hope to give more details later.
Cheers for now.

This looks great. Im just about to set off on the adventure of building a Range Safety Launch from scratch using a Vic Smeed plan set I have managed to obtain. The plans are 1/12th but I'm scaling down to 1/16th for practical reasons. Let me know how you get on or If you need copies of plans etc. Well done !

aerokits sea rover / modified fpl - Posted: 8 years ago by triumphjon
the sea rover was bought locally as a wreck with much of the forward section of the cabin missing , however It has been rebuilt In a matter of weeks to sailing condition , Its now running a single vision 600 motor on 7.2 volts , & has a reasonable turn of speed and very good rudder response ! the fpl was a double purchase as I bought a pair of hulls , one had a better finish than Its sister although this didnt matter as they were both stripped back to bare timber and resprayed with wilkinsons enamel spray . as the cabins were not remaining Ive made both boats Into vospers mk2 range safety launches , neither models are fully finished but Ive started to use 1640 , I know 1646 wasnt a number Issued by the raf , but as the model Is to be operated by my neice It was the number she has chosen !

Just got my Sea Rover today as well as an Aerokits MTB with a lovely Taycol Double Special In It. I'd forgotten how twisted the Sea Rover Is!!
It'll need some serious cutting and regluing aft. I need to remake the screen area and canopy. It has an original MFA Humming Bird 15 motor complete with the label.

Response by Westquay on the 10th Aug 2010
That reminds me, has anyone got any plans or details to finish the MTB? It has only a basic few bits of superstructure.
Cheers,
Westquay
