Thames River Police Launch - Posted: 15 days ago by Northumbrian
Dave W
I hope this helps if not let me know & I will take more pictures
i was able to put a high deck in because of the size of the hull
it might be difficult to do this with the smaller hull take a look on SLEC they do the River Police Launch (last picture)it appears to to be risen at the front to take the motor etc

The Vintage Model Boat range are now being produced by SLEC Ltd. All our kits come with all parts cut by CNC router or laser, plus all the necesary strip wood is included, along with building instructions and plan.

The River Police Launch has been based on the old Veron Kit from the 1960's that we all loved at that time. The model is not a scale model but embraces the boat design of that era. The kit is now fully laser cut so all parts are pre-cut and most of the parts are now made out of high quality ply, so obtaining a good finish is easier to achieve. The model can be powered by a 7.2 volts standard buggy battery pack or ic power of .5-1.5 cc engines which is not in the kit, also we have not included any running fittings as we feel a lot of modellers will have or would like to choose for themselves, but we can supply these fittings if required.

It's looking nice Northumbrian. I have an original Veron that I found that is awaiting "refurbishment". I bought it because the model was the very first boat I ever built, as an 11 year old. I would like to see a pic of the power train and radio placement if possible. I have been trying to work out how to hide as much as possible, and I notice you have put a "high deck" in yours. Best of luck with the maiden voyage, Dave W.

VERNON River Police Launch - Posted: 22 days ago by Northumbrian
I built this from a set of plans that i had sized up it measures 43"x12" & runs on a 1400kv Outrunner Motor / 40A esc / 11.1v 5000mah battery 3 bladed Brass 50mm M4 Prop
I was waiting delivery of a new camera so could not record the earlier stages of the build

Thanks Bob, I have the same motor but in a 1000kv size, will use your system to mount into my 34" Huntsman, but i think i will use a 2 blade 40mm prop to start.

Hi Lads
I have a Sea Commander with a D3548-1100kv,3S Lipo,60Amp ESC and a 2 blade 40mm CNC prop.
I bought a Precedent Huntsman 34" a few weeks ago and may be running a 3639-1100 or a 3648-1450 instead of the D3548 motor.
As for motor mounts the aluminium angle works well and I just epoxy glue it in place.

Chris Craft Riva
Building a Chris craft Riva from scratch seemed a good idea.. I use three ply scrap wood costing three euros fifty cents so far.But I have in stock rolls of two inch wide veneer which I wrap around the stringers. So far it's three thicknesses thick which I feel is enough. Next stage is a hard sanding then a varnish before the 100 and things to do to it.
Any comments appreciated and ideas.
Alan

NickW's boat's - Posted: 4 months ago by NickW
My three latest aquisitions: a pleasure launch, a speed boat and a landing craft rigged out for the Vietnam war. The landing craft is ready to go, as is the speed boat (speed boats not my thing to be honest) but the pleasure launch will be a project. I intend to replace the upper cabin, strip the paint and maybe just varnish the hull, add some planking for the deck plus it needs all the running gear....should keep me busy for a while
