Palaform Grffin 600 Hovercraft by Skydive130 Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 3 days ago
So, have given the Vosper RTTL a break as have this Palaform Griffin 600 Hovercraft itching to be built! Having read a few build blogs on other sites, have decided to beef it up in places as we build as 3mm Depron isnt the strongest medium out there. I was going to copy all the parts to balsa and build it entirley from Balsa, but figured that would just increase the weight too much? I shall finish the model in a psudo RNLI colour scheme!

Many thanks for your kind comments Mark, I am just pleased that moving sideways from Aircraft (will still continue to build and fly aircraft!) has been worthwhie. Many more projects to follow including the Veron RTTL on the building board as we speak and the Palaform Griffon 600 hovercraft next!

Palaform Griffon 600 RNLI by ModelHover Lieutenant   Posted: 30 days ago
The kits are made by Palaform Ltd see website www.modelhovercraft.co.uk This one is a Griffon 600 made from deprom. Very easy to assemble. Get the electrics pack with it rather than supplying your own.

A 600mm long model hovercraft built from a kit using Depron polysyrene. Excellent kits and extremely light, quick on the water and very quick on polished surfaces such as sports halls. Contact Palaform for further info. Just Google them. Use styrofoam paint to decorate otherwise you risk melting the polystyrene.

I am just waiting for the sails from Mastman then i can complete the build I have changed the drum winch for a standard servo i extended the arm it gives more pull on the sails seems to work better time will tell like all my buddies i am thinking about my winter build i am torn between a hovercraft or a smaller barge i will probably end up doing both 😉
