[Score: 8/10] 37"/3600g SENTINEL. Customs cutter. Capable of 6mph Twin Propellors (2 Blade X Type 35mm) Direct Drive to a MFA/ como drills (2 Blade X Type) Powered by NiCad (7.2v) Batteries Controlled Through Electronize FR15HX ESC - Comments: This is the first boat I had made using about eight sheets of plain styrene sheet.cutting all the parts,and using a vernier gauge to help me make exact parts. A full set of instructions came with the kit and I found it very easy to follow. The hull is very good.sailing on calm sunny days it sits in the water perfect, turning at speed is very realistic, in leans like motor bike.I built this some time ago and I never stop looking at it and thinking what else can I do to make this more realistic,so now it's back on the table and I'm planning to make the radars work, and after this nav/ lights, and on.
Hi Surfacesub They are Discontinued about 2009 or so I believe, you might want to try looking on Ebay! Or You might also want to look at http://www.harbormodels.com/slip115.html The Sentinel Patrol boat. Ed Sorry, I just noticed it's out of Stock. 😡
Hi I helped a friend build the Sentinel from Model Slipway. The stabilisers are connected by push rods to the rudders and do work well in preventing the model from listing heavily in fast turns. I no longer have access to the model so can't provide a picture of the linkages. It did require some fetteling to get the setup correct but the end result was justified. Both stabilisers are linked together by rods that run to the rear and connect with the twin linked rudders. If you can source a plan from someone I do recall the details were given. Cheers Dave
Am trying to research building a model of the Daman 4207 Patrol vessel, used as the base for many coastal patrol vessels including HMCC Vigilant & Vailiant. A similar, slightly smaller vessel was build by Vosper as HMCC Sentinel etc. Both of these vessel types use a mid-hull mounted stabilizer/rudder at about spray rail level linked to the actual rudder. Understand the purpose of this stabilizer is to reduce roll in turns. Does anybody have any details of these items and particularly how they are linked to and work in conjunction with the rudder?
Hi Yes Its a new Kit, I should have put more photo's so you could see It needed building all I have done Is fit the prop shafts rudder tubes a servo for the rudder and tested It In a water tank.
