    (Tug Boat) Smit Amsterdam
    This is a Graupner Premium Line.I wasn't happy with the universals and plastic 3 bladed props.Replaced the universals and changed props to 4 bladed brass.Also changed the prop shaft to a threaded 4mm shaft which I happened to have in my spares.She runs a lot better now with these changes.Still to come is lighting and sound. (Motor: 2-550 motors) (ESC: 50amp) (8/10)
    (Yacht) Micro Magic
    I aquired it from a member in our club.It came with 2 extra sails.It is a nice boat to take along especialy when you just want to relax by the pond side.Easy sailor. (8/10)
    (Working Vessel) Gina 2
    Billings kit.I started it in the early 80's.I lost interest in it and my Dad finished it.Now the boat is retired to being a static model.It does have operating lights installed. (Motor: Robbe 300 Slow) (6/10)
    (Tug Boat) Jersey City
    Dumas Kit.It still needs lights installed and sound. (Motor: MFATorpedo500) (ESC: Tazer12 50amp) (8/10)
    (Tug Boat) Carol Moran
    Dumas kit.Runs great but the torque is trmendous.Have to offset the torque. (Motor: kv893) (ESC: unknown) (9/10)
    (Working Vessel) Ethmar74
    It is a lindberg static kit converted to r/c. (Motor: converted servo) (5/10)
