Hi all, Has anyone got info on where you can source the plans or a kit for a Kingfisher? I'd love to have a go a building one but don't seem to be able to find a scrap of information on the model. Cheers Jon
Hi, I'm currently in the process of building my first model. It's one of my fathers that has been sat in the loft, kit form for 30 odd years. I have the decals to turn it into a fire boat but I'm struggling to find a suitable monitor to place on the coach house roof. Can you remember where yours came from?
Thanks again for the info Boaty, I've decided to fit a Brushless 28/38mm 3500KV motor with a 35Amp ESC. The motor seems to have quite a bit of torque and runs at a high top speed, though its first sea trial will tell all. When I get it fully assembled I'll post a few images on the webpage. Thanks again for the help 😀 Regards Jon
Hi Kalamunda, I'm currently building an FPL and have fitted a thin piece of silicone tube between the rudder shaft support tube and the tiller arm on the top of the rudder shaft, this seems to stop the ingress of water into the rear compartment. I hope this helps!! Jon
