    Hi! I am in NZ myself and i have found that I can get all my Electronics and most of the boat parts like rudders - propellers and shafts Plus couplings! the only draw back is the delivery time 2 to 4 weeks but there again I have found the prices are a lot lower than NZ prices including the postal costs .

    I wish we had a boating lake like that here in Christchurch NZ ! I know when I lived in the UK in the sixties I used the boating pool in New Brighton and that was quite good! ( I lived in Eastham then) All we have here is a small pond in the local park ( good for small boats )๐Ÿ‘

    Hi, I have the same boat that I bought a couple of years ago as a uncompleted static model for my model railway. I was going to motorize it and put R//c gear into it but had no ideas as to how! after seeing this post I can now go ahead and do the modifications and will be able to use it on the small pond I am setting the railway around>๐Ÿ˜œ

    Hi! This is my first post!
    Has any body have a plan for the Juno tug boat as i have received 3 plastic hulls 1 Juno, 1 Coastguard and one Fishing boat I have found locally the Coastguard and the Fishing boat but no one in NZ seems to have the Jun.
    If anybody has one could I possibly buy it from them and pay postage.
    Thanks Mike
