1/36 Ady Gil Trimaran Wave Piercer by rcmodelboats Lieutenant   Posted: 9 days ago
This build started out as a crap toy speed boat that resembled the New zealand wave piecer Ady Gil (ex- Earthrace) that was cut in two in 2010 by the illegal japanese whaling vessel Shonan Maru no2. The original speedboat toy was 22 inchs long and had straight wings that connected the pontoons, the wings and the pontoons have been changed and custom made onto the existing hull and the bow has been extended and sharpened (now 26in), the stern has been rounded. The hull has now been gel coated and i have started sanding it back.

Workers Hubertus Model Boat Club by rcmodelboats Lieutenant   Posted: 5 months ago
The Hubertus Model Club started with 18 members in 2004. By 2010 we are an incorporated club with over 100 members including ladies and juniors. All are eligible to run boats on the lake. In 2015 the main club was taken over by the Blacktown Workers club with the name changed to Workers Hubertus Country Club and the boat group changed to Workers Hubertus Model Boat Club.

Ionia by rcmodelboats Lieutenant   Posted: 10 months ago
It's not meant to be accurate and by no means a scale representation of Ionia but I agree about the starboard lean and will be corrected. Have a subwaterfilms on YouTube. The weight problem I don't think can be rectified but in future we will take this into account. Thank you for your feedback and merry Christmas Alex and Joe

Ionia by rcmodelboats Lieutenant   Posted: 10 months ago
Battery can be shifted along the hull to vary centre of gravity.

Ady Gil by rcmodelboats Lieutenant   Posted: 10 months ago
[Score: 6/10] 26" Ady Gil Twin Propellors (4 Blade 25mm) - Comments: This is my current model under construction and is built off a old toy speed boat. The old speed boat Panther had straight wings that connected the pontoons, these were cut off and it has taken lots of time to create the curved wings. I bought another panther to compare the 2.

Ionia by rcmodelboats Lieutenant   Posted: 10 months ago
The model was bought off eBay as a barely started kit from the 80s and was called Ontario. It was a basic model with no detail and so we decided to make it into a tugboat it had a huge resemblance with called Ionia.👍👍👍😊
