    That’s great, thanks for the link. I will go on there now and have a read. My Father will be looking to add a decent motor to his Crash tender from Slec. We purchased it for him for Christmas.

    Good luck with the rest of the build.

    Lovely Job, well done, these are excellent little boats. I fancy building the bigger one now in the Aeronaut range. Make sure you get some weight in her though. Mine flew across the pond the other day and turned over. (No damage, just my pride) it’s way to fast. Good luck with your Maiden πŸ˜‰

    Hi Doug, sorry for delay in replying. I’ve been trying to upload some video but it doesn’t seem to run so I’m stuck to show everyone how she runs on the local Pond. it was a lovely day thanks and she ran ok but I think she needs a bit of extra weight in the rear.I’ll keep trying or I may need to record at a lower quality rate, maybe that’s the problem.
    That’s great that the sea scout was your Dads model, just shows you that if they are built well they will last forever. Just seen the Belfast on your home page, now that is a nice ship. Keep up the good work.

    Hi Doug, Thanks for the links, just watch your YouTube clips and she runs lovely. I’ve seen that a lot of people have used those Turnigy motors so I might try one of them on my next build. I’ll read the blog over the next few days.

    What did you think if the kit as a whole to build, only asking as me and my sister have just purchased the Fire Crash Tender for our Father for Chrimbo. Thanks for all your tips, it’s much appreciated. I might try and get some clips of the classic over Gorleston pond today if the weather permits lol. Cheers πŸ˜‰

    Hi Doug, Thanks for you kind words it’s much appreciated. Ok I may try that then on the bigger version by Aeronaut, the Princess I think it’s called. I’m tempted to give that one a go. Your Sea Scout looks lovely. The finish really looks fab so I’ll be trying your tip. What motor are you running in your Scout. Cheers. Simon.

    Well that is very strange as me and my wife went to Lake Garda on our Honeymoon and we went out on a Riva as well. This was back in 1998, we will always remember the italian captain saying to us β€œDo you like speed” then opening up the throttles and off we went. Absolutely fabulous. So I can understand why you like these boats. it’s a small world lol πŸ‘

    Thankyou, I varnished it seven times and flattened between coats. I’m sure yours will come out fine, just take your time. My Dad has the Diva, he fitted a Brusless inrunner and that runs lovely. They are all great models in that range. I’m going to build another, just can’t decide which one lol

    Right, I've attached a few photos of the classic which hopefully will help with your build. They are a very simple and enjoyable kit to build, I really enjoyed it. The motor is a Brushless inrunner 220w motor BM400 2100KV V3 Blue. I purchased it from Gliders and it cost Β£25 including postage. it's an excellent motor and it's very fast. Hope you enjoy building it and don't forget to upload some pics afterwards. Good Luck.

    Hi, yes I've Just built my Classic. it's a great little model and I'm sure you will enjoy building it. I fitted a brushless motor with Lipo power and it goes like a Rocket. I'll try and upload some photos of I can fathom out how to and I'll let you know what motor I fitted. Watch this space and I'll get back to you shortly. Cheers Simon 😁
