    (Other) Skimmer
    built from styrene. Used some online plans as a guideline. (8/10)
    (Working Vessel) Kingfisher
    Built from plans downloaded on the internet. Hull is planked with a wood deck planked over ply. The superstructure is also made in wood, mostly 3mm ply. (ESC: viper 15) (8/10)
    (Working Vessel) STERNWHEELER
    This is a Sternwheeler built from scratch. Drawings from "Radio Controlled Boats" by Graham Goodchild. (ESC: HOBBYPOWER) (7/10)
    (Yacht) yawl Argyll
    This is a sailing Yawl base on the yacht Argyll. The hull is 41" long with a full keel. There is a single drum winch servo that controls all the sails. in the static display mode she has 2 head sails as per the real boat. When rigged for radio control sailing the 2 head sails are replaced for a single head sail. The radio control equipment is an older Spektrum D6 with a Spektrum receiver. The hull is an epoxy construction and was given to me by a club member an that was down-sizing. The sailing rig was all made by myself. (8/10)
    (Working Vessel) Bertha
    Scratch built from Marine Modeller plans. One sail drum servo for the main and self tacking jib. A sail arm servo for the staysail and foresail. An extra servo to allow tension on the upper trisail. The bowsprit is an additional 10" on the overall length of the model. For RC sailing I have a 2.5kg detachable keel and rudder extesion ( shown in the photograph). All the deck winches are built from old clock parts. The lee boards are also functional and work in conjunction with the forward head sails and the sailarm servo. For transportation the top mast can be lowered and the bowsprit raised. (8/10)
    (Naval Ship) MTB743
    This is a Failmile 'D' MTB. This version and number were operated by the 65th Canadian MTB flotilla in the English Channel. I made the model as this version as my Uncle was one of the crew. This model hull is built from scratch in the in the same was the real boats were using double diagonal planking. The propulsion is with 4 props paired using a dual ESC by Action Electronics and 2 11.1v LIPO batteries. These MTB were powered with 4 Packard 4M-2500 Engines with a hull speed of 34.5kts. Armament:- 4 x 18" torpedo's, 2 x 6pdr Mkv11 guns, Twin 20mm Oerlikon gun, 2 x twin Vickers Machine guns on powered mounts, as well as other smaller machine guns on the bridge. For more info goto the Manitoba Maritime Museum (Motor: COMBO 380) (ESC: ACTION ELECTRONICS) (8/10)
