    Thanks Martin,

    Yep, I always start with web searches (proved useful for other models I've owned), but so-far nothing.

    Cheers Nerys, yes I like the proportions too. I'll fashion a cover for the open deck and take it to the pond for a try-out before I fit any servos.

    Hello.

    I recently rescued this model from a loft, and would love to know more about it.

    I'm guessing it's a 1980s model. The hull and deck are thermoformed plastic, it would seem. It's twin rudder and internally appears to be able to accept servos, although none are fitted.

    The name 'Scud' is, I think, original to the model.

    Anyone know what it is? Thank you in advance! πŸ‘

    Hello folks. Brand new here, so go easy! I have searched but not quite found what I am after. Apologies if I've missed the obvious. Having just finished a 36" Fireboat with my son, I am now thinking about the larger 46" version. The little boat is running a Radient Reaktor motor / ESC combo which is 3000kV with a matched ESC and 2S1P LiPo battery. Performance is pretty good, although we're still ironing out some cooling issues and vibration (old model resurrected). I am going to do the big boat 'properly' so am looking for recommendations for power, ESC and batteries. I am looking for overscale performance and tend to run on choppy water with currents (i.e. rivers😁). Thanks in advance, everyone!
