Schnellboot & Fairmile D - Posted: 8 months ago by reilly4
Both boats are 1/24 scale The E boat belongs to a good friend. It has just had a new camouflage pattern added. The Fairmile D is scratch-built, it took nearly 4 years to build, launched in 2011. The sound effects were added for fun. The location is Albert Park lake in Melbourne, Australia
Excellent boats. i have scratch built a vosper 510 1/24 scale known as the long boat. Im also building a 73" vosper 379 which has become a bit of a project? Its a bit big and i am not looking for trying to sail it in my local pond. last time i tried it i nearly chucked myself in the pond to the delight of some onlookers.
Thank-you. We use car drive belts to assist with launch and retrieval of the boats. They are easy to carry about, maintain their shape in the water and don't slip from under the hulls. these belts are about 900mm long so you won't have to bend far when launching.

Realistic looking model. Is it built from scratch or a kit? Might you post some more detailed pics of the insides? You could start a build blog and descibe how you constructed the model, plus post some pics. Only 4 pics per post so best to take the pics and then post with comments. More pics and more comments can then be added. Thanks for sharing Dave 😀
