Ok here is my first attempt.
Not yet finished painting the mast and top superstructure and have to 'tidy up' some bits but it's nearly there.

Red Oktober`s agent in Scandinavia was ordered to investigate the possibility of producing a flat-pack Springer submarine to reduce shipping and postal costs . A scale model of course.

Hi Folks.


After a long time in racing boats (and I still am) I have begun to build a tug, my 6yo daughter has told me she wants a boat and then... I found Springers!


How cool are these and very simple!


I have scoured the pictures and there are some great models on here...


I would really like to build either a RLNI ir a coast Guard boat but....


If I was to scale up 50% what motor/s and prop/s would I want?


This will not be for comp's, just for fun and for my daughter...


Any advice would be great!


Many thanks,


David.

Check out the ABS Kit that is built by FHM (i think)
 
It looks a real fun boat...
 
Sprinter i think the kit is called...

SHG models did the sprinter.
In the 2010 Catalogue but not on
the web site now.
Might be worth a call.
It was Springer size  18" by 8"
550 motor and all the running gear
plus some fittings and decals for around
50 squids.

Thanks guys.


Although the sound of building a kit boat is appealing, I am on my way to building this from scratch!  :-))


I have marked out the sides for the "standard" 18 X 8 Springer for my daughter. I have in my box of bits a motor with gearbox and just about everything else... I think???


Really, my question was... If I was to scale it up 50%, What should I aim for as far as drives, motors and so on...


I was thinking, twin 50ish mm Korts, direct drive 540/600 motors running for 2 12V 7A batteries...??? Maybe????

Aeronaut De, make the Ramborator kit. Standard size, plenty big enough. Should be available from usual model boat shops like Cornwall et al :-))
