ANOTHER BOAT BOUGHT...
« on: July 14, 2018, 11:56:32 PM »

Last time my wife was away I bought a bath tub...er 1/6 scale fibreglass Us seal insertion boat...yes the one that was 6ft long  :embarrassed:


Now, she has gone away to go and see her brother...so what do I do...yep, bought another boat.


This time I got some smaller  :-)


Some of you know the Hobby ready to run jobbies, they retail around 150ish, I found one on Ebay that was local to be, no transmitter or battery but managed to get it for 40.


So, managed to get the deck off, stripped out the innards and replaced the speed controller, receiver etc and she is now on 2.4G. I already had all the gear spare so it has just cost me 40.


So, when weathered and rusted she will great to chuck on the water and have some fun.

My models are not nice, clean and ship-shape. They be mucky, grubby, rusty and smelly.
