Title: Police patrol boat
Post by: Cornelp on December 28, 2010, 03:35:54 PM
Good Evening Ladies and Gentlemen...

I posted this originally on RCG, but I wanted to share it here, maybe it could give some ideas to others...

It stated with a bare hull, made initially for a runabout, but, after an unofficial poll about what to do with it, I took Umi's suggestion and went for the patrol boat.
I found one quite interesting, the Souya:

and started building a structure, with the parts designed in Corel and cut in a local laser cutter shop:

From here, it was only about details, including radar, radios, dash, interior lights...

and finally I got the fire monitor done, but it's just a first version:

Finished version 2 of the fire monitor... completely functional and leakproof.

Now I have to start on the hull: sanding and more sanding... hate it!
