Title: 1/8 scale Higgins Boat Landing Craft WWII
Post by: Doug D on February 15, 2012, 07:51:33 PM
The boat itself is completed.
The initial float test is completed as well.
I am waiting on the motor, coupler, prop shaft, prop, custom made rudder and ESC to arrive

I read the Higgins story just before Xmas. A great story, definitely a "Character" & his arguements with the various ministries were great. Well worth a read!
