Title: its my VIDYUT.. (Lightning).. the mighty OPV..
Post by: Krishna on September 21, 2014, 06:50:08 PM
she is 4 feet long, with expanded polystyrene, and foam board.. my new OPV, with all goodies like horn and full lighting.. she is powered by a out runner brushless, with water cooling, and a standard servo for control.. i realized her as part of my new OPV class matches to my all other crafts.. she is so light in weight.. finished her in high quality PU, in to dark sea grey, along with PU clear coat for salt water use.. she is fast, nimble and maneuverable..

working with expanded polestrene and foam board is so easy and enjoyable.. very inexpensive also.. used L E Ds and L E D strips for lights..

That looks good, Krishna!
You never cease to amaze me what nice models you manage to build from Expanded PolyStyrene and some simple additions.

I missed this thread. What does the 'O' mean in OPV? I assume PV stands for patrol Vessel? Splendid work Krishna!

Krishna:  Your inventiveness and creativity are outstanding.  It seems you come up with a new and unique build almost every week.  I love your builds, but you must be running out of space to store them all.
