Title: 1/8 Scale Nitro Hydros
Post by: Tombsy on November 06, 2019, 04:21:55 PM
My pride and joy Squire Shop might be done for. During some post season testing with a new fuel tank, I hit some debris when I was coming around the end of the course that kicked up the rudder and it slammed into the rocky shoreline at 50+mph before I could get it shut down. It pretty much destroyed the left sponson on the 30 year old scratch built boat. It will take quite a bit to rebuild her so it's going on the shelf for awhile, I can hardly bare to look at it right now.  had picked up another hull, the U-2 Miss U.S. that I am working on getting going for next season, I finished the radio box today and now pretty much just have to design the fuel tanks for it now. I still have two electric scales ready for paint that will be keeping me busy over the winter as well.

I received a set of custom made ss nitro tanks made to fit the narrow hatch opening and angle of the nose. I had to go with saddle tanks to carry enough fuel and still fit in the hatch. The tanks have internal sumps and are pressurized by the tuned pipe. They are some really nice work.
