HI all
        First time on the forum. I am looking for a winter project, something coastal forces. I have seen Powered Boat Mouldings advertised in model boats along time ago. Are they still trading?  Has anybody built one of there kits ??

Regards Eric.

Powered Boat Mouldings has an excellent range of kits I have found them very good. No connection just a satisfied customer.

Hi Eric,
It was fittings and figures and I found the quality quite good and the service excellent overall. I would recommend them to anyone. Several friends of mine has had their hulls as well and from what I have seen these are very good.

Good Luck
Daryl

ERIC,

A 78 footer you will need a big car to tow it around, and some of the lakes may be a bit small.. ;D ;D

im building a pt (mtb) from plans out of foam covering with glass before removing the foam core apart from the forward bow section which ill leave in for floatation.i got the plans off a guy on here called simon theyre drawings of the full size vosper boats.check out my thread on the build section and check simons build out on the rttl 1/2. he has  done a great job on his.why dont you have a go at scratch building one? then buy all the fittings from hsl mouldings?.mines 1/24 scale and they sell all the bits to fit.
