 :-)You are absolutely  right.  I just had limited time to get the word out on the release of the kit and had just finished with the entire build on RC Groups, so it was easiest just to post the web site address rather than repost the same thing here on this forum. 

We will be having a club run soon and I will be taking a lot more pictures so there will be some new pictures being posted.

The boat looks so good
some lovely fine detail ,only spoilt by the areoquipe pipe on the back.
this would be much better if this was taken away.

the finnish of the boat is brilliant, a very nice boat.

But definitely get rid of that big ugly tube

 Phillnjack- The braded line in the back of the hull is covering the water line from the water pick up which feeds the cooling water to the electronic speed control and the water cooled motor.  This is the exact way that they do it on the full scale Cracker Boxes.  :-))

No way at all is that right.

Go look at the pics again, for this to be right the size hose on full size boat would be 6 inch diameter tube.

Just to prove a point, her is a few original full size cracker box boats from the transom, and the model below.

now look at the back of the model Below, its nothing like the real thing, even the sides of the transom are different.
The tabs are not full width, and if we are talking scale the trim tabs and struts look absolutely ridiculas,especially considering the
price of kit and how much work had gone into building the rest of the boat.
I think the tabs and pipe need to be left off or made to look scale.
