Interceptor 42
« on: February 02, 2013, 07:44:55 PM »

Hello All,
Started my second boat build in Oct last year of the Interceptor 42 from Models by Design,
Power is, 2 x 600Kv brushless outrunners, 2 x 100A ESC's, battery is a 12v 9A SLA but this may be replaced by 2 x 4s LiPo's at a later date, i will see when i can get to give it a test run...hopefully soon!!
Question, what paint finish does this type of boat have, Gloss or Satin/Eggshell ?
like i said this is only my second boat build so comments and criticism's will be greatly appreciated, the following photo's show where i am at with the build, more will follow as i progress,
Thanks for looking.

all gloss, apart from the none slip deck.
 
you can see the shine on these two....the new 48 foot intercepter, in consort with one of the older 42 footers.

took my interceptor for a test run yesterday, - i now  have 2x  800kv brushless motors and after messing around with about 5 different sets of props i am fairly happy with duration of run and also turn of speed....
 
 will try and get  some static pictures up and maybe some video of the next run at the lake...
 
its an awesome model , very stable and for a 42 inch model its no slowcoach either...

Thanks Dan,
I am possibly going to make it more like a Harbour Master/Patrol boat, it will have a Police style light bar fitted, i have made the platform this week. Light bar is from, rcpolicelightbars.com

A bit more done to the cabin area, radar platform and mast made, I copied the size of the mast but made it with 8 & 6mm brass tube so the led wiring is hidden, when painted the radar motor will be added and the led's will have coloured diffusers fitted.

Guy,
My idea is 3mm LED's into the lamp housing, bend the legs 90 deg, then fit on to the board, drill 2 x 0.5mm holes in the cabin sides for the LED legs, then fit to the cabin, at least thats the theory!!

Thats what I have done to the Happy Hunter on the front mast and the Port/Stbd lights and it works a treat.

Sorry its been a while since my last post, but i have had chance to prep everything for painting,
as you will see the model is well erm.....Orange!!
most of the fittings are in Black so when they are fitted it should "tone" things down a bit, over the next few weeks i should be able to start fitting the model out.
