Tamiya PT-15 Japan torpedo boat RC conversion
« on: May 19, 2015, 07:03:56 PM »

After about 5 years of not so intense building I have finally completed my RC conversion of the Tamiya PT-815 Japan torpedo boat. I have kept a build log at my own homepage here: http://iloapp.moller-ilsoe.dk/blog/heliblog?Home&category=11, where you can read all about this build and why it took me so long.

Here are a few pictures:

That is a work of beauty! I remember seeing the model in old Tamiya catalogues when they were the company of choice for advanced models, and the new catalogue was young teenage bedtime reading:OD
