Very nice scale model considered this kit a while back but out of my reach funds wise when it comes to getting her on the water with the water jets ouch there expensive!

will have a trawl through the MASSIVE pile of mags i have and see if there is a review i can scan in for you.

I was at Graham Walkers a couple of weeks back. I know the Review is in next months MB. I also know Graham has built at least one other and the one he showed me in build is really very impressive (a BIG model). I 've not seen one on the water but I get the impression it would motor along in excess of scale speed with the jets at full thrust  :) :) :).

Apart from the Graupner Pegasus does anyone know of an available kit for a super yacht ?? I've seen some American Grand Banks style trawler yachts on the web but these are very expensive one offs.
It's an area of our hobby that seems less provided for than work boats or naval vessels.

One of my favorites is the ANTIPODEAN - Luxury Motoryacht by KMB

Some building info here in Dutch but the pics are quite helpful.

Yes Antipodean is a beautiful boat. Thanks for the link. I'd visited the KMB site a while back and was impressed, I'd forgotten they existed as when moving computers I didnt save my favourites.
Cant seem to access their price list from the site so am sending them my 15 Euro for catalogue.

Amati are to release a Grand banks http://www.amatimodel.com/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=35&Itemid=6

 And don't forget the Sunnseeker Mannhattan 74 also by Graupner. There is also a small germany company specializing in Princess / Fairline / Sunsseker, but they are pricey. http://www.marinetic.de

Just found this site about jet drives and other things, may be of some help.

My Model Boats arrived a couple of days ago, and the Moonraker review is indeed in it. A very impressive, if rather expensive, kit, and a good review.
