CB90 RTR
« on: August 20, 2018, 08:41:08 AM »

If you like me think the Swedish designed and built combat boat 90 is a cool boat, then this is good news.

Sold to many places on the globe and probably built on license this model should appeal to many customers. Here in Sweden you see them as combat boats of course but also as police, ambulance and SAR boats.
Don't understand why they don't have reversing buckets on the jets though?

The model is listed as 22 inches, and Wikipedia lists the full size boat as 52 feet. That makes the model around 1:28 scale.

I have the PBR which is 21''  1/18 scale  granted buckets would be good they are available.   I found not needed so far as it will turn on the spot, and about 5mph faster the than the Riverine


RED  JohnV had a swift  for sale

cant see a swift on  that link jaymac?


I had twin brushless in that PCF, it was direct drive the shafts going straight into the out runners, sold it to fund other projects, I have a feeling the buyer was emigrating to America and wanted to take it with him.
