INFORMATION WANTED ON NHP90 FROM LEICESTER MODEL SHOP
« on: May 27, 2019, 05:38:49 PM »

Just saw a very nice model sailed by a visitor to the Rawdon open day.  It reminded me of a hull / semi kit which I remember the Leicester model shop selling in the 1970<s.  Can anyone remember this model? Or point me at any more info or a picture?
Cheers

I remember it well, 40" x 12", used possibly 'Falcon' motors, which were decent mid-power motors, plus ex-Ripmax 3 blade props, only available in one hand. Also had an Oto Melara 76mm gun on the fore deck....may have been a made up design, not too sure.
That's all I have though....

Thank you.  Nice to have my memory vindicated.  Maybe someone can produce a picture, I seem to remember it featuring in a Model Boats advert in the 70's
Cheers  Jim :-))

It was NHP 47. There was one in my boat club which was always a crowd pleaser complete with a Harrier on the flight deck.
