Ahoy there-

If you are going to R/C that monster, which way are you going-gas or electric? I'd love to see her on a pond on the step! My 3 1/32 scale R/C PT are toys compared to that big MAMA!

You could stay busy just detailing one of these monsters. My models are at the Exhibit in Springfield, but they will be coming home, and I am running out of room. Good News though, my youngest is moving out January 1st and moving in with his Girlfriend. Guess who has dibbs on that room...........

Hello Frank.....and Frank....lol. The plan was to use twin Zenoah 26 cc engines, either in an inline configuration where the engines are attached to each other by crankshafts, or in a twin side by side running separate props.

Either way I'm not sure how scale I can get with the drive systems without spending a lot of money, so I'm thinking about it. Originally I thought about triple engines and triple drives, but talking to others convinced me it was really overkill power-wise.

Anyone interested in these boats can contact me....for now the guy who builds them is still building. He told me he is near completion on two more.

Happy Holidays to everyone!
