Remote Control Boat

Yes — you will impress your friends when you emerge from the shop on that sunny Saturday with this boat under your arm. The local pond awaits your wizardry.

Creating a scale model is a magical endeavour. Regardless of whether it’s a hot rod, the wolf man, or the boat you see here. That magic sparkles to life when you add a motor into the mix. A motor that’s run and guided by a remote control no less. But, building a boat is a lot like piloting a boat, out on the water there’s very little in the way of direction — it’s a free-flowing affair that takes a bit of time getting used to. Likewise, there’s not a lot of measuring on this project. You’re going to exercise some ‘fit and feel’ skills while making this vessel. Not to worry though, there’s a full complement of patterns that get you headed in the right direction if you choose to take on this project. If you’re new to boat or model building, you’ll get some good exercise here. Calling this boat a toy is a bit of an understatement. It pays homage to vintage versions of the Cris-Craft style of boats.
