The Carol Runs!

Posted by rcb67 on November 20, 2008

Well here’s what you get for 5 1/2 months of work. Something that not only works but also looks good. Another great thing about building your own boats is that its high quality. Everyone knows that the chinese seem to be producing low quality products these days. While these boat are very far from the ready to runs that you buy at Target, they’re much better. While yes you do have to invest much more money both initially and over time you end up something that’s much better quality than anything you can buy ready made. Overall this model cost over $250 when everything was said and done. Over half of that though is the radio equipment. I probably spent $150 for what I needed to get the boat to run. The kit alone costs $60 (at least where I got it) and then you still need to buy tools, paint, glue, and radio equipment (if you want an RC). After building this my opinion is DO NOT try this as a first model unless you are an adult or have a lot of time and patience. As I mentioned it took almost half a year to build and some of it was very involved. For example to make the railings that are on top of the cabin you need to first cut some brass dowels into over 40 pieces of multiple sizes. Then you had to tape each piece to a paper template after you glued on little pieces of wood to keep the brass from actually touching the paper. After that you have to solder every piece together into three seperate pieces which you will later attach to make the railings. Then you have to bend the brass to shape and cut off the top of every piece. Finally you had to drill over 30 individual holes for each vertical piece. However as I said, if you have the patience its definitely worth it. The results are shown below. The other boat you see running is my friend’s converted plastic Revell Flower-Class Corevette.
