Hi Chris

At a guess I would say that it is a small cabin cruiser or day fishing boat, the outline of the windows on the cabin suggest a scale that can only be a small boat and the hull is a planing type with spray rails which suggests a fair turn of speed.

Hi Chris

I believe that you are right as the hull and cabin do look just like the FCB 2, which is a new lifeboat variant on me. This should be a great model to complete especially if you manage to incorporate the jet drives.

I hope that you will continue to list photos as you do the build.

All the best

Paul

Make your own contribution to the Website

We welcome well written contributions from Website members on almost any aspect of Model Boating with a particular emphasis on practical hints, tips, experience and builds.

In order to maintain a consistent standard and format, all suggestions should first be sent to me by Personal Message for approval in principle. Only a very limited amount of time is available for editing contributions into a suitable format for placing on the website so it is important that the material is well presented, lucid and free from obvious spelling errors. I think it goes without saying that contributions should be illustrated by appropriate photos. I shall be happy to give advice on this.

The Member Contribution area offers space for short informative mini articles which would not normally find a place in Model Boats magazine. It is an opportunity for Website Members to freely share their  expertise and experience but I am afraid that virtue is its own reward as there is no budget to offer more material recompense!

I look forward to receiving your suggestions.
