Hi Mick
It could be a sea queen or a sea commander both models came in 3ft and 4ft kits, the 42in lenght is a little strange though could you post a couple of photos on the gallery so that we could all have a look, then it will soon be identified.
I would use electric to drive it as a lot of clubs dont like or have banned IC.

The sea Commander only came in 34" and the sea Queen only came in 46" only the fire tender came in 34" or 46".

Hello Mick
This is a mystery and I wonder exactly what model you do have, it would be very helpful to see some photos or if you bought it off e bay then the listing number so that we can all have a look.
Once identified it should be no problem to locate some plans so that you can finish it off.
As for engines I agree with Tomo and would advise that you fit electric, again once we know what the model is we will be able to advise which motor/battery combo would be best.

Hi Mick
I am not at all sure what this model is, in some respects it looks like a copy of an early chris craft constellation especially if the hatch on the foredeck if scaled from full size.
But then again I am probably miles off.

i have posted a couple of pictures of the boat on the site one of the
lads thinks it might be a chris craft boat this model is about 10 years
old or older if that helps anybody it least its different and new
poser for the lads on the site thanks again mick

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.
