    This thing is awesome. Delivery was, as is Amazon’s (unspoken) policy, sooner than anticipated. I decided to try a ship after crashing my model seaplane one too many times. I’m glad I picked this one. The boat, at 33″, is IM-pressive. I am starting it from the top down, superdetailing the wheelhouse with wood paneling, brass fittings, and a micro TV camera mounted to look ahead thru the front window. Instructions are well written, all parts are top quality. The formed styrene hull comes in two pieces which must be glued together, that would appear to be the most challenging step. It feels a teeny bit flimsy, but I think it’ll firm up a lot once it’s assembled with all the interior bracing, etc. I may invest in a little battery-powered bilge pump ‘just in case’. (I learned a lot from the seaplane. It turned into the world’s fastest submarine!) I got the Dumas running gear, there are several options out there for motor, speed control, and battery, I have not researched that fully. Anyway, I am looking at a winter project here. BTW, there is a pictorial essay online at […] with TONS of good building tips. Well worth viewing. Also, this is NOT a kid toy. This is a serious scale model ship. There are plenty of superfast speedboats out there, this isn’t one of them. Visualize an (very) old tug puttering along, “Bucketabolts, Bucketabolts, Bucketabolts” – it’s a lifestyle thing. You want fassst and durable – this isn’t for you.
