Here is a large-scale
Vosper RAF Rescue Luanch built by my father, Bernard Swan, who will turn
82 in June.
He served in the RAAF as a
radar operator at Bougainville during 1945.
He built the boat from a plan. The most interesting point concerns the
hull which is thick cardboard with numerous coats of paint and varnish.
I painted the deck and superstructure using Tamiya spray cans.
The big model is powered by an electric motor with 2-channel radio
I hope this is of some interest.
