Mrp electric opc tunnel hull

I had a gift boat by kit in box..Firstly I opened box and met a big surprize.The boat was not a toy as I hoped . It was very impressive a real rc boat also its own age about 23 years old ( the nostaljik one...)
I removed hull and reconstructed it and modified some ones ( building , esc , placed some electronics ). After then repaint to dark yellow plus applied decals that some ones original , some ones different...Finally I very love it...
Original outboard motor and canopy had a minor defects and I repaired . Also flexible shaft oftenly loosened but , I reoil and corrected defects . Result the boat and outboard motor respectable running on swimming pool and enough speed with stok motor. Rx and XL-5 esc from Traxxas , servo DS821 from JR and I used 2 + 2 cell lipo ( 14.4volt ) ...XL-5 no burned still I sharing some photos but I couldn't upload short video...

My, I am really feeling my age now that plastic boats are vintage. But the decals are spectacular... About how long is it?

Hull only 22,5" ( 57cm) , nose to outboard motor 27" (69cm )... Original decals also 23 years old but they was perfect conditions , because stayed inbox. The only issue lack of some decals ( as mercury...) . So I added Hangar 9 decals instead of them and applied matt dop..

Sweet boat. Would love to see her run if you can get the video to work.
Great job fixing her up. I hope you enjoy her a lot. Well done.

That is a very cool running boat. Great job getting her going. Is that pool at a hotel? It sure is a nice one.

Our apart building has a big pool also we entered after summer season and usually
doesn't swim anybody ( safe area )...So began my boat season I also modified traxxas villain ex and tested firstly in this pool but very very fast boat over shooted two times toward to out of pool , so I tried tests on the sea and result more satisfactory..
But after met to mrp tunnel boat , I forget my traxxas villain ex and nitro thundercat.31 since one month.Because improvement working on wintage boat very impressed me. Still , I very love this boat because I spent to many time for repair , modifications , painting and.....other actions. I'm rc scale aircraft modeler and I new begin boat modelling.
