Love the Jules Verne - looks like you changed a couple things from the kit?

Hello Robster94gt,
Yes you are correct, I did change a few thing on my Jules Verne. Like the railing, and I did not include the tender boat.
I took this decision because the rails werenít coming so good, and the tender boat was too large, it left hardly any deck space.
I tell you itís a very good model, and I enjoyed building it.

Nice Job. Looks like an awesome boat. Someday I'd like to tackle something like that.

Hi Martin
The Sea Queen Belonged to my Dad who is now 70 years old. He made it when he was 20. So as you can see its 50 years old.
6 yeas ago my dad gave it to me, and I re-conditioned it.
I installed a new OS engine and new R/C electronics.
It is a very good boat. You can now purchase a reproduction of the see queen from JOTIKA UK. This company bought all the AEROKIT'S plans and is now producing one by one these superb vintage boats.
