Static Blasa Wood Tall ship conversion to RC

Hi all,

I just recently purchased a static balsa wood tall ship model from an opt shop and was wondering if it would be possible to convert it to a RC model. I have successfully build around 5 static models ranging in sizes.

The model is fairly old but was purchased rather cheaply. I believe it is a model of a brig but i could be mistaken. From the pictures provided i was wondering if anyone had any idea/suggestion on a possible method of converting it or better yet a link to a website/shop that sells wooden rc tall ship kits.

any help would be awesome

Anything is doable depending on how much sawing/cutting/modifying you want to do.

I'd recommend spending some time / posting in the Scale Sail forum where you'll find plenty info & advice.
