Rc Perkasa torpedo boat ,Hooben,1/32 scale

Greeting...
After six months working on the Hooben perkasa torpedo boat kit 1/32 scale I finshed it befor few days ago.I orderd it from www.vosper-perkasa.com and just few days after I got the package. With first looking to the kit I realized its need too much work and time to get perfect result. I get too much help from Christopher the man how working in www.vosper-perkasa.com he is very nice person he gave me very useful information to build this boat. The six months it really long time but its enough time to get boat with good details especially I remade many parts in this kit because the standard one either poor details or damage plastic or too thin photo etch but generally the main parts in this kit such as the boat hull ,cabin and the engine room is very good. I used Tamiya putty and Perfect plastic putty the bothe was very important to correct some of parts. And I reinforce the joining places in the hull from inside and out side I used Stabilit Express its very good german glue and I used it in another important parts in this boat

Greetings and many thanks for the pictures! Lots of pictures is never too much, so feel free to share more. It is good to see the instructions and what the kit looks like in the box too.

I have heard of this kit but have not found the best info on it so your thread here is welcome. Good to know the kit is not entirely perfect and to see the changes you made to make it better. I also like to see three motors and three screws like the original boat.

I am watching this thread...

You finish the boat to a very high standard--she looks excellent. I am a big fan of patrol boats too; a great mixture of scale details and speed, the best of both worlds. Is this your first model boat?

Nice operating features too. Watch out, the super-bright LEDs on the instruments and in the cockpit will blind the crew at night. Those are best for spotlights only.

Hi Harquebus
Yes this is was my first build Project but I have RTR tugboat Southampton and befor that I was interested by RC tanks I have 6 RC tanks and may be in the future I will interesting with RC Helikopter. But Im sure my next Project will be one of the Deans Marine Model or even Arkmodl(Hooben) they have another nice model boats.

Wow!!!! This is awesome. The video you have posted is great. The details you have added really make this one great build. What transmitter are you using. I think we also need to see this on the water

Nice build. I believe that kit was originally meant for Deans Marine back in the day when they contacted Ark to do a kit.
