third boat is sold under Robbe's label called Sirius RS 32, which in fact manufactured in Shanghai, China, and we call it 880. The 880 also has been updated with a new carbon mast, 1400mm in height than the original 1250 aluminium one. paneled sails are my handwork.
Do I make it clear?
Triplane
Curious as to what painting process are you using? Rattle cans, airbrush? The finish is terrific.

Boomer,
I use both spray cans and airbrush...(as am also a scale modeler)
graphics on the hull are mostly done by stenciling w/airbrush, while country codes and sail numbers are written free hand. my airbrush is an American made Aztec A 4709 from Testor, durable and accurate, easy to maintian. I have palyed with it for over ten years now.

These pictures were taken this last weekend near Millbrook, Alabama by a contemporary of mine, an avid RC boating legend and the well known originator of the long standing, and on going "Offical Nirvana Thread" on this forum, Capt. Crash (Rob)

I think these pictures provide us with a good illustration of why we do this. Thanks Rob for the terrific pictures.

Just shot these pictures today. Yamaha Round the World and a Victoria. When you expand the pictures - notice that there are bubbles coming out of the water that is pushing around the bow of both boats. Not sure what that is about, but it is very cool.
Enjoy

Took a few pictures of my newest Nirvana ll - Maiden voyage - sea trial to get the boat trimmed properly. Winds were a bit light that day, so more testing will be required.

This is my 4th Nirvana ll. Not sure why I sold the others? I seem to end up getting another one. Fun boat to sail.

Great boat for the money, just about anyone can sail one, and they make a fun class race boat.

Added one picture of my Yamaha RTW "wing on wing" I am fond of.
