flower class corvette r/c conversion

this is a 1/72 revell flower class corvette that has been converted to radio control. has titan 550 motor, brand new dynamite esc, futaba rudder servo. i bought the boat from a rcgroups member new in the box and i have started the build and conversion. there are alot of parts to finish on this kit that i have still in the box. or you could just run the boat the way it is and ad the detail a little at a time. you will need your own radio and batt, the hull needs to be ballest when you get your batt and reciver installed. lots of room inside the hull for sound lights and smoke system if you wanted. i have added some weathering efect to the hull, wheel house,stack. all decal have been cleared over flat coat.

150.00 not includeing shipping.

hull is 34 inches long by 7 inches wide




lots of video on youtube for these boats.



shipping is going to be alot of money so if your willing to pay and dont care about the small parts being broken i will ship it. u.s shipping only

If we were a little closer I would drive down to get it . I dont guess you are coming up toward Gulf shores in the next couple of weekends. LOL. Shipping would not be good for this ship.

Hi,
FYI: You may want to consider alternative shipping methods. I did a check and for me to ship it to you ( I live in Illinois) to St. Petersburg Florida, going by Fed Ex it is $27.11 Considerably cheaper than USPS. It would probably be even less expensive for SpongJim as I live a damn sight farther away than he does.

Take it for what it is worth.
Pete

hey jim, i would pack it myself and would have to take the mast down for sure and build some type of balsa blocks to keep it from rolling or falling while upside down in the box. or use the foam but im almost positive the small raillings will brake. but there are extra in the kit. i have also started to ballest the boat to run it this sunday at the local lake so its a little heavy now.

thanks...mike

Maverick,

No problem, good luck with your sale! I saw it on RCU a bit back and ogled it then.

regards,
Pete
