I found that the driver from the Lindberg civil war cannon was just the right size.(1/16th scale) The boat may not be that scale but the figure looks right on it. Also I moved the antenna from in front of the seat to behind it and used one of the old(as in out of production)Deans whip type antennas.

Mini Airboat

I would call it approx. 1/16th too. It is electric, and runs pretty good, as long as there is only a light breeze. There is a battery pack, that has a larger AH rating, BUT be careful, as it must fit in the box below the seat. Do not bother trying different props, as several of us have, and have found that the one that it comes with, works the best. I have done paint detail work, removed the decals, and added another seat. It's beginning to look pretty scale. CaptCB
