New RTR MTB / Patrol Boats

I received a tip about several new LARGE SCALE RTR patrol boats that will debut next month along with several new motor yachts at the Shanghai Model Expo. They'll be available in EP (dual 560) & GP versions.

1/7 PBR Mk1 Pibber 1.3x0.48m 52"x19-1/4"

1/18 Elco 80' PT-596 1.33x0.36m 53"x14-3/8"

I plan to be at the show & will update more info & photos then.

No jet drive - its single gas or dual 560 but I'll be sure to ask when I see them. That'd be a nice but expensive option.

I can't access YouTube thanks to China's current displeasure at something that was put up, but would guess it's one & the same. Is it a single gas drive like what I posted?

They already offer a 1/18 PT-109 if you like the older Elco version.

Looks like its time to dig out your GI Joe & 21 Century collections to man the decks.

1:7? Well maybe GI Joe will make a good crewman, but you might have to cut off his feet...

Same factory has started making 1/6 gas & electric RC tanks. Guess they want to corner the large scale market. Tank.wmv

Sounds like they've got a McCulloch chainsaw in that beast.
