Fantastic Sir!
Love all the extra details like, padded seats, combing, lower rub rails, internal planking + cut outs and unique engine box

Did you take any build photo's or just knocked this up over the Weekend ?

SLIM- Nice job on both boats. Really good finishes. Are the boats set up for R/C or are they static models? How many coats of polyurethane are on the models?
