Scale shovel nose Hydro


A project I have been on for a while now and near completion.
A 1/16th scale Shovel nose hydro of the 60s A Gary Findley design at 24 in[600mm] lenght.
All blasa and fiberglass constuction, with the odd bit of .8mm ply where needed.
The driver and Alison engine I got from Doug at ..classichydros.com in the USA
The upper deck I shaped from blue foam and glass.
Power is from a Turnigy 3900 kv water cooled motor mounted on a home made T3 ali frame with a 60 amp water cooled ESC
The flex drive and strut I made, and fitted a x430 octura metal prop.
Rudder system is a HK product with the water cooling pickup in the bottom.
So far wt is 1.5 lbs.
Finished paint will be Cream and orange ,same as the full size of that day.
1963 Tahoe Miss U-3
