scratch built model for new LEGEND MODEL BOAT KIT

I know that a lot of customers are waiting for the first in our new kit releases, the outboard SKI Boat “Swish Blade’, but I do not want anyone think that we are spending idle time while we package our first kits for shipping.

We are always working more than one new kit at any given time, and thus the next two kits in the lineup for release are already in the works before we ship out the first release.

We have just completed our scratch build model of the Lyman 16 1/2’ OUTBOARD to prove out our CAD lines and plans before moving on to producing a laser cut and built model for kit production. We will always follow this procedure when we are producing a lap strake hull to make sure of the lofting of the planks is true.

At the same time we are getting ready to move on the second stage for the Lyman kit we are starting the first stage of the HIGGINS “MAGNUM 18” mahogany speed boat which will be the second release before the Lyman OUTBOARD.

So to prove that the Lyman OUT BOARD is coming sometime around summer, I am posting the scratch build of the Lyman 16 1/2’ OUTBOARD for your enjoyment.

Hey Bob and John (deepwater), I saw this boat up and close last night at our club meeting for Garden State Model Boaters. Let me be the first to tell you Legend Model Boats hit it out of the park again. Rich did a tremendous job on the scratch build of her. It is award winning for sure. I don’t know where he finds enough time in the day to run a company and develop premium kits for our hobby. Standing ovation needed for this one. Congratulations Rich on another nautical gem.

It looks great with the motor. The EP1 and Octura prop provide decent power to the model?

SSG.PERKINS- Since the motor and the prop size are the same as the LYMAN 25' SOFT TOP SLEEPER kit it should give that same amount of power and speed with this model, or even better since the prop thrust is straight back on the outboard motor.

This one is going on my shelf when it comes out. Also, the Magnum.

I like it!!!!

My dads friend had a lap strake hulled boat that we took a ride on when I was a kid. I wish I could find out what model/make it was.
