DV512 RC Shipyard
VOSPER MTB 379
Affectionately known as the Royal Navy's "Little Ships", the Motor Torpedo Boats of the Coastal Forcesserved with distinction throughout the Second World War. The Vosper Type II 73' boats entered service in 1943, and armed with 18" torpedoes, a QF 6-ponder gun, a 20mm Oerlikon cannon and two .303 machine guns the squadrons headed out to raid the enemy coast and hunt shipping and submarines in the North Sea and English Channel. Many continued in service until 1947. Model boat designer and builder Barrie Griffi n has drawn plans for an attractive RC scale model of these charismatic little warships, and in this fascinating DVD he uses the pack of laser-cut parts available from Traplet Publications Ltd to build, fi t out and sail one of them. With a menu structure that allows you to get quickly to the part of the build sequence that you need, Barrie will cover:
• Building and waterproofing the hull & superstructure
• Installing rudders and propellers
• Choosing and installing motors, servos, batteries & speed controllers
• Detailing, painting & finishing
• On the water
Very fast and highly maneuverable, here's the ideal model warship for
beginners and experts alike - and a squadron of them running together at
high speed would be an impressive sight!
