Re: Torpedo X 0.16

Good point Bill,
I was thinking about this as well.
There would be a lot of smaller parts I could start off with.
Roberta's instructions are second to none, if I go through them I can probably identify them.

Thanks for the tip,

Cheers Marco

Re: Torpedo X 0.16

That would be awesome if you could visit us, I will need a lot of your expertise.
But we need to build a house with a large garage first. The current one is too small. :(
However, there are quite a few Aussies that are about to finish or have completed their boats.

Re: Torpedo X 0.16

Thanks Gayle,

Looking forward to build the real one!
It may take another year and a half until I'm ready to start with it.
But once I'm retired, I should have plenty of time :P :roll:

Cheers

Re: Torpedo X 0.16

Glad you like it,
It sounds like a V8 of a 69 Charger.

Re: Torpedo X 0.16

Hi Roberta, Your 0.16 built looks great, I'm sure it turns out as good as your full scale Torpedo. Today I launched my 0.10 scale Torpedo. It is a bit on the heavy side. I added an engine sound system and now the waterline is a bit above indicated on Glen L's plans. However it planed out without a p...

Re: New member from Sydney Australia

Hi Roberta, thanks for your encouragement, I will be starting with the full scale built in about a year when I'm retired. I built the model with the larger cockpit to see if I can get one seat and a bench in it. However, I may change my mind and build a 2-seater like yours. The larger bow looks quit...

New member from Sydney Australia

Hi I'm Marco from Sydney Australia. I've been following this forum for a while in order to find a suitable boat design for my retirement project. It will be still another year until I start building my boat. I have settled on the the Torpedo after seeing Roberta's boat. It is an absolute gem, congra...
