People might like to know that the 'updates' to the 1960s British 'EeZeBilt' starter kits are still continuing. The latest offering is a Warsaw Pact OSA-1 Missile Boat - actually the export version that went to India in the 1970s. Specifically the INS NIPAT of Operation Trident fame.

Free plans, instructions and a rather abbreviated (I lost a lot of pictures) build log are available here: http://eezebilt.tk/OSA.html At 32" it's rather large for an EeZeBilt, but that makes it look more impressive.  It looks a bit complicated, but that's because I've added all the detail in the plans. The basic hull and superstructure are still EeZeBilt-simple.

It would be nice to see a 'Killer Squadron' of these gracing Indian lakes again...!

A lot more detail could be added, but the basic hull and superstructure is quite simple to make - there's just a little extra work making 4 missile housings.  A youngster could make one fairly easily, though probably not as a first boat without a bit of help.

I would have thought that this boat would be a favourite model in India, but there seem to be very few plans for these around at all. Perhaps this will redress the balance a bit. I would like to see a few out on the lake - they are quite a distinctive shape....

The plans are designed for you to print on a standard computer printer - A4 sized pages.   This boat is quite long, so there are a lot of parts which need 2 or 3 bits to be joined together. If I could be sure that people had bigger printers, I could make the number of pages smaller...

I hope I haven't got too many mistakes in the plan - but we will only find that out when people start making the boat!
