If gajjar sir makes Smite duplicates, then i will have to go to Lucknow, hunt through my junk and retrieve my model airboat (like they run in the Everglades).

Exactly what I was talking about a few minutes ago. Call disconnected - Guwahati is the ONLY city in the world where cellphone calls end abruptly once there is a power failure/load shedding. My UPS is about to collapse. I want a SMITE plan. Someone please help.

Cheers!

@Iyer
I remember the air-tricycle that you had made in 1987 while we were in living in Ameerpet, Hyd. The tricycle was powered by a Cox engine and Baba's He-man was the passenger. The model air boat you must have made after I had left.

First time I have put my hand into fomeee. Smite looks sexy in it. Spent half day on it and was able to make only structure. I thought to complete it before Monday but any way will have to give 2-3 hrs tomorrow to set rc into it.

Iyersaab,vc sir and ashokji this model is dedicated to all enthusiastic those how are associated with boat making and rc hobby before my birth. So always at your service. Let me know how can I help you???

I did not noticed that the kit which I have is almost made in 1973.

Great build. I am tempted to build one but with two Smites already in my workshop I have to hold myself back. First need to restore them back to health. Do you plan to strengthen the underside by a layer of fibre glass as the foam could tear off if the boat hits some undergrowth in the pond?

Paint it with 2 part epoxy like Araldite (VERY STRONG) or with Wembleys Quickfix + Thinner (STRONG).

Hi,

I am going to apply glass fiber cloth on bottom with clear coat. I think this set up is enough to give strength.!!!
