Drag boat / Ski race boat

Post by GM-05 on Mon 30 Apr 2012, 4:53 pm

Hi all,
I have wonted to do a boat to go behind one of my still building models. I ended finding a old AMT drag race boat kit.. brand new....
The trailer will be longer and am adding another axle, filling all the trailer sides etc, 23in wheels.
At this stage it will go behind the caddy tow car, will change the wheels so they are all the same.... the centers will be the same blue. The paint ... i think i will go with blue/silver with flames....
Here are some pics





Thanks for looking
let me what you think ???

Gonna be wicked, i've done a couple of this type of thing and will do more, the boat thing is a nice break from cars, yet still related with the monster engine theme, looking forward to this one mate.

Na just hedging his bets I recon. If it all comes undone in the boat ...he has a free ride to hole in the ground (Undertakers charge a fortune) Very Happy

Great concept, would be a scary ride with that monster.
I built the same kit but runs a 50hp Mercury on the back!
I got a thing for boats, can't wait to see this one finished.

Looks the goods. Take a brave man or woman to ski behind that beast. Good work.

hi all,
this is starting to look how i wont.....still a lot of stuff to work out.
I have cut the rear part off the tranny to make it into a flywheel cover/engine mount, then it will have a tube going from the cover to the v-drive.



Thanks for looking
