The Graupner Phantom is a fine beginners speed boat.
It comes as an ARR (almost ready to run) with the boat pre-made, and the motor and propeller pre-fitted.
All you have to do is place the radio gear into the pre-made spaces, and stick it down. Oh  yes ... and charge the battery!
The hull is fantastic, very stable, and the sub-surface drive makes it handle turns with ease.

SEE IT GO AND MAKE UP YOUR OWN MIND
Comes with or without the radio, battery, charger to suit your needs, and use up gear you have from other models.
HINT: Like many electric speedboats the Phantom goes very fast in reverse, fast enough to take water over the stern, and that's not good for the electronics!
So always tape the removable deck on with some insulating tape, so as to seal any tiny gaps before going out on the water, and go slow in reverse!
To be honest real (fullsize) speedboats are not designed for reverse drive, even though they can, they are unsafe while doing this.

GN2105 Jet Sprint jet speed boat kit

In Australia and New Zealand hotly contested races are held for these small high-speed jet-boats.
The full-size machines are powered by 8-cylinder engines rated at around 1000 BHP combined with a propulsion unit.
The races are run against the clock over a staked-out course consisting of narrow channels. The boats are capable of top speeds of around 145 km/hr, and acceleration from 0 to 140 km/hr takes 3

Description
With the standard SPEED 600 RACE 7.2 V electric motor and two low-cost 4-cell batteries this 
boat is capable of speeds up to about 23 km/hr.
n its standard form the jet-boat operates without a servo-operated reversing flap on the Mini-Hydro-Jet
propulsion unit, which means that a low-cost 2-channel
radio control system can be used. The experienced modeller may prefer to fit a 3-channel RC system so that the reversing flap on the jet unit can be controlled to provide reverse running. This is optional however.

Period Scale Sailing Ship Models

We all know them…Cutty Sark, HMS Bounty, HMS Victory, Captain Cook's Endeavour, Columbus' Santa Maria, Nina and Pinta, the Mayflower, Spanish galleons, Greek galleys and Viking longships from history, stories and films. These sailing ships are familiar to all.

In 1998 we had the tall ships in Ireland, schooners, brigantines, barques, our own Asgard among them, many are now naval training vessels and still sailing the seas of the world.

Here they are for you to build in all their glorious detail. They are the only non-working models we sell, but it doesn’t matter, they're so special. The world's best kits seem to be German Italian and Spanish so we have Panart, Mamoli, Mantua, Corel , Aero-Naut and Aviomodel models. We try to pick the best of each maker.
