That’s right, you read the headline right. This is an jaw dropping model by clearly one of the top speed boat model makers on planet earth. Oh, sure I bet there is someone on Jupiter that may do a version of THUNDERBIRD like this. But just try and see that one. We are working on a story on Jupiters Woody Boater community BTW. Its so much better than Plutos by the way. And well, Uranus’s group are a bunch of.. well. you know..
Anyway, back to this model by Greg Rice. We met Greg up at the huge Woods And Water event. I will add that even these photos don’t do this boat justice. Even the wood grain is to scale. WHAT THE HECK! Does he grow little trees?
Does he use 5.200 on the bottom? OK, enough joking around. These models transcend the term Model and are works of art. Now, we could go into detail of how this was built, but there are 46 pages, yes 46 pages on the RC forum on the build. Good luck with the rest of your day. And forget what ever you think of yourself as a model maker. Its fair to say, you may need to move to another planet.
You can visit the RC forum link here. 46 pages. With youtube video in the water and all.
WAIT THERE’S MORE – Get ready to smash those eye balls against your glasses. Meet Gregs LOCKPAT II.
And of course we shot this epic 30 second video.
And of course there is a massive thread on the RC model Forum on Lockpat II as well. Sorry. Its dinner time now!
