Hello, I am new to the world of RC Boats , However I have built full size boats as well as scale models. I primarily would like to start by getting information regarding the America’s Cup Boats, then find plans to build one . And do a build log . I have browsed the site as a guest and thought to join in
if you are interested about America Cup modern boats, you may start with this tread : http://www.rcsailing.net/forum1/showthread.php?6472-Nzl-20/page8&highlight=zealand.
Several free plans are also downlodable here : http://www.nonsolovele.com/2013Plans.shtml and here : http://www.renatoc.it/Modellismo/PagineUtili/Piani-Costruzione/piani.html
For ancient plans you should search in this forum under : “JClass” .
Thank you ClaudioD, I Greatly appreciate the links ,at this stage I am thinking about Building USA-98 BMW ORACLE
I wanted to share that I am also a member of Model Ship world with the same user name and avatar ( Herreshoff 12 1/2 )and as a big fan of the America’s Cup I am currently building 3 cup Boats KA-6 , US-55 & US-23 in a 3/16" = 1’ - 0 " scale . I am looking forward to bridging the gap between full size builds and Scale model builds by building RC Sailboats,here is a photo of my hull only build of KA-6 ( The Boxing Kangaroo )
I’m a novice in the hobby, just a few posts, but I have to say, Beautiful Job…
Thank you HSteve, I am a novice to RC as well ,(but, no stranger to boat building) I am excited about building my first RC boat
