Large 36 inch Police Launch Model Boat Kit (A Phil Smith design)
Thames Police Launch 36 Kit NOW AVAILABLE. Introducing the 36 large scale Thames Police Launch c. The original design for this model was based on the Metropolitan Police Thames Division River Police Launch constructed at Teddington by Toughs Boatyard in the late 1940s/1950s period. Ace designer Phil Smith introduced the popular smaller 26 version for Veron in 1951/1952. It utilised mixed balsa and ply construction (a combination of both strength and lightness gained through Phils model aircraft design experience). This new 36 (940mm) kit follows that tradition. With Colin Smith (Phils Son) has enlarged the original model to the increased length of 36 (1:10 scale). This larger version has been built and tested by independent modellers and has proven to be more realistic, particularly on the water and has a lively performance when fitted with the recommended brushless motor. The models lighter weight and length is a particular advantage for transport to the water by senior modellers. The construction of the 36 version remains the same as the original Veron kit with some modifications. All of the balsa and ply sheet parts and deck and skins are computer laser cut for accuracy and etched deck lines for added realism, obechi stripwood, balsa block and cabin window material are included. There is a full-sized two-sheet detailed plan and instructions and white metal deck fittings.
