gas powered 1/8 scales

Recommended Posts

Built these two with gas engines, Bud was an 1/8th scale twin wing and ran it back when we only had the 23 peanut and it was a fun boat (too nice to race with others) The pay and pack was my own design hydro with a stand off scale cowl( boat set the GX two lap record) Both boats were all wood

beautiful boats, especially that bud T4.  

fitting a scale looking cowl over the gas engine is difficult.       

your cowls look perfect.  thank you for posting pictures 


I've built several gas powered semi-scale play boats using newton plans. 

some with deck mounted pipes.

three examples below
