Aero-naut (3046) Pilot Boat - Radio Control Model Boat & Fittings is a non-scale model of a modern 20m Pilot Boat.

Boats of this general type are widely encountered along the Baltic and North Sea coasts. These vessels are very agile and fast, typically capable of 25 - 30 kn. Their task is to provide reliable, all-weather transport for pilots to the large ocean-going ships. The space aft of the command stand can accommodate several pilots, so that a single excursion can take all of them out to their “workplaces”. Our model very effectively incorporates the typical characteristics and handling of these boats.

The model is based on a modern planing hull, and is therefore very fast and agile. The hard-chine hull is of plastic construction. All the ABS parts are supplied laser-cut, and can be slotted together and glued immediately. The hull is assembled on a Depron jig. The power system consists of two electric motors which can either be controlled individually (2 x Multi 25 speed controller) or in common by a single Multi 40 controller. Two rudder systems are used for directional control.

A complete fittings set is provided for the wheelhouse. The etched parts for the instrument panel make it possible to illuminate many of the instruments. All the model’s lamps can be fitted with 3 mm LEDs. The two bow searchlights are very powerful, and in conjunction with the black rubbing strake give the model a distinctive appearance.

The searchlight is assembled from ready-made etched parts, and is fully articulated. The reflector and LED are carefully matched, and produce an exceptionally powerful, accurately focussed beam of light.

The model can be further expanded at the builder’s discretion, since plenty of space is available in the hull for additional working systems such as bow thruster, lighting or sound effects.

Scale: 1:25

Length 800mm
