What ...............all by yourself ?


Seriously there are many companies which deal in all types and styles of Model Craft and most of the Reville model boat kits can be converted to Radio Control
so depends how much you want to spend and what scale you want to start at ....for instance mine are 1/96 HMS MANXMAN / HMS TROUBRIDGE / HMS VICTORIOUS ............and my Reville kit was a Flower Class Corvette [ most of which were built in Canada in the last war]

If its your first Model boat I would recommend that kit as it was fairly straight forward to build easy to convert to Radio control , and the rudder / propeller modifications were not to expensive , and being a plastic kit easy to repair till you get used to model making criteria and you can make it into which ever RCN ship you chose .



Once you find your feet progress to what ever takes your fancy

Should you need any further help or fancy another type ...send a PM to CGRET or Monty who has a wealth of knowledge on Canadian vessels who may be able to advise you on a choice

If you want a larger size then have a look at DEANS MARINE Models [ one of many on the internet ] but here you are looking at a lot more money and a lot more construction time

Hope that helps you

Isn't that what the current government claims it's going to do?

Sorry - couldn't resist it!

Cheers!
