thanks! the model is a 1:9 scale version of the full size raceboat.. the hull was produced from scratch by Kitten @ BananaShark Racing (not bad for an 'unskilled' awesome bloke), and i made the 'racedeck' cockpit and scoop for the vented steps. You can buy a barehull with standard deck from Nimriff models in plymouth for £120.. then all you need is a ThunderTiger outboard (like gold dust to get hold of), some radio gear, fuel tank, fuel filter, fuel pipe, step venting pipes, sealed radio box, bowtank, modified speed rails on the hull, adjustable steering servo mounting (to allow for engine trim), engine mounting plates, and lots of hours tinkering to get a similar BananaShark to the one in the photo.
Sounds a lot, but once its howling up and down its suddenly worth it! go to www.bananasharkracing.com
and click on the model link to see more info and photossss.
in addition, a friendly kevin is always useful to have when building the model bananasharks- they dont come with instructions!
