Alex multi-purpose boat
Multi-task vessel: working and research boat
The ALEX is a non-scale model of a modern 14 m multi-task boat.
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.
The A-mast towards the stern can also be servo-operated. The towing mechanism is rugged enough to tow other boats.
The wheelhouse is assembled completely from mahogany components. The etched instrument panel components make it possible to illuminate the large number of instruments. All the model's lamps can be lit using 3 mm LEDs.
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, sound effects or winches.
The model kit contains:
All laser-cut ABS parts required to build the model, Depron jig, fittings and propeller shafts, motor mounts and rudders.
The extensive set of etched nickel-silver components contains more than a hundred parts, including railing stanchions, searchlight, working door hinges, panel instruments, ventilator panels and much more.
Weight 2,4-3,0kg, ready to drive with RC, depending on the configuration.
