A freelance lug rigged cabin cruiser just 12" long!
designed by Graham McAllister
'Pintail' is for 2 channel radio control, you control the rudder and the
sail position just like the full size craft. One standard and one micro sized servos (not included in kit) are used.
Construction is based on an
accurate ScaleSailing foam
core which you cover with thin
plywood panels to form the hull.
Most parts are laser cut for
accuracy and ease of use. The
cabin is built from 1/32" laser
cut ply panels and the deck is
laser etched with planking detail.
Finished with clear varnish the
plywood glows! The hull can be
clear varnished too or spray
painted as you see here. Masts
are wooden dowel. Rigging on the
'Pintail' is very simple, unclip one
line and pull the mast out for
transport, but Footy yachts easily
fit on a car seat fully rigged...
Add a dapper 1/24th scale figure (not included) cut off at the waist to complete the picture!
