  • British X Craft GRP with accessories

    This is a 1:12 scale GRP hull with dive planes and rudder.

    Comes with

    2" 3 blade RH Raboesch prop
    1 x 3/16 Prop Shaft
    3/16 Oilite Shaft Bearing
    1/8" brass Push-rod

    I have lots of photos and a museum quality,very accurate model to take detail and dimensions from. I have no time to do this project, so it's up for sensible offers.

    Ideally suited to a 3.5" cylinder.

    Too many boats - some have to go.

    Here's an 'almost new' RTR German 212 with only a couple of small scuff marks on the lower bow.

    It has a 6 ch Wfly radio, Sombra Labs Receiver, KMC Designs Angle Driver & Failsafe, Snort System, D&E Sub-driver.

    $800 or best offer.

      Go on Mr Slater, you've been banging on about an X-craft for a long time, now's your chance to acquire the most accurate x-craft model to date. A big old tub at 1/12th, but no less difficult to handle than a 1/72nd scale Seawolf.

        Andy - as we discussed I'd happily buy a kit around the 1/18 - 1/20 scale mark of the X craft. Sure bigger scales do suit smaller submarines, but to me (and my personal view only), is that going too big with a smaller sub starts to cross over from scale model to ungainly looking toy.

        If I ever do either buy an X craft (if a kit comes out around the size range I'd like), or sewer pipe bash one, I'd have a very specific dive system in mind, -dynamic. The thing has bugger all free board / reserve buoyancy. The bigger you go however the more you need a dive tank / active ballast system. - Yet another reason why I'd like one in a smaller scale. It would be a 3 channel basic boat that I could pass over too the on looker or rookie at dive days and sub regattas.

        Think of that before your buy "cheap" pirated goods or download others work protected by copyright. Theft is theft.

                      Hi Mike

                      Any chance you would be willing to sell the X craft without the WTC parts? If so, how much for it alone?

                      Thanks Mike
