Windsor Slipper Launch Model Motor Boat

This is a 1:15 scale working model of one of Selway Fisher's latest designs - a 25' Slipper Launch along the lines of the traditional Thames type. Construction is for Balsa sheet with Balsa frames slotted onto a fore and aft girder before chine and gunwale stringers are attached and the hull planked in thin Balsa sheet.

Thin plywood could also be used. Whilst the real boat uses an electric pod for propulsion, the model uses a simple electric motor housed forward of the cockpit and connected to a shaft and prop. There is space for lightweight radio gear.

Go to the Windsor Slipper Launch page in Selway Fisher Design site for details of the full-size boat.
