Aerokits Sea Urchin
The Aerokits Sea Urchin open cockpit day boat with cabin was originally built by Les Rowell. Les made model boat kits and designs leap forward in leaps and bounds. In its time the boat is a freelance design that has been based on a typical day boat that was used on the broads and rivers in Great Britain in the 1950’s.
The Aerokits Sea Urchin kit has been modernized by laser cutting the components to make construction easy and not have the need to build a boat on a building board. A copy of the full size plan and full building instructions are included with each model. This kit has been designed for the discerning modeller that has either built boats or model aircraft before.
The kit contains all parts cut using our laser cutting technology that not only gives a very accurate and precise cut parts, that fit together without any sanding. But also details like planking on the decks and the cabin roof rails are cut and only need a lick with a piece of sandpaper then glue into place .
The Aerokits Sea Urchin model can be powered by a 7.2 volt battery pack with a 400 or 540 size electric motor or by i.c. power of .5-1 cc engines which are not in the kit. We also have not included in the kit any running fittings as we feel a lot of modellers will have or would like to choose for themselves.
We can however supply deck fittings, propshaft, prop, motor mount, rudder, universal coupling and paints required to finish your boat. As well as an extensive range of Radio sets, high capacity batteries and chargers to help complete your model and get you motoring along on the water.
