MM2084 HMS Goliath
As featured in Model Boats Magazine September 2013
A stand-off scale model built to an approximate scale of 1:144. This gives a model length of 49 inches (1.25m) length and a beam of 6 inches (150mm). The operating weight is around 12 pounds (5.5kg). Construction is from balsa, Liteply, plywood and some hardwood strip. The prototype was powered by a single 55 turn rock-crawler motor with a 6v 10Ah sealed lead acid battery. Using a two bladed 40mm diameter plastic propeller, a top speed of about 4 ft/sec (1.22 m/s) was achieved.
This model is suitable for those with some model boat building experience. Full construction information was included in September 2013 Model Boats
