I have been making models for over
40 years now , but this is my first scratch built of this size, It was
totally scratch built, and is modelled after my brothers 44 foot Defever.
The model is scaled at 1/12 th
The motor is a Dumas 6 - Volt with a Dumas speed controller, The power
comes from a pair of 6-V motorcycle batteries. The lighting is mini
Christmas tree lights, powered by 2 AA batteries. The inspiration came a
long time ago wanting to have a model of my brothers 44 foot Defever. I'm
not getting any younger and figured I better get with it. Like I said , it
is a total scratch build with the only plans being pictures of my brothers
boat and the measurements of his boat. I worked on it all day , everyday,
and finished it in six weeks.
Thank you, Sincerely , Wes Whitlinger,
