|Club 500 Ghost||Model Specifications:|
Weight incl R/C: 1.6kg
Without moving away from the successful basic design,.we have now produced this new edition in clear PetG plastic which we call the "Club 500 Ghost" particularly made for those who want to try something different and would like the challenge to build one and experiment with all the possibilities it offers to say light up from the inside with LEDs if you wish and use on Venetian evenings, or for the very adventurous and skilful even night racing. It does of course test your building abilities as all can be seen! However with time, care and a little patience I think you will agree a very rewarding type of model not available elsewhere.
Although PetG has been chosen for its clarity, ease of vac forming and impact resistance it does cost a little more to produce. Also included though is a special set of Ghost decals, and an acrylic methyl methacrylate adhesive which is required to glue PetG. The rest of the components supplied are as for the standard model i.e.; propeller, prop shaft & tube, rudder,/tiller, 550 motor and coupling assembly. The lighting that can be seen on our model in the photograph is of course not included but gives a good idea of what's possible.
|Club 500 Strike a Light||Following on from the success of the Club 500 Ghost model we have looked again at what we could produce as some modellers had concerns about not making a neat installation in that clear version which would be on view for all to see!|
What we have come up with is a sort of half way house in that by using an opalescent plastic this gives you the option of installing your own lighting as with the ghost model so you have the best of both worlds where by day the model looks white and your fitting out cannot be seen but as evening falls it can illuminated and looks quite spectacular on the water. No other model has been made before that can be lit in such a way. It is also supplied with a special set of new window decals in order to allow as much of the lighting to show through as possible.
