Gaff Rigged sloop

I intended that this 20" LOA would represent a 30' boat. The model would be RC. The construction is the lift method with the inside carefully hollowed out. I followed no plan and carved what suited my eye. After getting the RC components installed and functioning I found the model even without the sails too "tender" and floating well below her "lines. A complete failure from the intended purpose. However it makes a nice shelf model and keeps the "Admiral " happy.

Tarbrush, it worked out good but I get the fun of looking at it once in a while and I learned a little about RC stuff.
