Julie Mo Posted November 28, 2015 Share #1 Posted November 28, 2015 I'm working on a 1934 J-Class sailboat at 1:35 scale. I already knew the LOA and beam of the model were scaled correctly but watching a RC video of J-Class racing, I noticed an unnatural movement of the boats. So for grins, I decided to take the original specs on the 1934 Endeavour and divide them by 35. LOA - 129' 6" / 35 = 44.4" Beam - 22' / 35 = 7.5" Displacement - 143 tons / 35 = 8,171 pounds Sail area - 7,651 ft2 / 35 = 219 ft2 I'm going to need a lot of lead and a whole lot more canvas! How does your model size up? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
