Scale 5/16” = 1 ft

Length 36 “                

Power Electric

for Radio Control

My choice of the Boston Arrow was because it was the smartest ship in the fleet, and the most up to date with its look-ahead wheelhouse, single arm davit, and a tripod mast, besides the interior equipment. The dimensions of the ship are as follows: Overall length 116 ft., beam 23 ft., draught aft 13 ft. 6 in.. draught forward 7 ft., gross tonnage 190 tons. The ship is powered by a six cylinder 550 h.p. Widdops Diesel engine which also drives the main winch by means of a large belt. As I intended to fit a radio control set in the model I thought that a 3 ft. model would be about right, so the rather unusual scale of 5/16  in. to a foot was used making the model just over 36 in. a good modelling size.
