.049 GAS OUTBOARD
BY A. RUSSELL BLACK
HAVE always felt that there is a certain something about a boat fitted with an outboard motor; many will, of course, disagree with this but on one point they must agree and that is that the outboard motor is much easier to fit.
Having 'souped' up a toy plastic outboard motor, described in the April 1961 issue of Model Maker, I decided the time had come to build a really smart speed boat to suit this motor. Being electric and naturally requiring batteries my first consideration was the problem of weight‑ I wanted it strong enough to withstand knocks and yet light enough to have a fair turn of speed. Using batteries I have found that the model gives a lively performance and will not disappoint you, but those wishing real zip will find that lightweight accumulators are the answer.
