In the early 50s Danish architect and former wartime RAF pilot Ejnar Billing exhibited a self-made model of a fishing boat in the window hobby store belonging to his wife. After the photo of the model appeared in a magazine, Mr. Billing overwhelmed in order to position dozens of pieces of the same model. Because it was not in his power so much to handle, it occurred to him that the boat will offer a kit - the first mass-produced kit with wooden frames with the keel, ribs and planking hull design mimicking the most real ship. This method of construction is quickly befriended by Mr billing models and began to conquer the world. In 1958, then founded the company bearing the family name still Billing Boats. Over the years, the design perfected and upgraded models in the '60s introduced the use of plastic moldings hulls, then embarked on CNC machines at the turn of the 80s and 90s in Billing Boats started to benefit from laser cutting parts. Today the company manages the third generation billing and floating RC models and mock-leafing table still represents the ultimate in marine modeling.
We are pleased to offer a series of kits Billing Boats from which you can build a gorgeous elaborate mock-ups floating remote control or create a stylish complement your interior with salty smell of the sea and the call of faraway places ...
Smit Nederland 1:33
Tugboat launched in 1979 to reliably serve in the Dutch ports. Actual boat driven by two machines with an output of 1,800 HP; propellers are placed in the rings and blades should be reversed, which along with twin rudders provide excellent maneuverability. Kit in 1:33 scale is designed for moderately advanced ship builders.
Smit Nederland has a body formed by plastic molding plywood with internal reinforcements, plywood deck and superstructure made of plywood and plastic parts. The kit includes a molded plastic hull and all other plastic and wooden parts needed to complete the model, dummy accessories (eg. Position lights, anchors, lifebuoys etc.), marine shaft housings and propellers.
To drive the model includes two DC motors range from 500 to 600, at least 30 A bidirectional controllers (depending on engine) and two 6-7 articulated 2-3S LiPo or NiMH batteries with a capacity of 3 to 5000 mAh.
For basic operation, in principle, sufficient even the most ordinary two-channel radio system; to control the rudder servo meet the current standard. But for right maketáře of course, is "duty" adding as much maketových functions (lights, sound module, water cannon etc.), which will require the use of multi-channel RC system - and the channel is never enough.
