RC Model Warship Kits and Hulls

SHUTDOWN NOTE:
These hulls I have are all that I will have. Kits are being pulled as I run out of hulls, but I might not get the item pulled fast enough. I will let you know and the order can be changed or canceled as needed. I will also consult with you if the only hull left is not like the others we generally have had — some hulls were made to test a new technique, or as samples from a potential fiberglass supplier.

The ship kits contain the pieces needed to complete the hull and superstructure. This typically includes a fiberglass hull, decks, prop shaft(s), rudder(s), styrene deck sections, foam and balsa superstructure pieces, scale plans, turret covers, and instructions. It is enough to get you to a nice-looking, but not functional, model ship. Most ships will also require a radio system, batteries, bilge pump, CO2 and cannon system, and running hardware to be combat-ready. All ships are 1:144 scale. Please see our page dedicated to our fiberglass hull construction.


This USS Northampton Kit is an example of a Hull Kit

We have deck kits for many of the ships. Please see our separate page for deck kits for more information, and order the kits from this current page. The deck set is part of the hull kit.

We have masking tape for marking rib widths. The tape comes in rolls 3/8th inch wide and 60 yards long for $4 (buy now) and 1/4th inch and 6o yards long for $3 (buy now).

For the slightly more die-hard modelers out there, we are bringing back some of the pattern sets for wooden hulled ships. These are large format pattern sets that have the ribs and keel (and many include superstructure) for making the ship by hand. These are just rolled plans, and do not include any of the actual building material. This method usually takes a lot more time, but some people prefer it.
