Here are some photos of the Aquarama Riva scale model RC boat I have been working on. I got the plans from John-tom.com. The plans were free but a little unclear as how to assemble the interior of the boat. So I am trying figure the puzzle out at the moment. I built it from scratch and have run into a road block of sorts...    I have been scouring the internet looking for a way to get the parts that are tough to create from scratch such as the seats,  decals, windscreen and the brass that make the boat pop. I know I have asked this before but it's worth a shot...   Does any body out there know where I might be able to locate these items or am I just chasing my tail in circles?
<p>Dear Angrierbeaver,</p><p>Do you still have the plans??</p>
<p>Not sure how good these are as I am not a model builder, but there are some Riva Aquarama plans available here:</p><p><a href="http://freeshipplans.com/free-model-ship-plans/riva-aquarama-scale-model-plans/" rel="nofollow">http://freeshipplans.com/free-model-ship-plans/riv...</a></p><p>@Angrierbeaver, looks like you are doing a great job, you clearly have far more patience than I do! lol</p>
<a href="http://www.nitrotek-modellbau.de/rc-boote.html/" rel="nofollow">RC Boat</a> is best choice in all other toys.It is really a good attempt .carry on your work and completed it before summer season.After completing this model please upload some more pictures of RC Boat.
Thanks for your comment! I will be sure to put up photos of the completed boat on the water!
Try Model Expo for the brass fittings, they have tons of boat fittings. <br>For the windshield, you could try smashmolding heated clear plastic, or if you have access to a vacuum former (or you could make one it's not that difficult) you could vacuum-form one. You could make up seats in a similar fashion. <br>For decals, you can buy decal paper that you can print with an inkjet printer. I think Testors sells a kit complete with software. Check Micro-Mark.
Thanks so much for your input, I will give it a go and see what happens. <br>
I did a quick search .. is this what you are looking for? <br> <br>http://www.gianhien.com/model/retail/all/metal_parts.htm <br>
Apparently I was not looking in the right place! I visited the site and it is temporarily down. But it does look promising. Thank you much man!
